  2. Should be fine. VW have been doing flex fuel engines for Brazil (VW GOL) for ages. Only modern petrol Polo that can't do E10 is 1.4 litre (63kW) FSI made from February 2002 to June 2006 Not sure why. Maybe aluminium injector rail? Fuel hoses have been Ethanol safe SAE J30R9 for ages. https://www.gov.uk/check-vehicle-e10-petrol I'm not sure now I've checked for a 1996. https://www.hagerty.co.uk/articles/maintenance-and-gear/everything-you-need-to-know-about-using-e10-fuel-with-your-classic-car/ "However, the RAC has war

  3. It's been a bit warmer than is comfortable in the shed of late, but I still managed to get a bit of rubbing done. The offside is mostly done. Got started with the nearside turret, and ran out of time. Should get back on it over the next weekend.

  6. Got another coat on this and rubbed it back during the week. Finished rubbing on Friday. Another bit ready for the paint bloke. Before getting stuck in to the engine bay, I thought I'd better try fitting the doors to make sure the arches line up right. The nearside was spot on, but the offside was a bit off. It looks like I put the arch profile a little low at the front of the quarter panel. It was only 2 or 3 mm out, but it would have bugged the hell out of me if I didn't correct it, so that's what I did next. The front of the arch was re-shaped wi

  7. Looking at the online VW/VAG parts websites none cover past 2016/7 so it most likely will be a main stealership parts department or if you have a friendly local TPS that will deal with private customers they might be better than the stealership

  8. It would be useful to know the year and spec of your Polo. Without that info it’s difficulty to know where to start looking to make sure you get the right part. Alternatively go down to a local breakers yard and see if they’ve got what you are after.

  9. All fitted today. Like a new car. It was the original clutch but the guy that worked on it, wasn't the guy i spoke to when i dropped it all in, so he got rid of it. Thanks for your guidance dudes and dudettes.

  10. I squirted in some GT85 into our banshee of a heater motor going on 3 years ago and it hasn't made a peep since. Expected it to be a very temporary bodge as well

  12. Got a grey primer guide coat on there and began rubbing on Friday afternoon. Began with the fiddly slam panel. This was as far as I got on friday afternoon, but I managed to finish it off today. Seen here not long before finishing it off. Should get another coat of epoxy primer on there tomorrow, and once it's been rubbed again, I can get stuck in to the last area for paint preparation - the engine bay.

  13. Maybe the Interwebs led you astray with self-excitation of generators. "how deep puddles are." Once upon a time, before Polos got lowered, I realised a flood I was driving into (a Landrover had come the other way after all, so should be passable, I thought ) was way too deep for a Polo, when the dipped headlights suddenly lit the water surface from below. I hastily reversed with high revs. In the dry I got out to check the car, which was fine, and talk to the Landrover driver who had stopped, and another wave soaked my shoes and feet. I have now found a Lucas plu
