  1. Well it all started with getting along with the guys at the vdub shop. They had the low light there for a we while had been stripped and sand blasted. The owner was been hard to contact and wasn't doing much. I made a silly offer and got no where. In the end they wanted it gone. Several emails from me to the owner ended up no where. Aiden and I had been talking at the vdub shop trying to help him get it out of his way so he emailed saying sorry we have had enough and have pushed it out side. Saying good luck with the sale it's just going to rust. I then got a email back from the kombi owner saying sweet we have a deal you can pick it up when ever. Meanwhile aiden hadn't put it out side was still in side. Anyway picked it up today. This is pretty much beths kombi as I'm not aloud another car. Got to many bills to pay. She had been sitting a while in the same spot collecting some dust. Token petrol station picture of the new car. And now I collect rusty volkswagens in my spare time I had priced up all the patch panels before going in with the deal so this shull be fun. I also have to finish my valiant before I can start on this. We will see how that goes. Chat about it over here
  2. “I have no idea why why i'm doing this, it was a good idea at the time.” The story of this project begins with a little 1.3 Mk2 golf 3 door with a 4 speed manual delivered to MR J.G. Morton of London on the 4th of April 1984. The car was then imported into New Zealand in 1987 with 23000 miles on the clock. It enjoyed regular servicing and maintenance right up until a couple of years ago when someone decided the car was totally worthless and used it as a piss wagon. They drove it up a beach path and into a tree. It was green stickered, dereged and stuck on facebook for $300 which is where I come into the picture. I bought it to nab the trans and make an auto 1800 Mk2 golf a manual. When it was bought home we had a good look and realised the engine blocks were different. Wrong box...shit. A few bits were taken off it to make the auto pass a warrant and the little 1.3 was parked at mums and forgotten about for six months. Now I want to get it on the road. So, are you sitting comfortably? Good. Then we shall begin. First step was to clean the inside of the car out as it was foul. I picked up The seats and door cards out of a GTI off trademe so that saves me getting the originals fixed but the rest of the interior still needes work. Ill get to that later.

  5. So after 6 months after my initial post about my beach buggy that i picked up, things slowed right down, and haven't done a whole lot, but i thought i'd start a new thread regardless! Back in December, i picked up a beach buggy, where the only items that were salvageable were the interior, gearbox, windscreen body and roof. Basically everything else that was metal, was stuffed, and i mean stuffed. Rust stuffed. Will post pics when i work out how?
