its home! and now the work truly begins..
that’s absolutely stunning, you must be over the moon!
I can only agree, it is Stunning!
cheers guys, i love it. just the joy of remembering where all the little bits go now 😀
Ha putting them all in that bucket made sense at the time I’m sure.. but now not so much 😉
Tho I bet most of the folks on here could ID *most* bolts or part without having to run to etka…
Ha, yes I bet! Pics tomorrow, but so far this week I’ve fitted sound deadening everywhere, carpets and rear seats are in plus 90% of the heater core/ventilation is put in
I hope you like Jigsaw puzzles?
not really 😀
cant really do much more in the interior without opening the doors fully, so needs wheeling outside on a dry day. Monday hopefully. As per the pics rear seats, carpet and heater core in. Also ran phono cables to the sub amp in the rear while i could.
Also trial fitted the Kamei hoodscoop, i like it..
yes im working on it… interior is 90% in, rear bumper is on as is spare carrier getting exciting..
lockdown does give you the time to do stuff…
replaced flange seals on the rear diff, fitted diff protection
engine arrived! And fitted! slight calamity in that the ecu i had was faulty and kept the injectors open, resulted in a engine so full of petrol it was coming out the inlet and exhaust!
sorted that though!
as you can see front of the car is back on. 😀
engine has been fired up and run up to temp!
new arb fitted.
next, err not sure, still lots to do!
well things have certainly moved on, all back together. and MOT passed today!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀
oh wow congrats!! awesome 😀
Brilliant work, its big daft smile on your face time!
Thanks, indeed happy times! As you know, always little bits to get on with to keep me busy. Trying not to think of getting another project….. Ha!
well, it has ventured out.. have done about 40 miles or so. Drives lovely even though i havent done the alignment yet.Driving characteristics have changed slightly with the gti ecu and 268 cam, not much happens below 2200rpm, then its pretty quick for a heavy lump. had a bit of an oil leak, turned out to be the cam oil seal. Had a spare so swapped that over, bit unusual for a new seal to leak, but it happened and it got sorted!
Took it up to Epsom Downs and took the agreed value pics for the insurance 😀
