    Default Another mk2 in the family - Golf content -

    So i sold my daily last week



    and while i'll work further on this



    i bought this old lady on saturday



    Golf2 CL 1,8l from 1885 in LA7V Polarsilver. Really happy with this car. got it for a good price in a pretty good condition.
    This car will be my daily and wintercar as far as i cant drive the bagged mk2.

    -Plans on this one:
    -Lower it with ebays finest coils
    -Replace actual interior with brown interior
    -body-cavity sealing and remove rust to keep the car alive for the next 3-5 winters

    Some pictures i took today


    Messy engine bay...


    trunk seemed to be used a lot. scratches everywhere




    ugliest seats you can get for an mk2 in my opinion. just need to find a brown interior.


    retro first aid kit lol



    my wheels i saved from the polo. will definitely put them on the golf


    Coils are alreay ordered and should come tomorrow with the post man.
    will keep this updated

    Great car and lookking good! Are those 15" and what suspension do you have ? I used to have 15"s in my mk2 and with the jom coilover kit i couldn't get it low enough. I had the helper springs removed and it was laying on the rubber bumbp stops. And well i had more wheel gap than ground clearance D

    Thanks man. Yea those are 15" bbs rz. I installed a ta technix coilover kit (the red one) and cutted half of the bumpstops off. Now the coils are maxed out but i like how it sits and im pretty happy with the height. Could go lower by removing helpers and all bumstops, but i am not interested in fucking up my daily again like the polo haha.

    Hi there! Nothing really happened. I drove the mk2 like it was when i lowered it but had to lower it again 😛 cutted the bumpstops to 1cm and still got 3cm thread left..
    Also bought this to have a little bit of space for lowering


    It came like this





    Had to pull the fenders lols



    Aaand i just found a dude via instagram who are making this sweet decals. I absolutely love them. Giving the car a classy retro look

    Sooooooo a little bit happened ot this bucket


    Some weeks ago i found a nice set of seats and a full brown interior, so swapped the interior to a more classy look




    while changing the carpet i realized a hole in the floor.. forgot to take a lot of pictures.. so heres just a small view on what i did




    had the whole floor of rust, so i removed it all to complete blank metal...


    Nooow i'm selling my actual wheels and looking for something wider like 8 and 9jx15.. Testfitted a set of wheels last week, probably enchanging with a guy with rm's .. :P
    and because i already got some rm's in 9x15 i know how tight this gonna end, so i bought these

    -3° Camberplates.. hope this is gonna fit

    Soooo back at it after a year of neglecting this thread (i'm such a bad build thread blogger haha)
    with some latest pictures of the car and how its been for a year now.

    Just in time when the first snow came i had it all together and took it trough the cold winter of germany



    This car has been my daily now since summer last year and never let me down. Although with its 217k km on the clock this mk2 is pretty much the most reliable car i've ever owned.





    talk about camber



    shots with local car buds






    And thats it for it now. I try to drive this thing as my daily as long as i can, so i won't change that much. Especially because i stumbled into this one




    Always wanted a scirocco since i am a kid and instantly fell in love when i saw the ad.
    This will be my upcoming build, will start a thread when i find time to make a start

    till then
    P
