    Re: the rear bumper, it was green like the paint, but was partially rubbed back, its getting completely rubbed down, as is the front bumper in the new year and repainted And i like it how it is, but its not what i want, its not stanced at all how i want, especially when i get bags, so thats an excuse to get some new rims, and not deep dish, im past that cliche...

    its all in the project name, its an old school car, but i wanna kick the scene up the a**e and bring it bang up to date with a new cool 2011 flavour ****** gonna ****

    Thing is, the fronts could probably be spaced another 10mm or so, and the reasr are pretty much tucked atm :P

    Hello, i've a Mk2 golf as well and i cant seem to get the tuck you have at the back. How did you modify the arches to fit them rims and does it rub much when ya hit a bump at the back??

    Thanks for any advice

    what size and offset are your wheels? my rear archs are g60s so slightly wider, with the internal metal of original arch cut away a fair bit, still rubs with people in the back, but thats down to shoddy old coils.

    Yeah lewis is pretty sound.
    I've probably met you at some point
    Ah right, got to the stage where you dont wanna change it anymore?
    Or just bored of it?

    Wanna stance mine but got budget insurance which doesn't allow suspension mods. So I gotta wait til that's done.

    haha probably :P
    Its more of the fact that due to the big bumpers, the front splitter is already pretty damn low, but side on the car doesnt sit low enough for my likings, its deffo not stanced.
    And then im real tempted to go out and find something from the 80s/90s that hasnt been 'done' before, and give it the full VW treatment
