    Tonedef's Classic Green VR

    After a year in the garage I finally got the VR back on the road last weekend.

    Well, at first it was only going to be a wheel refurb and maybe tidy up a few car park scars on the bumpers. But then I fired up the motor one day and noticed a rattle (I'd not heard it run in maybe 18 months as I'd been out of the country) so decided to do the cam chains and tensioners.

    While the engine was in bits I saw a Passat VR6 climatronic set up for sale on here so I bought it and threw that in, it was a decision made very quickly and turned into quite a major challenge.

    The head gasket didn't seal the first time so I had to pull the head off and get it skimmed, should have had it done the first time really, not to worry!

    Tidied up a couple of other bits while it was on axle stands in the garage and then got it back on the road last weekend. Apart from koni coilovers, goodridge brake lines and the climatronic it's pretty standard, I've owned it for over six years now and can't really bare to part I guess although I have an S3 which is my daily driver, my wife uses the VR.

    Today I ordered a VT front mount as the rad had to be moved back to get the condenser in so the inlet manifold is way too close to the fan. And I'd like a VSR or maybe a Schrick inlet if I come across one some time, no other plans so far.

    I had a break from engineering a few years ago and spent two years building GrpN rally cars for Ralliart, the drive looked really good when I had David Higgins' Evo 8 MR parked on it

    Re: Classic Green VR

    Next job was Schrick, it was a bit of a nightmare as there's not a deal of room under the bonnet any more with all the other stuff I've had to squeeze in there.
