New in Kildare 6 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 1
Hi All.

I will be reunited with my 88 Mk1 next week after being apart for 9 months due to moving over from the UK.

She still has work to be done after I found her rotting in a hedge over two years ago, but her she is after her re-spray 2 weeks ago.

The leather seats need to be recovered as they are badly torn and only have cheap temporary covers over them.

The alloys could also do with an upgrade as they look very shabby with the new paintjob.

In addition, I need to strip down the throttle body and clean it as there is a very small idle bounce. It may just be the return spring which isn't closing the throttle properly as if you push it gently with your finger, the bounce stops until you open up the throttle and release it again. Not sure where I'll get a new spring from.

I'm also toying with the idea of a LPG conversion...
