    1994 Polo Coupe CL 1.3.…..track car and everyday car (not that I use it everyday, I bike to work)

    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track Polo005

    Had the car about 2 and a half years (maybe more like 3)

    Bought it as a MOT failure for £165 from Jacko’s scrap yard in Beverley…..maybe a little expensive, but is was the right model, had just had a full service & a full new exhaust fitted

    It had failed the MOT because the garage couldn’t get the rear brakes to work properly
    Turns out the was an adjuster missing from the rear shoes…..£2 for a new one from VW….I found the missing adjuster in the car at a later date, in the passenger side door pocket & I’ve no idea how it ended up there
    It also needed a suspension spring, so I got a set from Euro Car Parts for about £55

    Replaced the missing wing mirrors with standard mirrors

    Pulsar GTIR Bonnet scoop had already been removed before I got it…..so the filler left on the bonnet had to be removed and the holes that had been drilled in the bonnet needed filling

    “Bad boy” bonnet extension got ripped off and binned…..had to get a grille cos that was missing

    there was upside down Shitron AX spoiler on the roof when I got it (removed before the photo)…..it was held on with wood screws, so those holes needed filling and the roof needed painting

    I got Matt to sort the various holes, fit Astra bonnet vents, paint the bonnet black and paint the chequers on the roof

    Kept the M3 style skirts…..wish I hadn’t cos I can’t easily get a trolley jack under it when its on 13’s

    Matt sorted the bucket seats and modded some standard sub frames to suit…….

    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track Seats001

    rear seats etc. have been binned

    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track IMAG0066

    on 3 wheels on its first track day
    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track JavalinTrackdayMAY095

    About 2 years ago Matt was given some orange paint to try out…..it’s the same type paint as used on Dyno-Rod vans
    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track Javalin

    Paint pretty faded now and needs repainting…..£60 a litre & that’s trade price………Clean for the first time in ages so took a picture
    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track Jaffercake1

    Lyno (or however its spelt) in the back to cover the dints in the floor
    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track Vuu042

    13’s for the road…..ATS Manta wheels
    Final Update??........Orange Coupe - Road & Track Polo7

    On Manta 14’s for track days, still to low geared as it hit’s the rev limiter at 100mph in fourth

    No stickers going on this time
    Black vinyl door cards
    Paint the 13 inch ATS wheels black
    Lower the buckets a little….mod the sub frames
    Try and find a private plate
    Get rid of some more weight…..sold my fibreglass bonnet to Heartagram DOH!
    Move the battery
    Smaller washer bottle
    Very hard poly suspension bushes…..maybe even aluminium

    not sure on the price as yet

    putting a 1 litre engine & box in it this coming weekend.......along with Fox interior

    i'm keeping the wheels......have a set of 13" alloys i may fit, other than that i'll find some steelies

    its got MOT til May (i think).....tax til end of March

    ..

    had a lot of people ask about £££ & when i'm selling

    fairest way maybe to stick it on eBay......not sure

    ..

    best way is for people to come and look at it.......then make me an offer

    had quite a lot of PM on various VW forums asking

    i think the fairest way is going to be eBay.......rather than people complaining & saying things like "i PM'ed you before they did"

    i'll only start low.....with no reserve

    maybe even put a silly price "buy it now or best offer"

    don't know
