Custom Polo WRC Bumper

Post by Filip Deleu » Mon Jun 15, 2020 4:20 pm

Hey guys,

I know that custom bumpers have to be cut down and plastic welded together with a Caddy bumper. I know most use golf mk6 and 7 / 7.5 bumpers. But I was wondering if a polo bumper would work to slice it up and build one for Caddy with it. I really like the look of that WRC bumper Image

Anybody done any polo-Caddy bumper builds yet?

That’s exactly why I’m wondering! I love the look of that bumper and I want something different. But I’m not ordering one to find out it won’t work

Never seen a caddy with this bumper on. There is another caddy fitted with polo R bumper. I see no reason why it can't be done.

@Gresley, that’s what I wanted to find out. I have no idea if the polo bumper is just as wide as a golf or touran or Caddy bumper. Now that I know it could work, I would probably best delete my post before someone steals my idea

I mentioned this to a few guys years ago and nobody did it, I think it'd look great and the section in the middle where the plate mounts wouldn't have to be as tall as the likes of a mk7 converted bumper which is what I don't particularly like about them.

Well I saw this bumper last week when someone posted a pic of her Polo WRC. I was like WOW that would look so good on the Caddy... It’s something a little more exclusive than a Golf GTI or R-Line bumper.

I asked about a polo bumper a while back.
As with everything, clever or resourchful people will make anything work with enough money and time, plus skill!
I think I was told it would be too small? I found some sort of polo GTi front that looked lovely...!
If you do it, take plenty of pictures!👍👍

I looked at this a little while back dan done some mock ups for me. I felt it looked similar to a Ford so I chose the touran. But I still think it would be cool. See if this helps. Image

@Caddyluv

Oh wauw that’s awesome! Thank you so much for posting them!! It does look a little different from what I thought it would look like but I still think it looks good!

I’m still trying to make up my mind what I would get. Those R bumpers look great but as soon as you go see a fb group or forum, they all have an R bumper lol I want something more different.

But again Thank a lot for showing this! I kinda dig it

No problem. It would be good. I just wasn’t sure at the time. If I had the cash I would have done both.
