Hi guys New member here! Thought I'd start a build thread for my mk2 coupe. I originally bought this car when I was 16, i got it up to a driveable standard and used it for 6 months or so after I passed my test, I then sold it on and regretted it ever since! After many years (almost 11) I finally saw it up for sale so I bought it back and after a very eventful trip home (and a debut on traffic cops) I started stripping it down for rebuild. Firstly I started on the engine, I tried turning it over by hand and it was having none of it so I pulled the head and was greeted by this very unfortunate sight So I cleaned it all out and started honing the cylinders only to find this
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
figured i might start a thread on this little project, i got offered a 6n2 for £270 and i cant say no to cheap cars, she was in pretty decent condition , just flaking paint on roof little dents everywhere and the rear bumper was in bad conditon but i didnt care about that when i brought it , the more i cleaned the car the more i fell in love with it and the little imperfection started to become a big problem to me so i though ive allways wanted to own a harliquin so i decided id make one from this 6n2
