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.

Lots of parts removed ready for storage.




Lots of parts seized on as well needing heat and freezing to remove.

As normal the handbrake pin was completely seized in but popped out in the end.

Looks to be in better condition than my westy.

Looking forward to seeing how this progresses.

Your threads make the rest of us look bad! Keep up the great work. Also you appear to work at a pace us mere mortals could only dream of...
