    Thought i'd start a thread on the car seeing as Ollie and I have started the restoration properly now.

    First thing to do was to get the engine out

    The Blue golf is very rotten unfortunately Sad

    More progress this weekend, started stripping and cleaning the engine.

    Pleased to find out the engine has been fitted with a 998 unleaded head, result!

    Anyway a few pics
