    Polo breadvan build thread

    Hi there thought I start a build thread from a year ago from when I bought the car. I was 16 what I bought it as a car to learn how to do things on as I had use of a ramp at a local garage as I was a Saturday boy there. I bought it for 200£ with a months on it! I then got a mate at work to list everything that would need doing and there was a fair bit but I took it on. I needed to do starter motor as it was broken and wired up dodgy and a track rod end and new suspension all round which I went for a 60/40 ta technix lowering kit after that a mate done welding to inner and outer both sills which a wasn’t too expensive and was much appreciated as then after a few bulbs and a couple of tyres it passed the mot This picture was taken a few weeks after it passed at dubs at the park and I found pictures of some of the rust and me spraying it after my mate had done the welding

    Hello, New price - prices to sell. I will do copy/paste from this add : mobile.de add The car is great , but I have almost no time for it and other projects on my head. I need the space. The car has new timing belt,new battery, new clutch and new fluids. It participated in our local VW Fest 2018 and draws a lot of attention. When I drive it people notice it. The list of modification is very long, the car was built for the purpose of track day use, but is not stripped out and is 100% streetable. It is not 100% ready, it needs sway bar install and fixing of small things. I am not having enough time , actually I am having almost none for it so that is why it is for sale. I am confident to say that such Polo does not exist anywhere in the world, so here is its specs: - ABU engine block with documents - AFH head and pistons, CR ~11,5:1 - G40 gearbox plus 2 more gearboxes in perfect condition that go with the car ( have shorter gear ratios) - 4 carburators from Honda CBR900RR, jetted main jets and sealed air jet. - Custom airbox and custom made and calculated length of intake manifold - Custom 4-2-1 stainless steel exhaust manifold and SS exhaust system - all calculated for particular engine - Custom made suspension with coil overs, A-shaped LCAs' adjustable in all angles - Custom made frame to which the A-shaped LCAs' connect - Engine and transmission rest on stock 3 pieces engine mounts, plus added 4-th infront - Mega Squirt 2 - controls ignition when using petrol and carburators, constrols LPG injectors and ignition when LPG is used - LPG system spraying after carbs, tank in place of spare tyre - Deep Recaro front seats from 20th anniversary Golf MK.3 with reworked stock mounts to fit the Polo ( narrower) - 5x100mm conversion with 15 inch Audi A3 light rims ( 5,5 kgs/ each) - 1 inch brake master cylinder with 4 wheel disk brakes - 256mm vented fronts with ~235mm solid from Polo 9N on the back - Factory GT body with black roof vinyl in great shape, OE paint - Car puts down 115 wheel horse power, the attached graph is without the airbox and without the Mega Squirt - I used to run it on vacuum distributor without any electronics(can be returned in that configuration) - Prepared stock AFH intake manifold with BMW 2.0 throttle body and 190cc injectors - if decided to return to single throttle body

    1991 Breadvan GT

    I spontaneously bought another Polo this week... I recently had a mk2 that I sold in June due to buying our first house (once it's built later this year!) and needing space, funds etc I came across this lovely little Breadvan GT advertised on the forum and got in touch a few times with the owner, Ben. I finally caved in and made an offer and the rest is history! This is the third GT Breadvan i've had and probably the most original as well. It's done 74k, with head gasket, cambelt, water pump replaced last year for good measure when previous owner Ben bought it. My plans for her aren't excessive - I will fit a spare 4 branch, straight through centre pipe and G40 rear section that I have lying around and add a chip from PPP to add to the fun factor! I also have an uprated wiring loom with some Osram Nightbreaker ultimate bulbs as well as a good service. Bodywork is OK - a few scuffs and a dent on the rear quarter but all in all, i'm happy. List of bits and pieces so far that i've dug out of storage:

    '88 Breadvan

    This is my first car, a 1988 Polo breadvan. Currently completely stock and my first priority is to sort out the paintwork which has a lot of rusted stonechips and a large patch of rust wjere a previous fuel tank leaked. Bodywork is all solid however in person the laint lacks shine. Eventually i plan to lower the car on different wheels before chasing power however being 17 and having had my licence for less than a month the insurance is already ridiculous without any modifications.

