Here's a few shots of a project a buddy did a (good) few years back on a MKI GTi.

It started as an '81 (I think) 1600, but while he was away 'studying' at Napier College
in Edinburgh he came across a BRM 1900cc modified engine from a Scirocco and got it
swapped over.

He ran it as standard for a few years until he could hold back no longer and stripped
it back for a full respray and rebuild.

The result was as shown in the links below, with 16" Fondmetals (he originally wanted 15's) but when the guy in the UK said he had 1 set of 16's lying around he jumped at the chance.

The car also had AVO coilovers to bring it closer to the tarmac and an Ashley exhaust for the spent gases.

Check it out here:

Was that car at the show in Limerick 8 or 9 years ago when it was at
the two mile in?

I remember the black grill spoiler and 888 reg from somewhere.

It may well have been.

We used travel to that show when the golfs took up a corner of the carpark while the Beetles took the rest of the grounds.

John sold it a long time ago to some guy in Ballincollig in Cork and it hasn't been seen since.
