Oh and by the way, the car was red, i painted it "Pearlescent tri-coat white" from the 2009-2013 ford edge limited, sorry for the non-high def camera, it was from my iphone
Alright so been puttin this golf together for a couple months now, it was wrecked in the front (minor collision) picked it up for like 500$ runs great, I own a body shop in Tarpon springs florida so I decided to put it together how I wanted it, Like the title says constructive criticism is welcome, no smart ass remarks, I really would like to see what some of you vortexers have to say and what kind of ideas you can throw out there for me, cars not done yet, still needs a lot like all new suspension, wheels, turn and fogs and a VR swap haha, but for now i'm sticking to the 2.slow till it croaks (it's got 140k so it's gonna be a while) here are a few pictures, I'd like to know what you guys would recommend, wheels, suspension ect.. here we go
oh and by the way, i also painted the tail lights, here are some pictures of that
and yes I know the VW sign is upside down, it was on purpose
keep the tint, lose the eyebrow.
get some bumper lights either oem all clear or a nice tinted set off ebay. The quality isn't top notch but for the price they look ok.
the tails look great. Nice job painting them.
I'd also agree to fix the emblems and the missing molding as well.
Paint looks good. I love white cars when done nice and clean. Of course lower it and if you going to keep those wheels get some spacers. check out www.adaptecspeedware.com they make quality spacers and supply all the hardware.

If I get another MK3 in the future it will be white. Love the white. I would get OEM textured side strips and texture the top of front and rear bumper cover, yellow OEM fog mod, smoke the indicator lights and middle dummies, and joey mod the round in the dual chambers yellow, cheap and easy and IMO looks so nice with white.
And you're well ahead of many of us if you own an auto body shop...

New seats going in tomorrow! will take pics and post, today i put in new seatbelts, new turn signal stalk, flip out dvd (still need to do wire tuck in the back to get it in all the way) got 2 12's and a 1200 watt monoblock diamond audio amp, just need a ported box and a capacitor, tomorrow I'll be trying to fix my bogging issue, and installing the new seats, hopefully i'll have the new exhaust by the end of the month, and the suspension in the beginning of sept, then i gotta take a break from the spending to order my new wheels!
Thank you guys for all the great comments and ideas! So here's my plans for the future, gotta work at it semi-slowly but owning a body shop and getting things at cost, I can pull this little guy together pretty quickly, we'll see how it goes! Now, as I said yesterday, got the new seats today! great junkyard find, paid 100$ for all of them, theirs 1 tiny rip in the drivers seat, looks like someone may have been wearing something with a button or somethin of the sort, the seats were dusty but I gave em a good deep cleaning (thank god for super clean) next thing I got to do is flip those emblems right side up because they're annoying me, after that I'll be getting my new exhaust, I found a pace setter exhaust on amazon (I know lame I'm using amazon) but it seems like a good deal, and I'm not looking for anything insanely fancy, I wanted to go with Magnaflow but 230$>440$ ya know? It's a non catback exhaust here's a link to it, let me know what you think :
I'm still having the bogging issue, but for some reason now it's only happening when the cars warm, so we'll see I still have a few more things to try, if I can't figure it out myself I'll ask for some help from you guys. Soon I'll be looking for some suspension goodies, I'd love to go air but that'll only be in the future right now I need some suggestions as to what has worked for you guys to get desired ride height, I want it low low, I live in florida so most of the roads are smooth sailin so I can slam it without many worries. here's some pictures of the seats :
they're still wet in the picture from the washing, but they're gettin nice and clean, keep throwin me your guys' suggestions, I like your ideas, and I've decided to go white on black, I'm gonna look for the black bumper top moldings, if you guys have any links to good deals on that kind of **** let me know, I need to get rid of the eyebrow, not only is it annoying to drive with that thing in my way (I'm 6'3'') but it's a huge eye sore, once again thanks for your guys' support!
