Having bought an old 70, which needs quite a lot of love, I thought i would share some of it in here.
I haven't got very much time, and definitely not a lot of money, but I try to make the best out of it
As an electrician I'm not quite a mechanic, but fortunately my best mate is, and myself, no projekt is to big, failure is better, than not having tried!
The base car
Started up with project rust, by cutting out a long piece of my roof rail.
Seems to be a common weakness for the 70's, seems like the sealing going bad, around the joint.
Looks much better already
Prepared for welding
My best mate, with his huge Golf Mk1 GTI projekt
Having cut out a piece of my spare car, I finally was able to weld it in
And then my camera went out of battery
So the pictures of welding, and filling is missing...
But here comes the result, painted black for now, because the plan is to paint the entire car later on.
Also i got my 33*10,5 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2's fitted, without gas I've never got them fitted
Actually, they are not any more noisy than my old A/T's
I'm very impressed by their mud capabilities, and mud is just increddible fun
Next projekt, will be a 2" bodylift, I hope to get it done next week.
I'll keep you updated
