    This is a thread about the rebuild of my 1989 90 200tdi which I started in the summer but have only thought about a rebuild thread. I will be posting pictures of the work I have already done up until this point and then I will continue to update as I progress.

    Pictures to follow once I work out how to upload

    19/08/2017- Now realising photobucket have deleted all links to the pictures, I am having to go through and update them all one by one. This could take some time but will do as and when I have time.

    Unfortunately, the welding isn't mine. Wish it was. I just haven't got a good enough welder for those sorts of jobs. Had a mobile welder come and do it
