Hi guys, recently bought a mk2f breadvan and need some inspiration for wheels, suspension etc. I'll upload photos when I can.

All the info you'll ever need is here. Wheel width i think 6.5j is the limit on the rear

 Figured out how to compress my 10mb photos ??, struggling to decide what wheels I want since I'm limiting myself to 6j. It could do with new plastic trim all around,bumpers and a respray but that's all gonna have to wait till next year with better weather. Also need to get the driver's seat restored since the foam has collapsed on the backrest?.

Thats a coupe not a breadvan which is more restrictive

So I recently bought some vw teardrops. Plan on getting them refurbished and polished but I don't know what tyres I should get for them, I dont want massive stretch as I would prefer grip

I would ask this question in the technical "wheels & brakes" section and there is a guide in the FAQ's in that section that covers wheel & tyre sizes

After some advice as I can't find anything on the forums, bought my polo with a sunroof sealed shut, it's a dealer fitted one so the glass lifts up. It's leaking through the seal so I'm wondering what I can to to fix it,cheers

Managed to figure out the stereo situation, had to repin the rem power cable as it wasn't lined up by its all good now. Need to swap the stock speakers for the alpines I bought but not sure on how I'm gonna approach that. Also can't figure out why my interior light doesn't work, I got another one and that doesn't work either so any ideas would be ace .

What size are the speakers you bought? You can fit 3.5” in the front and 6x4 in the rear stock, but anything other than that you’re going to have to get inventive!

Your interior light works off of fuse 11. That also operates the cigar lighter so check if thats working. If it is then its a fault with the wiring or the interior light itself. Hope that helps.   :thumbsup:

Cheers man I'll check over it but I'm getting the feeling it's the wiring, you wouldn't know how much work it would be ?

Best to check if you're getting a 12v feed to the light using a voltmeter. After that its a case of tracing the wiring back down the A pillar towards the fusebox and checking for any damage. If you're not getting 12v at the light and the earth is fine then I'd check the fusebox end first as you need to remove the windscreen to drop the headlining.

Been a while so I thought id update this. I've been driving the bready for nearly a month now and it hasn't missed a beat.

 

Within the first week I lowered it on an 80/80 mm kit after finding out the shocks were dead and the springs had been cut by the last owner. Then I've had a stainless steel exhaust custom made and it sounds alot better . The teardrops just fit under the arches with alittle work done 😂. Running 165/55r14 nankangs as1 if that's any help to anyone and they're alot better quality and grippy compared to the tyres on the original 13" steelies.
