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.

Another small update.

Received a couple of parcels today so got them fitted. I bought a new universal aerial so me and Joe decided to tackle that first. The fitment is pretty poor but it'll do for now.

I then fitted my new clear indicators. Once again the fitment is pretty poor but the originals didn't fit that well anyway so they will do for the time being.

I then decided to get the tailgate built back up , then finished it off with my new pressed plates.

I also bought some aero wipers and got them fitted, although they will need to come back off so I can paint the wiper arms.

So that's it for tonight, I also got a few other bits fitted such as wing mirrors and check straps but didn't get any photos of them bits. Here's a photo of after I finished for the night.

That's beautiful and the fact you didn't  just spray just the outside you went all out spraying the inside too as it could come out the vw factory. Isit Manilla green?

      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.

      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

      ITS A MASSIVE WANT
       
       
      Hi all.
       
      looking to do the mongol rally 10k mile rally from U.K. to Mongolia. Ideally we want a 1.2 breadvan but open to ideas. Can be 1.0 but no bigger than 1.2.
       
      I have sponsor on board and it’s for charity. Men’s mental health charity as I have lost a few friends and other known lads to this illness
       
      Therefore the we are looking for car needs to be a cheap car, requires TLC. I have a garage on board for the work and parts needed to renovate this car to get us across 1/3 of the world and then Fix up to sell after.
       
      The car will then be also be auctioned off at the end of the rally for the charity after being made presentable.
       
      so I am not after a freebie. Just a good sold, basic car for me and the Mrs to achieve this and raise awareness and cash for a well worth cause.
       
      WHAT you GOT.
