So after owning my Mk1 for two weeks and getting familiar with it all i decided to make a project thread (well more of a thread to show it off!)
So yes, i had been looking for a mk1 for almost a year and after a long wait was contacted by Pete and Daz (NASTYGRIFF) about a 1.3 3dr tin top they had just brought. Some of you may know them on here as they buy alot of mk1's and basically restore them and sell them on. This sounded like a great idea, so i decided to take the plunge and make the 170 mile journey to view the car. After viewing the car in its rawest form i decided to put a deposit down!
So now i had to wait for them to respray the car, give it a service and get it MOT'd! The next four weeks went incredibly slow for me as i couldn't wait to get my hands on the car, especially after being sent teaser pictures of the car!
Just after the respray.
Waiting for me to come and collect!
As soon as i got in the car to drive home i fell in love! Daz and Pete did a really good job on the car an would highly recommend them, really helpful with everything and the car looked great!
So enough storys and more pictures! I gave it a clean when i got home, and had a little play around with the car with the bumpers off!
After owning the car for a week i decided it was time to get rid of the manky old seats which were in there and replace them with some GTI grey stripe seats. I purchased these form joe90k, with a set of doorcards and parcel shelf, before i picked up the golf itself, so during the four weeks wait i decided to clean them up a bit!
Before and after
Before and after
So now it was time to swap the seats over, which is such an easy job!
Rears out and time for a quick scrub
Rear bench in
Now thats where im up to this the car so far! my plans are to ort out the stereo and speakers (nothing chavy!) get some ats classics on it and then see where it goes from there! but so far loving the car and ownership (my first car owned in my name too )
so i shall leave you all with my favourite shot of the car for now
A long time since ive updated this, not a great deal has changed but i thought i would update with some pictures over the past year
Need to re do these badges so that they are matte black
New headlights fitted
Engine before a little tidy up
New smoked rear lights and terrible exhaust
German Plates fitted
and the tidy new exhuast!
My staggered bullet wheels to go on, 7j front 8j rear with 175/50/R13 nankangs all over
and the most recent shots with the wheels fitted (yes it needs to come lower )
This thread is no way near as exciting or technical as the majority on here but still somewhere for me to dump my photos Thanks
