Just purchased this.

Going to be my new project.
It's got 101k on the clock and in very ggod shape on the rust front.
There are a few of the standard niggles that need to be ironed out and it needs a coat of paint as the laquer has lifted in a few places.
Here are some more pics as it stands with nothing done to it apart from cleaning the glass, so I could see out.

Quick pick of the sills, need to straighten up and paint the lip on the rears, someone has been at it with a jack.

Will post some more up when I get some time to give it a good clean.

not a bad looking car there mate. sills look quite good really, though i reckon sills on mk1+2's are quite tough. :L

Could of done with the door mirrors off it also.
In fact could of spent hours nicking bits off it. lol.
Mine needs some love, but there is a car under there trying to get out.
That was a very jumpy, cut out, stop using handbrake until it warms up drive home from work.
Cuts out off throttle/ lery low throttle jumping.
Me thinks it needs a MAF.
Stat isn't up to much either, doesn't get warm. Nice cheap easy job though.

Not sure the exhuast would of fitted as mine is a 4x4 :(
Think it will cost me some $ to get one made up, fingers crossed the one on there lasts long enough for me to get the engine sorted.
Want it to make that nice deep burble that well tuned RS turbo's and cossies make. (once it has a turbo on there) thinking well ahead there also.
Nedd to get it driving straight first.

Not so happy days.
Had a nightmare getting home from work.
Started on the ballidled fine, then it started cutting out, ( revcounter dropped too ).
Gave it some beans for a couple of mins as it gets better when warm, loads of poping and farting later - thought something smells warm.
I have not seen that much exhaust glowing before, not even on all my RS turbo's after a good old thrashing.
Going to try a coil pack on it tomorrow.

Think I was a little tired when I typed that last one.
guess it should have been "on the ball and idled fine".
Out with the multimeter and haynes manual tomoz, See if I can get to the bottom of it.
If I can draw a positive from it all, it would be that I have found the front and rear mounts are getting soft and are going to be given some tiger seal in the near future.
That and a may learn a bit about testing an injection / ignition system.

Right updat.
Money spent so far :-£0 :biggrin:
Had a bit of a discussion about with my mate from the garage.
After initialy think coil pack a blocked cat seemed to also fit the problems, that and the coil pack they had up there was the newer type with the smaller ht terminals on.
Here is a pic into the cat.
Posted Image
Also there is a crack on the top of it so it will need to be replaced at some point.
Posted Image
A short time later with some extension bars from my socket set and it's kind of fixed.
As it stands ATM it now revs very well with no holding back, although it still has a bit of a missfire while doing it.
Could well explain why it had a new complete exhaust.
Guess the last owner decided that having to but a cat on was the last straw.
Kids were jumping up and down say "stuff is coming out the exhuast", I said "don't be silly" turns out it was me being silly and lumps of very burnt cat led on the floor.
P.S. before anyone puts up that I left some in thedown pipe - SHUSH!
Going to give it a good service and a damn good clean, white dog hairs all over the place.
One more pic.
Very rot free underside :smoking:

Going to start giving it a clean now.
Although I could do with sorting out the mess left by the last stereo install.
Fairly happy days.
