It looks like me and J111ASE will be doing the swap, just want to make sure about all the bits we need to swap, think i read somewhere about arch liners and the front slam panel? Know all the obvious bits like wings, bonnet, bumper, lights and grill is there anything else?

I would of used the search function but it still seems to be switched off!

Didn't someone mention in the Bolf / Gora thread last week that you don't need to to swap the slam panel?

No worries mate,

I'm not even sure if i'm gonna go ahead with it now.

It's gonna cost a fair bit for a front end spray job?

Doh.......

I'll let you know

That's what I'm worried about too - I'm in two minds about whether to get decent parts from the breakers in my car's colour too, as there may be a tiny difference that could stick out like a sore thuumb!

Even if you get second hand parts that are in good condition.

You would really have to blend the wings and doors.

I think i'll give it a miss.

I have other things to spend it on.

Good luck mate.

I think I'll just keep my eyes open and get the parts a bit at a time, then get the spraying done bit by bit too!
Patience...

We never blended the paint on our cars and the match is pretty much spot on.
Sorry mate I mant to say certain colours would need blending.

Mine is reflex silver, apparentlly 7 different shades.

DOH!

Your lucky.

Unlike me.....[:(]

Looks very nice anyway mate.

Keep up the good work

Bloody hell, 7 different shades of silver???? Mind you I know a painter who says that silver is the hardest to match.

Cheers for your comments Dan, still a few wee bits and bobs to do but its now getting there.

Sombody on ebay is selling all of the parts needed to put a bora front end on a Golf for ?200.

They are in Green, but why not buy them and sell yours on ebay. Free swap apart from paint.

Don't have link sorry but type in Bora and you should find them.
