Photos from Steve Holden's post — Mk1 Polo, Derby Audi 50 Owners

Hi guys, I'm cleaning up the 1272 HH engine that's going to go in my derby when I get it back from the paint shop, when it was in my mk2 it ran great and didn't smoke although when I emptied the cooling system it had this brown sludge in it. And last night when I removed the thermostat housing there was this white stuff, any ideas what it is?? Does it look like the head gaskets gone? The oils fine though.

      WANTED — Mk1 Polo, Derby Audi 50 Owners

      A few small bits needed for the rebuild of my Derby, if anyone can help with either of the below items (which must be in good/intact & usable condition), please PM me many thanks.

      1.) Small clip that secures the top corner of a facelift grille to the wing

      2.) Plastic bracket that guides the clutch cable & mounts to the bulkhead (the clips on the back of mine have broken)

      3.) I could also do with a couple of the rubber buffers that push through the front panel behind the Radiator (Part #11 in the diagram) to stop it rattling around - I ruined the 'pimple' bits trying to reinstall them :-/

        Thought I d try the heat gun trick for restoring my very faded mk1f bumpers... — Mk1 Polo, Derby Audi 50 Owners

        Thought I'd try the heat gun trick for restoring my (very) faded mk1f bumpers ready for when my Derby returns. But I didn't want to melt the 'chrome' insert with the heat gun so thought it would be better if I removed it? I managed to release the two clips at either end & was then able to start pulling it away from the groove in the bumper, however it appears the trim is either glued or just very securely wedged when it gets to the bumper corner. In trying to pull it, I think I snapped the rear part of the 'e' section trim, rather than completely ruin it, I decided to put it all back. The question is, can you buy this trim from anywhere (so it didn't matter if I destroy the old trim) or has anyone had issues heat gunning their bumpers with the trim strip installed?

            compomotive cx 13x7 — Mk1 Polo, Derby Audi 50 Owners

            I was going to split these and make two staggered sets but due to my dehumidifier packing up and a few other things I could do with the cash more. I think they're 7in wide, they could be 7.5, they're wider than my turbos that are 6.5. I'm guessing they're et0, the tyres are 175 50 13's, the two nankangs are pretty good and the dunlops are near the limit. The wheels need refurbing.

              Rust-free 1981 unfinished project.

              Too much work to list so have a look at my old build thread >>> http://z3.invisionfree.com/Mk1_Polo_Club/index.php ?showtopic=1404

              I really want to sell as a job lot but would be willing to part-out if things sell in the right order. First up is the shell – very solid with a few mods here and there. Currently has a Safety Devices 6-point roll cage fitted. Price depends on what you want because it also currently has custom PPS (Polo Performance Services) adjustable front subframe and coilovers. Brand new brakes throughout. Adjustable PJ (Phil Jackson) rear shocks and shorter springs mounted on a refurbed rear axle. Brand new bushes throughout with polyurethane up front. Other goodies include:

              5 x steel wings (3 NOS – New Old Stock)

              2 x fibreglass wings (new)

              1 x genuine VAG NOS steel front panel

              1 x Berg Cup fibreglass front splitter (new)

              Safety Devices 6-point roll cage (new)

              4 x Compomotive Turbo-Mag (ultra rare) 3-piece split rims (Comp say they only made 4 sets of these)

              MK2f Polo 1272cc G40 engine and gearbox –with extended wiring loom and all ancillaries

              1 x set PSD Phase 1 65mm toothed pulleys and brand new belts

              1 x Autoplas NOS rear window louvre with fitting kit

              OMP harnesses (new)

              Corbeau Sprint bucket seats

              Rally Design pedalbox and associated hardware (new)

              Mk1 Golf steering box and servo modified and completely refurbished to fit the Polo

              Spare bumpers, rear lights, dashboard and many many many other parts included and modifications carried out – too much to remember!! Dry stored for the past 2.5 years and prior to that, outside under cover for approx 4 years of my ownership (not that you can tell as it’s completely rust-free. Currently buried in my garage, filled with spares so recent pics are hard to come by. Really don’t want to sell but just can’t see me getting to work on it for years and years (kids) and could do with freeing up some cash.

                WANTED - Mk1 Polo Tinware & Rear Window Trim — Mk1 Polo, Derby Audi 50 Owners

                I'm looking for the following engine bay tinware items - the items need to be solid/usable, but i'll be stripping & repainting (powdercoat) them, so cosmetic appearance not an issue.

                - Cambelt cover (both inner & outer parts)

                - Lower belt cover (sits under the engine over the alternator belt)

                - Rad Fan Shroud

                I'm also looking for a set (or pieces) of the plastic chrome trim & rubbers for the rear side windows... condition is not important so long as its all relatively intact... I need it so I can play about with ideas on how to make my own new inserts in s/steel.

                .....Edited to add; Also would like a roll-bar (preferably the version that clears a 5-speed box) - again to be refurbed/re-painted.

                        My mate is selling his 1990 Mk2 Polo Breadvan; very solid n 98% rust free; it needed the usual battery tray welding, which i did for him; i also fitted the 1300 MH - was a 1L originally but that was a bit gummed up n generally gutless so i convinced him to fit the 1300 (ex mk2 golf) - just needs brakes goin over, n a rear box, from what i can see...

                                  Okay guys pretty soon I'm going to make a decision on selling up , prioritys have changed and this won't be used over the summer due to having a bike now , it's 80% finished depending on what the new buyer plans to do to it , it needs the seats doing and bumpers chroming , the heaters don't work and it has 2 oil leaks which hopefully will get sorted , I've spent around 6k restoring this and buying parts although I don't have all receipts for parts /panels etc , it has a big folder including the original receipt from new , it's got a 1.3 5 speed fitted which was in when the car was brought back in 2013 , all photos of the re build are on my instagram marcyd_1 , it needs attention to the paint also as the 'painter ' obviously diddnt have a clue what prep meant , I want to know a value to ask as they don't come up often enough to put a figure on and in its current condition ? Thanks

                                          Got some chrome trim that I picked up when I bought my project, not a complete set, possibly from a derby as some of the pieces are longer than any section on my polo. Not sure wether or not to hold on to get a full set, likelihood is ill be waiting a long time. Anybody know any info about them by looking? Also , Interested in offers PM me please.
