That's a hell of a transformation, I'd be interested to see how they hold up after some usage.

Cheers fellas i really appreciate that. I've really had to learn as I've gone along, if you hark back to the beginning of the thread, I was flapping about a rusted bolt in the bulkhead! But its only just getting exciting now, as I've finally got the end on my sights.

Not much to report for the time being, I've been buying parts that I need, bits and bobs really, I need some GENUINE 84-87 gti arches of anyone has a line on some. But in terms of jobs I've not been upto much except open a gigantic can of worms.

Image

You see where this is going.
Image

And after 47,000 years working my way up from 80 to 600 grit then switching to mop attachments on the dremel I've ended up with this.

Image

Image

The third 'runner' is slightly duller than the rest as I tried a different finishing method but I'll go back and sort that and tidy a few other bits and bobs. They need to be thoroughly cleaned inside as undoubtedly aluminium swarf has ended up inside so you obviously don't want any of that getting sucked inside the engine.

Quick update, just been to the body shop to drop some bits off (new sunroof seal, swage line decals etc) . After a lot of painstaking panel work from the guys, every panel is now straight, they wanted to use as little amount of filler as possible, obviously very happy they opted doing it this way as the last bodyshop used excessive amounts of filler to 'straighten' the panels and I just assumed they would be using the same method. They said its going to be in primer this time next week!

And just for interest, I saw this outside, thought someone is going to turn into a rat rod but the owner is doing a full blown restoration on it. Wowsers.

Re: Mk2 monza - something is happening

. OK. I'll start with the throttle body.
I saw a guide on how to rebuild these on clubgti. Looked fiddley but thought I'll give it a go as mine was filthy anyway.

Image

So. After dismantling it I ended up with this.

Image

Can of worms?

But using the guide AND a spare TB as a reference I carried on. Cleaned the parts in my ultrasonic cleaner. Reassembled which got me this.

Image

But now the main event. An hour ago the bodyshop sent me some pictures.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Very very exited needless to say
