[Body_Work] 1991 Gti Steel Grey Detailing Progress Thread
Posted 02 July 2016 - 08:28 PM
Looks better in photos than real life, as theres numerous carpark dings over it. Considered having them done but theres too many and it adds a bit of character! Not bad for 185k miles though, still the original engine too!
Bodyshop did a great job. Everything single bit of grot has been sorted from back end to front wings.
Future job in a few years will be inner wings and headlight panels but they are pretty solid at the moment, suprisingly!
It's quite nice now to not worry about using her in the rain 😊👍

MOT and oil change today as wellas a bit of exhaust repositioning as it was a bit low.
Sailed through MOT with a minor advisory for slight corrosion on front inner wing. Just surface speckling sorted by a good wire brushing and treating so ok for now. Joy!
Are you going to Pugfest?

Talking of sorting rust, I've bought another project that's waaay worse than the 205 was...and way worse than I'd hoped, but I'm hoping it'll be awesome when it's finished!

No updates really other than since having the sills and bumper mounts done, I'm pretty much using it in any weathers and throughout winter where I can. Just ticked over 185K miles.
Next couple of little jobs are to change the gearbox oil and handbrake cables, and that's about it other than enjoying it!

Dent to roof line after my ladder accident all repaired by Justin Mr Dent South Wales - great job done.
Pain in the arse having to take the headlining out beforehand but there you go.
Car being used regularly, what is strange is not having to do any work on it!
Hankering for another project to am tempted to foray into MK1 Golf GTI territory to compliment the 205...! Just a pipe dream though as can't really justify it!
