Hi all Thumbs up Kinda new to the forum so i thought i'd start a project thread for my Golf Very Happy

Well i bought it about a year ago from surrey and she looked like this .....

R055i's Mk1 Golf G60 Project ..... 5454434462_0589daa61d

Its a 1600 GTi with a few nice little touches (fischer tape deck, VDO gauges in centre console, original Blaupunkt tape player, MOMO steering wheel)

Had a stock 1600 Gti lump in her, so i was planning on putting twin 40's on and making a bit of carb noise Very Happy .... Butttt a G60 cropped up at bedford for a good price and i couldn't really resist Razz So i picked the new heart up and got it sitting at home on an engine stand....

Degreased and cleaned the lot and gave it a lick of paint (aluminium and wrinkle black)

R055i's Mk1 Golf G60 Project ..... 5111945361_c1724f3ed9

The whole car went over into my mates workshop where all the rot was cut out, had a new pair of sills, rear quarters and a rear valance

R055i's Mk1 Golf G60 Project ..... 5044643348_b92f131b2f

-Bahn Brenner stg 4 G60 kit
-Fast road clutch kit
-258mm mk2 16v brakes
-Fully poly bushed
-Coilovers
-ARB kit
-And i have a set of 14x7 Borbet T's currently on my polo to go on
