right, not sure who really reads this but I thought i'd update it a little..

Fresh badges, kinda prefer the silver 'polo' rather than the older black I had, my brother hand painted the 'supercharged' one:


Next up, was my birthday and my sister got me a 'stubby aerial and a fresh seal too  ::) (still needs a little work so it's consistent width)


the chap on eBay messed me around with the GT wheel so I've ended up just keeping the 300mm momo, hand painted the text red and put black bolts in, it'll do for now.


my boost gauge insert was a little naff and rushed before (made from a spare ash tray insert).
Anyway I had a spare parcel shelf which some guy had drilled 6x9 in so it was worthless anyway, I cut a square out the right size and drilled the 58mm? hole into it to fit the gauge, then i covered it with some random cloth stuff i found in the house, wrapped and glued and slots in nice with no need for bolts, can be adjusted whenever too;

That car looks soo good, how easy was the supercharged badge to hand paint as mine needs doing,
I like the touch up on the momo too looks really smart
Such a  clean body too
Love it

Hi, thanks for the comment ;)
It's not easy to paint the supercharged badge, because it's a weird surface, when you paint onto it, it kinda sucks the paint to the center of each letter and leaves an uneven surface :s.
My brother had to do my to finish as it's quite frustrating. but i'm sure you'll manage it, its yours painted silver?

To answer jezza, the wheels on the first page are 13x5.5 original g40 wheels, but on the last few pictures (e38 ones) I've put 13x6 which were originally an extra option for the MK1 golf, or so i've read.

Yea, I think the little extra dish really helps on the 13x6ers'.. Your badge looks pretty good in silver to be honest  ;D

Well hopefully I will get a new rear badge when I'm feeling
A bit more flush, then the silver badges will match
But there are many more things to sort first. Mainly the engine
