    Breadvan build

    Hi guys thought I may as well show some work I've done over the past few months! Currently need to fit a few things and do some work/chassis stiffening etc. And possible respray ready for a g40 engine some time next year. Anyway say if you've ve got any sugesstions I'm always keen to do things to it haaha
  2. Tryna go back in time on my 94, located most pins, the newer style 2f pin has a blue wire and a blue/white wire but my early mk2 clocks have just two blue wires, anyone help with figurin it out? Tried retracing the loom to see if they came from same place but they dont and i dont have an early mk2 loom to follow back Cheers
  3. hello, I think the Haynes wiring diagram for a mk2f polo (1990-1994) has an error on the single point fuel injection schematic: the petrol pump relay (NUMBER 23, low on the left) is wired in a very awkward way: it appears that the fuel injector (NUMBER 28) is wired in series with the relay coil (relay pins 85 and 86) and the fuel pumps (NUMBER 30 and 31) via fuse F1 which is nonsense. also the +12V arriving at the relay contact 30 (battery positive) is switched to contact 87 which then goes to battery positive via the key switch??? i had a friend search in ElsaWin but apparently there is a wiring diagram only for polos from 1995+ (mk3), and I cannot find anything on the web either... do any of you have an alternative wiring diagram to show, please?
  4. Hello pleb here. I have finally got round to buying some wheels for my '93 breadvan, they are 13"x6J BBS offset is 33. wondering what the best bet for tires is and not having problems with scrubbing, car is not lowered at all. cheers for any help, again sorry for being dumb.

    Mk3 Polo from the Emerald Isle

    Hi Folks πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ A few months ago with the encouragement from a few close friends of mine I took the leap and decided to buy a project car. After looking around for a while, nothing seemed to catch my eye. So the search continued, and one day I stumbled across a little MK3 polo for sale. The car was advertised as needing painted .... LOL So I went to view the car and this was the shape it was currently and actually the way I bought it the car surprisingly needs little welding but has had the interior ripped out as previous owner had planned on turning into a van but hey ho I'm sure you guys on here will help guide me to completion of this project. Mk2f polo 1.0 4 speed 51,000 There has been a lot of changes and planning this last few months which I shall update you all with soon.

    My mk2f polo conversion

    So, recently purchased a 1991 mk2f polo with a 6n2 engine and gearbox conversion. Stripped the whole shell out today, no seats inside but a lot of wiring hanging around. Looking for ideas to use for the rear as I’m leaving the back seats out so wanting to board it and carpet the rear but need some great ideas to go with! Thanks guys

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    For sale is a 1.3 single point injection out of a 1993 mk2f polo and the 5 speed gearbox to go with it. The engine was running absolutely fine and had just been through mot days before removal, ive replaced it with a gt engine. The gearbox whines a little at 30-40 mph. There is no ecu or wiring supplied with this engine as it is still on the vehicle. Collection from bath.

  9. So just a bit of a progress report on my Grandads old Polo (which he had from new but I tracked down after it was sold 8 years ago) As you can see she is looking a bit like her old self now, so far I have repaired the battery tray, replaced battery, brake pads, wipers, passenger wing, steering column/ignition,, aerial, lock set, fit a period Sony face off radio and thoroughly cleaned the interior too. Next on the to do list is to sort out the bits of scabby bodywork and replace the fuel tank and tyres πŸ‘πŸ» As she has been off the road a few years I’m hoping that I can’t get her MOTd early next year and hopefully take her to a Polo meet or two πŸ€— I intend to keep her standard as the day my grandad bought her back in 1994 πŸ‘πŸ» Welcome me any thoughts/comments/advice Cheers πŸ‘ŒπŸ»
  10. hello, I need to change all rubber fuel hoses by removing the badly rusted compression fitting that connects the plastic (nylon) lines to the rubber hoses and using an oetiker-type clamp to connect the fuel line to the rubber hose (see red circle in photo as example of compression fitting used to connect plastic line to fuel hose), however i wonder how to avoid kinking or crushing the plastic line when fitting the clamp: does someone know if there is a brass insert INSIDE the plastic line like the one in the second photo that I can reuse? does anyone have suggestions for the job? did not find anything using the search. The reason I cannot check is that cannot do the job at home and I plan to do this job at a friend's place on a weekend and i would like not to leave the car at my friend's place for a week... he probably wouldn't like it too, i imagine πŸ™‚ the car is a 1993 mk2f 1.0L breadvan thanks in advance!

