    Ok, So I had this idea that I haven't really seen done so far. Instead of painting all of the lowers to color-match, I decided to see what it would look like if I just did the area around the center-front grille... gives it a bit of a b6/audi look. What do you guys think? Anyone ever seen...

    Pics will be up shortly. Decided to keep the shaved valve cover and coils! B5 armrest cupholder. Had it in my car for months and hardly used it because I rarely drink anything in my car. A lot more convenient than the in dash cupholder. 15 Thanks for lookin!

    I have been thinking about painting my stock alloy rims on my 2001 passat black. The windows are tinted and think it would go well with the silver and black. Does anyone have a picture of painted stock rims? And any input would be appreciated :)

    I have a stupid long build-thread.... around 4 years, involving, but not limited to: a college degree, jailtime, rescue dogs, countless moves/jobs ....and its still not done, but I figured I'd share my Friday the 13th creation without all the extra pages: Round one done.

    I thought I would share some under-hood photos with my newly-painted valve cover. I used beige Duplicolor Engine Enamel. Up next is the intake manifold! UPDATE: I painted the intake manifold and throttle body this weekend. Any other good suggestions for cleaning up the bay?

    How many hours should a shop charge to prep and paint the lowers on a B5.5? Can the paint hold up on the flexible door skirts without backing them with glass? Anyone done this in Northern Virginia/Maryland? I have a black GLX, so I could just dye and condition them. However since I will likely...

    This is just a feeler for now, I'm still on the fence on what I want to do. The rear diffuser is not painted, everything else is. I have a 4mo, and my dual exhaust was presenting some issues, so I wasn't going to use it. Paint was done professionally while I was having some work done on my...

    So this weekend I tackled installing my new color-matched door lowers. I already had the hi-def side skirts so I thought this would be the perfect finishing touch. I also *thought* it would be about an hour project, two hours tops. Long story short: it sucked. Big time. I ordered new door...
