Well see i bought it as a stop gap, wanted to lower my running costs for a while and something to ship my two dogs about safely. 

So wasnt planning on keeping it, but its a pleasure to drive and so cheap I might keep it over winter then give our lass it, On the Mod side I am not planing anything but bit and bobs will get done as i go along, I have ordered the egr blank so got that to do. get the paintwork up to a decent standard as well. Ive sickened myself with cars recently so am taking a break from them supposedly, I gave my space up in the garage I rented sold my project and engine but once recharged you never know, Last year I built a 6n2 vw polo 1.4 8v into the only 1.6 16v GTi powered with a six speed gearbox there is, so not scared to mix things up a bit just taking a break.

 

Its been a glorious day till about 4pm, since then spitting on to rain.

Sweet,
EGR blanking is very worth while,
And speaking of protecting the body; ford mud flaps are great if you haven't already fitted,
I'd love an 89 GTi Golf with a dump valve for weekend driving.

I was going to put a tuned 234bhp 1.8 20vt engine in a 5 door mk1 golf and leave it un-modded outside but clean, a proper sleeper lol (the project I sold),

I will put mudflaps on the focus when i find some

Sounds a bit much to be honest mate
I think Gforce was selling a good second hand set on here
And I've got genuine ford fitting instructions for them if required,
Give him a pm for images maybe save yourself a few quid

Yes the 3/5 door fit the estate too
Flaps from 2005-2011 all the same fit, Kitty there already sold mate was worth a try but 50 is still a bit much for flaps,

The stock and sell Genuine ford parts at genuine prices lol not ford prices

On offer but are still more money, won a new tdci badge so waiting on that, thinking of de-badging the focus or in my case the rarer ocus badge and the LX and drop the new tdci further down towards panel line in rear hatch.
