  • my rallye project

    decided to ditch my old project thread as it was more of a 'breaking a 106 gti by pictures' thread

    so to summarise... i bought a crashed gti donor, broke it for parts and scrapped the shell





    i also bought an s2 rallye which wasn't looking great but it was still a good solid base and the only 'mods' were minor bolt ons...





    anyway, that was ages ago... beginning of march 2007

    today the rallye is almost fully stripped:







    messed this one up

      a full respray would be nice, don't know yet.

      waiting on a safety devices cage, could be up to 8 weeks but then got to weld the plating in hopefully around christmas time. need to learn to weld first!

          there's plenty to do in the meantime!! remove all the tar stuff from the floor etc and remove all the plastic bungs from everywhere. probably give it a general clean from where it was under the tree outside my grandads for 3 months!

              it's pretty soul destroying taking it apart every day as there's no real 'progress' but you've just got to focus on the end result!

                    how do you know its at my girlfriends parents house

                    but nah they dont mind in the slightest, they offered me to do it there - i didn't ask. they're letting me use their garage too to store everything in for the time being which is nice of them

                      minor update... havent done anything for a few weekends for various reasons

                      i took all the glass out a little while ago and had the windscreen and rear screen taken out on saturday - the car got soaked in the weather

                      so today i dried out the car inside and out and made a temporary cover from some plastic sheet while im waiting for a proper cover that i ordered on ebay to arrive. heres a pic



                      decided on a respray now, had a good quote from a local firm

                          Haha........ wiked mate.

                          And ive got to be honest, i dont think it would be possible to get a quote cheaper than that, f*ck me. Cant grumble at that fair play.
