As i had a day off today i set aside it for cleaning, polishing and gerenal blinging.

This is how it was before:

Then after purchasing a big 'ol bucket of Meguiars stuff, a mk5 golf rear wiper and ordering of a passat rear badge i got to work:

Here is the result. Thought i'd go a bit arty:

TimGTI - Cheers. Its lowered on 30mm Eibach springs at present. Would love to see it slammed though!

Cluke - Cheers. They were taken using a Kodak EasyShare DX4330. A camera i got for my 21st a few years back.

N11K DJ - Cheers. The Mk5 wiper is from either a golf or polo (both the same). Cost just short of ?17 from the stealers including the arm, blade and cap. Easy fit. Direct replacement. Took aprrox. 35secs to complete. [:p]

Thanks for the photoshop TimGti - Very tempting!

PJ - Yes Fairlop Waters indeed. Instead of going in the main fairlop waters entrance, drive past it (if coming from barkingside) and take the next right turning after that. I just drove up on the grass and took them there. Tried to get the geese in the background but didn't quite work!

Nik - They're Hofele bumper inserts from Awesome GTI. I bought them for 2 reasons:

a) It rounds the front of the car off nicely and

b) Its a great vent feed if you have a CAI. Just attach the pipe to the back of the vent and all air goes directly into that inside of around it.

R44MS K - Cheers mate. Sitll contemplating the rear. Dunno whether to go Smooth and dark or contrasting. I think Viperpsych could be interested in those lights though.

They are pretty fancy I must admit, I have some paint left over from my colour code (Benefits of g/f's dad owning a bodyshop, he taught me how to spray, and i use his booth at night, heh) Can you take out the little mesh insert? As i'd like to spray that silver....

Cool. Always a good thing to know someone in the trade.

The mesh can come out but its all one item so you'd have to just use a set of cutters and a file to round it round nice. They are black plastic colour as standard.

Must redo mine at the weekend as ive used VW Indigo Blue when i've just found out my colour is in fact Pearl Blue.

D'oh!
