PostSubject: MK1 Golf "the more door whore"........KERMIT   Wed Aug 17 2011, 22:18

Well hello all,

Now those that know me will have known that i havent had the best last 12 months, those that dont know, you dont wanna know!!

Anyway Project Grubby/Dennis the menace is dead, well to me anyway Rolling Eyes she holds too many bad memories and i dont have the enthusiasm for her anymore. (any comments on when did you have enthusiasm beware..i still play with guns and fight in cages for fun lol)

Now i had hankered over a mk1 for a few years, had seen ones go by, seen Lee's 9a take shape, Simons hit the road, Marks fall apart on the drive!! and when the bum chums sodded off to worthersee this year i thought f##k it, its now or never, i need a fresh pallette, so after a bit of looking and searching, asking questions and whatnot i made the splash into mk1 ownership and et voila "the more door whore"











She turned up on ebay as "unfinished golf project" with 12 hours to go, so alarm set, i got up at 7am on a weekend morning and chucked a cheeky bid on with 20 seconds to go.....well i won!! and my mum n dad got for me as a birthday pressie, for the grand total of......

104

Yes i s**t you all not, myself and Mike went and collected it, Thanks dude Thumbs up and when we rolled up at a professional body repair place we knew we might be lucky excited every panel and rust area has been cut out, replaced, repaired and primed!! it was completely full to the roof with panels and boxes.

Apparently the owners son had bought it, decided to rebuild it, realised he had no skill then lost interest (sounds familiar Embarassed ) but had bought new wings, bonnet, lights, front n rear, and a dozen boxes of bits..600 worth of receipts for parts.

so i've since fitted the non-genuine wings two dozen bloody times Evil or Very Mad ponced around with the bonnet, and stripped the interior. Speaking to mark, he reckons a weekends worth of final prep and its ready for paint Smile

So yes, its a tintop, yes its got 5 doors, and yes the bodyworks been done.. its what i wanted to build and im chuffed to bits!!

Comments welcome and pics will follow....i will finish this one


i wanna be a bum chum Wink

[strike]

Thank for comments so far.

Not done a lot to it this week, mainly due to all hands on Marks mk1..

Have decided to bin the pattern wing that came with this as i just wasnt happy with the fit Mad and have used a set off Lee, (thanks mate) they are a better fit and only need the slightest of fettling...i think 15lb sledge should do it.

Just a few more pics that i took this time other than the ebay pics:





(wings not bolted at the bottom, but far better than before already!











Someone obviously went to a lot of effort making sure all the dodgy areas have been rectified/replaced, so i intend to continue this and do this one through to the end and enjoy it.

Plans will be on hold till after edition due to other mk1 needs, but hoping to pick some needed bits whilst at edition Smile

Cheers

You wont get much done dude if you keep sitting in the drivers seat with your head out the window making brum brum noises....



Looking the other way wont help either...



Its a love hate relationship already, Jim loves to make brum brum noises but the more door whore just wants to suffocate Jim...

Weekly update time.....

Well edition has been and gone, and although marks mk1 didnt make it, we had a good time working on his, now its time to get back on track with our own projects..

Soooo....Edition threw up some ideas and plans, i have a fair idea what im planning,

Went back to my wings as when i hung the doors, Lees wings lined up nowhere near my doors....yet fine with his!! hissy fit



Today, i stripped out the exhaust system, as its being replaced. and took the plunge and decided that this will be getting a clean smooth bay with tucked loom, no coolant lines etc. heres how i left it today







Tomorrow i'll continue to clean out the sealant grime thats in it. Seems like this empty bay thing is catching:







Will continue to update, but will let pics do the talking. cheers Thumbs up

if he does it and it looks pooh, i'll know not too and vice versa hahaha Laughing

Anyway heres drivers side progress.
Before:



After:





Coming along nicely, got some bits to trim off, like washer bottle mounts etc. was going to do the raintray, but after some deliberation its staying...gotta be there for a purpose right? Suspect

Cheers Thumbs up

Well a bit of an update since wednesday.

Been on it a few nights the last week, im away next week so tried to get ahead of the game a little. i've taken the plunge and gone the opposite of Lee.....raintrays out!! Surprised ive got a few little hard to reach parts to get out but its 99% out now.







well its a dirty job, but someones gotta do it!!!!! (could make that into a song Wink )

interiors pretty much sorted now too, due to some lucky dealings.

like i say, away till next weekend but then back on it. welding up the holes, passenger side, then its strip the back end and off to powdercoat.

if your thinking of stripping and cleaning your bay, but want someone else to do it............dont ask me!!!!!!! Evil or Very Mad

i know just the people:

Well weekly update....not that i think anyone reads it haha.

managed to get a day on the whore today, with the help of Si, my human lightstand and spot weld finder...cheers mate Thumbs up

cracked on with doing the final parts of the raintray. then took out the battery tray, all remaining lugs and brackets:









removed all the crap and sealant gunk from behind the raintray, took it down to bare metal to remove any inperfections, then gave it a quick coat of primer. just got the other side to do, remove the heater thingy and plate the gap.

Plans for the week are to do the above, then get the gaps in the bulkhead filled and sorted. then work down the other chassis leg.

cheers if youve looked, i'll keep updating
