Readers RidesPost 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.

Since having bug a month have removed all surface rust and treated. Replaced wing, welded plate over inner arches. Replacing bumper hangers and arches complete over winter. Replaced lower repair heater panels and welded new seat frames. Found some nice heated audi TT heated interior so removed old tired original and replaced and sound deadened interior. Removed all excess wiring back to original. Removed fuel tank and cleaned then replaced fuel lines plus breathers as they were installed wrong added new fuel filter. Good job I removed tank as steering coupler shot. Replaced rear inner seals as they were shot with oil all over shoes so changed them too. Gave engine a quick tune up and ready for summer. Still need to replace rear donuts and raise rear plus replace front spindles from lowered to stock also replace torsion arm seals but will have to wait. Heres a few pics. Next on list to look out for over winter is find 1600 engine and fit. (air filter is temporary ) hopefully going bugjam so can find few bits needed in auto jumble.......
