    For the rust on the hatch you should wire wheel all the rust away, then cover it in POR-15. Sand the POR-15, then whatever the POR-15 didn't fill get with skim coat. That's what I did for my MK2.

    So, car was sent off for paint last weekend. It was suppose to be back this weekend but more damage has been found.. so next week it is(hopefully). Its gonna be tight for Close To Home but im confident that itll make it.

    So, while im sitting around with no car i took the horribly colour matched sideskirts, sanded them down and textured them. Did the grille too, but no pic.






    Also.. finally finished my wheels Pretty pumped about these.

    SIGH... So... got my car back today and its totally... not... Ginster Yellow.



    Im.. speechless right now, its getting repainted in hopefully Ginster Yellow, for no cost.. but im just so baffled as to what went wrong in the process... Hopefully Evan can chime in....

    So, with that, this car will not be making it to CloseToHome.. which sucks cause I busted my ass finishing up everything else in the last month. Definitely not a happy camper, but ill see you all on Sunday... will be accepting free hugs..

    So the cars at the painters again to fix the issues... untill then i shall be patiently awaiting the return of my bowl of Dijon mustard.

    That guy said he used the right code, but I was with Jason dealing with that guy the entire time, the sketchiest guy I've ever met, don't ever trust a guy called Roger from southeast calgary. This guy has no work ethnic what so ever, he said bondoing the newly welded in panel was not stated so he painted over warped metal without any filling. Also, his son does not know how to do math, using a calculator he was able to get $1900,$1800 from $800+$900, either way he is a rip off, his son is a rip off, his whole family is a rip off.

    Also, his excuse for spraying the wrong color was "nobody is paying me to send photos", well nobody will pay you to sand down that mk3 and repaint it, he is retarded.

    The color is ginster dough undercooked effect.

    We hope he does, unless we see running marks on it after and he will claim "you did not tell me to sand it".

    If he is, I'm betting minimal prep will be done and most of the paint will start to peel after a short period.
