Howdy, just some old VWs here

Post by rocco on January 6th 2008, 11:08 pm

For a long time, I had wondered about cheap paint. I knew maaco was crap, but didn't want to pay thousands to have some nice paint; I could throw thousands into my engine and suspension instead. But I didn't quite like the idea of driving around a rattle can black car. Then I came across the $50 paintjob stuff. So, I'm planning on doing it to a 1988 Volkswagen Scirocco 16v I picked up. I also have an '82 vw rabbit diesel, but the paint is still in decent shape after 219k miles, and I absolutely love the color of the rabbit.

Anyway, pics of the rocco. Looks bad, if you look at the hood, you can see where I was testing out rolling on paint. Laughing In red. I'm going to go with silver, if the metallic part doesn't give problems (other post to come regarding that). The body kit (came stock on it, was one of the features of the US 16 valve sciroccos, the 8v sciroccos did not have the kit) will be painted semi gloss black, it looks pretty cool in black, IMO. If the metallic silver doesn't work out, it'll be dark green.

Oh, one of my baby, the rabbit-

Interesting how this forum cuts down images if they are too large.

welcome Hope you enjoy the forums. I'm a sucker for VW's by the way. Had a 67' beetle that I sold last year.
