As you all may of noticed I have no attention pan let alone short so change things up fairly often.

Latest VW on the scene.

Polo coupe - I have other build threads but going to cut a long story short on here

Bought in December 2012 looking niiiice affraid


De stickers instantly

Put some alleycats on



Sourced a red bonnet


Bit of a rushed build thread sorry

G40 interior and MOMO wheel

Also have door speakers since the photo

Made a carbon fuel flap





Cleaned it




Just bought another better condition bonnet as well as clear front Indys and replacement headlamp as mine has a bullet hole (stone)

Also the height will be sorted soon but before then this is happening




If all goes well I'm picking up the 1.4 16v engine Thursday very exited just a few more bits to collect and she's ready fora heart transplant.

Ill be looking at around 125bhp which will be pretty fun

Sure there's more but for the time being - enjoy

lookin' noice Matt!! Good luck with the engine conversion

I reckon those allycats would look shweet on there with a polished outer lip and either red or black centers..... not very practical for winter though Smile

Cheers lads, and agreed with the wheels but being winter I'm loving that I can jet wash them and they look new!

Rocker cover back from the polishers


Yeah making a start on it Friday really hope to have it running by Sunday and get the carbs tuned properly ready for springfest

Can't wait to have a little pocket rocket and race Carlo ha

Looking good mate, but I think "Suzan" needs to learn from you. That mk1 he's got, looks like it been through the wars and just made it. Give a kid some advice, I say.

Keep up a good work.

Cheers lads really appriciate it. Ill be trying to keep it its too much fun.

Needs a few niggly bits I.e throttle spring - connect chock cable small bits but essential as lifting the bonnet everytime it cooled Down to adjust the clutch is annoying

Ill take anyone for a quick blitz if they want haha

If I don't see you Thursday (which I proberbly will) ill see you on the morning of spring fest
