We all know how you don't like to pay much for things, but hope thats a different GT1752s to the one you just sold on here asking for 'just the £125 you paid for it' ...

yeah I had bought two...I bought a cheap one which was unknown millage etc and sold it, and bought the expensive one...and sold it...but lost money on that one...didnt want that one to be a black spot on my cheap turbo history!

and it was sold on ebay in the end

and who DOES like to pay a lot for things?! Huh

yay!

Bosched and with mot/tax....you can see the worst side...sill, and rear quarter panel needs fixing/painting. and a new drivers door.
Bump strips be painted too so that will sort front bumper...but all good otherwise.
Great shell to strip, prep, derust, underseal and drop the 2.1 in.

Its the new sleeper

okay...some progress made...
sold the turbo, hopefully sold the alloys, sold the pump and injectors...almost broke even now!

this is how its looking...

[Image: 20130314_163110_zpscc635a95.jpg]


found couple issues....one that the n/s wishbone bolts are all lose
...and I have one rear inner arch that need a patch done and the f/o/s chassis leg, right at the front needs patching and welding.

But underside is untouched and no holes...couple places need just some tlc.

but all the liners will be removed, all crap taken away and all undersealed so all in good time...gota welder coming too!

hit another issue....

this...
[Image: 20130314_163948_zpsad19ecbd.jpg]

dont fit....not too big...just doesnt sit anywhere at the front where you can even cut away to fit the pipes....

and the front bumper is mashed inside....


so new wanted list:

GTi ARB
Ph1 front bumper...may aswell have a foggy one
intercooler...as long as its a decent size and fits...I'll have it!

PS REALLY WANT THE ENGINE AND BOX GONE...NOW IN THE WAY...OFFERS!

skip is going tomorrow so out came the smelly old seats....

[Image: 20130325_135719_zps98af057e.jpg]

although I found what I feared...

[Image: 20130325_135625_zpsde186113.jpg]

think that may need sorting.
The o/s is mint...but still has the inner arch liner, the n/s is missing its arch liner...hence the whole!

Can you buy replacement weld in panel for those sections or is it buy sheet metal and bend and shape to fit?!

I had exactly the same problem, was a massive hole as well. Just bent metal to fit, then used 5mm thick steel for the seatbelt bolt bit, broke 4 drill bits trying to drill through it.
