Gave the cabby a quick wash and ended up doing my daily, the mrs xc90 and then the stepdaughters first car turned up. That had been washed but some idiot used an oily rag so another car washed.  
On the plus side my gear knob turned up today so that cheered me up lol

Fixed a small hole in the boot floor. Only a temporary fix at the moment but for a first attempt I am very happy with the result.
Also I changed the reverse light bulbs, checked the light clusters and clean up the earth in the boot - still no reverse lights though [emoji30]

Hi mate you can search on here..for easy fix.there's a switch on in gearbox under the air box. Check cliprices cable is attached or buy new switch from vw classic or vwheritage.

Reverse lights are fixed!  It was a poor connection on the switch. A quick test and then a clean up and all working fine[emoji16]

Today was the turn of the front lights. No issues to fix but the bulbs were really dull in comparison to newer cars. So I swapped them to a Phillips set and I am really pleased with the results.
I also have it a coat of wax which it didn't really need as the previous owner had done this prior to selling it still…!

New blue mohair hood fitted at Car Hood Warehouse, Chessington. Fab job and they really know the Mk 1. They have never seen a 'Young Line' ! Took him for a spin with the hood up in rush hour traffic through Epsom 😱😱😱 Fan not cutting in, any ideas? Cheers

Checked fluids, put new waistline trim clips on then took it for a good run since it was the first decent dry day for a while up here in Aberdeenshire, ran it to temp, made sure the fan kicked in….then parked it back in the garage. Still to get a good detail but that`ll come when the weather improves.

Fixed my Broken door Check.

From this:


to this.


Yes I could of Welded it, but the point of all my work is how can a Toolically Challanged person fix it.

I started with this.


After a wee bit of sawing/drilling/grinding, and filing.


Primered, and Painted.


A little color, and clear.


Yes I could of torn my interior out, I could of cut the panel, and welded it all back up.

But what about the Average Joe who doesn't have a wire welder, and or Torch Welder.
