    scratch not sure really........got the Polo to back to standard after the PPC magazine challenge on the 13th of this month

    put that up for sale......

    may have to tax the red Golf so i'm not without a car if the Polo sells quick

    motor out of the Polo is going to be painted before it goes into the Golf......and then it needs dropping in the Golf before going to Matt's unit for welding & paint

    all the brake pipe are been replaced before MOT........they maybe OK enough to pass MOT, but i want them to be right

    ..

    to sum up..........it will look like a complete car when it goes to Matt's unit, but it may not be running

    when Matt's done his magic & it's running it's going to Beverley for MOT

    .......i think it will be on the road 1st November clown

    no pic's from today.....

    we've been round scrapyard today looking for suitable airbox's and washer bottles............could find anything of any use Sad

    problem we have is the airbox from a Polo GT won't fit between the inner wing & cambelt cover..........& any airbox i fit needs to be were the washer bottle currently is Evil or Very Mad

    then we went to Matt's unit..........stripped a lot of bits off a green mk3 Polo coupe that we're using as a donor for some of the fuel injection & wiring parts

    this car is also donating it's engine/interior so i can put my Orange Polo back to standard & sell it to fund this project

    ......


    the plan we had for converting the car to fuel injection was to chop a Polo GT engine bay wiring loom down to just the bits needed for the engine.......then splice this into the current loom (mk1 Golf)

    well today we desided not to do this


    we thought it would be easier to fit a full wiring loom & fusebox from a mk3 Polo

    but Matt was talking to Spen and he's recomended we fit a mk2 Polo interior loom & fusebox with a mk3 GT engine bay loom

    This way all the mk1 Golf dash switches & stalks will work (with the mk2 Polo wiring)
    Very Happy

    so, our Matt's off to Jacko's scrapyard in Beverley in the morning to get the bit's we need off a squareback mk2 Polo thats in there

    had Matt doing wiring tonight........he had got his head round what was planned better than me

    NEW PROJECT - mk1 Golf Driver Goldgolf8thoctober

    he removed the engine bay, dash, most of the interior loom........& the fusebox

    the only mk1 Golf wiring thats left is rear light, no. plate lights, wash/wipe & heated screen

    fusebox is mk3 Polo......as is almost all of the interior loom

    dash loom is mk2 Polo.......so that mk1 Golf switch gear plugs in

    engine bay loom will be mk3 Polo GT

    ...............

    bit of a list of jobs to do

    got some of the following parts on order

    full poly bush set

    G-Max front shocks.......to go with the Jamex rears & -60mm springs i already have

    front & rear wheel bearings

    front top mounts & ball joints........wishbones look OK, may get Matt to shotblast & paint them

    using the front brakes off the Orange Polo.......re-building the contents of the rear drums

    new brake pipe/flexi's

    need a mk2 Polo radiator........ordering one tomorrow

    Totally amazing project chaps, love the colour and have always liked MkI Drivers, you just don't see many of them around so they always stand out to me. Really looking forward to seeing this back on the road. Keep up the good work.
