Can't quite decide what it wants to be, with bits cribbed from all sorts of other cars...

Got my car back from the bodyshop today so went out for a wee drive and took some snaps while I was at it. Not the best - or the cleanest - but I was enjoying myself! Will update tomorrow with what I was getting done.

So is it a Bora?

More Bora influences

Beetle sport pins

Passat W8 (yeah, I wish!) modded with blue LEDs

The Bora sport sneaks in again! (Couldn't be bothered getting out to take a pic of the front seats with nice built up side bolsters, more supporting than the Golf GTi interior)

What's going on here then? Bit of mix & match but I like it!

While we're at it... sorry about the dirt but might as well!

Bit of a cheeky monkey in there too!

Thanks for all the comments guys! [:D] Wasn't really planning on doing
a photoshoot but once I got my nice clean car back from the bodyshop I
couldn't resist.

In total I got done:

Resprayed rear hatch due to lacquer peeling

Resprayed rear bumper due to me scuffing it

Sprayed smooth bump strips for back

Fitted anniversary valance and sprayed again to blend with bumper

Put my rear view mirror back on after I pulled it off and couldn't get it back on

Touched up scuff on wheel arch, scrape in door and went round car doing other wee bits

Pulled out bad dent in door

Painted calipers

Touched up wheels

Steam cleaned engine bay

Polished and waxed all of the bodywork

All for the princely sum of 200 quid, pretty chuffed tbh

I haven't detailed all of the modifications which I have done, also changed the following:

GTi tail lights

Front seats are heated

Wolfsburg plate surrounds (acquired from WOB VW dealers in person [;)])

Colour coded rear badge, calipers, rub strips

Polo wiper

Aerial from a Honda!!

Wheels

Lowered

Aluminium bonnet strut waiting to go in

I think its beautiful. The bonnet and
headlights look ace! Hope I can make my 1.4 look anywhere near that
stylish someday [:$]
If you're anything like me, it takes persistence... sometimes love the thing and other times hate it!

I've been modding this for nearly 2 years now, just in little spells as & when I can afford it!

I love those pics[:D] Its all in the detail.Love
those Bora air vents. Was they easy to change? P.S love your car as
well[H]
Thanks [:)] I don't think the vents are *too* hard to change, there are
guides kicking about here and on the web. But somebody else did it for
me tbh, part of my Christmas present lol

Haha! No not this time, don't fancy the comeback if I got caught [:|]
