For those of you that know my mk1 and passat you'll know whats happening haha
So i'll be using my other half's mk2 untill the mk1 is finished.

So here is Harold :p the mk2 1.6 driver.

Gave it a wash and a hoover, bloody good bodywork, one small dent one small scratch and a tiny patch of rust, but best of all, mechanically sound.

To start with we'll be tidying, and going low then we shall see where it goes :)

Looks damn tidy! If you change the wheels I would not mind the outer plastic rim trim please. Just name your price.
Is it coming to the next meet?

Off to a good start with those roof bars... Pretty cool that your gf is into the rat look :) looking super clean now. Love these vdubs… and super jealous that you guys (and girls I suppose lol) can meet up. No one around me who is on the forum anyway. Keep posting pics!

Looks like some coolant hoses are due very soon too, judging from that last pic. It looks really nice, and I now wish I'd got my Ryder back on the road instead of selling it.

Yes :)
Took about 3 hours to get one of the top mounts off the front :/
All the rest did in about an hour all together.
Ended up using a blowtorch after twisting an allen key 3 times :/
