Mk2 G40
« on: February 27, 2011, 10:02:40 pm »
New polo.

This is how it started off



So i got it back to the unit as this was going to be a weekend project. Then started to take it apart...







Picked up a py lump in Feb 09







Engine needs a rebuild most parts have now been sourced.







Been making little progress as i don't get much time to work on the car. Bottom end has been stripped ready to be sent off, the gt/g40 rear axle has been rebuilt, cleaned up and painted a few bits, some of the sealant has been stripped from where the front wings sit due to abit of surface rust.

 
 
 

 

 

 Next on list of things to do get it outside for a good clean and get the engine bay stitched up. :-p

Slowly getting there brake lines have been removed drivers arch has been sprayed, leggs have been sprayed and a cheap 60/80 kit is being fitted for the moment so i can move it around. Still got to spray the other archs once the little bits of rust have been sorted.

Heres how its looking



Found this picture on a french site from bug jam 2008



Would like to see this back on the road by the end of 2010

Finally a little progress I've brought a friends charger off him as he was breaking his G40 due to melted piston.







We came to a price and my help breaking his car I've got some uprated engine mounts which he had made a few years ago, New harder rear beam bushes which was made from the same company that did the engine mounts, Steering damper, New leads, New Plugs, Sensors, Salzmann adjustable top mounts, fuel lines, G60 injectors, 65mm charger pulley, filter etc.

Also on the cards I'm looking to buy his gearbox with a quaife diff setup for track use.

Thanks to 10pin I've now got a 3f inlet manifold which i gave a little going over just need to get up to the unit to finish it off.





Gonna start getting my ass in gear and get the front end cut for the boost pipes, inter cooler and oil cooler.

The car will now be sitting on Gaz coil overs in a few weeks time they all need a good clean first.

Just a quick snap



Also one of the top mounts



Plan is to send the block and head off to Rob Walkers Machine Shop

Thinking of going for a full lighten and balance, honed, block decked.

Back on the floor

Temp wheels to roll on





Hope to get it over the pit soon for a lick of paint.

Taken from my blog on club polo.

Not done much in awhile as Ive been moving house. With the house Ive got a garage which needs abit of work first before i can put the polo in.

Garage updates soon.

Thought they were.

What tvr has he got then? I thought he was after a bmw?

If you pop me your address i will send it before i go away on bank holiday monday.

Is that for the exhaust system? That would be handy actually. Having a slight problem with it blowing. Might be under warranty still.

Nope car is still not back yet. This missus has had me busy doing decorating and putting a new head gasket on the lupo  :(

But i have been sourcing more bits. Most of the bolts/nuts top end (inlet, throttle etc) have been matched up the correct sizes etc so Ive got A4 grade stainless on the way to me.

Ive got my fuel lines and bracket now. Bracket had loads of rust all over it so i gave it to my brother as well as the sump to get blasted and they have both come back looking new. So that will get painted soon. Now the lupo is out the way of the garage now should be able to get the car back soon.

How you doing with your two mate?

Thanks

Daryl
