Kristian, I'm spotting some improvements in your rebuild technique, but how do you manage all your rear beams looking the same?
Or did you use old unused photos of the first one? :D

Good luck with the project, I'll keep an eye to this. :wacko:

Forgot to mention, 75kw 1.9 was also German market only katalyzed version of 1.9 GTI in Jetronic times, I checked one example overhere recently.
It had 1.6 suspension, drum brakes rear and 14' pepperpot alloys.

How heavy is the stripped shell?
I thinking of buying a Cti to resore but the only place I could roll it on it's side is in the back garden which is over a foot high wall on the drive side down to a 5 foot drop on the garden side.
Do you think me and 3 mates be able to lift it over the wall into the garden so I could turn it on its side to work on it's underside?

Wow those speed line wheels look fantastic, I definatly want that syle on my car now. It looks like your work is going very well. What do you put on the side of the car to stop it dinting the panels when rolled? Is it just some tyres? Great read. Phill

Me and 5 mates lifted a bare GTI shell onto a flatback using three beams of wood under it. I think you would struggle with four people, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone posts to say they've done it.

I helped moving my mates partially stripped shell a few feet to the left.
Three of us at front nearly threw it over expecting it to weigh more than it did.
This project is looking good BTW good work...
Just the kind of insiration I need, I'm off to look at an old F plate CTi on Sunday!

Didn't really get the improvements in my technique? :P Can't understand what you mean if it's not that I'm not sandblasting this time, although that is not an improvement :)

It's not the same beam as on the last car, this time I use proper 2 pac paint on everything!! :)

The shell is not very heavy, I would guess 4 people can move it quite easily, but I would make some supports on it before you start moving it in case you need to drop it in a hurry :)

beware, those 17's look properly large on an otherwise standard 205's, due to their design!

and that comes from someone who thinks there's no such thing as wheels that are too large :rolleyes:.

From speaking with CJ, im sure he said that he used the alloys from a GTI180 206, which I thought were 16" rims! Even still, his car was a fantastic bit of kit!

More than two years since I did any work on this car now.

Reason is that I bought a 405 T16 project in the summer 2009 which I'm still working on.

However yesterday I finally did some minor work. Drilled out the middle front seat brackets, some rust behind them, so I'll chop out some of it and weld in some new metal, then get the brackets sandblasted before I weld them back on agian.

It is slightly wrong to say I did nothing to this project utnil yesterday though.
Earlier this year I did grind down the SL434 wheels and painted them, they turned out stunning I think, and I'm wondering if a red chassi colour would match these wheels perfect :)

What do you think, I have a feeling that red bodycolor will be nice :)
