nah the blue and white is the new plates from about mid/late 90's to now.

the new ones look great on daily bomb as its the same blue colour but for my new VP I may go for the old green and white as its a similar green and is correct colour for 1992

the black and white is a must for VWs though. Razz

i havent done much recently. i wanna get the notch finished soon i just need someone to do the body work and sort out what i need for roadworthy then itll be on the road. the fastback has been having some troubles atfirst the exhaust fell off but that all fixed now except some days it wont start or it starts and just randomly stops running at about 45 kmh. also i fitted new points & plugs and checked the timing but it still had a fuckload of over-run sometimes it keeps going for 2 minutes. and the sets of points i put in are completely kangarooted in about a week. i dunno whats goin on with it. ive been contemplating getting a different daily driver. and just sorting out the fastback and selling it to mum to pay for the notch.

1. Running on = either your carb solenoids (the small tin cans with a elect lead on them) are not working or they are not in tight enough. to check turn the ignition on and then plug the elect lead in and out and listen for a click. if they click you need to tighten them in the carb body to stop leaks.

2. points burning can be for a number of reasons.
a. incorrect points gap
b. condensor not working or dogey
c. make sure when you check your points cap that the feeler gauge does not have oil on it.
d. vacuum advance diaphragm has a hole in it and is letting fuel vapor into the distributor

i drive my square every day.... it loves it .
Get it sorted and keeps smiling.

id come give you a hand but i have a big weekend of engine tuning myself, let me know next week if u still have probs, i might be able to help

oh p.s. to check the vacuum advance diaphragm pull the hose from the carb, push the distributor plate in then whilst holding it in put your thumb over the hose, release the plate and note how it returns. Then let go of the hose..... the plate should return some more.... if it doesnt then the diaphragm is broken .... but do it a few times to make sure.
