      Another update

      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...




      bumper before
      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
      FINISHED PRODUCT








      Hope this helps for those of you that messaged me about it... If it doesn't fell free to message or post questions...

      Immaculate!

      What and how exactly is that radiator cover attached? What did you use to roll those pipes?

      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.
      Old


      New



      And my oil breather reservoir made from a bike water bottle

      New winter wheels Ronal LS
      Stripped

      Primer

      Paint but still needs more polishing on the lip...







      New brake pressure cylinder

      vortex stickers on

      Interior



      Few bits that came in the post


      hope you guys and girls like

      Few minutes on German ebay came up with these three gems, the aim is to make the vehicle as retro and classic looking as possible the standard rear light will be going back on the orange side indicators will also be going back on and a retro OEM stereo as-well-as a nice retro steering... the other aim is to put the car back on some 14" deep dish wheels as we really miss the steffans we sold...

      NOS Turbo diesel emblems x2 not sure if they will be going on the car but they are ubber rare and super cool to let them pass so we got them both...

      And a fisher cassette tape holder...



      Hope you guys like...

      This is my absolute favourite mk2 jetta!!! The love and effort that has been put into this machine is phenomenal!!

      Good work mate!! Keep it up!

      Are you on the mk2 golf owners club? If not I recommend that you get on it as they are very kind and helpful members!
      Plus I know that this will get so much love, respect and appreciation on there!

      Keep it up buddy!
