Well there is finally room on the drive so I have got my own project yay! Very Happy Lee and Matty picked the Jetta up earlier.

Its a Jetta C 1.3 4 speed
34K genuine miles - an old man owned it until he passed away - has only done 2k since its last MOT
He regularly oiled the underside so it is well solid
The oil is still golden, not black so the car has been well maintained

My plans are to keep it standard other than to lower it and change the wheels. I really like the car but TBH i prefer mk1 golfs so i maybe up for a swap when all the work is done!!

The parts i need are -
n/s headlight
o/s/r door
top fill radiator
So if anyone can help me out then let me know!

Anyway here are the pics Very Happy

That looks ace Gem Smile

I have some nice standard wheels for a Jetta with hubcaps that would come up a treat with a polish Wink and quite possibly a nice running 1.6 engine Wink

I will find a pic of the wheels...and will bring round my old headlamp for you at the weekend when i pic up some wiring and business cards off Lee.

They are the ones which were on mine before..just steelies with a chrome hubcap which covers the steelie.

Oi, you cheeky ghet lol
16v nearly ready to drop in mate Wink

Well pleased with the jetta though Very Happy
Hope to find a door in the same colour as its prob a common colour.
Only things i'll be doing on it are the mechanic's and obviously a buff up!!.

Will be looking for some coilovers or maybe just some springs to slam her a little then i'll look into some wide wheels. Maybe even stick my standard RM's on it for now. we'll see Wink

A rear door would be great if you have one Very Happy what colour is it? That is the main thing that lets the car down at the mo - so getting a good condition door on her would make a massive difference.

Yeah i hope to get a lot done on her this weekend. will be good to have a poke around yours at the next cambs meet! Smile

If the door is solid lance, i'll take it. Just means i'll have to get it painted.

Think vw mike has sorted us with a headlight mate
