    Mk2 Polo Van Build....New rims...

    Post by milko on Mon Oct 05, 2009 6:51 am

    Thought I'd stick a thread up on this, as things are moving on with it again.... finally!

    As it was.... �100 ebay special....


    1.6 ABU lump to drop in....


    R6 bike carbs, for some extra horses and noise....


    Gen van panels....




    Some minor arch work needed.....

    How are the side panels fitted on? Welded, or just bonded?
