My daily thrash. A 206 GTi 140, which was about to be lead to a breakers yard, that I took pity upon, and has turned into one of the most fun cars I've ever owned! :)

The paint job is almost complete!! :D

Former car - no longer own this car9 updates 1 follower 2 mods2012-08-15 13:17:43Well, I can certainly say that it's been a while since I've updated this car!
It did just over 12,000 miles in the below colours, and if you look closely, you can see a rust bubble appearing on the driver's sill!
This resulted in this....
Former car - no longer own this car9 updates 1 follower 2 mods2012-02-26 13:37:07With the car now clayed, polished, waxed and sealed, I set about getting it mechanically reliable, so I could use it everyday. Just before it was taken off of the road by the previous owner, the car had an MOT, where it needed front shockers, front discs and pads and two front tyres, sort of saving me a job in the future :)
I fully serviced it, changing all the filters, plugs, oil, coolant, timing belt and tensioner, aux belt and it was ready! :)

Former car - no longer own this car9 updates 1 follower 2 mods2012-02-26 13:29:35The first and most obvious issue for myself, was the state of the standard 16" Nimrod wheels, which were in an extremely sorry state :(
I had the tyres removed, and took them to CAS coatings in Keighley, with full intention of having them done in a hue of Gunmetal Grey....
So as I was choosing which variant of grey, which were all remarkably similar, the guy at CAS decided to show me the "new colours" which they now offered, at no extra cost.
I think you already know which one won :)

This was it the night the decision was made to ressurect the GTi :)
