Awesome build by the way, such a shame the US doesn’t get the coolest of the wagons like the R and the GTD
      I saved the fender badges, I'll decide once it's all one color and back together.

      No major updates yet, Friday I finally dropped everything off to be painted. I also stopped by my friend's shop and my headliner still isn't done, but he assures me it will be this week. If all goes well, it should be 100% next weekend.

      I've never really had any interest in a personalized plate before, but for some reason I decided to get one for this car, should be here in 8-10 weeks.

      Absolutely amazing build... FWIW, I vote NO fender badges--keep it quiet and clean well done--it must be so cool to drive this knowing what it is and the work that went into it. Anyone who knows anything about these cars will see yours and know immediately what it is

      Finally got all my body parts painted and installed....

      The headliner is done and installed, but I'm still waiting for a few of the pillars. By the end of this week it will be 100% done, finally.

      Brilliant! Looks amazing. Congrats and thanks for sharing your journey!


      P.S. Your influence lives on... my GTI front bumper (previously owned but with all the trimmings) arrived on Friday so I now have a little project of my own to work on. (as soon as the grandkids get back to school) Thanks for the motivation.

      You sir made my Sunday afternoon! Amazing results!

      Are you planning on keeping those wheels or converting to Golf R-esque wheels too? (thinking 19” Pretorias would look amazing on there)

      I did wonder if this might be the case. For a stock Alltrack/4MO Golf Sportwagen, this is a hell of a deal. If only I didn't owe acres of cash this year...

      Looks really amazing, great work.

      Have you sorted out the interior trim/headliner yet?
