Well here we go "Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  Icon_razz

Basically i brought the car off my mum early 08 after passing my test the year before and having a saxo vtr. It put me off french cars for life so a german reliable car was the option.

First thing on the agenda was to get some new wheels on it. So working for halfords i used my discount and got these...

I also upgraded the front brakes to black diamond drilled and grooved discs and pads. Gave the calipers a quick paint too.

"Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  21082008066

Next on the agenda was to get it lower and being a student at the time i went for just the springs. I also invested in some 20mm hubcentric spacers.

"Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  29082008074

Before Spacers:

After with springs fitted too:

"Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  29082008081

After a good wash polish and wax i used the meguiars clay and 3 step kit for this.

I then got fed up with looking at the epic fail of the wood effect vw used as trim in the gti's so then that was changed to this.....

I then invested in some sparco wipers, bonnet bra and a bailey dv. A original mod in my opinion a real golf ball "Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  Icon_razz

"Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  16042009173



After this i then decided that i was going to turn my car into more of a project so first thing was to sort out all the little niggly bits i.e bumpers few little rust bits. So off came everything lights etc. I then undersealed the car and behined the wheel arch liners. Not too bad rust wise for a 10 year old car imo. Clutch also got replaced too and a few "small running issues"

After this i then lost my job so things went on hold for a while before i got another job and more funds. I then brought my ninja as a cheaper mode of transport for the summer so id save money on fuel and i could then not have a strict time scale to work on the car.

I then had to change the clutch which was a fiasco as i found out my clutch was a later bigger diameter than the one that should have been on there "Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  Icon_scratch as the car had stood for a month or so i found that it was drinking water i thought nothing of this so it went into a garage to have the cambelt and water pump replaced etc which revealed the head gasket had gone. So im hoping to hear back from them soon.


After much thinking I decided it was time for a fresh look after the car being away for so long so as most of you may know i puchased these off matty last weekend.....

Had a couple of the bolt heads snap off but ill get that sorted.

Im hopefully getting the car back this week after having the head put back on then its on with finishing the bumpers and sorting a rusty sill out then its mot time. "Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  Icon_rolleyes I got some hottuning coilovers so ill fit those after the mot.

At this moment im stripping the wheels apart still deciding on a colour scheme but watch this space guys "Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  51732

no can do dude, firstly its almost impossible to photoshop polished metal without taking hours and the other things you were talking about is also very hard with out silly time.

just use your imagination, its like free photoshop without days of my life attached "Sesil" The Mk4 20VT  651561
