can be found here..

also someone had picked up on its condition when it was up for sale..

well its about time for an update.......

had a weird few months there with not to much happening, mainly having the knee done, and then recovery

also xmas in between, so lazy big fat boy was in town....( thats what the missus calls me )

this update contains boring things like engine service parts, and other un-inportant items so if your easly bored look

away now...... Wink

i have taken the pics with my phone and what a goddame nightmare its been getting them onto photobucket and then here...

21/2 hours....the missus is spitting at me now, :scared: :scared:

anyhoo this is where it all begins for me, ( i will also use these pics as some sort of proof of work incase i need to sell )

first port of call was to dig the auld girl out........ :thumbs:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

then had to move the stored up parts ( might have been oot a action but im like a wee squirrel )

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

after what seemed like hours she was out and ready for some juice... :nahnah:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


then i had to remove the wheels, so i had to have a pic of what it may look like.....

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

back to the auld bus... :thumbs:

previously when i had the carb off i noticed a few hairline cracks in the mount,

but after checking it i decided to leave it on as it didnt look as if it was perished right through...

big mistake really, as there was a flat spot when accelerating...

so a wee present from the vw santa, and it was off with the carb again..

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

having never taken a back seat from a jetta i didnt know what i was letting myself in for...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
