yes its a complete DIY with no external support except the paint shop guy who painted it black
Wow nice though and the results are good too. Just give the logo a coat of clear to seal the chrome sticker . Also there are guys now who do chrome plating to platics too.

Hats off to you! Who could have thought that the Badges were the solution!

However, arent the Badges supposed for one time use only?

Whatever! Great refurbishment!


Cheers!

Hey. I know a person who has scrapped his MK2 Jetta RHD just last month!
Kindly go to this place in Kurla called 'cst road'
Ask for Javed automobiles ('Dawood chacha ki dukaan'). Easiest way to locate him would be searching for some classic mercedes or audi being dis-assembled.

He has exactly what all you need up there!
all the best, and pls do post pics of your beauty
thanx man, but a bit late, I've got all those parts, plus more, plus suspension parts.
She isn't a beauty at all right now, stripped down for body and underbody tin work, lots of work.
I've got a friend who gets old vw parts and knows where to get what, I'll forward you his number once I can P.M. you!
I'm on the look out for an mk1 golf, any ideas ?

Hi Manish,
I actually experimented the clear coat on another sample on the same film, and it seems to kill the reflectivity. hence decided not to coat my badges. anyways, the film is automotive OEM part, so its quite safe used without any coat.
besides, already spoke to few people tho chrome plate plastics, and they refused flatly for a single piece deal.
but thanks anyways

Hello Kevin!
Extremely sorry for the late reply.. firstly.
I haven't yet begun a total ground-up restoration of the car as I drive it to work almost every day. So whatever changes or improvements I am able to do over weekends i go ahead with it. Restoration plan is for 2015, if things work out as expected.

I haven't yet begun a full fledged restoration yet, as i drive it to work almost every day now.I though have plans for total ground-up restoration in late 2015, if things work out as planned.
