JMR project cars
« on: September 03, 2014, 12:01:41 am »
I'm often asked about my own projects, my usual answer is "if only I could find the time"!

Well as soon as I can here are a few waiting in the wings...

I've had this laying around a while...couple of years actually. As can be seen it's a very early 8v Mk2 GTi, saved from a friend in the trade who break's them. It runs quite well with a healthy engine, has the original red/orange stripe interior, but a nasty o'l 80's glass sunroof...I guess a roof skin may sort that at some point. It cleans up ok-ish but needs a few scabby bits sorting, could make an ok resto at some point with some period mods...head work, 1900 bottom end etc...time will tell.

Continuing with the white MK2 theme...

This H-plate big bumber will be a daily driver at some point soon hopefully. It came as a non runner...I expect the trailer gave that away!...but a new fuel pump sorted that. Power is via 8v's on std digi injection but has had a 2ltr block fitted with all else standard. The exterior is tidy after a fairly recent re spray, and I've re fitted some of the interior. Engine runs well and should make a good base for some head and cam work experiments, and the lecky windows, P/S & factory sunroof should make for reasonable road transport.

And just in case there isn't enough MK2 action going on...

This came along via a customer who's dad was on the move and needed it shifting....well it would have been rude to say no thanks. It's log booked as a rally car and has a basic roll cage & perspex, a spare set of Leda dampers & springs in need of an overhaul and a blank canvas courtesy of an empty engine bay!...well actually it came with the 8v it used to run with a ported head & GS2 cam but that wont be going back in. Long term it will be home to some 16v development but may have the MK1 hillclimber 8v fitted short term. It's stomping ground may include some hillclimb use but the main plan is to get out to play in selected rounds with my VAG trophy customers...class B at first maybe but ultimately class A...time will tell

Apart from the MK2 frenzy the good o'l MK1 hillclimber is still sat around waiting for it's engine to be re fitted...once I re build it!...and there's a new tow car in the shape of a Passat TDi 130 sport estate in need of a turbo....maybe if I knock back my 5 hours a night sleep to 3 I could get on with the above!  ::)

The white one looks good... shame about the oven door in the roof.
