Finally starting some body work on my GLI. I acquired a real boser extension about a month ago

welded it up, filled it, etc and now its sitting in primer



After that I finally started on the dreaded jetta fender rusting problem because of all the crap that gets stuffed behind it.


the rust ended up spreading into the rockers

So I didn't want to buy new/aftermarket fenders and I wasn't going to pay the money for OEM. I decided just to cut out like half of the inner lip and the very bottom where it bolts to the rocker and just remake it like so


Right now its sitting with primer on the hood and both fenders , Im gonna try and find time to spray it this week hopefully and post pictures.

There's a chance it was actually my computer acting up, but regardless I think the images are there now. All you needed was the IMG code and not the URL code you had posted first. Just for next time :K:

Yeah Im trying to figure out a way to keep all that debris from building up back there besides having to pull your fender liner all the time and spray it out.

Made a little progress last weekend. Painted the back side of the hood and added a little something haha.

Layed down my base color


Mixed up a little blue lagoon and layed it here


Layed down my stencil and sprayed some white


Masked it back off and sprayed the outer area back to Grey


Then I cleared it, sanded and buffed it and it came out pretty good!

So this is how my car is sitting right now.. on ST coilovers. I want to bring the front down a little more but the back is as far down as it goes. Any ideas on what I can do to bring the rear down

Very clean. If you want to aquire moar lowz, remove rear perches (or just perch collars) and get polo bushings for the front.

Yes but I believe its because I put then in the wrong way. I'm going to give then another try this summer
