Smile New member and my golf




Hi,

This is my first golf, i've wanted one for ages and this one finally come up for sale by my girlfriends boss. He's kept it in the garage since he got, but i can hardly describe it as mint.

You can't see from these pictures, but there is some pretty extensive rust on 3 of the arches. Never mind, i've wire brushed all the paint off now, and it's covered in fertan rust converter. Once i've got all the rust sorted, i'll get to patching it up and filling it. I don't think it's anything that some fibreglass, a few pots of filler, some sandpaper and a few weeks hard graft won't sort out.

Anyway, just thought i'd introduce myself :biggrin:

Thanks for all the welcomes,
Been to halfords today and spent about £20 on filler and sandpaper (and a bottle of methalated spirit). Got some wheels on the way, They're pretty battered but me and my bro are gonna get them polished right up. I'd like to get the car halfway decent by the summer so i can get to a few shows and be happy. I want to keep the body completely standard, Just remove side strips. Then i'm gonna lower it to the floor - and the wheels are going to be somthing special.
