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.

Soooooooooo....been a long time and I have been trying to achieve the impossible it seems, I just couldn't get the body to pull back into the right shape after years of rot and creep I have to say its too fooked to pull square again. I have tried jigs, block and tackle, lorry straps but whats apparent is that I have to make the heartbreaking decision to give up on this. I don't have the time, funds or a clue on where to go. Please no comments on have you tried this that or the other. it aint happening and sometimes you just need to realise something is past saving.

So I am going to break it, and will stick the ads in the usual spaces, every part of the car is up for sale, along with all the repair panels and well, everything! PM me if you need anything
