i get excited when i see updates to this thread, that trunk is gonna look good!
So with that metal plate, did you drill through the body and use some sort of nut/bolt to secure or did you use something else. I've been trying to figure out how I want to mount everything (not sure how I feel about people who leave it floating in the trunk )
haha, can't wait to get it done! didn't get to work on it today, got home too late..
yeah, nut and bolt pretty much...i'm not sure about securing it down to something floating either..a lot of people do it, specially the vw people...so i know it will work...but i guess i'd just rather not..
i'm hoping to close down the shop in the next hour, head home and try to finish up that trunk and get it primed and ready for paint!
soooo...ecs seems to have the euro headlamps for the mk6, but i talked to them and they told me that they throw a bulb out error...anyone know any way to get around this? no, i haven't tried looking it up yet, but i will...it would save me some work though.
bump for being halfway done with the trunk...i honestly thought i'd be done today...and then i reminded myself of how much a pain bodywork can be...and this isn't even too big of a project...omg.
the worse part is the spring for my garage door broke, and now the door won't go up at all..so i have to work in the garage with no ventilation, and poor lighting, and a whole lot of fumes from the body filler, until they fix it...any ways, plans are to finish the molding tomorrow and have it primed....okay, maybe at least finish the molding..
Update for today: completely slacked off yesterday. woke up 1 in the afternoon, had breakfast. didn't work on my trunk at all..the garage door spring broke, and my garage door won't open at all...and i hate working in that small, enclosed space..specially with all the dust...need to get that fixed asap. so instead, i just watched my brother do his carbon fiber interior trim in his car...kind of got motivated to do mine..
what is every one's opinion on window curtains? just out of curiosity? there are a lot of jdm "vip" cars that i've seen rolling around with curtains, but i haven't seen many vw, if any at all...i think it could work depending on the application...just curious as to what you guys think..
