Just bought my second mk2 after about 4 years of wishing I never got rid of my first one. She is in a right state as fuel filler neck, wheel arch, fuel filler flap and battery tray is rotten. There’s general surface on near all panels where paint has been damaged. And one half of the car is rattle canned. As far as I can remember the polo was taken off the road in 1998 to be used as a donor car. So pretty happy to do the work to get her back on the road. If anyone else has a black mk2. I’d love to see it as I’m thinking of respraying it back to gloss black.
Hey people, Here's my new project :1988 MK2 Polo Coupe S I've been kindly given the car from my house mate who recently had taken the car off the road due to a few issues. - fuel tank leaks over half full ( new tank from vw heritage sitting here now) - leaking radiator/ expansion tank ( new rad arrived last week ) -CV joint nearly exploded (replaced at the garage last week) Lots of plans for the next few months it's got a fair bit of rust so that needs addressing before winter.
Greetings to all, my name is Oleg, I am from Russia. In our country, second-generation polos are not very popular due to the small number of such cars, and so I decided to look for communities outside my own country. And so about my baby: 1992 release, engine AAV, coupe, well, or a hatchback, 4-speed gearbox. I bought it in 2013, it has a lot that worked badly, there was a lot of putty on the body, but I was happy to move from car with carburetor on car with injector, I was most attracted by the work of the engine, it worked like a clock even at an air temperature of -30°C, and I was not scared by the puffed putty on the body. First of all, the technical part was brought to an acceptable condition and it became my daily car. Here is a photo of how it looked after the purchase: It looks pretty good on the back, but the front look was not as whole as I thought... As it turned out - this body was in an accident, there was a head-on collision, and the left spar was curved, and the hood with front fenders needed to be replaced. Some time later, I managed to find the front fenders and hood in excellent condition. I don’t have a photo with an old hood, but there is a photo with old fenders and a new hood: Then I replaced the front fenders, and also installed the missing part of the front panel: The grille was also replaced: For comparison, posted a photo as it was and as it became: At that time I was very pleased with my work, however - it was 2013. He lived with me in this config until 2015, then I had an accident, because of the lack of a bumper amplifier, all my work was destroyed. After that, I ordered new body parts: bumper, bumper amplifier, front panel and grille with headlights. I decided to complete the work before the new year (it was in December) Here I got to the front panel: Instead of a normal amp bumper was bolted unknown origin design. All of this has naturally been removed from the body: All new parts were installed in place without difficulty. I don't know how you call the front panel, but we call it TV: And everything is in order... I will continue the next days, see you soon!
Evening guys and girls! ive not long got back from paying for my breadvan I won on eBay for the princely sun of £56! It's going to be a restoration project for me and my 6 year old son. She needs a fair bit of love after being stored in a barn for the past 10 years! Its due to be collected next weekend so I'll post some better pics when she arrives but here are a few from the eBay ad... look forward to picking your collective brains when the time comes and posting regular updates of what's been going on (may be a long resto as I'll be trying to "teach" my son along the way) but anyway...just thought I'd say hello!
