I love how you painted the front clip red! Do you have any head-on shots we can look at to get a better view?

Would love to see a full frontal shot of this car... and please let us know what it took to get that lower piece painted, seems like masking it would be difficult, but if you could separate the ribs from the base, that would make it a lot cleaner/easier to do.

I removed the bumper from the car using a guide from a Mk5 GTI (it is pretty identical), removed the piece and then dropped it off at a paint shop. It is slightly difficult to remove the piece as there are lots of small clips holding it to the bumper grills.

i love the red painted bumper piece...

do you have to mask off the whole bumper to paint that or does the piece pop out on its own?

I know it's an old pic...please excuse the bump, but what percent tint is that?

Looks like 20% all around in one shot, but 20% on the rears/35% on the sides in another.

I've had probably a dozen cars or so and I've always rocked the 20% on every window. For some reason, with the new GTI, I'm considering 35%.

I ask because I've got the same car, obv. Thanks in advance.
