Done abit to the jetta today.

Replaced the radiator so it does'nt leak anymore lol

Gem hoovered and cleaned the interior

and i also fitted some le castellet alloys.

Took her for a spin round the block, bit sluggish and stalled a few time but think thats all down to the fuel in it as the tax on it ran out june 03 lol so i guess she's been stood since then.

Couple a pic's

As most of you have noticed. Decided not to sell the jetta in the end Very Happy .

it was'nt all bad though as i got offered parts while it was advertised so i now have....

replacement drivers side rear door in the same colour
backbox
drivers side taillight(original has tape covering a hole).

now that she's gunna be hanging around for some time, i'll be ordering some coilovers as soon as funds allow and drop her over some refurbed psluts or my other RM's. Not sure yet but either way, she'll look sweet Cool

I've heard from a workmate as to the possible wherebouts of a another jetta like mine/gem's. May go on a search for it lol

all i know is, its bloody mint and owned by another old man lol Wink
seen it not long after moving to doddington.

lance, not sorted door yet. still gotta remove the hinge pins!!

went to replace the backbox and the front pipe fell to bits so that aint on either.

when it aint fooking raining, i'll get the downpipe off so i know which replacement i need.

think the hinge pins are a press fit aint they, so maybe abit of heat around them will free them up abit to be able to knock them out?
