I purchased this car 12 months ago, the car was probably beyond repair but I was a panel beater for 13 years and I just couldnt let another Mk1 golf gti go to the grave yard. Car hasnt been on the road since 1996, so everything needs doing. the body was really bad, I put in new floor panels, backpanel, front panel, new front wings, new windscreen scuttle, inner rear arches, outer arches, new back axle mounts, outer sills. the inner sills were cut and fresh metal welded in same as other areas that had bad corrosion. Everything was pot shot blated, rust killed using chemicals to protect new metal etc. Then it was filled and primed and painted.
