That looks evil [Y]

Excellent choice of rims, and I would also leave the black rub strips and handles, they work so well. I prefer the genuine Anni headlamps but those still look the business on your colour scheme. Have you got a front VW badge at all? If that was mine I'd keep the silver rear badge, to maintain the silver/chrome accents. All looks very brutish in an old skool way.

i was thinking about the centre pillars in black and i think i may have to go for it now if others agree it could look good, the roof is also going to go black with it.

i done the badges as first mods but their both goin soon due to boot smoothing and badgeless front grill in black

cheers for the comments people[:D], didnt no what reaction id get as its not the usual route people take on here

i got the lights done by a bodyshop, they used a combination of tinting spray and a light black paint so they still alow the lights to shine through strong enough

I know most colour code their rub strips and handles, but in this case I would say dont - the black and gold scheme works really well, and IMO looks really smart in a cool and "not like everyone else's" kind of way.

I like the way you got all the black bits and bobs, and the black/chrome wheels fit perfectly with the scheme. Whats the front like, I would think maybe a black grill badge would suit it - if you got the standard grill that is - or a mesh grill could work too if you wanna go that option.

Good work fella [Y]

Progressing nicely, very 'bumble bee' mate. I noticed your bootlid is a different shade to the rest of the panels(?) - maybe it's the lighting.

I'm curious to see the results of your artwork. Sweet ride[Y]

Colour code the strips and door handles.

Apart from that it's good.

Surely those spray painted rear clusters are illegal aren't they?

i hope your lights and indicators can be seen by other motorists during the day let alone at night.

it isnt a different colour, its the way the strip lights in the car park caught it as there was one above the car, in natural light it looks spot on.

the said parts are being removed rather than colour coded

the rear lights, i have not had any problems with them from police even though i have been stop checked for my details and they looked around the car. it is proffesional tint spray on then so the lights come through just fine in the day and look even better at night.i no its not the R,C,C,Rs everyone else has but i like em.

same thing goes for the pin striping work again its personal taste and i rele like it, plus its gona be free[;)]

Very nice indeed ! at first I was like Hmm.. not so sure.. but yeah it's a good un. Def get an aero or fabia wiper to match the smooth hatch now though.. less is more, I always think.. top stuff. looks good and not too ott, but in a different way. [:D]
