    Like the title says I have OEM VW roofrack rails that have been painted Stonehenge grey to match my old car. I'll be honest, the clear coat is not perfect, it is not chipping or fading but it could use a wet sanding to smooth it out. Visually you cannot see this but you can feel it. Other than...

    I want to plastidip mine black to give a bit of contrast against the gray headliner, but.. I'm too dumb to figure out the best way to paint them. Whatever way I have them, I can't seem to get even coverage. Anyone figured out a good way to do it?

    I have a pair of B5 wagon tails that we had custom painted colorado red to match my wifes wagon. they are darn near flawless, as we only had them on for a season, before switching to B5.5 tails. They blend in almost perfectly to the car - but on a non c-red car, Johnny Law wouldnt even notice...

    What do you guys think? I had someone paint the rims. I think they are nice, the person, came, removed the wheels, took them to his shop, and brought them back the next day. Decent for 150.00 They were primered and then painted.

    Just discovered that CLR will remove those annoying, ugly yellow stains on your alloy rims. Viva la difference!!
