  1. This week we removed the old bearings from the rear trailing arms. When we powder coated them we let them sit so the surface was protected. They slid out pretty easy by tapping on them with a hammer and big punch. Got new from our local machine shop, cylinder 1,3 and 4 have minimal wear but cylinder 2 has more wear. Turns out it's already bigger than first oversize so we'll need to go the 2nd overside.. Not really something I wanted to hear but oh well.. I also went through some of the old part boxes and sorted everything in a sorting cabinet. And of course got more parts
  2. As I restored an Golf mk1 myself, there definitely are a few different manufacturers (eg Klokkerholm and Van Wezel are the best know brands) that make these rear panels for the mk1. I'm pretty sure you should go for the 3 doors version rather than the 5 doors (more metal to work with). I used Van Wezel repro panels and must say these fit pretty good on the Golf mk1, good quality. I've heard Klokkerholm panels aren't all that great.. Left side: 5810.45 (33€) Right side: 5810.46 (33€) Not sure if this might help you at all, just putting it out there..
  3. Glass bead blasted a lot of hardware and parts of the 02 touring over the weekend. When I blasted a couple of parts I laid everything out on an A3 paper and wrote down which parts, how many, some other notes and finally took a picture of it all. I also got a bow full of all new washers, nuts and bolts a while ago which I'm also taking to the plater to get it yellow plated. All the blasted parts together 2 of the papers I made:

    Some kind of white sand. We didn't blast flat panels. If you go to my restoration thread of my 02 Touring, there are a few pictures from the blasting process.

    Finished up welding the first patch panel of the passenger floor. When I got the car sandblasted there was still some rust hiding between the flange of the passenger floor pan and the inner sill Cut a piece out of the floor, I decided to make a new flange because the floor itself is still good. I then removed the flange, bended a new one and tacked it in place I also made sure that it would still fit I then welded on the little tabs that hold the fuel line in place Old vs new flange Tacked in Ground smooth and covered in zinc primer
  7. School started again after a short week long break. Luckily it was only half a day. When I got home I went to the workshop to start welding in the floor. Tacked into place, ground the little tacks down. Fully welded, ground down and a layer of zinc primer Also sorted most of the 2002 parts that were sitting on the ground onto the shelves. We also installed the height adjustable feet on the workbenches, still need to get some casters for the smaller table.
  8. Got an other small update, couldn't do a lot of work since I was replacing fluids on my E30 325iX Touring Finished the new flange with the small metal tabs that hold the fuel line in place. I did not cut these when redoing the flange because I did not know if it would turn out that great. Cut the little tab with the angle grinder and rounded it of with a file. Welded in place Old vs new
  9. Finally an update! We got in our new workshop on the 1st of February, after much driving back and forth to move most of our stuff it was time to move the 02! Since it isn't far from our home, we were able to just roll the shell over the street. Car is still in surprisingly good condition (surface rust wise) for sitting so long under a cover 02 sitting in its new home Also welded some nice big workbenches and a smaller one which we will add some caster wheels on soon Still need to go through all of the parts and fill up the shelves since all the parts are now just laying on the ground. I also started welding again on the 02, got started with the A post. Filling in some of the hole the previous owner added for dinitrol/tectyl. Probably the smallest patch panel I've ever made And ground smooth, there was also a hole just about the lower hinge When we sandblasted the car I noticed some rust lurking between the flange of the passenger floor and the sill. Decided to cut a the piece out and make a new flange. New flange tack welded on Making sure it still fits Got some more parts in too, New brake discs, drums, waterpump, gasket kit for the engine, bearings etc etc..

  12. Ok, thanks!
  13. I don't want to hijack Rajs thread but I have a spring on my steering coupler, does this also count as a ground? If not, what's the purpose of this spring?
  14. I haven't had the problem anymore
  15. Been slowly ordering parts over the few months that I haven't done anything to the car. Mostly specific BMW parts, like little seals, some screws, bushings.. etc etc Today another package arrived, couldn't believe my eyes at first how big it was! I'll share some pictures later down the road of all the parts I've gotten for the Touring. Still need to order ball joints for steering, strut bearing, bearings, brake parts, engine gasket set
