Project MK3

Postby nezzi21 » 04 Sep 2015 16:42

Thought i would put up a build thread of my 96 MK3 Golf GTI, Bought the car nearly 2 years ago and left it sitting for a year while i sorted other stuff out. Then decided i needed to make a start or it would just rot away. So here it was when i got it:

Then decided to take the arch trims off to see what we had underneath:

Car was then sent to the bodyshop:

And some more from the bodyshop:

Sadly the work carried out was properly substandard, so this will be rectified over the winter by another bodyshop as i cant deal with the muppets that done it originally! I will update shortly with where i am at with wheels and where the project is up to now.

So to continue the progress i will show the wheels i have bought for this:

Firstly i got some Seat Cupra wheels, these didnt last long:

Image

Then got some Alfa Supersports, again these were sold on pretty quickly:

Image

Then i bought the current wheels, where in need of a refurb as well:

Image

So had them sent away and had the barrels coated and lips diamond cut:

Image

Image

Faces were painted and new bolts used to rebuild:

Image

Image


Image


Image

I then bought a set of wheels i had wanted to put on my last mk3, they were cheap so took a punt:

Image

And finally i bought another set of wheels which i just couldnt turn down at the price i paid for them:

Image

These are being stripped down now and will be hopefully be refurbed pretty quickly. They are 17x8 & 17x9.

And to bring the thread up to speed on where the car is now:

Just back from the paintshop:

Image


Still in need of ride height being set properly:

Image

Image

That is where the car is up to now. Hopefully move it on again when i move on a couple of sets of wheels. Most likely the Jag wheels and the RC041/042's.
