Default my mk1 golf uk build smoothed out white stuff

hi new here, this my my mk1 been doin it for about a year or so, all done after work hours and and some odd weekends(not many)!

came into my ownership looking like this









after a day or so started the body work wanted to get the bay sorted first
alot of stripping cleaning grinding patching welding later






many hours later in primer



a few more and its in fresh paint



to remove brakes from the bay area in fabed this up




as the wiring on old golfs is crap thought id start a fresh and also hide all brake piping







arches werent all that great and wanted to extend them a little to get the new wheels under, so got cutting










spent ages trying to find a small light rear panel at resonable money but nothing came up, so thought id do my own version




while I was at I thought I might aswell add a bit of contraversy in to it!!







inbetween all that I was sorting the engine painting polishing etc







gearbox painted




had aproblem with corrosion on the box and the paint started lifting so had it blasted and just cleared over the finish




lump back in bay



also all chassis components were blasted and either powder coated or chromed, I had to narrow the rear beam by nearly 90mm in total to allow the wheels to get the correct look I was after




lights all wired new bumpers grill all chassis components renewed and p/coated






recent pictures finished at players uk came away with praised mk1 and pvw best of show.

WOW is right, damn impressive mate.. love the swallow. the fact that you made your own takes away every right anybody could ever bitch about demolishing the original bla bla bla.. love everything about it, although the wheels wouldn't have been my choice.

immaculate car.. Really fancy your way of working; just doing your own thing by creating a swallow yourself. The engine really deserves a compliment; very clean/neat engine bay.

Lot's of work on the engine (bay).

Many compliments on such a clean car !!!

I absolute love this car... It was a long time ago that someone built a mk1 that makes my heart go faster...

Swallow part, hate it... sorry... doesn't look like original and in my opinion, while you were at it, you should have done better! no hard feelings...

Wow... what a ride!

thanks for the compliments mate, dont know how you can say you hate it, just because it dont look exactly the same as an original i think it looks pretty funky, i could never get it exactly right from a big light panel.

thanks i did draw up a rough schematic when i did it but if i showed you one you probably wouldnt be any better off as it would only make sense to me as i only did the drawing to work out how mant wires to run and where.



many thanks for rest of your kind words
