    Thread: My spray painted R.

      Yup, of course, four layers of clear coat plus intermediate sanding to do it right. Otherwise it'd look like a graffiti on a wall.

      In other news: gonna submit some new pics next week.

      Like already said, not my cup of tea (and I do like tea), but I can appreciate and respect the work that went into it. So kudos!

      Wow, nicely done.

      I am very curious if you have any pictures of the design/prototyping process that were drawn out. I enjoy seeing the changes on the buildup to the final product.

      R32 owners shouldn't do this.

      Looks good to me...and it's a cosmetic mod that doesn't hurt the performance/handling of the car. I wouldn't do it myself but on the job.
      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.

      Small animal? I hit the car with cows every week. That's why it needed repaint.

      I don't know if anyone noticed but it says Bastique Art Car #02 in the video title and today I want to show you #01.

      So Art Car #01 is my brother's own VW Fox, it's his daily work ride, transporting paint, ladders and stuff. When Germany was hit by a Tornado in early 2010 it got damaged quite bad to a total loss, so he decided to take the money, get the worst dents fixed and repaint it himself with cans, that's how the whole thing started. The characters shown are like his brand marks and in contrary to my R he also used lacquer sticks. Unfortunately there is no video of that one, but some pictures:
