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
Moe looks stunning mate love it I been quite and watching all the updates lol but wow what a great job u guys have done looks incredible the bumpers look awesome can't wait once u get them on
Moe I am doing great thank you for asking . Sold one of my jettas to a good friend of mine I miss it but I get to see it often at least 😃 can't wait to see your car finished and maybe in person once I come visit my cousins in London
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?
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...
Moe looks great love it.
One thing can you get me a tow hook cover ? I need one bad for my Golf
Let me know
Moe I need one exactly like yours , send me a picture of the older ones for reference so I know, and u will take a look at the surrounds
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...
can you also locate me some rear electric window surrounds...
Put on some sill protection
Also put some protection on the inner part of the door frame to protect from seat belts being thrown at the paint... This might be a bit OTT but after spraying the car i want to keep it protected. plus i think it looks very nice and OEM...
And spent a couple hours clean the car (washed, Aqua waxed, and resin polished )
Hope you like thanks
another update, this time the rear bumper is refurbished and I've taken step by step pictures to do a tutorial...
Things you will need
from left to right plastic primer, paint thinner, and the APP textured bumper paint
180 grit sanding pads and sander
some cheap standard paint thinner to clean you gun and you bumper before spraying, and of-course a paint gun and compressor is needed...
you want to sand it down so its all smooth and even you don't want two different textures on your bumper. after this spray with the 1k primer thin it down with some paint thinner at a ratio of one part thinner to two parts paint... After this is done and dried wet and dry the bumper to smooth off any imperfections...REMEMBER TO CLEAN THE SURFACE WITH A LITTLE BIT OF STANDARD THINNER BEFORE EVERY SPRAY...
at this point give it another goat of the primer at the same ration leave it to dry and then you are ready to coat it in the APP bumper paint
Hope this helps for those of you that messaged me about it... If it doesn't fell free to message or post questions...

Hello fellow dubbers
Sorry for the delay but work has taken over, but there has been progress
Firstly managed to source a new grill as the old one wasn't holding the bottom trim properly and had a few scratches etc. And also sourced a new bottom trim that I had painted.
And my oil breather reservoir made from a bike water bottle
New winter wheels Ronal LS
Paint but still needs more polishing on the lip...
New brake pressure cylinder
vortex stickers on
Few bits that came in the post
hope you guys and girls like
