So i havn't updated this for a while but i have been busy working on the front end rot now. In all honesty it hasnt been too bad with both inner wings in good condition, and the passenger side outer wing virtually rust free too, the drivers wing not quite so good with a little rot around the lip but i reckon it can be saved.
The main area of concern was the rust in the centre tower section which had completly rotted through leaving the slam panel very wobbly

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0548

You can see in the background the mk3 gti that has kindly donated its ABF engine, and maybe brakes to the mk1 project tongue

So i found a replacement genuine front lower repair panel on ebay, it fitted nice, and as the upper section was rust free i decided not to buy a pattern front panel. Only problem was that rotted through tower support panel, we needed a soulution, i thought about finding a breaker mk1 and cutting out this section, but Lee came up with a solution using a mk2 front panel cut down since the bonnet catch is identical, it looks a bit different but does the job very well Smile

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0587
project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0595

All welded on by Lee, another top job mate Thumbs up

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0590
project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0589

Also stared to repair the scuttle panel, wasnt really rusty at all so what there was was ground down, treated and filled

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0591
project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0602

Ive spent this weekend prepping that front panel, filling sanding and priming, and this is how she looks today..

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0600
project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0601

Also came across this not 5 miles from home, couldnt believe it since ive been looking a while, and this is in great condition too. I cant wait to fit it, i fancied something a bit different Smile

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0604

BBS bodykit already in mars red! will need painting though as a bit orange looking Laughing Also same guy i got a spotlight grille with red trim surrounds cheap, another thing ive been looking for, i havnt decided whether ill run the spotlights yet, or put the trim on a standard grille, ill wait till i see it with the kit fitted and then decide, so i have some time lol!

Anyway thanks for looking peeps Thumbs up

Today i took off the cylinder head to go off for a re-skim, i noticed a small leak on the back of the engine by the cam pully before i degreased and painted it last weekend :(

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0650
project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0651

There was no blue smoke or overheating when i had it running it the doner mk3, or cross contamination of oil and water so im guessing its just the oil pathway area that failed, so im just going for a skim as a matter of course and back together Smile

Piston bores seem good too, no lip on the cylinder and still see honing marks..

project mk1 golf gti mars red - Page 4 IMG_0654

While i was there i also refitted the wings, driverside seemed to go on and line up fine, obviously is missing the bottom bolt at the moment, but the passenger side will need more persuasion to get the gaps right Razz
