The Original Rallye

My brother stumbled across this Rallye when looking for a gearbox for his Mk1 Rally car on EBay.
A quick phone call and a paypal deposit to secure the car at right money and we were on the next
flight into East Midlands airport and drove the car home.

It turns out it is a Rallye SE and is one of 79 official UK imports and all the manuals and
paperwork are in english.It has a full service history and loads of receipts from Awesome
and Dubsport.

The car wouldnt pull the skin off a custard on the trip home and we thought thats what a standard Rallye must
be like so the following week I took the engine out to replace it with a 16v G60 and then noticed a 3" split in the
boost pipe between the charger U bend and intercooler.No wonder it was so bad.

As with most good projects,there it sat in the back of the shed for 18 odd months until July
when it was resurrected.

The pics of the car when I got it are on another lap top that shit itself so I only have engine
out pics.I will be putting the 8v back in again and keeping the 16v for another car.

The RM's did not come on the car.









Wishbones and subframe are in a bad state.



Some bits I got powder coated.







We got a full set of red poly bushes for it,not the best make but for all the use it will get they will be grand.



Engine stripped bare and block painted.


Engine and front suspension back in and running.





I jacked up the rear of the car to fit the braided hoses and lay there looking up at this mess for half
an hour thinking will I or wont I ???



And I did, I dropped the lot out and stripped it down for powder coating.









Found a bit of rust when I took off the rear bumper.

Cut out and cleaned up...



And a new bit welded in...



I had to put a small bit in the arch too..





Stuff back from TPC,I'm delighted with it.









I got a set of silicone boost hoses from G-Werks to replace the split one. The hose I needed was 368 from VW.



Off to the body shop.













Inner Sills fitted..

New replacement sills are no longer available but my friend
supplied me with one brand new panel he had in stock and I got two copies made up for the
car and kept the new panel.





Both fitted and car in primer.







Doors and wings ready too.





Shes Home For Christmas It's as straight as an arrow and the paint is top notch.

It got covered in road spray off the trailer on the way home and I am under strict instructions not to wash
it or touch it until the paint hardens a bit and they do a final polish on it.









You know your painter is fussy when he welds and fills the extra non factory number plate holes in the tailgate





I used this stuff on the inside of the doors and quarter panels, we spray it on bare metal parts of machines
we send to the USA so they wont rust with the salt water in transit. I often worked on stuff that was 10 years
old and the coating is still on it like day one.





I fitted the tailgate, wiper, lights etc and the 3 rear windows.

Cheers, guys, Some more work done today.

Height adjustable Seat belts fitted.



I had a spare interior from a MK3 Colour Concept and thought it would suit the car
down to the ground because it was blue.







































Ok maby not Thats why I got them re trimmed in cow with blue stitching





The company was ment to stitch "Recaro" into the seat's but someone messed up
and it did not happen so I got two Ford Recaro badges instead.



Scary work this





And all fitted, rear seat is Mk3 aswell.









I got these a long long time ago, Leather wheel and brand new VW Motorsport leather knob.





Collected the sunroof today, the painter wanted to polish is before I put the rubbers on and fitted it.
The rest of the car has yet to be done.

Getting very technical there Dave, How about the original 3 door Rallye

Rear bumper fitted, note the extra bolt's through the chassis rail that a mk2 does not have,just like the front.





I wonder why the tailgate lock was stiff.



I fitted two of these Bilstein B8 struts a wile ago but didn't take any pics



Rear Bilstein's were not available for the Rallye so Koni's were the next choice.



This is what I found when I removed the rear struts now I am held up again until after the holidays.



I had these on the shelf from a Mk2 I broke for parts a wile back. They are the good calipers with seals on the pistons.







And all fitted, they are a 288mm disc with Green Stuff pads.
