Well anyways, I just had to talk about this for some reason:
My friend came over today and he has a Black 2001 GTI. He wanted me to do some little details on it so we decided to start searching for possibilities. After looking we decided to:
Shave the back
Take off the front (silver) vw logo and paint it metallic black to match the car
Tape up the back of the car and Paint the VW logo on the back
Everything turned out amazing! I recommend it to anyone in this situation! Very easy...
NOTE Make sure you use primer because the plastic will not hold paint on its own very well (However, untested)
If I see some intrest in this I will take some pictures
Oh yea, we are also thinking of painting the GTI and 1.8t logos black and putting them back on. I don't think that it would look so good, I like the nice shave look. Let me know what you guys think.
