I drive my car everyday but I'm trying to come up with the parts to do it up.
I want to paint her but I have one problem,
I need a driver door and a passenger side door handle. There's no rust on my car and I wd love to have her for another 25 years but I need a new door and a new.handle. Iv tried and tried with no luck, I'm also interested in.ANYTHING that will fit/work with my car.
She's a two door hatchback, but colours of door wouldn't matter as I want her painted, someone please help me!

Contact forum user Foxtrap. He was looking to chuck a perfect set of MK2 GTI doors and a hatch. Shoot him a PM here on the site.

Welcome to the site. Post some pics and details of your car when you get a chance. 1.8T? Is it a MK4 1.8T swap?

I'm pretty sure i have a door handle kicking around in a bucket somewhere.

Dunno if Hicks has any Mk2 doors left.

Spose it could be a callaway Scott. Greater chance of it being a MK4 1.8T like you said though.
My climate control consists of window cranks.

You can buy door handles new. Just need to switch your lock cylinder. Not hard.

Your golf gas or Diesel?

No luck at C&C? Find that hard to believe. When you call freshwater road Napa you just tell them you want the vogn.org price. If not pm craig chafe here on this site and he will do the leg work for you. You can find him in the thread for the guy looking for a muffler for a mk3 golf. It's just the door handle you need right? Or do you need the part that goes on the side of the door as well for the closure mechanism?

Pretty sure you car is just a 1.8L 2 door Golf. It's not a GT as they were 4 doors and only came out for one year in 1987. I seen this car on Goose bay classifieds and pretty sure it didn't have a turbo in it.

Try putting a post on here asking for what you are looking for exactly. Example: Wanted to buy exterior door handle to fit MK2 VW.

It's possible your golf could be a GTI. Got a pic of the interior. From my memory I think it's a base model 2 door. Cool all the same and if it's rust free you are lucky

Your car looks a lot like this one to me. Golf.

Can't be too many 2 door 89 Golfs with flat black front fenders, borbet wheels and quad headlight grill kicking around Goose. It's a German import for sure with the side fender marker lights.
