in for end result
yes the two guide or mounting pins on the bottom..
how do you you like the r32 bumper? im waiting on my badgeless
Short update, pics later in the week. Its been slow going, I'm busy as all hell with work. Car finally has all the bodywork FINISHED!!! One coat of primer on the shell. All thats left to prep are the fenders, and front/rear bumpers. All my parts are in, all that is left to order are wheels and tires, and whatever small misc stuff that I need to reassemble the car. I have a show that my company is sponsoring on August 18th, and that is now the deadline for me to have this car finished and back together. For those wondering why its taking so long, its the small things I guess. Things like stripping all the factory sound deadener out of the rain tray, putting newer, better product in there, then painting over all that with a sound damping spray (looks like truck bed liner).
For suspension, I decided that ultimo's were the best option in my budget. I would love to do bags in the near future, so I didn't want to spend a small fortune on parts that may only be on the car for a year anyhow. Coils are in, and taken apart. Working on sandblasting the springs today, some really wicked powdercoat is on its way and should be here mid week. Springs will be powdercoated a metallic blue, with a satin clear overtop.
I think this was the color I chose:
For those that didn't see further up in the thread, car will be painted stock R32 blue (LB5R) with the roof, front grille, rear bumper insert, and mirror bottoms painted a black with metallic blue color. The idea is to get as close as I can with the shades of blue so that nothing looks out of place.
For wheels, I decided on the avant garde M310's in machined face/black. I feel bad for dragging this build on so long, I just want to drive the thing already! Also have a line on a complete turbo upgrade from an audi TT (225hp). Still trying to figure out the logistics of all that. Might wait until the winter, so I can pull and build the motor, shave and paint the bay and get that stuff all buttoned up. So much for a quick project.
Pics to follow in a few days
I should also post this quick. This area of the car sucked. I learned SO much while fixing it, I even hand made a shrinking tip for my welder and got very good at using it over the course of this battle. On this side of the car, not counting the roof, I would estimate that I have 25 hours of time. The wheel arch was absolutely the hardest part to get shaped, it was made from ****ty cracked body filler when I got the car. I ground it all out, worked the metal back out, and finished it with much less filler than was on there before. I'll let the pics show the rest.

stop teasing already and du werk looking good
people like you, who are not only able to do this but actually carry this stuff out to completion... are like gods to me. i have no idea how to do any of this, not even removing the parts, let alone rebuilding it back up.
kudos to you for resurrecting a green monster gti with a new life.
