  1. Today
  2. I was getting confused and my roofbox is the Thule Pacific 200 which is 410L https://www.thule.com/en/be/cargo-carrier/car-top-carrier/thule-pacific-m-_-631215 Probably won't be that different to the silver one above. That's got a maximum load of 50KG anyway. The roof box is 13 KG and the wing bars weigh almost nothing. I think I'd be OK with 37 KG in the box.
  3. Dunno TBH. Too busy at the mo. Maybe in about two/three weeks. I don't really like the idea of driving a 6h round day trip to S369QJ, then adding another 4h return journey to it. This may require a bit more planning...!

    Need to swap

    There is no recommended engine... If you can get an engine to fit, then do it I guess there's easy- use an existing Lupo model supplied engine, or difficult- go for something radical like a VR6.

    Need to swap

    Many different Polos are available here, but I need guidance on what type of engine I should go for ....

    Need to swap

    You can't just swap to a different engine type without changing the electronics...
  8. I thought it was 75kg. Ray I do like your cars, the roofbox does it for me.
  9. That’s right, that’s a 2 hour drive for us, I do need to drive to Preston to pick up a towbar which is also 2 hours away from me and 2 hours away from s369qj. When are you planning this journey?

    Need to swap

    What polos are available there? What engines are? What's wrong with yours?
  11. You realise there is a 50kg roof load limit? Which includes bars and box\rack etc. i use a 370l roofbox on VW roofbars.

    Need to swap

    Need to swap for another engine type from mine in the seat AROSA 1.0mpi..... Need help on the engine types I can consider ....thanks
  21. Behind the arch liners? They get full of crap. Frank, was it a cup holder? Can’t remember if there was anything else.
  22. Stalk is easy, hardest part is the airbag. 6n2 polo ones work as well.
  23. I've seen a whole half a floorpan going. Around the bungs and spreading, like a MK2. Probably ingress over the years. Sills though, especially under the wings...
  24. There's a how-to somewhere with some pics I took...
  25. Sills. Please please, not like a mk4... I'll have to pull the bungs out and have a look. Jet wash? Allow to dry / hairdryer then pump full of wax??? Whats the best method? sills under wings....? Wings off I suspect? Jet wash, scrape then coat with wax? Ok, so liners out for front arches (and back arches I guess-mine are already fixed). Easy-ish job. Roof- under strips I'm guessing? I already coat with waxoyl then press the strips back in once hardened- also locks the strips in nice and tight. Floorpan. Now that is scary... where abouts? All these jobs- Something to do over summer... I should start a new thread. Sorry for the hijack. Although it is a "HOLY thread resurrection!"
  26. I have seen that on other forums, I’ll give it a try, thanks man
