MK1 Erdbeerkörbchen

ViestiKirjoittaja CristianR » 20.3.2021 23:54

Hi, Im new on the forum and new on the vw world.
last year I buy this Vw MK1 cabrio imported from Italy free rust in really mint condition, and I stripped all and clean and replace some old stuff.
Its been a long process and still going on, I hope that it will be ready for this summer.

I start with the interior, the carpet and new isolation, so I replace for a new one, also the trim from the doors and lots of small plastics things.

I like the look original but still needs a little of pimp so I found those ATS cup wheels and it just look amazing.
maybe needs to lower the suspension a little bit. but lets see when its ready.

oven cleaner Mr mucle
ok, thanks. I must give it a try.
Only thing about these are corrosion feature that I´m worried about but I think it won´t do any harm if it´s not leaved on surface for a long time.

About lakka u used, just some regular for car paint I assume?

Today I was playing with the engine, change timing belt, sparks, painting and water pump, few issues with the pump, I just buy the pump but not the housing (big mistake) was the original, so after 34 years and 85.000 kilometers I cut all the bolts, so now I have to wait until arrives a new one with the housing.
I have some issues with the marks also for the timing belt also, so I make it moving everything independent. I dont understand but the camshaft never was right with the marks....

I have to admit, I'm toyota guy, this is my first VW project, usually I made restorations in Land cruiser.... but its amazing the quality of the German components (in the old time ofcourse) with 34 years old everything was original in this car....

Anyway ... I forgot to mentioned that Im from Chile and I live in Finland for 3 years already, so apologize for not write in suomi.

Your enginebay seems surprisingly clean and fresh, like it´s repainted in some point.
Don´t worry about language, I think that in these days many of enthusiasts that read this forum are frequently reading also foreing forums like vwvortex etc.
Keep on posting, usually it´s like monolog, nobodys giving any comments but they do read.

Today ended the hibernation and gives the first ride after a loooong time. Needs to calibrate the links for the gearbox ( PLEASE If anybody nows how to do it , I need advises), also needs realigment for the steering. The rest was Ok, just need to reinstall the seats and everything from inside.
I put one small detail on the dashboard that, I think, every Vw needs... The Hula girl...

Again... If someone can give me advise of how to adjust the gearing I really appreciate. I change everything but I didnt mark the splined shaft bar (big mistake) I was yesterday and part of today trying, at the end I can put easily 3 4 5 and R but not so easy 1 and 2

Few pictures from today

What I use was the 5th of one 020 9A
