    Half F2 rally car half road car - Ibiza 16v

    Thought I'd update you all on how the cars going. Its been stored for a fair while but recently I've given it some love and TLC to get it back to its former glory. I also took it to INTERS2017 at Rockingham which was great to see it out there again - even if it left people bemused! - Sadly...

If you do get this consider buying the heat shield that...

    My trio of Old-School MK2's

    Kings Seat were selling of loads of NOS alloys - I nearly bought the Speedlines as well and also foolishly turned down the offer of multiple sets of NOS SEAT Sport Super T's "How many sets would you like" lol

    My trio of Old-School MK2's

    Wow - they all look fantastic! I see you have SEAT Sport alloys on the silver 16v - what did it have originally? - Diamond cut/polished ronal's? Did you get the SEAT Sport alloys from Kings SEAT IRRC? DC

    DC's 8v mk2 Ibiza GTi Cupra Sport *Back on the road!*

    Recently had to replace a cracked coolant temp sensor housing and replace a leaking rocker cover gasket. Whilst I was at it I took the opportunity to refresh the paint of the rocker cover. Took the old paint off using Nitromors and then gave it several coats of silver VHT caliper paint.

    DC's 8v mk2 Ibiza GTi Cupra Sport *Back on the road!*

    The gear change rod bushes/linkages were starting to come apart causing horrendous gear lever travel so I bought a kit and replaced them all. Its made a lot of difference! Old scrap parts for the tip: Newly rebuilt selector ball unit. I found it impossible to replace the large bush...

    DC's 8v mk2 Ibiza GTi Cupra Sport *Back on the road!*

    After daily use the interior required a bit of TLC so a couple of months ago I took out the seats and cleaned the fabrics and leather and gave the carpets a gentle wet vac. The original gear/handbrake gaiters were showing wear so these were replaced with genuine leather items with matching red...

    Half F2 rally car half road car - Ibiza 16v

    OK - Checked with the DVLA and it is registered on a V plate - Red Ibiza Gti 16v Cupra Sport. Its a case of applying for a V5 to register in my (or the new owners) name as the first owner. No previous owners! Date of first registration: 29 September 1999 Tax due: 01 March 2000 MOT: No details...

    Half F2 rally car half road car - Ibiza 16v

    Very much a runner - I have serviced it and continue to run it up to temp regularly. Idles lovely! It was purchased as parts - I am in the process of checking but I suspect it was never registered.

    Ibiza Mk2 - The Black Beauty

    I know you planning to replace the alloys but my vote would be to keep the originals. Reduce the ride height a little (springs/shocks) and maybe add some spacers to fill the arches - this will ensure tyres are nice and cheep. The mk3 star alloys have been done to death! - more original to keep...

    DC's 8v mk2 Ibiza GTi Cupra Sport *Back on the road!*

    Still going strong as my daily driver! Just passed its MOT yesterday with the only advisories being slight play in the rear wheel bearings - which I failed to re-adjust after replacing. As a second car I have been less precious/obsessed about cleaning and use which whilst to the slight...

    DC's 8v mk2 Ibiza GTi Cupra Sport *Back on the road!*

    Yes I still have both - the yellow one 11 years now!! though both may be sold this year. Really enjoy driving it at the moment so that would be a hard decision - having the TT I need second car I don't care about or feel the need to restore. The mk2 section of this forum now very different...

    Half F2 rally car half road car - Ibiza 16v

    Wow - thought I'd dig this thread up! I still have this and in fact I would like to sell it soon so expect an add to appear in the not to distant future. Plans to morph 2 into 1 have been put on hold and now seem not likely to happen. DC
