  1. I had a rattle when driving at speed in my MK2F Bready that I traced to behind the diver-side passanger trim card. Took it off and found a right mess! The pipe that I presume the fuel line runs through (whatever it is its a thick rubber pipe) has totally rotted away with the flange that i presume used to be attached to the rear wheel arch section now rattling around (thus the noise!). The line rus through the arch so it seems water had been entering it's steel pipe surround and eaten through iut with time, then started on the pipe flange and eventually made a nice hole directly from the wheel arch into the car interior. I had been wondering why that rear window was misting more than the others - there must have been water pissing in through that hole whenever I drove in the wet... Here's a video First things first - why aren't there plastic arch liners on both of my rear arches?! The front arches have them - should the MK2F have them on the rear? If not it seems insane - I have a bunch of hoses in that arch coming from the fuel pump that are in direct line of fire from the wheel. Not to mention a whole load of angles, knooks and crannies where water can spray into. I can't see how I can get to the area to do a proper repair job - especially as this line (which I presume is fuel but who knows) is running through the hole. Is it worth just cleaning it, treating it and then caking the whole lot in a mess of body filler and just hoping for the best?
  2. Another MOT question for you guys. My 6n has quite a large rusty hole in the spare wheel well and I would love some insight into whether this will fail its MOT next month. I’ve stupidly not paid much attention to it for the best part of a year and it’s now time to start worrying. Terrible pics attached. Rust hole can be seen on the left of the second one in relation to suspension and stuff.
  3. Hi people Brought myself 1994 polo 1.0 boulevard. Just would like some advice on it. Got some slight rust on the top of both wheel arches. Spoken to someone who said I won't be able to get a colour match anymore. So was thinking getting some wheel arch trims. Struggling to find any online. Also is there any good websites out there for parts ? Do other car parts fit i.e. golf parts Thanks
  4. My car has some rust under the black plastic that is glued to the car, does anyone know how to get the plastic bits off and back on so I can remove and fix the rust? Any tips on getting rid of the rust would be great too - it's only surface rust thank you.

    Rust

    Hey guys I am having some issue with rust on my arches of my 6n2. Could anybody supply me with a full list of supplies and a step by step method for sorting the rust using rattle cans if possible. If not what would I need for using correct spray equipment (I have nothing)
  6. I have a mark 2 1986 Polo that needs a little bit of love. I would like to have a couple of panels and bumpers replaced, a respray and little bit of rust treatment. I asked a local panel beater who nearly laughed me out of his shop, he couldn't understand why I would keep looking after this little soul and never even bothered to give me a quote...how rude! Do you guys know any old Polo friendly body shops who will help. I am in Putney so anywhere near there would be perfect! Thanks :) Krissi
  7. I'm fortunate enough to be in possession of a 6N without arches made of dust; I'm thinking I should try to preserve this somehow but unsure of best way to do it... First thought was clean/degrease the hell out of them and go to town with Hammerite, Rust-oleum or similar but not sure if just this on it's own would be fully effective? Would epoxymastic be a good shout? Or should I just leave well enough alone..? xD
