First off the stripes are easy the blue one not so its painted on ???? so even loosing the stripes will still leave a gastly horrible blue foot thick line down her ? hence the idea of a bottom half respray in white to loose it completely which would get the wheelarches, bonnet and odd bits around her, obviously the lesser of the two as no interior work would be required
Silver or another colour
Im still not sure about it is nice and i like teh overall effect however by going that far it will mean the inside would look far more dated
Doubt i would have then prefer to size up the standard wheels and stay with oem equipment as suspension staying put where it is, so expensive alloys are pointless, unlessa set of maybe 16 v 17 " oem Volkswagen ones can be sourced that will run standard tyres
The rear box will be staying no matter what happens to the rear as it is a very useful storage are for seat, awning etc which otherwise would have knowehere to go..... [Rob weren't you the one thatw as talking about having a rear box on yours ? also its a Fiamma box in excess of £300 to buy so it willbe getting well used in the fiture be sure of that, saving loads of stuff from rattling about in the rear a pet hate of mine almost as much of a hate as lowered bone shaking T4's ]
Going to have a talk today to ask a few localish companies for their views [now i can get her out of the driveway as the snow has now gone thank god]
I am still worried about spending in excess of £3k as i doubt i would ever see the return on it should i decide at some point later to upgrade to a newer one [if i did it would be basically the same as this one only newer].
Having investigated further the other things A bar, indicators and bumper shouldnt be a massive hurdle as the back bumper needs work anyways and is probably irreplaceable i may just get both totally reburbished and keep it original but updated slightly with a bra to keep the slightly moderner look about it .....
Any further suggestions as always welcome
