I'm back - 9 years since my last login - with another GTi

Recommended Posts

Glad go to see this forum is still active...

 

It's been a long time - 2013 was the last login.

 

I sold my 2.0 Turbo 1992 GTi in about 2008, but bit the bullet this weekend and brought another 1991 1.6..

 

Look forward to contributing again to the community !

Well i suspect the head gasket failed on the return journey, so its currently on the drive with no compression.

 

So thats my first task, but it wont be for a few months.

 

But i'll whip the engine out and tidy it all up.. Not concourse, but nice. Fortunely i have a lot of parts in storage from a 1991 1.6 i broke in 2007, so i should be able to build a standard and nice car with minimal expense.

 

Then its bodywork - Needs a OS wing and a Phase 2 Black bumper as the one on there is grey and doesnt match the other bumpers.. Guys wife dinked it back in 2001 ( previous owner had since 1996 ) - Its presentable now, but not mint.. Then its a question of the rest of it.. Usual 205 tin foil dinks on the car - so i need to decide if i respray or keep oringinal.

 

You still got the skip ( CTi ? ) - I have mine still, but its not moved in 10 years - thats my next project.

I think it's Henry Yorke that you're thinking of that had the "Skip" - a late green 1.9 Turbo CTi.  He's still got it as far as I'm aware, along with a 1FM now...
