Over the weekend I've been looking through eBay saw some nice motors. 2 of which were xr2's. Anyway it's got me thinking about attempting a restoration project and the car of choice for me will be a mk2 golf. I'm possibly going to see a 3 door 1.6 auto this weekend.

Has anyone tried a restoration themselves on here? I've joined the mk2 golf forum and at nights I will start going through other people's builds and try get an idea of costs and hassle.

It all depends if its worth it, remember that cars are cheap and very disposable these day so not many want cleaned up cars unless they are rare.

This brings me onto my other concern.
The car I'm looking to go see is a golf 1.6 driver so not a sought after model. Now let's say I spend all this money fixing the car up to a decent standard and change the engine. I think it would still be less valuable than a true golf gti
