Project Battleship SS. Bomberaudio

Post  tombombvw on Tue Sep 07, 2010 8:00 am

this is all being copy and pasted form another forum so il split it up into different posts for ease of loading, all from how i bought the car to how it is now, and only spanning the space of a month!

23/07/10

it be a mk3 golf 1.9 tdi! Its in great condition for the price, needs some work to get drivable (needs new gearbox and suspension) but the engine runs great! Pulls like a train and sounds great for its age.

Dont let the look of the car fool you as the final outcome of this car will be soo much different to the pics below...talking of pics, here ya go!

more progress, started smoothing the bootlid, fitted a plate into the numberplate recess, cut out the wiper mount and preped it for blanking, and preped the badge recess with holes for the filler to 'grip' then the first layer of filler over the top of it all





also piced up today a full VR6 big brake conversion and coilovers, will all be restored

picked up my donor car yesterday, which contained a rather fetching set of cloth VR6 seat amongst other things eg the gearbox and stuff i need, was sold as a dead car witch needed trailering, got there, hit it with a hammer and changed the battery and drove it home lol, now driving it around till the project is finished

heres the seats anyway, soo comfy

decided to show the car now as it is looking prety damn damn good now, but to be anoying iv removed all colour out of it and messed around with it a bit so you cant tell the colour Razz

bonnet is now painted and on



as is the bootlid



also, front arches have now been rolled and side repeaters removed!
