Hi

This car just keeps looking better & better.

What colour blue is that Golf? Paint code & car model would be helpful.

Steve, it's supposed to be Jazz Blue, VW paint code LW5Z, but as you can see my wheels don't look the same as the golf. I can only figure that the finish must be different, under the lighting conditions it looks ALOT different, or those added to some photoshop coloration. The color is pretty chamelion, but I've not seen that glow that the golf in the picture has, and what I wanted. I had bought my wife a purse that is the color I wanted and the color of the golf, but they couldn't duplicate it, the color would have to be custom built and could not just be mixed from existing colors apparently.

Santa Cruz is looking good with all the road shows you've been showing, I'll have to see if a cruise that way is in the cards. If not, your always welcomed back up here!

More pics already taken just not loaded up yet, so stay tuned. The front end is turning out really well.

Hi

I thought your camera didn't catch the colour properly.

I keep changing my mind about what colour to paint my car.

When I fancy a colour I get some paint mixed up and paint an engine lid to see if I can live with that colour.

So far I have painted engine lids, black, orange, Apple green, silver, purple and now I will try to find a colour like the one on the Golf.

Steve

Hi

I just realized that Phat73VW bug is painted Jazz blue.

Is Jazz blue a metallic?

There are 2 VW Jazz Blues, one was on a 90's golf, but lacked the pearlescent component, and the one I have is the 20th Anniversary Edition Golf 1.8t color in which they added the pearl effect. I think Phat73s will probably be the same as my wheels.

Car does look bonkers! Well done indeed.
I had a Jazz blue Golf4 and was always under the impression that a nineties 911 Cup and the first Audi A4 RS Avants (with the cup1 wheels) had the same colour option.

I think you're right, while searching for the color code I read a few comments on the Audis as well.

Another shot, I keep waiting till sundown so I get this golden color and the wheels look dark, but I'll get some sunny ones soon.



Just some random shots as it comes together, unfortunately it also has to come apart as I found that there was some stain coming through on the paint so fenders need to be repainted!!!

Thanks man, I have access so I think I'm going to put some nyloc SS nuts on the inside, then put some epoxy over them to lock them onto the door skin and not have to deal with getting back to hold them later. Clean the surface up and grease the bolt should allow for the bolt to come out of the epoxy but the nut to stayed glued to the inside of the door. Thanks for the insight and suggestions guys, it will save me trouble down the road.
