Picked Up this 90 golf last october. Its a 1990 16v with only 108000 on it and a big service history with it, but it does need a few bits doing!!!!! Only getting round to putting up pics now. Every time I do something with it i seem to find more problems, but hey thats the fun of old cars.

When I opened the garage door this morning the smell of petrol nearly knocked me over, started it up and its leaking from the fuel pump housing. All of the fuel pipes look to be badly rusted aswell. The pipe from the pump to accumalator is rotten through but this is still availible from vw. I cleaned the pipe from the filter to the engine but this also is rotten. The pipe from the accumalator to the filter seems to be in good condition.

There was a lot of rust on the axle so dropped it out to freshen it up.
