My baby is currently comatose & I’m looking to resurrect her. Her name is Daisy & she’s an April 1991 Oak Green Golf mk2 1.8l 16v GTI 5 dr. She’s been SORN for the past 2 years and has been open to the elements for the duration.
I want to get her back on the road so I can do her up & have a really nice classic car to go to meets in etc. so I’m looking for advice on how to go about it? Does this club have garage facilities & services for members use, or perhaps storage facilities to rent? If not, can anyone recommend an affordable mechanic that’s also an enthusiast?
Should I have her serviced first or should I just send her straight for an MOT?
The engine hasn’t been turned over in all the time she’s sat there. I was thinking of buying a new battery & just trying to start her up but I’m worried that it may damage her in some way if the oil is filthy. I really have no knowledge so any advice would be much appreciated.
I was also thinking of coming to the monthly meet at Hillend but was wondering how I know who you all are? Do you have a room or a table or something?