    Polo MK2 1.05L CL 4 speed manual 83000~ Miles MOT December 2019 WILTSHIRE Time to sell the polo 😞 I'd rather it went to someone from Clubpolo as you've been so helpful over the past years. Onto the Rocco for me now. Brilliant little car, brought back to life a year ago and has had loads of work done. It took me 4000 faultless miles around Europe in may and did not skip a beat. It has been very little trouble. A simple car to work on, a great starter for someone wanting to understand how they work. Interior in good shape, no rips. Under my ownership it's had: New front tyres Head gasket and reconditioned head Top engine gaskets New dizzy, coil, plugs, rotor and cap Front discs and pads tracking arms ARB mounts New carburettor (pierburg, manual choke) New carb mount N/S top mount Coolant Flush Oil Flush 2 Services Rear Wheel Bearings Sills welded Respray (To protect it from rust mainly. Needs a good wet sand, cut and polish to finish it off in the spring) It's a good runner but I've got my next project on the road and I'd rather it didn't sit and I don't have time for the two of them. The exhaust has a small blow which is just an advisory at the moment but should be easy to deal with. Here's the build thread for her: I've got all sorts of polo bits too if anyone needs anything, give me a message.

    Up for sale is my Mk 2 Polo , very good all round condition. Features a 1272cc engine with single point injection coupled to a 5 speed gear box. It's not going to win the traffic lights grand prix, but it's no slouch either , and of course is very economical, not to mention cheap to insure and to tax, An ideal first car for a young learner or new driver , or perhaps a second car for popping down the shops or taking the surf board to the beach! Interior is in unmarked condition and everything works, including a tachometer ( extra luxury on a Polo ! ) Exterior is very good also for a 25 year old car, but there is one light dent above the rear N/S wheel arch Sunroof winds backwards and forwards without problem as do the windows, and the rear parcel shelf is intact with no extra speaker holes. Some service history , recent service with cam belt replaced. So all in all , a very original little car MOT with no advisories , until mid July 2019

    AutoGlanz | Mk2f Breadvan

    Hi Guys, First off I’ll introduce myself. I'm Olly, I am the AutoGlanz "apprentice" and I own our Mk2f Breadvan project. I'm also Joe's (The Boss) younger brother. I've been lurking on here for a while now and decided it would be a good idea for us to become a sponsor. Anyway, onto the Breadvan. I bought the Breadvan back in April with the intentions of having it as my first car without doing anything to it. However, that soon changed because it wasn't a very good image for the business, and I can’t help myself. It's a 1993 1.0l Breadvan that had seen better days. The previous owner, who we know pretty well, decided it would be a good idea to attach a homemade bike rack to the roof using a drill and 8 10mm bolts. The bottom of both wings were rotten and the passenger side had taken a nice hit to the front corner of the wing. Other than that it was pretty solid and has only 57,000 on it. It did need a good clean though, but that's not a problem when you work for a car cleaning chemical company. So, at the start of May i had this great idea that we should give the car a full respray before Waxstock on the 24th July and put it on a club stand for everybody to see. Let’s just say that the idea didn't go down well with Joe to start with, but he came round and agreed to be a part of the challenge. So i started off by buying 2 new wings and removing the old ones. I then thoroughly clean the inner arches and removed all of the wax oil so that it was ready for some paint. The first real progress was made when we painted the engine bay. With the limited time available we decided against taking the engine out so we will do this when we return from Waxstock. After this I bought wheels and lowering springs and shocks. The wheels were in a bad way so they have been refurbished now. The suspension was coated in our development ceramic and were left to cure. Next up i stripped, cleaned and prepped the interior ready for Joe to apply the paint. At the same time we painted under the rear bumper and inside of the wheel wells and the insides of the wings. Next up, getting the exterior ready for paint. We started off by deleting the rear wiper. We also removed the rear arch splats and welded up the holes. While the welder was out we welded up the 8 holes from the previous owners bike rack. We then shaped the whole of the exterior of the vehicle ready for it to have a couple of coats of high build primer. Next up we fitted the suspension and gave all suspension parts a lick of paint. Here's after it was fitted. That's us pretty much up to date apart from the weekend just gone. The polo is now painted, with only just under 2 weeks until Waxstock. Thanks for reading, I'll update this when we get some more done.
