Hi folks!


got a VW Golf Mk1 1.8 Gti Karmann Convertible...It is a '98 and is burgundy colour..

You might be able to help me out here....I got a new mohair hood for it ( the three complete sections) from Germany...The frame is ok and I am having a new frame mae for the rear window...but...
I need the cables/wires...thingies...that support the hood...one on each side and one at the rear of the hood...dunno what these are called or where they can be got..

Will be grateful of a lead to find these last few parts to finish the car


Cheers


Claire

Welcome Claire, I was in the Factory that you car was built in when I worked for Cosworth, even got a Karmann workshop coat, amazing place. Everyone there is a craftsman (person), your car will have had a wonderful birth.

@ Riccson, in trouble now, lol

Haven't put it on the road yet but there is such little to be done to it really...it will be hitting the SLigo roads when the weather picks up

Hi Claire,
I'm brand new to this site but I got my hood replaced on my Mk1 recently, the guy that did it put new cables etc in so he might be able to help you...I'll put his no up later if that's ok by the Moderators?
