      some pics of body work progress on my '03 jetta wolfy

      engine removed



      testing a engine motor mount, weird looking one too




      removing some of the seam sealant





      me trying to do some body work, after about a week of frustration I gave up and called on someone that know what they are doing
      primered it






      most of the welding and shaving done and primered!



      painted bay, pics a bit crappy due to phone!

      I just fixed the link and added some more. its a slow progress as hes doing this and another mk4 in his free time.

      shaved rubstrip on rear bumper



      another pif of how rear spoiler looks like


      after he did the spoiler I had the bright idea to do the euro tub and instead of spending crazy moneys on real one he had me one made. looks ugly now


      primered trunk, euro tub and lower blend piece on trrunk lid. real metal molded and welded piece, none of that fiberglass crap



      more pics to come in next few days

      I dont think hes on vortex, met him thru a friend. he does regular collision body work but this is something he likes to do on side on vw's. he does some good work and has basicly done everything i wanted him to do...
      im still debating whether to do wider flares or not. hes doing another mk4 4 door golf 1.8t and he has started widening rear qt's, 1.5" wider!
      roof antenna has been shaved, hood notch welded, fender turn signal holes shaved, door moulding holes have been shaved, engine bay has been shaved, trunk done so the only thing that hasnt been touched is rear qt's! simple body kit, emphase side skirts and rear valance, and rieger front 4-motion look valance! nothing flashy but exactly what I liked and wanted!

      gotcha, my frame rails look almost exact. Why did you leave the parts that the bracket goes to from the top of the motor mounts? just curious

      I felt that they offer some sort of strut brace effect so I left them alone. he had them molded in so they are seamless! he got rid of the bracket for my hood strut so I still have to figure out what to do there! looks good so far, are you leaving the top lip or cutting it off

      engine bay or the car? I dunno just didnt feel like doing it any other color. engine is painted and powdercoated all the way thru so i guess that works. blue and titanium metallic is the only other colors I really like tho but I told my body guy to keep the car reflex, didnt felt like changing color.

      alternator and some other bits powdercoated.


      engine is painted metallic blue or sumtin like that, forgot the name of the color. exhaust parts are ceramic coated, and every little tid bit piece I could remove was powdercoated. gonna do something about bolts later tho, prolly some polished bolts on valve covers and around. turbo and manifold got all arp bolts
      timing belt cover in pic was not painted yet

      I couldnt find any color that I liked, I was there for almost an hour looking thru samples. I did start the powdercoating over 2 years ago
