After many years on/off searching, I've finally got my hands on a 205 gti!
It's an 88 model S1. 290K on the clock. I've only taken it for a 5 minute drive. It goes okay but I don't expect much life left in the motor. The plan is to get this back into decent shape, put it on club reg, then sort out the motor.. either rebuild or mi16 conversion.
The interior was moldy like nothing I've seen before and the carpet was soaked. Last weekend I stripped + steam cleaned everything and it came out like new.
I've purchased replacement underlay but am yet to put everything back together as it's still leaking water into both passenger + drivers footwells. I can't pinpoint the area but looks to be coming in from under the front plastic grill between the windscreen and bonnet. Due to this, it's created some surface rust. Has anyone had similar leaks with their 205?
I'm not the most mechanically gifted and I know this will give me many headaches, but I'm up for the challenge. I apologize in advance for any of the dumb questions I may ask from time to time
