VW Charger Kit Car
 
This is my little brothers car.... he was 13 (17 in 2 week) and bought from a mate of my dads....... wants a resto but aint too bad tbh..... theres a little bit of welding wanted on floorpan and a bit of fibreglass work to do...

this is a resto thread so i will be updatin quite regularly once we have been workin on it...

first thing we did was free up its brakes and tow it home.....
we then stripped all of the shite from the inside.... loads of carpet... sponge... fabrics.... a shitty old telly.... allsorts..... lol
then we gave it a wash so i can take some pics to play about with in photoshop to come up with ideas.....
didnt do too much to it cos it was 8pm and all the mosquitos were out :mad:

it was last on the road in 1986
