Right iv finally had a chance to crack on again with the car, where it was last just got the new head on, put everything back together and couldnt get the engine to fire was turning over just not firing couldnt figure it out so when i got home bit pissed off just decided to try nd sell the engine and bought a new one, 1.6 with exhaust system for 60 quid from jackc which im yet to pick up, so continuing on with what iv done..

so engine out - is up for sale for whatever amount only 86000m on it, will come with the old cylinder head aswell.

Tidied up the bay abit, had to leave the box in as was bit of a bugger trying to take it out, plans for later on probably monday will be to take thwe box out and evrything else that i can and prep the bay to be sprayed, probably go for black.

the lip on the boonet that i started working on ruined my favourite jumper by ripping it when i got snagged on the end, so me having a hissy fit went at it with a grinder for revenge kiefers mk2 8v build - Page 2 Icon_twisted took it off completely and left some lovely little chips in the bonnets edge from when i went to far :/ cant really tell from the pic what the damage is tho, i know some of you will be quite happy to see the back of that sacriligous boser lip but unfortunatly for you i havent given up on it im going to get another bonnet later on and do it on that while leaving the red one on the golf for now.

kiefers mk2 8v build - Page 2 DSC00717

all of this took me over an hour and half and had to chip off so decided to quickly take off the black rubber bits on the tailgate where it evend with the gti spoiler

started on the bonnet with the primer to see how it would come out then moved onto the car

kiefers mk2 8v build - Page 2 DSC00741

whole of the car primed

spoiler refibreglassed to tailgate

kiefers mk2 8v build - Page 2 DSC00748

while the fibreglass was drying went over the body looking for imperfections and went at em with the filler, then wet nd dry flatted the whole body with 240 grit, except for where the fller and fibreglass was as was still drying.

you can see just how little working space i have in my unit with the merc at the back taking the majority of the room. and all the crap and engines at the side's, anyone want a transit, 2x sl500 and mk2 golf engines?

kiefers mk2 8v build - Page 2 DSC00750

and finally the lip on the bonnet filled after chopping the boser lip off, and ther top half of it wet nd dry'd. tommorow il focus on all the filler and get them all rubbed down, featherd aand smoothed completely, same with the fibreglass, reprimer most body parts of the car and if i get a chance tidy the bay up more, key it up and primer that aswell.

now one thing that has to be said regarding the spray job is... as much as i wanted to do it, i actually didnt the car was sprayed on friday just gone but my dad seeing as he was bored and i was at college i spose he thought he'd do it to surprise me or summit i dunno lol thanking him very much anyways, but what u cant see in the pics is the amount of bloody runs he's got in the body and on the bonnet and on the bonnet there wasnt a good enough job of wet nd drying and in some other places on the body, that being said il admit that thats probably my fault but if i where to have sprayed it i would of wet nd dryed the entire body again before i did. but anyways back to the the topic of the runs il have to use some 1600 grit on them as it is an extremely fine grit and rub em off completely then polish and buff up, so i shall update then.

to get the golf road worthy now all i need is to either get my 1300 fixed or sold so that i can buy another engine which i do have lined up from some one but im, to skint to buy at mo lol im guna save up for some half decent coilovers instead of using the lowering coils on my standard struts, i would like to get some nice alloys for it preferably ats cups or some other 7j rims but for the mo il keep the standards on it, also need to get a new grill for it as the blue one iv got is terribly ugly and needs to be burnt but is up for sale as i need the money lol also need some rear lights for it and thats alli can actually think of at mo even tho theres probs loads m,ore that i need to do lol

so yeh heres ma sprayed golf theres whats left that i need to do so what does you fine ppls think??? lol
