PHOTOS:









This was my first ever car, which I owned. I bought it on 2013 July with damaged front.
Damaged was bonned, both side wings, front bumper and radiator. As price for MK2 and MK2b parts was almost same so I planned to make it MK2B.
So this is how it came to my hands (some parts removed)...


I planed to put sporting/hgt front bumper, but unfortunately were wasn't it in scrap yards in Lithuania.
I repaired my car as I can drive it. Fitted old radiator from punto mk1, used old bonnet and front bumper and buyed cheap side wings.









Few month later fitted punto wheel covers and HGT 15" alloys.



2014 August: Car Finally driving with MK2B front.


2014 December: 111111km



2015 January

Re: djakon999 mk2b black

That's nice!

How did you change the ecu/board computer? All the connectors were compatible?
Did you have to add anything to make the dash temperature display work?

Thank you.
Ecu and board computer connectors are same, but I changed almost wiring loom, only engine wiring loom not changed.
For temperature display you have to add two wires to dashboard. You can only buy thermal resistor to show temperature, no need to buy whole mirror with temperature sensor.

Re: djakon999 mk2b black

I only want the temperature display, so this was plan A.
Now I'll dig myself into CANBus, and planning to "hack" the mk2 dashboard to display temperature.

Re: djakon999 mk2b black

Painted dashboard to black with Motip Sprayplast.
Fitted JTD 257mm vented brakes. It is much better than stock 1.2 8v brakes
Fitted back summer wheels. Wheather is very bad and almost all days now are raining so front brakes painting have to wait.

Re: djakon999 mk2b black

Where is the location of the ecu and board computer?
Is it underneath the front passenger feet and the one on the engine?
I own an Mk2 and have the complete set of front part of Mk2B. Unlucky I threw the side panels away, if not, I might have copied of what you did.
Thank you.

Thank you for your encouraging reply.
You did mentioned too about those two wires. Do you mind to share about the connection and is the thermal resistor needed? If it's a yes, description will help me a lot.
Thank's.

It has to be connected to instrumental panel pins 17 and 18. Resistor is 10k ohms, cost about 1eur.
Steering wheel is genuine mk2b sporting/hgt with radio control.

Re: djakon999 mk2b black

Thanks a lot djakon999.

The steering wheel is a beauty. We don't have it here. Sporting came her as personal import.
