ok- So going to miss quite a few bits out but as said above i will try come back and edit them in at a later date. Its all normal stuff, eg. install pics of most of list above regarding mounts,tint, rcd510, exhaust.... but all things we have seen time and time again. The car has always been maintained and looked after thoroughly, with an oil change every 15/20,000klm along with cam follower changes and break ,maintenance.
She is sadly getting into the high mileage category at 115000klm. Not crazy but when you buy her new and she goes past that 100k mark it makes her feel old. Belt is yet to be changed and high on the "to do list".
Never had any issues with it - touch wood- other than standard stuff. Faulty coil pack and at that time i upgraded to the Audi RS4 ones and have been going strong ever since. Replaced both disks, fronts twice. Always used oem pads. I have had the Forge DV since I went stage one as that was something that gave way almost in an instant, never had any issues since, just the odd service once in a blue moon.
Had all four wheel bearings replaced about 6 months ago. Got one issue with the airbag light that i have never figured out but that's just being lazy on that topic. Its the passengers side seat that is the issue and a common fault just like i say never got round to sorting it out. The only other thing i can think of was my lamb sensor went bad and had to replace that at quite an expense for just a wire. Other than these few things i have had great luck with the car seeing its an 07 and i have always read a few horror storys but thankfully for me no such bad luck. Reason I still have my car, never felt the need to replace it and it still puts a smile on my face every day I drive it. Put so much time and money in I'm not sure I will ever sell..(figure of speech really but yet to see)

The one thing that was starting to let it down was the body. I mean to everyone else the car was more than perfect but to me, the paint was starting to show its age with a few marks here and there along with a dent in my roof left from a lorry flicking a large rock at the car and the worst bit was my bonnet. Some time ago i parked my car in an underground over night, well when I returned I found a white pile of residue left from a leaking pipe above my space. The salt in the water sadly started to eat through the clear. Tried polished it away as good as I could but then one day about 4 months back while in the hand car wash using the power hose, it actually lifted the lacquer on the damaged area and left the bare paint underneath on show. I was a sad person for the next few months- until now that is.:happyman:
To start it off, last week I took it to the best body shop on the coast to let them do their thing. I obviously told them exactly what I wanted along with providing photos of others I have seen over the years. The fact I am close friend with the garage and owner I have been very hands on my self and been there the majority of the work. It really has been a great experience. Yes costly but still great
So I'm going jump straight into the up to date stuff, as is now the car is in a local body shop getting some rather special treatment.
Doors fully shaved along with custom made door handles, pulled and smoothed rear quarters, shaved and smoothed front bumper and also bonnet(hood) notch filled.
Just getting it done in the oem bmp again. No fancy colour change for me as much as I would like to that means spending 4k on paint on a golf, OK that's doing it right but the only way i would consider, so for this car, sticking with the oem colour.
on to the first lot of many pics to come.
Remember this is for no shows, I don't have them where I live. This is just purely for my enjoyment and building my perfect mkv. It will still be daily driven when all complete, dog will still be jumping in the boot most days to come along on the ride. Yes I will be paranoid but it just means i have to pay for parking in nice spaces like I used to before the car started to get older.
If you look at this topic you will actually see the the burn on the bonnet that I was talking about in an earlier post.

if you also look at that last pic you will you will notice the passengers side handle is finished, so on to pics of the fab work we had to do the actual handle to make it all sit true and flush. Real happy with how it turned out.

so as you can see we had to modify the handle its self by grinding it down and making a template so it would sit flush under the the filled notch. Made the plastic insert and the proceeded to plastic weld and mold them together. Quite a bit of thought had to go into this part but really happy with the outcome.

and as of now that's it as watching top gear.
still the door skins need to come off tomorrow for welding up the holes as well as welding in the bonnet (hood) notch, not to mention finishing off drivers door handle before it will be ready for paint. Aiming to have it back next weekend so lets see, if all goes well, ill be updating this sooner rather than later.
One last pic of the inside of the finished moulded handle.


ps.Tyler, was that fast enough for you?
Got a few more I'll post up of it primed in an hour or so.
;)

No badged - front and back. Max is the inspiration behind the de-notched bonnet but still running the badge grill.
