Might not be enough detail to say for sure but I'm wondering what you think. Obviously there's more rust to take back but it feels fairly solid where the rust in the corners are (Passed the screwdriver jab test) As you can probably guess a lot of it moves if i press down on it where it's bad. I personally think it can be saved it's not that bad...best methods for restoring it? just cut out and weld bits in?! Anyway here are some pictures cheers
Thought I'd show the work I have been helping a friend of a friend with over the past few weeks, I was asked to help as I know how 205's go together, and Anton likes the welding side of things, but hates working on pugs, he's a VW man at heart. Antons current collection is Clyde, 2.0 8 valve high comp cammed Red mk2 Scirocco, which is about the 160 bhp mark. A VW T4 transporter Synchro 2.5 TDI. A Porshe Carrera 4. A Sylva Striker RT kitcar (x2!...) And last week he picked up a Saab 9-3 Hot Aero Estate, 250 bhp variant, for £500, its bloody quick, and very tidy, and only has 100k on the clock. He's built a few vw's, mk3 running gear under a mk2 golf, the ubiquitous 20vT into something or other, resurrected a few bent Sciroccos and M3's. onto the puglet as Anton affectionately calls this 88 Silver 1.9 gti, its a car he has been given TWICE, and sold to friends for £400 both times IIRC the most recent victim is Adam, who asked Anton to get it up to scratch mechanically, and weld up where necessary... end of the first day... we poked holes in it, thought "oh feck" then started at the front and removed the rusty bits after snapping pretty much every stud and bolt there was...
