Post last jumbuck standing
Hi all. Greetings from the Shetland Islands. Bought my jumbuck as a cheep work horse, no MOT, list of faults as long as your arm, it did run until I got it to the workshop then it died. One year on and nearly ready for MOT. Engine ECU, immobiliser unit and key receiver changed, fuel tank removed and cleaned and life was restored. Headlight wiring fault repaired, corroded wires under engine bay fuse box. door locks seized while outside workshop, drivers door glass replaced as it was the easiest access at the time.
Many brake components replaced, to many to mention. Faulty radio replaced. chassis welded and undersealed. So just the front fog lights to sort, would appear to have a relay with 3 positive feeds, earth and no switching feed/earth. More hours head scratching required I fear. looking forward to hearing from you all.

Hello and welcome , rare to hear from your area. There is a GTI owner from your neck of the woods. :)

Sounds like you are handy with a spanner as well. :D

Yes I can be a bit handy with the spanners, engineer for the last 34 years.
Just as well to get the old buggy through its MOT.
It passed, not to bad since its last one was in 2011.