    Dora v2

    Dora is back, and Vio's styling choices have not improved. Quick summary of the past couple years: - My purple and gold Nissan was hit while parked up overnight, the damage was similar to Dora's but I'd had enough fun with that one and decided to scrap it and upgrade. - Bought a Mercedes c200, learned it had a blown head gasket, spent £1k fixing it, lasted a year or so but then the engine died again (no compression in 3rd cylinder) so I sold that on as spares. - Bought a mk4 Golf with a blown head gasket (what is it with me and buying cars with blown head gaskets), engine seized up after like a month and sold it for £50. - Figured it was about time I get that old Polo of mine back on the road. I figured the bodywork was in reasonable enough condition that I could throw it in for an MoT, but it wouldn't start. Drained the fuel tank and tried some fuel cleaner, changed the rotor arm, dizzy cap, ignition coil, spark plugs, but it still wouldn't spark. So I handed it over to the garage who ended up replacing the whole distributor, and did a little bit of welding on the offside sill - which is the bulk of the remaining rust taken care of. Then they put it in for MoT, and it passed with no advisories. Nice! First thing to do (after hitting up maccies) was a little tidying - I got rid of the old seat covers and tacky ebay floor lights+gear knob, and tried scrubbing out all the dirt and dust from the seats with a vaccuum which partially worked, and I'll think about steam cleaning them another day. Also reinstalled my old head unit, but rather than hook back up my 6x9s I decided to treat myself and finally make use of those door pockets with speaker holes I bought 3 years ago but never got speakers for, for whatever reason. They do have blue lights, but I haven't wired those in as yet, as I'll run a new loom around the car to replace all of the old lights I had with some new stuff, and I'll connect them up to that in the near future. They do sound good, though I was planning to use my 1050w sub with them... but I can't find the damn thing. I assume I forgot to take it out of one of the various cars I've had before getting rid of it. Ah well, at least I know where my next paycheck is going. Ice Blue is Dora's new colour. So I bought some LEDs - interior light Clocks And I wired up a t10 to replace that crappy little yellow bulb for the heater controls (as well as replacing the cigarette lighter with a blue one). I'll probably add a second one later as well, but it looks pretty good as it is. Finally the last thing to do was try and clean off 3 years of crap from the outside. Gave her a fairly unceremonial wash, and tried to polish some of the obvious stuff out. I got as far as the bonnet and front quarter panel before running out of elbow grease. The crap on the back end doesn't seem to want to polish anyway, probably due to my previous rattle canning efforts, and some of the paint is peeling off anyway - so one of two things is on my to-do list: a respray (which I can't afford for sure)... or a wrap. This is quite fun 😊

    Rather than attempt to rattle can my new bootlid, I wanted to check and see if anyone has one first. For a mk2f coupe, needs to be Alpine White, and preferrably within 50 miles of WN7. Also if you've got a back bumper, the plastic cover(s) for the inside of the boot, and a good condition parcel shelf I'd be interested in them as well. Anyone?

  17. So I've had my mk2f (Dora) back on the road for about a week now. Passed her MoT last week, insured it (still Β£100 a month thanks to my 3 non-fault crashes, ok then), and got my job back delivering pizzas. Coming back to the store after a delivery last night, and I notice a police van behind me. No blues on so I don't think much of it, but then he follows me into the store car park. He asks about the car (if it's mine etc.), and then says it's not taxed. Ah bugger. I forgot to take the SORN off. So then my manager pops out and starts having a go at the coppers, who say it's not insured for business use either - but Dominos provides business cover for drivers, so they ask for proof of that. Manager goes to get it while I'm trying to figure out how to tax a car on my phone. Worth noting that police round here are notorious for impounding untaxed cars (another Dominos driver just had his taken a couple weeks before I joined). Manager shows the coppers our insurance certificate, but then they just say "We'll follow up on the tax thing later", turn their blues on, and bolt it out of the car park. Turns out there's this lad who was driving a definitely not-road-legal bike around town. Some people say he was already being chased by police, but all we know for sure is that he rode straight through a red light at one of the busiest junctions and hit another car - and he died at the scene. This happened at the exact same time, and the police left to deal with dead guy - giving me ample time to tax my car and get back on the road with no more problems. So last night some random idiot on a bike literally died to save my Polo, and I appreciate it πŸ‘
  18. Hi to all fellow VW enthusiasts! So I just recently purchased my 2F β€œMatch” edition which was the last of the run out models so came with the sport radar alloys and Sony flip stereo as standard (so a slightly special model 🀣) What IS so special about this particular car though is that it used to belong to my grandad from brand new and I remember the day that he got it back in 94. Growing up I spent many an hour in the back of his Polo on trips out with my brother. Long story short but the car was sold 8 years ago (my grandad sadly passed away) and that was that...... Fast forward to the present day and after attending a few car shows I have been wanting an old VW in my life to play with (it was an itch I had to scratch) I never thought though that I would actually track down my grandads old Polo!! Even though it had been off the road a few years, a deal was struck (she had changed hands 3 more times and was just festering on a driveway) some fettling and a new battery got the old girl going and I have started to bring her back to her former self (so far, new steering column with ignition, new front wing, tyres, brakes and a service) and I intend to keep her standard as the day my grandad bought her πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Thanks for reading my story, welcome any thoughts/ideas/suggestions! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

    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.
