Mk2 Golf Gti 16v the keeper !

Well after missing my old mk2 gti 16v for so long i have been wanting another for a while now and since the Ford Kuga has sold recently i thought i would start looking.

My previous mk2 was pretty mint and i used it as a daily but this time this is purely a long term project to keep for a very long time, i'm not planning on making this one a concourse show car or anything but to tidy it up and make it as tidy as possible

So the car.....

1990 H reg 158k 4 previous owners

Royal Blue 5 door 16v

Folder of history and stamped service book up until December 2007 when it was taken off the road.

I bought it from a guy in Preston yesterday and he transported it back to Sheffield for me as part of the deal.

It is spares or repairs obviously as its been off the road since 2007 and doesnt run as it stands but has in the last 18 months until a problem came up with the fuel pump and has not been touched since.

The long term plan is to tidy the car up and refurb everything as i go.

Anyway for now here's afew pics from collecting it yesterday, i will update more when i get it out of the garage next time to have a good look round it.

Yes! I will be following this one. Paint work doesn't look too bad. Wheels arent the best tho, haha.

I have a red one in my garage, its a 5 door too, took it off the road in 2008 as it needs a new clutch, due to leaking crank seal. Moved house twice and still not managed to get it back on the road. Life has just been getting in the way.

I've got a garage full of random parts too, electric windows, polished inlet manifold etc, etc.

Good luck

Not had the golf back out of the garage yet but just thought i would put a battery on it to what lights up and works ect, there is no fuel filter on the car but thought i'll turn the ignition on and see if the pump primes and squirts any petrol out which it did so thats a start at least i know the pump works.

Electrics wise everything worked except the front windscreen wipers, drivers side indicators front side and back, and the rear electric windows ( i didnt even know any mk2 golf's could have rear elctric windows ?)
