Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Readers Rides

Readers Rides Post pics, specs and build-up stories of your vehicles - or even your garages here. Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Fuel tank is a little crusty on the bottom, looks like some sort of plug underneath may be rusted solid, I haven't had a play yet, just taken tank out.

Looks like the hole in the freshair box/wiper motor housing has let water in that has sat under the tank and made it a little crusty

Last two bolts, one snapped trying to undo it, the other took hours of smashing before it would come undone
