Now i found right place to post this
It has been six years since i had Passat b5.5, and the time after that, with the exception of a couple of months of Alfa Romeo madness, has consisted of the Audis.
Now i am going to read engineer papers and it would take between 4-5 yeas so i had to downshift my life littlebit because Audi was too expensive.
Jump from the Audi’s driver seat to Passat was little shock There was no electrical boosted steering and the interior is old looking and very dirty, also rust in every fenders and trunk.
I got the feeling something have to do for this car, i can not drive this like that.
The price what i paid of this Passat was very low, because its condition. It has been over ten years with same owner which was farmer. He did not care look of the car.

First job was repair all rust and it included removin all doors, fenders, bumpers, rear trunk etc. Front wings were so bad condiotion i had to buy new ones. They came from Poland, taiwan parts but fitment is great. Painted them over with 2K epoxy paint, so it protect the metal better now.
Updated color littlebit.
Rear doors are new, and i take tinted glass of olders so do not care of paint dust Have to watersand the whole car with 2000 grit and then 3000/5000 Trizact. After sanding, polishing to perfect. I sprayed to much clear coat, so get nice smooth perfect paint surface.
Before installing paintd parts have to clean all places great and let them dry few days. Then have to spray Dinitrol ML and 4941 corrosion protection film. Also rear axle have to remove, sand blast and paint. And car underbody under axle have to procet form corrosion. Lot of a job. But i am doing this to myself.
