Cherry Red GTI ish!

After a very nice positive response to my car when i posted it on the other thread i thought i'd start a bit of a blog...

I brought the car as i really wanted a rallye but they were all quite alot of money and all the ones at the cheaper end of the market needed body work which i can't do myself but anything mechanical i can sort. So when this gti came up it fitted the bill perfectly i was none sunroof had the side strips removed and the ones in the bumpers coulour coded. But the rear beam was shot as it camber and it was so low the front two shock were also leaking. None of that put me off as it was the right price and i had my old blaze gti for parts as i was going to use what i wanted from that and break the rest.

First Job was to swap all the suspension, brakes and wheels over this included:
Spax adjustable suspension setup
Fully pollybushed joints
Solid rear wishbone pivots
New drop links
New ball joints
Swap the torsion bar over
GTI-6 front brakes
Braided lines
Speedline corse 16"



Last weeknd saw more work on the rallye:

Standard exhast which was blowing and nearly falling off was replace with a Magnex twin oval and a sports cat center pipe:


I also go on with the interior, i fitted the S2 rallye rear seats and door cards, the cobra sidewinders, B&M shortshift,Rallye dash badge and the sparco wheel:






This weekend featured a trip down to Hi-spec
While browsing ebay the other week i spotted a pair of brackets and bells for the Hi-spec 300mm kit. Then a coulpe of days later a brand new brake kit for a golf was listed really cheap buy a guy that was giving up on his kit car project, and they were buy it now too so they were snapped up quick! This then left me needing a pair of hoses and some discs hence the trip down to hi-spec.

Result is i now have a 2 piece 4 pot brake kit with all parts except bells and brakes brand new for a third of what they charge new!

looks awesome that Zeb

Nice to see someone doing something a little different with a red GTi aside the usual gloss black bump strips and slammed through the road

Brownie points for you my man

A productive weekend has been had but without any pics as the camera was playing up
I've got the cammed engine that was in the gold gti into it's new home in this car, i made a few changes while it went in and fitted some c2 cam covers, black diamond clutch, s2 rallye gearbox and a new drivers side driveshaft as the old one was goosed.

Really pleased with the result it's alot more relaxed and nicer to drive than it was with the s1 rallye box.
