Right then, its about time to add my projects after looking at everyone's on here so here is my daily MK1 which I bought around 5 years ago, just before I left the UK to travel OZ and NZ for 2.5 yrs

I bought her bogo and had only covered just over 53k. I had a couple of dents removed with a paintless dent dude when I first got her and there was a scratch I had painted too but otherwise the bodywork was near mint back then. the paint is getting a little thin now though so will be looking at a respray pretty soon hopefully.

Anywho that's a little bit about her and now for some pics from start to now;

First pic I took after purchase


Gave her a quick look over but with FULL VW service history she was sweet and the 1.1 ran great too


Clean...




Beast


Added some new steelies just before I left for OZ


Went to OZ, NZ and US for a while leaving the MK1's (& VW's) tucked away ready for my return.....







Came back and unwrapped the MK1's - missed them baaaaad!




THEN - I decided to make a few mods...

I added some coillies and borrowed my splits from other MK1 for my first Fendubbers meet


Then I refurbed some revolutions myself and slapped them on for a while


I liked the way she was looking now but the 1.1 just wasn't cutting it and the blue interior made me feel sad just looking at it so it was time to bite the bullet and do the conversion

Old 1.1 out and ABF built up ready for installation, all taking place around Jan/Feb - I was under her ("That's what she said") one day as it began to snow, not fun...

Ready


I had done all the conversion myself (bigup myself ) but had relied on Boggbrothers to setup the carbs and jet them accordingly. After a few little issues I was really pleased with the motor and the Carbs but she wouldn't rev past 5500rpm so I knew something wasn't quite right and from research everyone did say how lean they can run, so I booked her in for a rolling road session

Peter Baldwin was a top bloke and together we drilled out the main jets and she went from 143bhp to 202bhp (although clearly generous rollers) but I would estimate power to be closer to the 180bhp range which I was loving on the way home. Oh yeah, and I should mention something about the sound too I suppose...........

With the motor now sorted I had to do something about the revolutions as the 165's were not going to last long and traction was poor at best so I decided on some Compomotive TH Mono's 15x8j ET 25 wrapped in Yoko S drive 195/45's

I put the FF style tacho in so that it can be removed without damaging the dash etc and I did intend to remove for daily use and only install for qtr mile/track action BUT once you have used a shift light its hard to go without out so I'm sorry dude but it stays...

PS Did I mention that; I live a quarter of a mile at a time.................

Yea i love this too and you are doing an awesome job so far Simon, and i think you and lee are inspiring a few of us on here with the 16v conversions and im wanting to take the bike carbs route aswel.

Once i get a valver engine fitted, let the racing commence and im getting the feeling a 5dr family car could show up the 3drs lol.

Any more future mods planned.

Carbs are Keihin ZX9R's...

Cheers Luke and bring it on 5dr!

I was going to put NOS on too but the clutch slips when hot now so I think the power is on the limit right now before going down a more expensive route. With this in mind I will have to be happy for the time being and hope for reliability for now.

The only mod for the near future is to get the arch's rolled/cut and maybe a respray depending on cost...

I have added some smoked front lights over the weekend so I'll get some pics up soon.

It's the only way dude! and it is true...once you have a had a shift light it is hard to do without...especially at night when you get blinded by it Smile Makes the cars behind you wonder is what is going on!

I bet it does look a bit strange

Fair enough about keeping it, just thought it just doesnt suit the theme of the car. Least its functional If you need bits for your carbs ive got a whole lot of parts for them Im running those on my bike.

Right, I need someone who is skilled in Alloy TIG if anyone can recommend? I need 4 wedges welded onto my inlet manifold at the right thickness and angle so I can drill an tap the threads for my foggers to sit in the injector port on the head...
