Traceys Grey Bagged MK5 - 14/02/16
« on: August 24, 2014, 09:04:03 PM »
Alright lads, Aidan here from Ireland, due to no sites over here ive been on this for last few months! Been over at UD last year was class compared to the shows here! will definitely be back again!  :smiley: Just picked up my new Mk5 golf today, Sold my MK4 a few weeks ago and wanted to upgrade to a 3 door grey MK5, got close enough to it , picked up a grey 5 door in very good condition at a good price so im fairly happy  :smiley:!  My last golf went a bit extreme with the work i had on it, ended up giving me a lot of trouble so had to move on to something a bit newer, Have a few plans for this but nothing to extreme  :happy2:

Anyway, This is my old car and new car, It's a 05 TDI 105BHP ... In great condition Engine wise, Interior and Exterior other than both front wins have a bit of rust on the lips and the back badge has that wormy effect.. Delighted with it now tbh and looking forward to doing few things to it!





Already have few parts and stuff here for it... Got myself a R32 rear bumper without the exhausts, Got a set of 18" RH ZW4 with the centres done in Dolphin Grey, Cant wait to have them on! Also have Air suspension to go in, in about a month. Will be getting GTI side skirts or something aswell soon... Have a glass stopper for the De-wiper and white interior lights on the way so should be here soon.... Father has a MK6 so convinced him to give me the Light Switch with the silver surround on it  :grin: Winning...  Should be getting the Wings, Side skirts and Back bumper done over next week or so, and the wheels on by end the week so will update then  :happy2:

The style with those choice of rims and that colour car... Pure beauty. You should be proud of your work. :happy2:

Looking good...great start. Front conversion is spot on. The rear looks off colour though (or is it just me)....

Other plans other than air..?!? Front splitter....xenons...?!?

Looking good so far, nice additions :happy2:

I'm not convinced that the paint job is the best it could be though, the colour doesn't quite match. It might be worth seeing what the paint shop say about that if that is the case.
Sorry to put a downer on it and I'm no paint expert, just thinking from a paying customer perspective.
