Holy cow! I have just leaped into the 80's. I just fugured out how to post these pictures. A while back, one of the threads about ground effects asked for a shot, and I could not get it to take becuase of size. Anyway, humor me, I am no longer digitally challenged.
I used the factory paint code for Candy White Scans007 so wonderfully hosts on his pimpmyauto page, gave it to a local paint and body guy I know and he made it up for me ( I don't know the process he had to go through but it cost about $45 for less than a quart.) I also had to buy a new tip for my paint pump, I didn't know that and would have just used the same one I used for my house....that was a good question to ask 'cause it would have been baaaad
I give it up to auto paint guys, it was a bit harder to work with the auto paint than the oil based and water based paints I have used for things around the house.
I did the red "I" to match the red "T" on my rear 2.0T badge....besides, it's a classic GTI thing to have a red "I".
Edit: BCRUZIN: Great minds think alike!! Do it up!!
note on the left hand side, i dont have a pic for it left yet, but ur gonna need to make a cut soo the MAF fits.
ur gonna need to take off the heatshield, its made of steel and would b a pain in the ass to cut through. Also it allows you to get close to the grommets. Line im as close as possible to them, but avoid cutting them off, they are needed to secure the back of the engine cover down.
on the right hand side its the bottom part of the intake that needs cut off too.
here is the final look at it after its installed. Definitely worth doing!, looks better than the carbon fiber cover that neuspeed sells and doesnt cost you a thing.
