    rip off painter

    Seems alot initially but when its broken down and thought about you start to realize its not as bad. I was in the same boat. Car was goin in for warranty on the two front wings and i said id pay the extra to do the bonnet n bumper at the same time and i was quoted £520. Thought it was alot but its at an approved vw bodyshop which meant id have a come back and still continue my 12 year corrosion warranty if anything was to happen. Thankfuly i managed to get it down a bit but im still paying 400. I cant grumble as im getting 2 new wings and a full front end paint job from it now.

    20V MK2

    ABF box bolts up no bother man. Thats what my mate was going to use in his conversion. Can use the same seat conversion kit for the clutch cable as well. Looked into it all when i was going to 20v the old rado man.

    6N2 Pedal Box

    Should be able to pick one up fairly cheap on ebay man. Can fit it yourself depending how competant you are but yeh id say labour would be more than the part if you want a garage to do it.

    Redders NEW ride.... Full rebuild.

    Brutal man! Must of got some right wheel wobble off the state of that. Looks awesome with them new wheels on it too. First time iv seen it with them on mate. I had a claim with a council up this way man and it took 2 months for them to pay out. Got £1200 from them but was not easy at all. Nearly every 2nd day i had to be following it up on the phone and by letter. Had pics of damage to my wheel and also pics of the pot hole. Had to have a invoice for the new parts/work to repair it too.

    My black vr6

    Yeah i felt no rear seats was bit too much as well. Lol have some more fun with it before you decide to part with it. The now iv got a polo 6n2 and a corrado storm but never been happy since sold my Golf. Sold it for the yellow corrado in my sig then sold that few months back now. Storms just a bit of a project,even though its still a vr its just not the same as the golf lol. Selling them both to go back to a mk3 vr6.

    My black vr6

    Looking good man, didnt know you were on here aswell as vr6oc. Id stick with the rear seats in, i tried the stripped out way when had my cage n that in mine but thought was better with the seats in. Lucky youve not got headrests though as i had to remove mine lol. Not up for selling it?

    Power steering pump

    They both run differnt pulleys. Would imagin putting the right pulley on a gti one it may but for the hastle can pick up a vr6 powersteering pump with pulley for not alot. Think i might have one kicking about.

    amateur painting thread

    Was 2k paint we used. Solid colour. No laquer on it so sadly will fade later but enough paint on it so work with if it needs brought back up. Spent about 5 days on the finishing though to make it look its best. Lots of wet sanding and compounding really.

    Me and one of my mates done my old rado in his garage. No pro's etc but couldnt of asked for better job. Really went to town on it though.

    2.8 vr6 need more power

    Good filter like BMC and system with a decat and 6 brancher does no too bad. Little bit more you could put on a rado 2.9 inlet and throttlebody but not major change there. Then your into cams charger or turbo really.

    Ideas For My New VR6.....

    Have to agree with above, reading through the add put me off just with the way its described. May not be alot of money at 750 but could get a standard colour highline needing a little work for not much more and ALOT less miles on it. Colour is very in your face aswell but that might be what you liked about it. Seems the colour stands out but the rest of the car looks pretty apart from a set of wheels.
