Off to a good start Cameron. 

Thanks!!:)

 

Got the front wings off and started taking out the glass last weekend. Windscreen and back window still need to come out along with one of the side windows. Then the engine needs to come out and the body work will begin... Decided on what I'm doing including interior,wheels and colour. All will remain a secret for now. All I'll say is it won't be for everyone:ph34r:

Over the last week or so we got a move on with the polo...

It now has no engine,brakes,suspension,fuel tank and only have the windscreen and side window to take out then its a bare shell! The petrol tank fell apart and the rest was held on with some rust.. Now the bodywork and smoothing begins:)

For some reason I always thought you couldn't remove the front slam panel from these like on a mk1 golf.

She's well stripped anyway. Much bodywork to do?

Its just tack welded on, it was wrecked so had to come off for a new one, good bit of bodywork now we have had a proper look around it yea, few dents but not much rust.

No major updates yet... Just been doing bodywork, got the remaining glass out and took the doors off, once we get a welder then the hole can be sorted and the underneath can be painted. Aim to have it painted some time over the next 2 months as I have now finished school..

Has been a long time since I updated this and alot has happened...

First thing done was to weld up the hole in the drivers foot well. After that the bodywork began. The side van panels were made and tack welded in, a template of the filler cap was made to smooth it off. The boot was then smoothed including the wiper hole, washer hole, badges and the holes for the plastic unit which held the lock. Then the engine bay was smoothed, welding up all unneeded holes. Then the filler came out..

Then I decided to go a step further and started to remove all the seam sealer from the inside.. Followed by filling all the unused holes and removing the dashboard.
