    My Mk3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Right, 3weeks ago my car was 5minutes away from being scrapped, but i decided against it at the last moment.
    So got a few problems sorted on it, and carried on modding.
    Heres how its looking at the moment:-

    GSI spoiler fitted and sprayed by myself, i am suprised how well the paint came out. Sportex twin 3" zaust also fitted this week.

    Now with proper meshed bumper and grill, you can't see it in the pic but there is a blue cold air feed behind the grill


    Still got some Irmscher ph2 smoked side repeaters to fit(thanks ffoeg), and got a gsi boot panel to go on the rear, should look nice, the black against white.

    It wasn't till yesterday that i realised how good condition my car is actually in, seen a few white mk3s in last couple of weeks, J/K/L reg, and some of the arch rust has been terrible, i sorted my rear arches out, so mine are fine, no rust anywhere else.

    Let me know your opinions,
    cheers
    My mk3,117K, and the engine is still going strong
    shame about the car shell tho,lol.

    TBH it had a few problems, it was cutting out all the time and refusing to re-start.
    And the cvjoint was completely gone, and couldn't turn the steering wheel without metal to metal grinding.
    I had just had enough of it
    scrap man was on his way when i thought, for what it will cost to fix the problems, £100, i couldn't get a car as good as mine could i????
    So scrap man arrived, i said i changed me mind.
    And it went from there, i sorted the cutting out with a new ignition coil and module. The cv joint was replaced.
    The alloys have brand new tyres, bought the spoiler, sportex exhaust etc
    and i changed the oil, and serviced it etc, all myself which i hadn't done in my life before, so i was pleased with doing the work myself
    And now everything is fine.
    Thanks for your comment mate.

    LOL, yeah the side repeaters will be sorted as soon as i can find someone selling some ph2 bulb holders and part of the wiring.
    BAD-Yeah i am beginning to think it was the right choice now, hopefully come MOT time in July it won't need much doing, and if it passes that i may look for gsi front and rear bumpers.That would really finish it off, and maybe colour code the door handles.
    If i keep it long enough may even get round to engine conversion
    Cheers for your comments
