Recommended Posts

Dubfather

Does anyone know of a 2f breadie with Mk1 Golf arches?

seen a few Mk2’s done but not been able to find an example of a wide arched 2f.

 

just looking for pointers really as I started doing one today lol 

got the drivers side rear in more or less, but interested to see pictures of a finished one if there are any out there :smile:

Mk2 and 2f are pretty much the same shell

 

There was a thread of exactly that but the pics no longer show

Yeah the shell is similar, more or less, but the wraparound on the bumpers is pretty different which makes major headaches with the fit as you have to taper the curve and flare of the mk1 arch into the bumper line....can’t continue the arch all the way down into the valance  on the rear like with a Mk2 breadie....and the front doesn’t have a valance as such at all so that’s gonna be a pig too! lol

I have a few photos of a silver one  with MK1 golf arches which looked the business and fairly OEM will try dig them out.

      Hey, 
       
      After a pair of Mk2/f front struts. Don't need dampers or springs or drive flanges or bearings, just want the strut/knuckle.. whatever you want to call it. 
       
      Also after a LATE Mk2f steering column (with the UJ at the bottom) 
       
      Based in Coventry but can travel a bit or pay postage. 
       
      PM me. 
       
      Cheers, nick.

      Hi everyone, 
       
      Little background story.. when I was 17 I hastily bought a terribly painted purple breadvan, drove it 4 hours solid home and brought it to Lancashire. I sold it a long time ago and recently on my 21st birthday found out it was for sale so bought it back! (Slight downgrade from the abarth but the sentiment this car his is unbelievable). Now to cut it short, the car was a stead and never once let me down. 
       
      I towed the car back to the garage, it’s been off the road almost 3 years, and was apparently in “dry storage” however, there was litres of liquid under the back seats, rust and damp everywhere and a lovely infestation of maggots in the firewall. Regardless, I put an old knackered mk1 fez battery up, hooked it up to a jumper and first go started up, although it was running on 3 cylinders. I then put a new dizzy cap on (correct and correct firing order), new plugs , battery and changed cylinder 4 HT lead as it wasn’t sparking hence the 3 cylinders. The problem is the car now won’t start and the plugs are getting seriously wet, it just comes gushing through, after drying the plugs many times and trying to run it solely on ether still no joy! (I forgot to mention, 4 gallons of old fuel it started up on. Have since drained and refueled as well as cranked the crap out). I was just wondering if this is a common problem or anyone has had the same? Any help massively appreciated! The car has covered 171k. Thanks!

      I did a full head gasket change recently, new gaskets seals water pump belt and skimmed serviced head. After putting her all back together and fixing an ignition problem she is still running a little rough I think (I can't tell if it's a normal running sound because I've never owned a polo before and she was in this condition when I got her). I took her for a test drive yesterday and after starting up and putting the choke in she kept stalling going into first. I had to put a load of revs on to get her to move. After driving for a bit it stopped being an issue. I colourtuned the engine before the head change, should I retune now the head has been done (the leak was on cylinder one front right), and could it be a mixture problem? I also put a pierburg carb on to replace the old one (another 1b but with manual choke and no external reservoir, maybe the reservoir is causing the lack of fuel to the cylinders)? Sounds like it could be a misfire but I've got the timing bang on and all the plugs are getting electric (got a stroboscope) so maybe I've cocked up the head gasket? I've got a compression tester now and I'll do one after the weekend, I really hope it's something carb related though because the head was a pain to do . ..
      It's a MK2 1.05 HZ bready
      Thanks for all your help with her, sorry for the mountain of questions, just want her to be the best she can be!

      Hi everyone,
      This is the start to my project of which I hope to complete through this year/ start of next year! It is going to be raced with the hopes to be able to be one of the quickest cars out there, the video below is what I'm against from, 120 ish micras to high reving fiat  unos! its not gonna be the easiest to be able to get up there but I think I can accomplish it? it is going to be fully spaced framed with the only bits belonging to the car being the panels and engine, but even the engine is going to be modified: with the hopes of getting it to rev to 9500 rpm with out shitting a rod lol!  
       
       
      Sunday 7th of January:
      I bought the car and got it home and it is now sat out side, and will be sat there for another 2 weeks till I start to strip the remaining items off the shell and get ready to chop the floor and make a start to the space frame! (IF all goes to plan)
