    Well first thing is first these stickers have to go, we shall probably remove the tinting as well as we are trying to go retro with this project, its a blank canvass other than it has air ride fitted. IMG_2405.jpg

    Well these were cheap at the time so may stick with them as they were on the short list anyway, sent them off to be refurbished silver, silver, silver ..... Can I have them in Subaru Gold please!
    Wolfsberg centre caps (had to grind the inner wheel protector to clear the air ride) that or spacers.

    The bodywork and paint was always a bit tired and the project was for a retro bug.
    We are booked in for a respray we were looking into plasti-dipping but I'm not sure, bit old school so paint it is!
    We had chosen Saab Sepia-Krystal which is quite a dark metallic brown but doing some more research turned this up!

    Like this. That front bumper, is that V5 only with the extra lights in it? Sorry I'm new to beetles, had my plethora of mk3 Golfs and hunting the rare stuff for them was bad enough..

    It's V5 Sport only. You could get the V5 in a normal bodied Bug, but the V5 Sports had the body kit.
