  1. That does look a great example. Well done with getting that beauty. What bodykit does it have? I think Corrados should have left the factory with sideskirts. Your car does sit well and look great with the wheels. Although they could be a pain to keep clean! Someone has clearly spent a lot of time and money with that car and interior, so I wish you all the best in enjoying it 👍👍
  2. What coating did you have the slam panel painted with?
  3. Sounds like you may have sorted it. I never changed this in solving my issue, but hopefully this will help someone. 👍
  4. Did you sort this?
  5. Well done in finally sorting it 👍🤞

    VR6 Resto Project

    A project is a project, so well done in saving her and goodluck with the future. It will be a great learning curve with highs and lows. The forum may not be as busy as it was years ago but people still drop in. Advice and helpful knowledge is free. Yes, your car looks on its ar#e but take it on as an area at a time. What you have done so far looks good so keep it up. Spend some money on lots of wire brush attachments for a drill or angle grinder and make it have it..... Bare metal always looks better and you can see what you are up against. Then choose to primer it for protection before the welder gets to it, or if it scrubs up okay, get some bilt hamber on it. GOOD LUCK and dont add up all the receipts you will collect 🤣
  7. I think it is self explanatory when you get to the old one. Like Matt I took mine out and repaired it a few years ago so not the best memory either. It's in an awkward position, but was an easy fix just by soldering the old one. Nice to have new though 👌
  8. Chris, your attention to detail, patience and capability in getting to this standard is fantastic. I am in awe and enjoy seeing this standard of workmanship. Keep it up mate, absolutely fantastic 👍
  9. Just to add to the cam sensor idea, it may be the solution. I had changed my pump and one way valve, yet the car was still SORN so I was only warming it up running in the garage. After this I had an issue with fumes from the back of the engine and the little rectangular box went BOOM. I changed my Cam sensor and the coil pack which got it running fine again. Now on the road it has no issues. So one of those things solved my issue. Good luck with it, you will sort it 👍
  10. It's always nice to get a big Corrado present 🎁
  11. Definitely needs a wash 😂
  12. Getting close, so well done. And change the brakes later, just get it out and enjoy it. It owes you 👌
  13. Absolute engine Porn. Looks amazing 👏
  14. The dash OUT job has to be one of the most rewarding. You can get to sort all sorts of old issues out. Looks great 👍. I think I even silicone lubed my heater cables and sorted the jumping Cog on the heater controls. It's nice to know you won't be having anymore old pieces of sponge flying out of the vents
  15. I have to agree in thinking half a bar in 30 mins is excessive. Jump in and do the one way valve. I did the valve the same time that I changed the pump, so can't be 100% sure which cured my warm start issue. But it's gone. Nice to know the correct fuel pressures you are getting otherwise you are working blind. I found that with the kjetronic on the mk2 golf. What does the Bentley say about the pressures? Or maybe someone has a VW technical sheet squirreled away with this info on.
  16. Be good to see yours out. The MPG, is always off, and the spirited drive home never saw those figures 😁
  17. Took her out for the drive to work as I needed to get the wheel alignment set up properly . I had a steady plod down the motorway and she behaved very well
  18. Pictures sorted, well done. Loving the state of it. I'm disappointed with some powder coating I've had done as rust has come through. I had the front panel redone with a nylon coating that seems better but was twice the cost. Where exactly is the swine bolt, I cant work it out. It will all look great though when done. I have a bushing tool if you need to borrow one , but I think you may be sorted. Here if you need it and I'm happy to post
  19. Gutted. Did you not consider ripping it out. Although only the wiring, some brackets and the evaporator box are useful

    Oil filter cap

    Sorry I can't help with this one. I knew there are 2 different filters for the years. How about replacing the broken part with a 2nd hand unit, but totally understand if you want new. I've never read about people swapping the whole unit it over to a later model, but I suppose the problem will only arise now early parts are obsolete. Anything is achievable 😇 Have you looked on VW classic parts to see if they do the part?
  21. Hows this going Matt? 😊

    wilkos G60

    I get what you mean. Do VDO do a boost gauge. Still great work though 👍
  23. Took her for a re-gas of the aircon today. Slowly chipping away at the little jobs that need doing. And still no strange knocks or bangs whilst driving thankfully.
  24. Came off nights and the 1st decent day in a long time, so gave the interior a clean with a carpet spot cleaner machine. Dirty dirty water so it must have done something good. Dried stain free thankfully. I still need to sort the tracking and the tyre the garage flipped round keeps losing pressure!! As we all know these keep us busy, but it was a nice day and a couple of great C porn pictures topped it off
