I've always found it a bit of a pain having to open the bonnet to change plugs, check levels, etc. so this car would be a boon for me.

Also like how they've retained the poverty-spec steering wheel.

Drum brakes have made me want to kill other people, when I first learnt about them anyway.Other stuff isnt too complicated, but if you are unsure, take a picture of what it looked like before you decided to take it apart. I dont think that can apply to everything though.

I've nevr so much as put petrol in a car. I don't own any tools. Grew up not knowing my dad so had no DIY experience as a kid (my mum is totally useless at stuff like that) Taking anything apart and 'fixing' it is totally alien to me. i'm sure i'll learn though...

meanwhile, going rapidly on topic, i'd happily buy a spanner set for this little baby

Drum brakes have made me want to kill other people, when I first learnt about them anyway. Other stuff isnt too complicated, but if you are unsure, take a picture of what it looked like before you decided to take it apart. I dont think that can apply to everything though.

Did I tell the story about my one excursion into drumbrakeville? My Polo failed the MoT on one rear brake goosed, there was too much difference between the rear wheel braking tests. So I drove home via the motorfactors, got a full set of shoes, went home and got my spanners out. Four fugging hours later, it's all back together, but the MoT place is long closed. The next morning, still proud, I drove it to the test station and got a retest. Chap comes through with the certificate, and I just can't help myself... "Brilliant, fixed it myself you know". The guy just laughs at me and tells me I've not made the bad brake better, I've made the good one worse. So now they're balanced. So now it's roadworthy. I vowed never to touch the things again. Discs, piece of pee. Drums are evil.

Anything more complicated/fiddly than unbolting, replacing, re-bolting is mind melting to me.

I'm quite likely to be replacing the front and rear brakes on my Passat this weekend, My trouble is lack of confidence at doing the jobs, even with a Haynes manual in front of me i worry that i might fuck it up and end up making things worse.Hence why I've asked my dad to help me. :oops:
