  1. Ill pm you what I paid and see what you think, I think it wasnt too bad... My friend has had drove it around 90 miles and said it's great, feels tight, pulls well, bit of a sticky throttle but nothing untoward He's checked it over and there doesn't seem to be any rot, certainly previous Mots don't suggest that either! I did think about leathers until I seen the price of them, I've got bucket seats I still in my MK2 that would fit, but I'd be more inclined to get something that reclines and keep use of the back seats.... At least for now... But there is serious want just to drop my turbo set up in and keep the 2.9 and box sitting for if I ever want to put it back Ahh you think? My other corrado project has I think an Octavia sunroof in which all works, so I could swap them if needed
  2. It did the same to me when I got the photo, but my friend has assured me it's only surface rust, so my plan is to get it rubbed back and treated as soon as I am home!
  3. And that's it up to date so far as i'm still away at work... I don’t think it’s ever going to be a mint example worth mega money, but the fact I got it at what I think was a fair price, I’d be tempted to maybe have a little fun with it (including putting my turbo engine into it) do some changed but keep the original bits so that I can change them back if / when prices do rocket ..... But i'm open to advice/opinions
  4. Well, a couple of friends picked the car up for me while I’m away, done around 90 miles and said it’s driving great... Few things needing sorted, front splitter missing, lower dash missing and a couple bits of trims, needs a good clean, traveller exhaust that is kind of screwed together, small scab on drivers door, it’s had a respray, no orange peel but needs flattened back as it’s a bit dull, had a windscreen replacement after the respray and can see the edge of the paint, drivers side door handles aren’t working, and the locks have a different key (common issue on corrado apparently due to weak handles and people just changing out full handles with locks) - meant to be an easy fix by retumbling the locks Good points.... as I say, drivers great, has had 3 new callipers and carriers at some point, had new brake pipes at some point, rear spoiler works (friend didn’t want to test the sunroof, said I can be responsible for that haha!) And then they sent me a load more photos....

  5. Please bare with me, as i've copied this from the other forum i am on. The thread was only started a couple of days ago on there, so it's all recent :) As some of you know, I’ve currently got a mk2 golf project that required extensive welding which hasn’t went anywhere fast, I bought a clean corrado g60 shell to put the bits into due to the condition it was in, I’ve not done much with it, bought a battery tray and was planning to start getting the shell prepped for paint, and welding in the battery tray (only rust on the shell) So today, I took a look at a localish classic car auction catalogue online while I was on morning break at work, and noticed they had a corrado vr6, there was only one photo, but it looked ok, was only on 120k, seemed to be decent MOT history with the current one running till may and only 4 owners. The photo on the catalogue... [ATTACH=CONFIG]96356[/ATTACH] So I messaged a friend to bid on it for me, as we were testing deluge systems today, so I was going to struggle to get away, I gave him my max price (slightly more than I should have perhaps?) And came up for tea break to find I had won it, so I’ve got another 10 days until I am home again, I’m a bit anxious on if it will turn out to be a good buy, as I had told myself I wasn’t going to do any blind buys again, and try stay sensible... but here we are in this situation... time will tell I guess I’ve managed to get a few more photos since the auction finished, the interior is a bit tired, and there is a bit of tidying up to do under the bay, if that’s the only issues I’ll be pretty happy at that... The question is if it turns out good, do I do the sensible thing and get rid of the mk2 and the corrado shell I have and concentrate on this.... I’ll see...

    Sorry for the lack of response, I ended up doing a lot of extra shifts at work, so had a quiet few months, still not touched the corrado shell, but i've bought a new toy, that i'll start a thread on today :) Thanks for the welcome everyone :D

    Still can't upload photos with the uploader, but can share them this way... So here it is en route from collecting it And once back to the house, it's still sitting on the trailer until I'm home again, it needs a respray but rust wise, all it has is a hole in the battery tray, and some on the front wing, but another wing was included. There is nothing at all that I can see in the rear arches,strut towers, scuttle etc. Seems a great base to swap my engine set up over to..

    Hey guys Just signed up, I just bought, what seems to be an extremely clean g60 shell, which I’m planning to put my vr6 turbo engine into from my mk2 golf after finding a bit more rust on the golf than I expected! The mk2 I plan to shelf until I get round to sorting the rust on it, but I’ve always liked the idea of a rado, and when this came up local, and for what I think was a good price, I couldn’t turn it down... Tried to attach a couple of photos, but the upload function doesn't seem to be working for me :( I'll try get some up asap
