« on: 00:42, Mon 11 July 2011 »
hi everyone im new to the forum here is my 1.4 campus prima lets start the build! :D



next day started strippin her down hoping no rust  :lol:




had a root threw the garage and found my old mim 1900's off my old golf gti lets try them on



stripped the interior nice solid floor thank fxxk


started to rub down

few skims of filler here and there the panel are straight apart from a few dings

next day started lookin around poke round with screwdriver and walla

and how did i not spot this must of been the excitement of owning my first 5

saw sorted all tools car bits saw i can get the new project in garage

1 door off one to go i could see more rot under the front panelsaw thought might aswel take doors off ready for prep

panel off aaaand found ..

THIS  :shock:  only jokin the few pictures ive showed is the only rot i hav found on the whole car which is nothing for one of these

ive decided not going to put gtt bumpers on guna put mk2 golf gti big bumper kit on here a pic i think itll look ace when ther all done

started on welding
