MK2 GT2 parts needed

Post by Scirollocks »

Hi, I've just bought a 1990 GT2 and hoping to find a couple of missing bits for it, if anyone can help with the following? Cash waiting :)

1. Rear view mirror (I've been told finding them is like looking for rocking horse sh*t?!)
2. Green vacuum reservoir tank and if poss the vac lines from it with the t-piece - the car's running the original 2E2 carb and seems to run well without, so I'm not sure how vital it is, however the previous owner removed the vac reservoir and bunged the vac line out of the carb with a screw. If you folks might have a theory what their motive was I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

Thanks
Chris

Hi.

Visit some scrappies and look for period vw mirrors, not quite the same as the scirocco but passable I think. One of my Sciroccos was running with a Corrado mirror.

And if it ain't broke, and all that...

Quick ebay search and I got these options,

You can even get it in green to match your vacuum ball,

Tee pieces are also available

I did away with mine as I have a Weber conversion so the ball was not required.
It may still be in my shed but I'll need to wait til the weather improves to check in my shed.
I may also have an original mirror but I think it was painted in a matt black finish (sprayed) and I don't think the leg has the sticky patch on it.
Once again location is the problem but I think it may be indoors, I'll check.

Roughly where are you located as this helps re posting or collection ???????

On this Mr B I think "rough location" should be a requirement as a new member could be just round the corner from someone who could assist in helping new members or vice versa.

Good idea.

Also, nice to hear from you. I was getting worried!

Aye Brunty, I was in hospital for a few weeks but out now.
I have to go in three days a week for a one hours course of antibiotics through a line in my arm.
I just take it one day at a time, don't really have any other options.
The course should finish Christmas Eve so here's hoping 2016 is a better year.

Thanks for your help folks especially OMR it sounds like difficult times. Sending wishes for a healthy and happy 2016.

I'm a long way from you in Worcestershire but if you could post me as much of the original vac tank "assembly" that you still have - and your grotty old wing mirror (!) - I'm happy to make it worth your while? Let me know what you need when you can and we'll work something out?

If if I've figured out how to use the add image function properly here hopefully follows a photo of the new old lady:

She's standard and hasn't been mucked about with and aside from the above seems complete after a couple of weeks' poking about. Completely smitten.

Good to make your acquaintances all and hope to meet you in '16.

"Rear view mirror" post 1, OR, " old wing mirror" as in your last post ?????????
I may have both but I'd need to know if it is n/s or o/s wing mirror.

Thanks for all the kind wishes. :thumbup:
Hope to have the line in my arm out by Christmas as the IV treatment is for 12 weeks only. :shh:
The procedure is not as bad as it sounds it is the length of time it can take to get it done that is the problem.
On Monday I attended at 13:30 to get bloods taken as this has to be done before the treatment, bloods taken at 15:00.
Then sat for another 1 &1/2 hours before solution was ready which took me up to 16:30.
On drip for 1hour 10 mins which took me to 17:40.
So in total for what should have taken 1 & 1/2 hours roughly,actually took 4 hours and 10 minutes. :o :( & very :(
Rant over for today and feel better already. :D

As Mr B says Looks very tidy and original is best except for the two pipes sticking out the back, I like them.
