Just got my MK2 and have been thinking of all the little mods to do first.

I like the idea of the head light mod where the chrome insert is painted black... I was hoping people could post up any pictures of theirs that have had the mod done.

A long shot would be a Silver MK2 with the Mod!


Thanks.

That's what mine are. High temp black metallic
That was going to be my next question!

Best type of paint to use?

Doesn't need to be high temp on a mk2 but is a must on a mk2.5 because the projector headlight acts as a magnifying glass on sunny days and will blister the paint. Just to be thorough I'd use high temp anyway.

I'd never actually even taken the temperature into account. I just saw I had some paint in the garge so decided to give it a go.
Very satisfying job to complete,and my fave mod I've done inside or out on my car.
Keep temp very low in oven, if it takes a little longer it doesn't matter - better than melting your lights!

Clear side reflectors and mk2.5 rear lights make a big difference too-
