My Dunlop MK2 Golf GTi Build thread and race progress thread thing...

Post by CQR Rusty on Fri 19 Oct 2012 - 18:41

Right, firstly, this may seem choppy as hell to start with, ive copied all the bits from various forums but anyway, here goes!

 Im taking the plunge into motorsport, and anyone who knows me knows im a MASSIVE whore for VW's, and the MK2 Golf being very close to my heart what will becoming will be a dream come true!

 In 2013/2014 I will be entering myself into the Golf GTi Championship, which is exclusively for MK2 Golfs ( phwoar!! ) with my fully self "minimum wage" funded car. Its hailed as one of the best and CLEANEST 1 make series in the UK! the actual target is to be at the first race in 2014 but i recon i can do Cadwell and Silverstone in the 2013 season which is towards the end of the season, approx 10/11 months from now!

Right, less talky more showy!



it may not look much now, but their is alot of reasons why i went for this car.
Its not rotten and bodywork is near mint (paint faded yes but thats nothing)
Its not modified (so it hasnt been Hooned around everywhere)
its Non-Sunroof, meaning a rollcage fits in much easier and neater, and 3door non sunroof shells are like hens teeth!!



Got my subframe out and fitted some nice polybushes!


Mid re-furb


Arms painted ECM blue ( i was painting blue that day haha )


Anti Roll bar re-furbed


That shouldnt be their Razz


Subframe Welded, re-furbed and everything fitted to it


Inside stripped!



Dash out!!

Now for that piddliy 1.3 to make its way and GET LOST!






Started painting engine bay ( on my driveway haha)




Crossmember re-furbed!



More goodies fitted lol


Nice rack  lol!

Meanwhile, inside........







Full '90spec C.E.2 GTi Wiring loom fitted! what a ballache!




and this landed today Smile

So thats pretty much where i am now, front hubs getting re-furbed, rear axle nearly finished, inside ready for Cage, soon to be painted inside and outside!

oh, and here is what it will look like!



So yea, thats me up to now!

Anthing that gets fitted ill let y'all know Smile

Post by CQR Rusty on Fri 19 Oct 2012 - 18:48

almost forgot to mention this!!
( i can remove this post if needs be, hope its ok though)








We all know about the VTCC Motorsports MK2 Golf GTi that I am building up for The Lubricant Consultancy Mk2 Golf GTI Championship with the help of Scott Underwood Auto Repairs and Tuning . For this, we have taken a Humble 1300 1988 MK2 Golf, and are currently transforming it into a fully fledged Race car, following a strict set of regulations along the way!
The Aim for the car, is to have it finished by Spring 2013 and hope to be in the championship by Late Summer/Early Autumn, Cadwell Park being our aim!

Now we do have alot of work to do between now and then but we are not afraid of a bit of hard work and we have every confidence that we can have the car finished in time if my budget holds out!


[small]Computerised Impression[/small]

We all know that Sponsorship is a major part of any team, Be it budget, Advertising, support etc etc and this is where YOU come in!

Here at VTCC Motorsports team, we are offering YOU the chance to help and [/b]SPONSOR[/b] our car by putting your GAMERTAG or PSN TAG on the Roof of our Golf GTi Race Car. This will cost £20 and your Tag will be on for the WHOLE SEASON!!!
Naturally this will cover the cost of the Vynal it will be made from and will help fund the car through its cruicial part of the build!

The car is going to be Re-sprayed into the colour scheme above in November, once sprayed, i will start to fill up the roof with all Gamertags?PSN names given. Each one will have its Individual Photo taken so you can see it on the roof, and if you ever come to an event we are running at, you will be more than welcome to come over to see for your self, have a brew and have a sit in the MK2 Golf! hell, if your handy with spanners you could even help out Very Happy

If you decide that you do want to do this, payment will be made VIA Paypal which will be linked from here and available once the car has been painted. It may take a small amount of time for your Tag to appear on the car, as i will be getting them made in batches, rather than 1 by 1 to save it becoming Expensive!
The Size will be roughly 6" Long and 2" tall ( ill make a demo and post a picture soon soon but its roughly the width of an iPhone and twice the length i think ) Starting at the back of the roof and working forwards!

Well, thats all for now, Awaiting the roll cage so it can be fitted, and then as earlier mentioned, ill be taking it up to my local body shop and getting her sprayed up!

Keep up to date with all progress on the CQR Club Forums ( www,CQRclub.co.uk) The VTCC Forums (www.VTCC.co.uk) or on Twitter ( @CQR_Rusty)

Thanks guys, I look forward to hearing any feedback and comments!

what are the rules of the series as far as modifying the car?

do they have a spec tire/wheels? can you use shaved tires?

do they allow forced induction and what kinda motor are you planning on dropping in there?

Post by CQR Rusty on Fri 7 Dec 2012 - 23:57

Right. this may make no sense, but it will after this post.

This is mainly all the photos though


So as many of you may know, Im trying to get into some real motorsport in the next few years and Ive known from day 1 it would be racing a MK2 Golf!
Their is 2 classes in the golf championship, Class 1 (1.8 8v) and class 2 (1.8 16v) GTis, Naturally the 8v is cheaper and i know the engine inside out after spending YEARS on them.

Well today, i finally bit the bullet, and bought myself a IMMACULATE starting base!



it may not look much now, but their is alot of reasons why i went for this car.
Its not rotten and bodywork is near mint (paint faded yes but thats nothing)
Its not modified (so it hasnt been Hooned around everywhere)
its Non-Sunroof, meaning a rollcage fits in much easier and neater, and 3door non sunroof shells are like hens teeth!!


ive still got alot of work to do to get it where it needs to be, but ive got my buget, so. Let the madness begin!!



This may be a bit choppy as ive grabbed bits from different posts haha

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Anway, after a rather "illegal" way of getting it home i set to work and did the first thing most people do when they buy a MK2 golf..... Polish it :mrgreen:




A few days past, and being bored and very low on funds, i did what i seem to always do soon after i get a new motor





Made my first proper purchase for her the other day too. A 16v Subframe, with lower arms and anti roll bar, all poly bushed for £48 posted!!

But after it arrived i noticed the subframe was a bit rotten, so will be welding it up geek

Just had the Arms blasted and primed at work today, will gloss them tomorrow and then take the subframe and ARB in and do the same!

One funny thing though, this car will look like a bloody Harlequin underneath as i can only gloss things with what ever colour i have in my gun Razz Otherwise i have to pay Sad

Oh, and here is an "artists Impression" of the Paint scheme im thinking of doing ( please ignore the fact its been done on FM4, but its Livery editor is 2nd to none!



Just need to get my grubby mits on a GTi rear axle and front hubs/calipers/servo etc etc from a 16v now and then ill move onto my next job on the list Razz
So yea, thats me for now!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cheers guys!

Progress is slow at the moment, still sourcing parts!






Little update!


Upon blasting the subframe, it has a slight rot problem, So got it cut out and patched up!


ARB blasted and painted


Subframe all painted up


Now for the funny bit





Now for a more tecchie bit!


Engine bay wiring harness removed!


Stripped



Well ive got the engine bay totally stripped out and now read for paint! but it then decided to chuck it down Sad





Started Painting engine bay






Bought this to tow it!

but unfortunatley had to sell this Sad











AGGGHHHHHHHH
















And thats pretty much up to speed! lol
