    Thread: My Ghetto Mk2 Golf

    1. 05-30-2009 01:02 PM #126
      here it is... fresh new custom bumper

      I used some poliurethane foam to fill the gaps and holes in the bumper

      the foam cut and finished

      drilled thousands of holes (so that the fiberglass that will be put underneath will meet the fiberglass above, resulting in a very strong bumper, and 0 risk of exfoliation)

      first layer (also cleaned the number plate support)

      starting to take shape

      sanded and re-sanded untill i couldn't feel my arms

      the previous bumper had some side gaps with the fenders, this one I wanted it to be perfect.

      back from the painter. also bought a plastic hex shaped grill to fit in the middle.

      still working with ghetto conditions

      the final result

      it came out exactly the way I wanted it

      IMO.....this thing is hideous.

      yes, well the whole car is... so it doesn't really matter

      most everyone on here is so stuck on their own style its pathetic. You got the skills to make anything you want for that car, and for that i commend you! great work keep it unique. Your part of the reason that this VW game is a worldwide affair, and it wouldnt be the same if everyone built the same. keep at it man!

      to be honest, I haven't seen any crazy projects around here since I joined this forum.
      as I said from the start, this will be something that most of vw lovers are not very used to. so feel free to treat it accordingly

      The work you do is amazing. You're right when you say its something that none of us are used to. My only gripes are the exhaust and the tail lights other than that, your work is creative and innovative. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      There are some things i don't like at all, but overall it's not to bad.
      But as an auto body tec, i have to say, the method you used on the bumper is so wrong in many ways.
      there are lots of crazy projects on here btw, bikkjas car for example

      Love it. Talk about using the resources you have!!! How many hours invested in the bumper?

      It looks sort of like an angry Bulldog, I like it.
      I like torque steer.

      Crazy... I love that it's original and all the incredible skill and time that it takes to pull it off, especially where he lives... but yeah, wouldn't have made the same decisions but that's what makes the dub world so interesting, everyone's got their own look. It's better then EVERYONE running around slammed, single rounds, RS's I'm done!
      Great work man... looking forward to today's update!

      he took the path less traveled by, and that makes all the difference

      ok ok, some interesting reactions happened lately. like I said earlier, love it or hate it... or both )
      the front bumper took me about 2 weeks to complete. wasn't easy, but I got it done.
      time for some updates:

      a roadtrip were some good shots were taken

      part II

      meanwhile some recaro mk3 golf seats were added.

      I have a feeling lots of you were expecting this moment... coilovers

      I dropped and almost made it undriveable

      for the roads we have here, this is extremely low.

      just look at the road outside my garage, no concrete no nothing (the good news is the road is beeing done right now as we speak, finally)

      a great shot, I love this one

      the number plate spoils my front bumper, but I have to wear it

      ariving at another tuning show... hardly

      smoked the ugly chromed taillights. they look so much better this way

      again, the mk4 golf besides me (which won a prize in the end)

      the girls are almost as nice as the car )

      somewhere in the back, my bald head can be spotted again )

      a good rain soaked the cars before the second day event. well, at least I got a great pic.

      if the exhaust was shooting through the middle normally (like an R32) I would want to have sexy time with the ass end of this car.

      That front bumper looks really f-ing good. Nice work. Good vision as well.
      I am sorry but the girls look better. Feel free to send them this way if you know them

      now at this stage I LOVE everything external on the car except for the exhaust.
      beautiful work.
      the ICE is not my style at all; I really just love the stock MK2 interior and prefer very stealth ICE.
      rest of car is amazing though!!!
      also more pics of the white car... SEAT? Cupra?

    25. 06-01-2009 03:48 AM #150
      It's certainly different from what I see around my part of the world. Though not my style the work is top notch, though I think the exhaust could be better!
