      Its hard but if you poke it really hard with your finger nail it will move in... But you can paint over it as it is designed to be painted over. And you don't necessarily need primer either.

      I just took a closer look, and I couldn't help but notice... Is your carpet one piece or two pieces?

      Hello Vortex like to start by saying thanks to everyone and there lovely comments and a big thanks to my brother... Here is an update

      The pipes have all been done in black textured paint we had them sand blasted to allow the paint to attach nicely...




      Also refurbished the bumpers 2 days sanding smooth 2 coats of primer filler and 2 coats of bumper textured paint to give it the OEM look, no as textured as the VHT Enamel but its not meant to be... New indicators and chrome bulbs...






      Thanks guys hope you like

      Sad to hear you've sold one of the jetta's but at least its gone to a friend who will hopefully look after it... Great to hear your coming to the UK the car should hopefully be finished soon as I want to take it to a couple of shows... would be great to have a fellow vortex member there...

      What Primer filler did you use on the bumper? And did you spray on the primer filler in an aerosol or spray gun? I'm assuming you brushed on the bumper paint?

      I sanded down the bumper to smooth / etch the surface so the paint can adhere to the plastic... I used one 1k paint as it comes much thicker therefore allows you to thin it down as you want... In this case I didn't thin it down much to enable it to be primer filler to smooth off the bumper as you don't want two different textured effects on the bumper, just make sure its plastic primer... the primer was just brought from a local supplier... it was all sprayed on with a gun the rattle cans wont spray as thickly and smoothly... and the same for the textured paint don't brush it on and don't use rattle cans you get a much more professional look with a gun... As for the textured paint it reacts and textures as soon as you spray it on... Ive had a few emails and posts about this so I will do a step by step tutorial when spraying the rear bumper just encase this hasn't helped much as its kinda hard to explain...

      I understand somewhat, but the step by step tutorial that you speak of should help clear the air on what exactly you did.

      In any case the bumper looks brand new!!!

      Hello Vortex just another little update showing the car being put back together

      The fronts back together


      New weather proofing


      Also polished up the inside of the doors

      Got a cover for the radiator but it didn't suit the engine so I covered it with some grip tape



      Also refurbish the toe cover and apron grill



      And once again a massive thanks to my big bro the brains behind this build
      and our friend John Tracy for this massive help...

      I don't have a picture of one but I know they are different as I've seen one at the breakers and its mounted differently all depends on the year of your car?

      there is a guy selling new ones on UK ebay but its on bidding how much would you be prepared to pay? it will cost £10 to post to you from me keep that in mind...

      http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GOLF-MK2-F...item3f1a208efa

      can you also locate me some rear electric window surrounds...
