crappy weather dampened my efforts today, got hardly anything done and everything was being difficult.

removed the old loom, pulled the dash out and removed the sound deadening to lose some more weight

no real benefits bud, it's just environmental crap, carbon cannister to absorb vapours / carbons from evaporated fuel in the tank and the egr valve (exhaust gas recirculation) jast takes some exhaust gas and puts it into the inlet to be reburn upon combustion to reduce emissions.

refitted the modified loom earlier and wound it over, chucked some fuel in it then fired it up for a couple of seconds - enough to make sure things are ok. now i knew it was all good i could refit the front end

What use are you planning for this? track toy or general pocket rocket?

Great progress, you sure as hell don't hang about!

thanks bud, just a daily beater to preserve my bora.

thanks chaps, didn't get any work done this weekend - saturday was a golf gti box, clutch, gearlinkage replacement and fit coilovers and today was 6n polo lower arm and track rod/end and seam wels a polo g40 gearbox mount and weld in a support bar to brace the mount. good news was i noticed a couple of bits in the corner of his garage - some 14" steels with 195/45/14 uniroyal rubbers and a stock g40 wheel - £115 later they were all mine!

fitted them on with some old caps i had laying about

If you are going to try your hand at bodywork mods make sure you fill those recess on the front and rear bumpers as it makes the car look sooo much better :-)

Good work. Was the engine just a straight bolt in job? What about the wiring side of things?
