Does Driving your car topless @ 70f and having the wind whip your hair, so that you have that "Blow-Dried-Flip"  after you take your cap off count?


What do Divorces, Great Coffee, and Car Electrics all have in common?

They all start with GOOD Grounds.

Where are my DIY Links?

Hi Chris,
Not really mate, otherwise it would be 24 years long !!
I have made several posts in this forum over the years, perhaps I should gather lots of old and more recent photos and build one !!

I changed both rear springs (one had snapped) with the help of my dad. Also did a oil change. Slowly finally starting to work through a long list of stuff too do  :)

Yes, they are a green tint.
The Ronals are 4x100, they are 7.5" wide with an ET of 39 I think - I have 10mm front and 20mm rear hubcentric spacers.

Not mine, but my sons!!

We picked-up his first MK1 Golf - a GTI originally but now sporting a 16v KR.

It needs a little welding and the engine intake putting in and get running, but a nice little project and should be good once it's sorted.

Many thanks to CabrioAnna and Elv for getting Dan sorted, and for the bacon and sausage baps  :cool:

Now then Son, where are ya???  :lol:
