Hi,

hi mate! wats up with the rear bumper? colour faded? cracks, dents? or all of the above? lol cheers!:D
My original bumper was a three piece and the middle bit was damaged. I went to Langford’s and got a one piece but it has a few scrapes and I think one screw hole in it. Plan is to fix it somehow :confused: and put it on me Velle.

Hi guys,
i moved to hamworthy in may from birmingham and have just brought a T4.
Its a 1.9 td but needs abit of work for the Mot. It only cost me £500.




The dashboard did look like this but i had to rip it all off.


looks like this underneath but there is dry glue everywhere.


There is a problem with the gears when changing from 4th to 3rd, you have to keep ur foot on the clutch and go into 2nd then 3rd. also needs a back box.

Sprayer

Can anyone recommend the services of a good sprayer for some minor touching up and also colour coding of the bumpers and mirrors?
always best to go with a recommendation rather than jumping in blind!
