So I'm goad to report that my 1980 gli has tun tonight for the first time properly! I bought it with a seized engine a few months back, the work so far has been getting it free'd off & turning over, replacing some fuel lines & flushing tank & refill with premium unleaded; a set of spark plugs, 4 new injectors & a replacement metering head & oil change, only ran breifly to get the juices flowing as it was freezing cold! Never write an old vw off boys and girls! IMG_6753.JPG

Good man and outdoors in mid winter too!

No one will be able to fix todays cars in 30 years like that.

1983 Mars Red 1.8 Golf GTI
1987 Alpine White 1.8 Clipper Cabriolet

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.
