      I'll keep pics in here from now on. Still no car wash. Just got back home. If you were at RIT you got to see the car in action, so to speak!

      I know it's got things that need addressing, and they will be, shortly!

      This is a start though!

      But I'm not too sure how I feel about Schmidts on a Mkv Jetta.

      It's a good start, I would get that notch filled and lose the votex fron lip and eyelids.. looks out of place without the rest of the kit.

      Agreed. Maybe painting the lip would set it in place a little more if youre in love with it.

      Reason why lip isn't painted is because it will get scraped etc, I kinda like it, but I'm not sure. I was thinking of putting factory Gil lip back on.

      I'm still deciding on the grille. I like Big Meech's front end. I think I'd lke chrome face and mirrors. Or Wolfe grills with badge.

      I'll see how much $$$ it is o fill the notch though.

      Yeah I know what you mean about the lip getting beat up. I'm a fan of the badge on the mkvs myself.

      I just put the Gli lip back on, and yanked the eyelids off

      I just need a body guy to fill the notch, or grill with VW badge. I like the grill idea myself

      you should plasti dip the votex and put it back on. plasti dip matches the textured lowers nicely, my friend did his like that.

      I think I'm going to loose badge less. There's shiny stuff on each side of the car now, except th front!

      I just need to figure out with what. Buddy of mine said he could weld the notch for me closer to summer.
