      You guys kinda dropped the ball on this one. I have been silently collecting parts over here. Got tires on my tear drops last weekend. Threw the tires on. Here’s a before and after picture.

      Are the caps metal?

      Yes, I forgot to mention I got my caps after my wheels got polished. That’s why they look off. Waiting for my whee guy to make the 2 hour drive over the hill to get them polished too! I’ll have him touch up the wheels while he is in town.

      Looks really solid. Currently looking (not too hard I might add) for some tear drop center caps. Good luck with it keep us posted.

      Speaking of bumpers. I bought these about a month ago. I need to take some more pictures but can anybody tell me what they are for?

      They could be bumpers for a rabbit! You bought bumpers without knowing what vehicle they’re for? You’ll find out when you install them.

      I was told they are euro bumpers for a mk1. I don’t know special parts for early vw’s at all. Bought them for what I thought was a reasonable price and realized the mounting brackets look totally different. Was hoping someone here could tell me what vw they belong on.

      Euro bumpers for a Mk1 Jetta or Scirocco don’t have turn signals so I’m sure they are for a rabbit. You’ll need to pick up new hardware as the bolts are smaller than for the US bumpers. You’ll also need these clips. http://www.mk1autohaus.com/Euro-Bump...nt_p_6736.html

      The downside is you’ll have two sets of turn signals.
