I decided to strip down this little car and start the long re-building procedure. Maybe some of you interested.
It was born in Pamplona, Spain in 1975, same year as me. I bought it a year ago and drove some little trips on summer. But now I decided to restore it as original as possible. No fancy wheel arches, no tuned engine, no wide suspension etc. I just want a clean MK III.
Now the engine and gearbox is removed and dismantled for investigation. Unfortunately I found many faulty parts which has to be changed. But it's nice to win from here :)
