quite new project! ratty retro more door mk1 (loads of new pics!) 128807 as im picking up a new project tomorrow!

Its a 1.5 mk1 golf GX with only about 70k on the clock! This is pretty much what it looks like at the moment (minus the bike!) although these pics where taken about 2 years ago:

new project! ratty retro more door mk1 (loads of new pics!) Mk1-1

new project! ratty retro more door mk1 (loads of new pics!) Mk1-2

new project! ratty retro more door mk1 (loads of new pics!) Mk1-3

Its been off the road for a couple of years so really no idea how much work it needs but i got offered it at a price that was too good to refuse and accepted without even going too see it! Apparently it still starts, drives and stops ok so fingers crossed!

Got a few plans of things i would like to change/do to it but gotta get it home first and see how much work its likely to need for an mot!

Insured it tonight....£84 for the whole year fully comp with all mods declared (staff discount is great!).

new project! ratty retro more door mk1 (loads of new pics!) Lol that was on a classic policy, 2nd vehicle limited to just 1000 miles so would not have been much more even without discount!

not sure yet, not a huge fan of forced rat look/loads of tat stuck on etc but will see how it goes and what condition the bodywork is in.

Quite fancy a change of wheels to something smaller & wider - i know ATS classics are already common on mk1's but think they suit them so well!

Alternitively i am one short of a full spare set of G60 steels....

that looks fantastic, looks like all it needs is the stickers removing and dropping over a set of nice wheels.

i love the look of 'used' Mk1's, especially more doors! Thumbs up

cheers mate, its already pretty low on shocks and springs but could go lower...unfortunatly there are more pressing issues for the mk1 and need to get coilies for the mk2 before i think about some for this!

Started getting rid of some of the stickers etc today as did not like "lower than a snakes boll**ks" etc anyway, let alone with the kids reading them!
