    My continual problem with mk3 golfs

    So before I got the Nissan I had an issue, a vw issue and it somehow continues... Long story short bought one as I couldn't get a mk2 and fell in love 4 mk3's later and I've only sold one...

    So plan is full rebuild of one and revive my old one as a daily while I fix my discovery 2.

    I'll try post what pics I've got atm but will go into more detail later.

    So so much has changed...

    A quick run down would be I ended up selling my discovery 2 and bought a standard discovery 1, the idea of getting the blue 16v mk3 as pictured above fell through and I tried to sell it which I got offered bugger all for it.

    So new plan is the discovery 1 is the new daily while I take off the parts I want to keep from the blue 16v and get it how I want to sell it if that makes sence, once done so I'll road it run it maybe a show or two while trying to sell it.

    Which will bring me onto the other two mk3s I have sitting. One which is a full rebuild and the other is a father son project, I'll see what photos I can muster up but here's some recent ones I've got of the discovery 1, 2 and mk3 16v.

    So current plans, the 16v mk3 is next on the list once I fix the S13 and get it home, from there I have a small list of jobs for the 16v

    . New windscreen
    . Sort airbag light
    . Sort abs light
    . Patch the small hole in the floor
    . Remove the parts I intend to keep for other projects
    . Paint the scabby bits to the best of my ability
    . Check brakes
    . New handbrake cable

    Biggest thing is wheels I really want to keep my borbet A wheels but u don't know if I'll use them for another project... I do like the idea of a set of ssr wheels on a mk3.

    Hopefully I get the Nissan fixed so I can move onto this. I have owned it for 7 years and I'm missing driving it now

    Update:

    So got the s13 motd and now it sits on the drive way untill I get more time for her.

    The mk3 I got through to my ither shed and it's slowly making progress. So far

    . Wheels where purchased
    . Removed stuff
    . Sanding wings down trying a new thing
    . Got my bonnet a good friend painted on just needs sealed
    . Went over the brakes
    . Took headlights apart to clean and tint the inside hi beam as it's a mk3 thing

    Progress slowed a bit currently as getting a new log burner in the house just now so funds are limited and I've splashed a lot on the landy.

    Enough talking here's the pics you all love.

    My rule is if there are no free spaces on the drive I haven't lost a car that day.

    So 16v is waiting for its new owner to hurry up and pick it up, discovery 1 is now for sale due to buying a defender 110 and general shambles.

    So I'll back track to track forward...

    Mk3 blue colour concept:

    Pulled it through into the main shed and started to remove the plastic trims, bad idea it was, probably the worst mk3 I have ever seen, but since its local with all history from New it will be fixed! Pics as follows!
