So i thought id do a build thread on my polo gti that i bought almost a year ago and This is a work in progress and i don't have an infinite ending wallet so its been on hold for a while tbh but i absolutely love the car and its a shame its just sitting in my garden at the moment but it will get finished i'm determined and have got the skills to do it just not all the tools and money. So anyways i bought the car on the 3rd of June 2019 off my sisters boyfriend who had bought it 4 days prior to me buying it because i fell in love with it instantly and it was on my driveway till 8th of august when i passed my test so it was an incredible first car you can imagine but a month of driving it the gearbox blew up so i went out and bought a new car till i could get the old gal back on the road https://imgur.com/aJjmUvB
dart_strife posted a topic in Cars Breaking (For Sale)Vw Polo Mk2f 86c 92 plate Been a project of mine for years, and is near completion. It has been sat in my garage for over two years as I have been to busy with work, It was re sprayed oak green, new wings, and bonnet. Colour coded bumpers, I put in a G40 interior. New carpet, under lay and sound proofing. New trim inside, JBL speakers and new wire. New brake lines, bigger cylinder. Larger brakes from a Vauxhall astra gte powder coated and new kits ect in them. Bigger disks 256mms, new suspension all round. Brakes need bleeding still. Powder coated everything under neath it black, also under sealed the whole floor pan. Removed excess bits in the bay and smoothed it. Hid wires in the wings, battery in the boot. Larger radiator with coolant bottle on it, slim fan. Strut brace front and rear, piston bonnet raisers. Toad alarm system and imobilser, with central locking. Different steering wheel, new wish bones. Anti roll bar blocks for better steering. New boots an gaskets every were, new petrol tank. Metal number plates and holders, debadged in places. I have a boot pop, but is not fitted. Better speedo, with blue lighting. The car was a 1 litre 4 speed gear box, I have added the limited edition AFH 1.4 16v 100 bhp engine from a mk3 polo, a 5 speed box which is stripped to bare metal. This does need sealing as it has leaked, the drive shafts need re building. I have them with out the new fittings. The fueling system is a Yamaha fazer 600cc motor bike carbs with a piper cross filter. Custom inlet manifold and also engine mount. Self regulating motor bike fuel pump is all fitted in the boot hidden away, also had a new in tank pump fitted. I rebuilt the engine with new water pump and belts, piston rings and crank parts. New alternator, new brake discs, pads and shoes. New hand brake cable, and holders on the powder coated rear cross member. So theoretically is at zero miles, new sump pan also. Clutch was new, and ignition system was changed to remove ecu and make the bike carbs work. I have a stainless manifold and the centre pipe and back box are from the G40 model, all heat wrapped. They will need welding together, when the last bits are completed by the new owner it will need registering as a 1.4 ect with dvla to be legit. Tax should not change as it is under 1549cc, the roof liner will need looking at as I had to damage the back to get to the bolts holding the boot on as they were rounded off and needed changing when I had re sprayed. The body work will need touching up in places as it's been stored for some time. I will have more photos on request for serious buyers.
