I Want it on the road lol idealy a 18t but its a small block so theres pleanty of work envolved!



Aye this was a e28 m535 but scrap prices went up and the owner decided to strip it and despose of it!

I bought it when i was 16 (about five years ago lol) my plans for it are mixed so i struggel to see what to do with it! So far ive found a mk 2 leather and converted it to mk 1, sanded it all down primered it smoothed the swage lines down and boot lid ditched the bumpers remounted the indicators and got a idea for my plate! The origenal owner put a servo and gti brakes on it along with a rainbow cloth gti pair of front seats! he had it for 19 years before i managed to perswade him to part with it! He had 2 and though his other was the better un and didnt have time to fix my one!

My main goal at the moment is to paint it and get a mot! Had to remove the downpipe to weld the egr! all four manifold to downpipe bolts snapped so i have to get a new manifold and get the old one off! Its been a total night mare so far! All 5 visible manifold nuts have rounded and i've only managed to get 4 off so far i think im gonna have to cut the last one off its rusted away from a 13m to like a 9m! its the one under the arrow!


D'oh!




Got some steelies for the mot need a good paint but legal tread and the dont come out passed my arches like my mims!

I've got a mk2 1.8 8v gti engine gearbox, ecu, drive shafts etc but no tank or loom if i got that far i would go down the turbo road :P

decided to take them off and give them a paint up cause they're starting to show they're age!



Im no too impressed with the lowering kit  (springs shockies and uprated strut tops and bump stops) got the kit with gti 30mm springs on it. And decided to purchase a set of 80mm springs from a local shop. now a year later opened the box fitted them to the shockies and put them on the car its deffinetly lower but certinly not 80mm lol maybe 30mm non gti. so would hassard a guess that the gtis would be -20mm yet. bugger. lol feels nice to drive and its solid so moveing on!

Alright guys hows it going? Been a long time so got a fair size update 56K BEWARE LOL.

After a quite a few pit starts (aka bump starts) i caved to political pressure from the wife and bought a newer more ''reliable'' daily runner a clio 172.
Which is going next year damn froggs. lol The plans a mk5 gt tdi as a replacement. But the wife didnt expect me to tear the back garden up and build a drive way to keep the mk1 8) pics to follow just watch this space had a clearout to make room in the shed to get some stuff organsed and done.

Looks bad but theres 8 years of stripped motors and 12+ stuff from the shed. todays progress finished looking like this.




This was the furthest my golf made it layby 100 just down from spean bridge was heading up to pick the wife up fae kingausse. Had a leaky petrol tank so thought might as well use the fuel. It made it and gave me loads of confidence. Decided i was gonna risk it down to edition 38 but on the morning it never made it out the street. lmao typical eh? SOOOO rented a 58 plate polo instead and road tripped it.
A few pics of my 3 fav germans mk1,my brothers jetta gti 16v and my worx sprinter. Due to it lying about my brother robbed the leather out it for his jetta. But i have a set of adjustable buckets lying about to go in instead.







Stumbeled accross thease in a breakers and managed to get them for the princley some of 170 they're image split fronts are 17''-9'' Rears are 18''-13'' wide :D




we'll got alot of stuff up missed alot but will get more up soon :P

Right guys after a fair bit of thought and looking at others conversions i im gonna try a 2.0 16v engine conversion.
If i can get that in and working im gonna move up to a 1.8t funds permitting. I think im going to keep the car track orintated with maybe the odd weekend road /show use.

For the conversion im planning to use,

mk2 golf 16v loom, ecu.
short block 16v engine, starter, alternator, radiator.
1.8 8v box, clutch, fly wheel, driveshafts into standard hubs.
new gti steering rack.
a 4 branch conversion manifold and a 2-1/4 exhaust.

Afterwards im looking at a 16v m/c and servo i have a set of front vauxhall disks an pads and flexis. I would like some mk2 carriers and mk4 calipers etc. not too worried about this as it atm will be a while before the cars used again the main focus will be fitting the engine.

Im gonna have to souce most of these parts but i think i have a 8v engine, box, an driveshafts out the back which im planning on using.
its a 1300 at the moment so im gonna have to move the drivers engine mount, sort out fueling and ignition. I have a mk2 fuel pump but im not sure if i can use it with the carb tank or get hold of a gti tank and pump. Can anyone shed light on that?

The driveways not finished yet but am hopeing to have it finished by next thursday allowing me to get the mk1 in and stripped for the prep work to begin.
