    The end is near....SCOTTeVEST's Baby

    I am about to get my Coupe repainted, not a bare metal restore, etc. It looks great now, but just needs some love. I am getting chrome bumpers installed and thought I would get the whole car painted while I am at it. Here is what I sent to the painter, and his bid is shown here. Thanks for...

    The Raven e9 project

    “Only those who attempt the absurd can achieve the impossible”. -Albert Einstein I thought it would be helpful for me to begin this project with a clear mission statement. I may need to refer back to these goals as time elapses to stay on course. This is going to be a long journey. The...

    My rocker repair/replacement

    My starting point was shiny paint and a seemingly perfect quarter panel. The cosmetic rocker cover was in excellent condition. But....there was a small fiberglass patch in front of the passenger rear wheel. Time to find out whats going on inside that rocker! I took the door off and reinforced-

    2800CSA Restomod in Oz

    Picked up a pretty tatty 1970 e9 here in Sydney, previous owner was Mr Magoo! Bodywork will be challanging, engine choice and suspension even more. So the work begins, wish me luck, oh and I have named the car von Trapp (more like money trap me thinks). The car was stipped and went to the...

    CSL Re-Birth - Sydney

    Have a Polaris City Pack that someone kindly imported to Australia. The problem is that it has spent far too long in the UK - so while it was tidy looking and largely complete - what lurked beneath! When the tiny bubbles got to me, we attacked the sills only to confirm our fears, and so...

    Hi All, just an intro as have just embarked on a build of a group 2 CSL racer using a car that is sort of half way there already. Bought this last month and already planning the works to improve!! Thought I'd share a pic as expect to be tapping into some knowledge here in future if that's ok...

    CSL Restoration

    I have now started the strip out of the CSL and so far, so good. The car has spots of rust but not as bad as others I have done. I have started stripping out the windows and interior trim. The Front window may have been a replacement back in the 70s as its made by Royal Doulton – I always...

    Bringing a '74 back up to her intended glory.

    In the grand tradition of Better Late Than Never, I am retroactively starting this build thread many months after it started. First I feel a debt of gratitude to those who have started and kept up similar threads for their own car. It is both very entertaining and totally inspiring. I want to...

    2800 Restoration Thread

    Thought I would start a new topic as I started to tear into the 2800 today. This is what coolant looks like after 34 years. This is certainly going to be an adventure.

    '73 Sienabraun 3.0CS Restomod

    Hey chaps, been around for a while so thought I'd post up a restoration thread for the old girl. I have a feeling this project is going to take most of my time and steal whatever cash is leftover from the mk1. It's been sitting in the lock up since 1987/8 alongside the mk1 rusting away. It's...

    '71 2800 CS Budget Resto

    Hi Folks, I joined in December 2014 after driving by my neighbors E9 for nearly a year. This car has been parked for roughly 20 years, driven occasionally, and likely spent a good chunk of that time outside. The rain damage is limited to what you would expect from a car that sits, and doesn't...

    '73 Golf Bavaria Build Thread

    I finally had a chance to snap some photos of the progress, I told you guys not very exciting pictures at this time but I am hoping it comes together quicker than I think. I say mini build thread because I am not going to go super crazy on the updates. The hood and trunk are painted, was able to...
