@novakid If it’s the join on the two bumpers, they were hit stapled, plastic welded, filled and sanded. Took a lot of time and patience but well worth the effort

Sorry totally misread thatImage

If it’s that grill it’s a touran centre grill with the chrome strip, but I had it sprayed gloss black and the strip and behind the badge sprayed red

Ahh right I’m with you now, there’s that many.

You can buy it from vw for £240ish or there are cheaper copies on eBay

I decided to go with a cheaper one as at the time couldn’t justify spending another chunk of change at the time

Took advantage of an early finish last night, trip to a breakers for a panel but they didn’t have one, but I couldn’t help myself and came away with a set of front hubs.

Also washed and quick detailed it

Hopefully give it a polish over the weekend

Today I picked up a few parts from the painters and also picked my spare steel wheel up from the powder coaters

Just got to clean and seal it, can’t be putting a rusty wheel in the van Image

Had a bit of a productive afternoon, installed the sunlight sensor and got the last metal support out to expose the rear footwells.

Was left with this bracket

Does this need cutting down?

Not had much time to do much lately other than to keep it clean

Image

Also last week got this parcel in the post

Image

So that’ll be my little project over the next couple of weeks
