I have to be honest, I've not had much chance to do anything with the old rattler.

Little bits have been happening here and there which should hopefully all come together.

I need to change the clutch but when I brought the car home it had a bit of a whine on the gearbox.

The 'box in the old black car was quiet but second gear synchro was becoming tired.

I could have bought a used 'box I suppose, but in the end, I swapped this bit.



At least I know it will (or at least it should) work ok.





If you need any more gearbox parts let me know I have loads of new bits.

Great work by the way, this is a great thread.

As I had car bits cluttering up the conservatory and Mrs Tea wanted me to tidy up 'for Christmas' I thought I might sort out the front shockers.

The top spring seats were very scabby and the top bearings were not very nice, despite having only done 10,000 miles.

The gaiters were split aswell, and what are the bump stops like under there?

So whilst you're in there...

I got a top mount and bearing kit and blasted a pair of top spring seats and had them zinc plated.

Here is a comparison of the old and new.




And a fitted comparison.




Once completed the struts have now been installed...

...in the car boot to be fitted another day.

I took it for a run, I thought it would do it good.

It didn't.

It now has a terrible clattering noise coming from the gearbox.

Not the one I changed the synchro in, I hasten to add as I have yet to fit that.

I don't want to get stuck into it until the weather gets a bit better as it's an outdoor job.

GTI6 ones.

If you laid out the GTI rack and the VTS rack on the floor next to each other, externally they looked exactly the same.

As it isn't May yet and it is still p!ssing down every weekend, the car is still sitting in where I left it.

In order to make sorting it out a little bit nicer when the time comes, I thought it would be a good idea to clean a few bits up.

I have spent hours at the blast cabinet cleaning stuff up, blown up my old faithful compressor, replaced it, then blasted some more.

Because the weather is too dank to paint anything, I had a load of stuff done like this...







The big bits are still going to get painted as I know the zinc stuff doesn't last two minutes on the road, but it should protect it whilst it's in the conservatory.Big grin

Of course I love you.

I was also trying to sort out what they were all for as I sent in nicely bagged up bits from three different cars, they all came back in one bag.Roll eyes

I don't doubt that there will be plenty of left over bits, though I need to fit something first in order to enable me to acquire left overs.Whistle

I'm still just fannying around, really.

The car is still sitting on the drive where I left it.

When I took the subframe off the old one, those bits under the wheel arch that it mounts to were very scabby so I ordered some new ones.

They never arrived.

Well, that is half right.

There is the cup type bit with a threaded insert inside it.

This are what the inserts looked like when I finally got them out of the cups.




The inserts are still available.




There was no alternative but to clean up and re use the cups.

This is the first one blasted compared to as removed.




I had them zinc plated but they look very pitted, not sure if I'm going to paint them aswell.




Zinc plating is alright, but it doesn't last two minutes underneath a car, so I am painting over it on all the suspension bits.

I have started to etch prime stuff.

Top coat is going to be 2k epoxy.






I didn't paint the mounting face on the hubs.




Before I painted the rear arms I pressed in new shafts and new stub axles.




One day I might even start assembling something.Big grin

Cleaned up the front subframe.




I thought I might seam weld it but that turned into an excercise in futility.

There must be some corrosion or something else between the seams as the welds just oxidised so I cleaned them off and didn't bother.

I just slapped on some hydrate 80 to protect it until I get round to painting it.




After all that fannying about I decided to give the car a bit of a rinse off as it was starting to go green.

The subframes were galvanized iirc. When mine was seam welded (at work, after ashblasting) the welder commented on the fact that he kept having it leach out of the seam during welding.

Yep, need to get it hot first to burn some of the crap out, all the zinc, paint, and years of s**te leach out of the seams as you weld 'em.
