    In hibernation with battery on charge most of the time.
    Removed the window tint as it looked to be fading a bit. Not sure to re-tint or leave as is. If I do I'm thinking illegal 20% and even darker rear?
    Been looking at this since forever with motorsport cables (left one):

    Mounts from underneath so should let me keep the center console, I like the overkill reverse lever

    Damn sexy but geez they are expensive. Wouldn't take much for a local machine shop to replicate if they had one to take measurements off.

    Reverse lever looks like it came off a cheap mountain bike.

    Got your Facebook message. Great buy. Get a list together of everything you need and I'll see what I've got.

    Cheers

    Hey mate at this stage I want to make it comfortable...I have a set of mk2 gti eibach springs and shocks if I canít find a good set up off a cupra Iíll put the fronts on and look for the rear only.

    Most certainly will need a drivers seat as this one is sitting on a brick as something in the height mechanism has failed...still yet to investigate that.

    I fixed the power windows yesterday which wasnít as painful as I imagined

    I dropped in to show Andrew robinson I thought he would like to see it. When we were admiring the engine he popped a vacuum hose back on and the heater seems to be working better now.

    The heat shield or exhaust makes some noise while the car is cold but soon goes quiet thatís another thing to investigate other than these things the car is mint.

    I am tempted to try and fit my bbs rs off my mk1 to have a look but I have feeling the brakes will likely hit they very high offset off jap car.

    So shopping list as it stands

    -Drivers seat (mint) would buy all seats if I have to
    -suspension either whole or just rears

    -mint roof channel seal and clips (assume this one might be harder to find)

    Cheers for reply mate

    Really chuffed with the car I feel itís going to serve me well for some time

    Remember rear suspension is from a 6n polo, so its not the same as the Mk2/3 rear strut.

    Haven't checked here in a while not sure which car you got but I still own this one 😆
    I've sorta gone a different direction with the car since my last posts will update soon 🤭

    Wow I'm quite late on this one
    Okay so this car has sort of evolved into a bit of a camper vehicle.
    There's a kitchen benchtop/drawer, sink with running water from a 20litre water tank, greywater tank that drains electronically, 55litre fridge, dedicated car wifi with roof antenna, 240v AC power outlet, 100watt solar panel, 2 bike racks oh and 4 cup holders! There's also a garden hose because why not.
    I'll give the car a bit of a clean inside and post some pics/vids of the setup.
    Coming soon
