    I like that exhaust, I had a really nice note to it.
    JB weld it on and seal it up. lol

    The leather and suede is great. No issed with that at all.
    Apart from the rear side panel, it looks like someone attaked it with a chisel.

    Its got a nice recon reaxle as well, so it handles alot better................Should have sold it by now really. lol

    What colour is yours?
    Mine was moonstoon.

    Can you see the shape of the car's frame slightly through the panels?? You could on mine, on the rear wings.

    And don't you just love the 'Britain's Got Talent buzzer' sized hazard light button also?!!!! lol.



    For those who don't know.........

    Silver I think. lol
    Not sure what name pug gave it. I'll find out later.
    I try not to spend to much time looking at it.
    I open the door, drive it, it knocks, drink fuel and get out with a smile on the face. lol

    The coolant fan packed up couple of months after we got it. I love the fact that they put the relays in a non-water proof location right at the front so they rust out and then fall apart.
    I stripped it down, found half a dead bird and made it so that the fan comes on fully at 90 degrees. sounds like a wind turbin kicking in but it does the job.
    The best job ever on this car is at that some point it had the front bumper resprayed, the person who did could not be assed to take the bumper off or cover the front grill and rad up, so painted all of that at the time but never preped it.
    So its all flaking off and only half the fan has been sprayed silver.
    Its amazing!!

    These bits^^^^ make me think you've some how bought my old one!

    You've probably got 'moonstone blue' too, which is pretty much silver.

    Here's my old lover (you can see that the tailpipe isn't quite as it should be. Its off centre, and melted part of the bumper!)....

    And for anyone who wants to know, I finally got my starter motor off my mk2! The solenoid part is totally goosed, so ordered a new/refurbed one, arriving tomorrow for me to fit. Do I need to lube anything on fitting a replacement? first time I've ever took a starter motor off! lol

    Nothing that I can think of mate.
    Some lock tight on the bolts/nuts might be good but apart from that no.
    Check the cables and see what the contacts are like and give them a clean if needed.

    Heres a couple of pics of our pug. Taken on the day we got it.

    And yeah but the big red button is a bit of a warning sign to the built quality.
    "opps its broken again, hit the button"

    Good stuff, didn't realise the bolts that hold the starter motor is part of the front subframe mount bolts, but I supported the engine to get the last one out realising how long they was. So weather permitting, the mk2 should be alive tomorrow. :)

    Nice one dude.
    Have you tried stripping down the old starter and cleaning it?
    How bad is it?

    Not sure mate, I couldn't even get the three crosshead screws off the solenoid part, but it looked tired and rusty, so a £60 recon job is a better long term bet for me, since the car's a keeper.

    yeah good point.
    Its not a hard job to strip and clean but for that price and since the car is a keeper, it does make sense.

    I got a habbit of taking every thing apart I take off my car. lol

    The 3 screws are a pain to get out. a good screw driver and a good hammer all ways helps.

    If you're interested, here is some pics of one I stripped (I was bored and had one spare.)

    Going back to our convo about Conspiracy Theories the other day - I have come across this. A supposed collection of the 'Majestic 12' documents leaked many moons ago.

    I've been reading with interest - validity questionable though.

    I was toying with the idea of buying a mk2 Golf last year,but as it would have been a daily driver i decided to get something newer.

    Would love one with a 20VT engine to keep as a toy!

    Alright sweethearts,

    Dane, when you trying to scare your dad?

    Mikey, It is very entertaining ride. He had some work done to it and pushing about 350BHP (so I was told), which is great but its a right pain trying to get the power down.

    The pug has been dropped off at the garage to get fixed.
    Got a quote for some body work repair on the A4.
    and I bought a jump rope. :)

    any thing interesting happening in the world?
    I'm bored of building PCs.

    You should. A nice clean car for holiday.
    £5 down the local hand car wash, cheaper than a jetwash. :)

    No idea mate. I'm leaving it with him and waiting for a phone call. In no rush.
    He has till end of next week before I start chasing.
    Well, I'm in a little rush cause I want to get my car in to the body shop but I'll wait cause it will keep the misses happy.

    Back now - did I miss anything major (can't be bothered to go back through the thread).

    Had a great Weekend at Thruxton for the British Touring Cars, did a load of maintenance on the house including replacing a rotten fence.
