Summer is almost here so expect to get a bunch more questions on products from me. So with that here is number 2. Where can I get some door actuators for a mk4 jetta? This summer I am repainting my car and I figure since I am going to do that I might as well shave everything off while I am at it (door handles and emblem on trunk). So yeah, you guys are always good at pointing me in teh right direction so lemme have it

not sure about the doors, but as long as you are planning to repaint, i would suggest shaving the rub strips on the bumpers and doors and you could even go as far as having the bumpers molded into the fenders and the side skirts molded as well for the ultra smooth look- no seems. Good luck it will be a PITA but the finished product will be well worth it.

i like the idea but i also kind of like having the rub stips because those lines carry the eye across the car and it looks funny to me without. But thanks

I'm not a fan of molding the bumpers in because then they don't come off. I take mine off all the time for different things. But a shaved mk4 looks sweeeeeeeeet. Post some pics when done.

Unexpected...but defnitely agreed! I also agree about shaving the door moldings...it will look good I think.

yeah. I was thinking about shaving off the side mouldings only. I would never do the door handles, or anything else. I had an idea for moulding the front valence into the bumper (for a custom rs look). but I too would keep the rub strip...as well as a shaved p****. hahaha

Raf, were you at I.W.??? Yeah, I think lots of people got their mods on before IW, and so we got some pics, and updated our sig pics. I had to get a new one up, cause I love how my wheels look!!

bart--I kindof like the side indicators, or are you are talking about the bumper lights?

ahh, I really like the hood, but the front and back bumpers are not my thing. too flashy, the back of the car looked like it was very tall, in reality, it sat pretty low.hmmm just not my deal.
