Not long till Brands now Rusty. Cannot wait. I'll be there ready & waiting with the camera mate Smile
By the way, is there any chance that I'll be able to gain pit access so I can take snap shots of you & the car in the pits as well as on track?

So back to it again!

Turns out I have to re-wire the whole car as I was having a nightmare finding the correct loom, i got lucky and foiund someone breaking an Early model GTi so landed the full loom for £40 


dash loom out


Dash and column out


Modified my Steering column to sit lower


Everything back in


Fitting the engine and headlamp loom now ( nightmare )


Sorting out the gear linkage... gayness


Coolant hoses


New clocks as the new loom wont fit the ones i have





Brake pipes are also gay

Sourced aload more parts though, so long as the weather is good tomorrow, will be having a busy day!!!

They'll be on Motors TV at some point. They're in the same paddock as the VWAG races, so if you see that series racing somewhere, then the Mk2 Golfs are always on straight after them.

New Baffled sump Smile


New Windage/splash tray ( they dont tell you abou tthis shizz on Forza Wink



So upon removing the old sump, I find an almost brand new Oil pump has been fitted to my £100 engine! Win 8-)



Sump fitted, maby should have given it a fresh lick of paint like but ah well haha






Finally secured the wheel arches and bumpers properly


Single lamp grille


Scratting around under the back end again....


Another brake pipe done Smile


Boot pins




Kill switch pull chord fitted Smile



Decided to give it a quick wash Smile

Not much left to do now either Smile

Oh, and this happend Very Happy
