Just a 1.3 saloon
« on: July 12, 2015, 09:38:22 pm »
Hi every one. I bought this saloon back in winter 2013. One day I just had the erg for something quick and after my first car was a 1.0L coupe I wanted to stay along the same tracks. Now the saloon appeals to me the most out the polos, whereas most people can't look at them...I love them  ;D Anyways the car was a mistake to buy, the guy sold himself to me very well but when I turned up to collect the car it wasn't as I hoped...Still had 2 years worth of moss on it, engine bay was a mess, skinny tires, the list goes on! And since the day I drove the car back home it has never worked properly. So many problems and I've never had the chance to just sit in and enjoy driving it. Its always just been - whats going to break next..So if you find yourself buying a polo from Andover, BE WARE!!!! I've come across 2 more guys that bought from the same guy and their cars were even more worse off!

Anyways I've always wanted to do a build thread and seeing as I'm rebuilding the saloon here goes! The aim for the car is to be a fast road car. That's all im saying for now ;)

Oh and many many questions will be asked  ;D

Started working on the car again, nearly everything is stripped now. Today all the interior went out but does anyone know how to take these darker/black patches out? Theyre glued in somehow but just crumble when i try to pull them off.. :/

They are just bitumastic based sound deadening pads/mats.
Use a hot air gun or even a hair dryer to gently soften the matting a small area at a time and use an old wood chisel to scrape it up.
Clean up any residue with a rag soaked in thinners, white spirit or such like.
