You may have seen this on another thread a few months back, but thought it would be best to start a new thread as I have new plans for it...

http://fendubbers.forummotion.com/project-cars-f13/jon-s-1989-polo-saloon-t9635.htm

Got this Polo a few months back, but no major progress has really taken place, only little bits here and there as you'll see by the pics that follow.

Had the car transported today to where I work, where progress should be pretty rapid. Already have most of the parts to get this project going, just need two O/S wings. Any idea's where I may get hold of some ?

So here's how the car saloon stand's today....

I had one of those as my first car. I would swap my MK2 for one in an instant. Decked on bandies would be sexual

The plan is to make it as mint as possible mate! New sills and rear arches, plus a fresh coat of paint and she should be looking clean! Thumbs up

Also looking at a decent set of coilovers and some new rims. Hopefully it will follow the lines of this saloon:

Done a lot of work on this since the last post Smile Just got some welding too finish off and then the car is going off for paint with Jay in the middle of next month. Also bought most of the parts for the restoration, including brand new G60 Steelies, brake shoes, brake disks, bearings all round, bushes etc. I'll get some pictures taken tomorrow Thumbs up
