Project – Ground up ^

posted in: Uncategorized | 90

About 6 weeks ago nick contacted me to see if i could take on what couldn’t be finished of his engine conversion on the drive, in the minus temperatures.. Nicks been plugging away having a go with various parts of the mk2 here and there but never in an ideal location (outside, on the drive) and also working around full-time education plus work…. Something had to give…

A date was agreed and i arranged trailor collection of the none running mk2 to be delivered down here for completion. Heres what we faced,

Now being a mk2 nut personally i appreciate the efforts nick had gone to considering the circumstances, but this just wouldn’t do, so we sat down, had cups of tea, and spoke… Then started from scratch.

heres a few shots of the past 5-6 weeks…
