car looks clean.
maybe consider going back to chrome badges, might look better with your new wheels.
Hey guys this is my way of archiving the life of my first car so bare with me here and leave some input.
Bought an 2003 gti 1.8t with a lot of miles but in great shape
With miles, comes maintenance. My father and I replaces some sensors, fixed some vacuum leaks, plugs, coilpacks, oil, coolant, ect.. With our work I passed emissions which was a reason for the owner selling it, and got the cel to turn off
My dads 99 roadster
Next thing to come was some movements in bad direction happened
little bit of tint, black emblems, debadge. I though it was looking kinda good now
I refurbished the headlamps and boy do these look good for OEM
wheels are black for WINTERxMODE
Then came a little step in my future stance game, some clean audi fat fives
So this is happening, very exited with some progress
Then I got the hatch done!
Thats it for now

My original plan with the fat fives was a gloss white powder coat, call me crazy but I like the crazy contrast off all black and bright white wheels. I'm not set on it though, either that or polish them very well, which will look a lot more OEM+ which I like but wont be very different I guess .
in ****ty winter-weather states plasti-dipping tires is a pretty leet way to avoid wheel damage during the rainy/snowy months. saves you from buying winter wheels at least -- since this is seemingly your daily driver it could be a smart move.
i can see a point to dipping badges but i think maybe since your car is black, dipping badges black may be a bit overkill. certainly doesn't look terrible, i'll be dipping my red car's emblems because i believe plastic fake-chromed badges are "played" as the kids call it these days, but arguably so is plasti-dip lol.
tldr: sweet car, digging the dip
spiral out... keep going
I know your pain man, except I quit my job to finish up senior year with good grades
Im scared to weld it with my mig because I dont want to warp the metal too hot. I'll have my boss tig it for me I guess. I had the intention to weld it all up but the metal is soo thin. not like my old project 77 el camino Im sure tig will be alright especially since I took a good amount of paint, I really dont want it to warp
