You got my vote and my wife loves the trim!

just got her a passat 1.8T estate and would like to know what sort of money to re-trim that and my MK4 golf?[:D]

nice project you've got there going! As per other's comments, love the retrim! [Y]

One thing i would say though, centralise the number plate, and maybe go back to the original lights. These ones look too clear imo. But its all personaly preference. [:)]

dude your car looks awesome, always liked the new bug's, loving the quality of your work aswel.

You mentioned you discovered Meg's Clay, have you been over to DetailingWorld, the guys on there will take your paintwork to another level, alot of tips to get your car looking gleaming. I'd certainly recommend checking it out.

cheers ,the number plate has gone altogether now that ive got the new bumper on!although i love asymetrical stuff and i have some u.s spec lights going on when the rear bumper gets fitted ,as ive never been sure about the rears myself, i was going to tint them yello ,but they are abit too lexus looking ,so they are going!!!

yes ive seen the detailing site.to be honest im not big into cleaning cars much except for shows, as its a daily driver and certainly gets 'driven'[;)],although i have to get it up to scratch soon as it going on the meguiars stand at ultimate dubs next year,which is a bit scary ,so im on a mission to get it finished and looking the dogs

cheers for the comments folks its nice to get some feedback

to be honest, alot of time and effort but not much money,as i try to barter/swap on all my jobs with like minded people who have a trade to swap!!

so none of the bodyshop work has been paid for ,as the painter has a porsche that ive re trimmed,also the mechanic i use also now has a retrimmed car,i think the only thing ive paid full whack for were the coilovers!!

so if anyone on here has a trade to offer or parts to swap and wants a retrim/trimming work,im ya man..ha ha

cheers
