    Hej guys...

    About my project:

    It all started in 2004 when I bought my 1.8 20v at the dealer!

    As the car was in 2004
    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 001

    Some Pictures from the good old days tongue

    Taken on the day I bought the car at the VW dealership.
    I was so damn proud, I went from a Golf mk2 1.6 Diesel (1986) to a Golf mk4 1.8 20v (1999)!!!

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 074
    (sold)

    As the car was in 2005:

    In 2005 the car was completely resprayed in a custom colour!
    Fitted a chrome Koni Coilover set (stiffness and height adjustable)
    Then finally got me some rims Razz Porsche Turbo's!

    The theme of 2005 seemed to be my car being at the bodyshop...
    Lets just say it had some problems with the paint, in 2005 it has been painted 6 times by different bodyshops, the 6th time it finally worked out!!
    The dealership made sure the first 5 times were screwed up by n00bs then I had a few meetings with a few people from Volkswagen Netherlands and they took care of my problem and had it send to the best bodyshop it could go to, and completely redid my car!!
    I was SOOO happy after all that time my problems would be solved Laughing


    The way it looked for a very long time in 2005...

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags WEEK%2026%20066

    We changed it to a custom colour! It's lighter than the original colour...

    This was the final look for 2005, not spectacular but still I liked it!

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 002


    *****2006*****

    For 2006 I wanted to go into the next stage of the project make it a bit more interesting!

    Worked from august 2005 untill Mai 2006 on polishing my Porsche Turbo wheels Laughing fitted some 215/35/18 tyres!

    Had Bob from BSS airride systems install a customized Koni/BSS Airride install!

    Had the bumpstrips and doorhandles painted, fitted USA GTI Rear lights, and a complete aluminum R32 trim for the interior (shifter included)

    These pictures were taken at the Dutch MIVW 2006 meeting!
    The first meeting I attented with the car in it's new form...

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 019

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 021

    Interior/Airride install:

    I had Bob customize the front struts for that extra inch of drop Shocked Very Happy

    This is My airride configuration:

    4 Specifically by BSS/Koni developed airride system which are adjustable in firmness from under the hood.
    The air tank is 10 Liter (more wouldn't fit in the box i've made :banghead: )
    4 BSS airbags
    25 Meters of airhoses in 8 mm

    4 Elektromagnets of 600 liter per minute

    Air cooled VIAIR 70l/minute compressor
    adjustable pressurevalves, 2 gauges, switches and a Remote control that functions over 200 / 300 meters distance :eek:
    :laugh:

    About the Box I made, i've made it from 19mm MDF wood ( don't know what is called in english)

    I've made it soundproof by sticking a vibraflex damping mat...
    It contains a bit of lead and is heatproof.

    This is the woodenbox that exactly fits in the spare tyreroom....

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags Photoshop-020

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags Photoshop-021

    On top of that came a plate of the same material MDF (because I wanted to have the same density throughout the whole box...
    I've also made this soundproof by fitting the same Vibraflex mats!

    Screwed the whole thing together and fitted it in my car, the plate rests on rubber so the noise won't sound through the whole body of my car....

    Gauge/switch panel:
    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 001


    This is how it looks at the moment, I've made a top cover and put some nice carpet on it, underneath this plate is still some room to fit a DLS or autobahn amplifier Razz
    I fitted the lid with a piano hinge so everything feels really solid!
    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 002

    This way of fitting the top cover I've only lost 2 inches of trunk room (it's still a daily you know :wink: )
    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 007

    Current install:
    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 006

    EDIT: I forgot to mention, the complete box with airride weighs allmost the same as my 18 inch spare rim I had in there before the air... Razz

    Other interior pictures:

    TT pedals and footrest (should get me some new carpets...)

    Overview:
    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 008

    Also fitted an original (new) armrest in the front and this winter I am trying to get me some leather Recaro's or R32 seats!

    I am going to get all electrical this winter! :laugh: I'm going to fit Original Cruisecontrol, W8 lights, bora airboxes (don't know the correct name), propably a MFA, a MFD, and hopefully I'll be able to fit original VW Electric windows and mirrors!
    tongue

    Wheels:

    As said before I polished the porsches on my own (with the help of my girlfriend, she's also a complete vw nut Cool )

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags DSC01124


    Remember I did the polishing myself!

    The second rim from the left is like they where before after taking off the paint with a chemical pealing!

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags DSC01080

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags DSC01084

    My dad allmost killed me for making the house dirty for the past 9,5 months Laughing
    (silver aluminum powder on all the door handles)

    hahaha Laughing

    Next year I want to have the porsche wheels "hochglans verdichtet" the quality of the shine should be between polishing and chrome.
    That way it doesn't have that fake shine of chrome they then should be better protected against dirt and the weather :rolleyes:

    Other mods:
    The Remus exhaust really had to go, it didn't fit properly and after a year I was so sick of it so I decided to refit the original exhaust!

    When I installed the Remus exhaust I had to cut a whole piece out of the rear spoilerlip, so I ordered a new original piece at the dealer!

    And to do it the right way I've also ordered all the brackets and bolts for the original exhaust because the rubbers were worn and the brackets and bolts were rusted.

    Offcourse I just couldn't resist, since I had a new rear-spoilerlip and the old front-spoiler was really really really scratched, so I had to order a new one!

    a Few weeks ago the organisation of a German Golf mk4 meeting invited me to be in the showroom of the local VW Dealership. and I can tell you this... It was a GREAT weekend!! The hotelbar was fantastic and all the people were really nice... Very Happy

    On our way to the meeting my gastank cover broke because I was driving to low @ the Deutsche Autobahn @ 160km/h Laughing
    Had to take it off though!! ( so nice when you have airride )

    My mk4 1.8 20v on bags 000

    In the evening we had to tryout the hotelbar, and had a lot of fun!

    This is the final look untill now (date 29-08-06). At the German meeting I bought a set of Original VW Valeo Jubi (20th) headlights, and decided to fit them while being in the showroom haha Razz

    I hope it's low enough for you guys Laughing

    I know Sarah, I know Very Happy hahaha
