Idea’s Needed

Post by Rk24 »

Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas what I can do to the van? i love how it is looking but not sure if there is something missing, I don’t want to spend a massive amount as it is my work van and it’s getting on in its life, but any suggestions will be great.
Anyone with the preface lift post them up :D

Rear spoiler
Alloy Wheels if ya don't mind splashing some cash. Can always take them off and put on next van if this one hasn't much life left in it.

I did think a spoiler, wheels I have only just got these banded steels 😂 I am hoping the van will last for a while yet but just mindful that there is so many things to change and upgrade on these so don’t want to fall into the trap and spend so much that I could have just got a new van.

Embrace the dark! Tinted side repeaters, tinted Mk4 rear lights, tinted 3rd brake light, and some headlights with black bezels. maybe a subtle tinted sun strip on the windscreen. And it'd look perfect on the steelies with a slight lowering.

Yeah I do like the mk4 lights, I will have to look into them, and the dark would look good.

For the best inspiration, look through the build threads section. Everything is there, From 2.0Tdi to 3.6 VR6, and more mods that you can imagine! If it’s possible, it’s on this forum. Seats, audio, body kit’s, electrical upgrades, the list is almost endless.

Yes I agree there are some amazing builds and projects, but a lot seem to be the newer shape or have been face lifted to make them look like the newer shape

Haha, I'm keeping my mk3's face unlifted too! A non lifted mk3 will be rare as anything soon.

In the 60s and 70s some people would cut out the split or oval rear window of 50s air-cooled beetles and graft in the larger rear window of the newer models. Now split and oval bugs are the most coveted models. Wonder if it'll be the same for a nice unmolested mk3 lol

That’s sunning mate, I like the arch kit, tinted side indicators, and wing mirrors so basically all of it :D tbh I have seen this in the build thread didn’t realise it was yours. You have done a amazing job on it.
