I'm not sure honestly, it was taken from a video. The car is out of China so it would be difficult to find it. I'll hopefully have something like this made with gorillaplitters

Yeah i havent seen a lot of custom diffusers for the mk6. I have been making all sorts of templates with and without the valence but nothing that really looks like a good fit or too out of place. Excited to see what you come up with.

Yup same here. I customized my OEM diffuser a while back but it's still not aggressive enough for what I want

MKVI BOSER?!?!?

Did you buy a 55 gallon drum of that paint?!?

You had talked about possibly shaving the fuel door in the past. Is that still going to be a thing? If so, where would you relocate it?

Pretty much haha. So what I wanted to do was use the taillight and use some brackets to have the tail light swing out. It's going to be insanely hard though so it was passed on this go around

Rock chips. Decided that since he's respraying everything but the hatch might as well make it perfect. We wet sanded the entire car yesterday and he started painting when I left. When I go back up he'll have it fully polished

Some of the fabrication we did. Sandwiched two plates for the handles. One being a bracket that the handle can bolt onto and is slotted so we can adjust it before tightening it. After a full day of wet sanding out imperfections it's ready for paint!
