You may remember this13244225_10153640452640662_3809889669848259213_o.jpg got it mot'd got it home, and started taking it to bits, and generally titting about with it..ergopic 25.png

Latest is driver's door, which was pretty bolloxed.............my intricate welding skills are pants, so bodgery transpired, involving rust killer, a hammer, a fibreglass kit, and a good dollop of Satan's shaving foam...to wit;IMG_0031.JPG IMG_0034.JPG

 

By the way, I heartily recommend this stuff;IMG_0033.JPG

 

After repairing said door, time for a bit more titting aboutIMG_0036.JPG IMG_0037.JPG IMG_0037.JPG IMG_0043.JPG

 

All done with Rustoleum rattle cans [base coat and 'flake, and cheapo B&Q wood, copper strip is garden stuff for repelling slugs.............................

I was kinda wondering how long it would take for someone to slate you.
This forum doesn't appear to like modifying motors so I took a look at what I post and pretty much all my threads happen to be modifications one way or another, I decided against touching the sierra but still can't sell it so what are you supposed to do.

I think it's just nice to have a thread that isn't just click bait or a carbon copy of something that's been done before.
I'm thinking "what are xxxxx like?" when there'll already be half a dozen threads answering that if you just use the search function.
If i don't like a thread, i don't look at it.
Is there a specific style your aiming for with the passat, or just trying different things out?

Its fine, its yours, do what you like with it.

I like it.

I like the standard car, but you know, its quite funky and nice.

 

Im looking for a classic ped, and when I eventually get one its getting painted yellow & black like a wasp. Balls to the purists.

 

Mind you, if you pour nitromors over it and dangle an iron from the rear lashing eye I'll set the Incredible Smurf on you...

I was expecting a thread where you returned it to standard.

Unsure of what reaction you expected, it's clear that the 'inevitable' word will pop up somewhere in another member's reply though.

Difficult for me to envisage the whole from just seeing a panel or two. I like the look of how it was but as others have said, it's your car you do what you want to it.

 

Look forward to seeing how it progresses.
