    Right well Thursday i popped up to Birmingham to collect this:










    Other than the spoiler, youll see what else im using it for tomorrow with any luck.
    Also had these delivered:





    4 New tyres from Camskill and my 312mm discs to use with the Brembos.
    Unfortunately i went to collect my wheels. Got them home and had a good look and im very disappointed with them. Rung him to inform him of my disapproval and he is going to come back Thursday and re-do them

    The Kuhmos are good value for money and offer very progressive handling. I assume the badge is staying on this one Drizz? I approve ;-)

    So today then. Booked the day off work and got up the unit for 6.45 am
    And got cracking stripping the boot down:









    Emo measured and marked up:







    And made the first cut:







    A hole:







    Moved it along and offered it up:









    Emo continued working his magic. Ive never actually sat and watched him before but he is truly awesome at what he does. He is a VW nut and does everything from servicing to full restorations on bugs and campers, truly a genious!





































    And theres where we left it for tonight. Im at work tomorrow so by the time i get home it should be ready for paint

    been thinking about this - might be possible to just trim it down? setting in two new studs in the right place to secure it at the same time.
    i would imagine cutting and welding it would be a nightmare, being that its cast poor quality alloy.

    The spoiler appears to be bonded on so I'll just be bonding it on mine. The trim will be cut down and shaped to fit. It's held on by four bolts we've lost two so the remaining two will do the job fine

    Drizz, could you PM me a quote for the work to the boot lid and painting it. im extremely tempted! even a rough price to see if its within budget or not would be good.

    i am confident in cutting down the handle, its just the metal work on the boot lid and painting it thats a bit out of my depth. (although i have the equipment and am very tempted to do all the metal work)

    So yesterdays pics first, because i couldnt be arsed to upload them last night.
    Emo grinding the welds back:









    And the numberplate trim to show the difference:









    And more work:







    And very light fillering:











    And todays pics whilst its waiting to go in for paint. Emo undersealed all the welds inside the tailgate:







    And how it looks prepaint. Im well chuffed, cant wait to get it shiny again:







    Once the painter has prepped it further we will mod the boot handle to fit. Waiting till the last moment so it will fit perfectly.....

    No pics today as its in the paint shop. Going primer for the weekend as opposed to full paint because i want the marks on the rear arch taken out so he is going to paint the lot next week, but get it in primer tomorrow so i can use it over the weekend

    Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo....

    The painter skimmed over it again:







    Sanded it back and primered it:









    So we started on the handle:











    And all back together I love it. I think it transforms the rear end. Its in primer as i needed the car back for the weekend. Its back in Wednesday to have the swage line changed as its slightly out and the painter wasnt happy to leave it, smoothed down ready for paint, then have the handled fettled to be perfect, then all painted including the rear arch where it looks like bird poo has been left to eat the lacquer....








    Opinions???

    It does look reasonably cool, will be better once its in paint i recon.

    It might need some badging when its done, or it might just look a bit too bland?

    Looks great - I'd be inclined to delete the aluminium licence plate plinth though - it's a big source of rust on facelift cars.
