R&R= remove & replace in this case. Look at where your filler part of the window bottle is & how the fender is now & then when you go to mockup the passenger side fender, you'll see you need to cut some of the inner fender some. btw the bottle is on the drivers side of the ('00-'04) mk1's vs the the ('05-'07) mk1.5's.

How fast are you? R&R hood, fenders, headlites, griile & carve out part of the right fender for the squirter bottle & make sure the panels are squared up & fits great.

You'll also need to cut some of the inner passenger side fender for the washer jug. For the headlite connectors I'm not sure if those machs inner change w/ the oem connectors. The rest is a bolt on. I'd mock up the fenders(mod the right fender for the squirter jug) hood & add the headlites to make sure it fits great. Then tear it down & have a b/s do a cut in of the color & then install them & then have the b/s paint them & then install the svt bumper cover & headlites & grille.

Might as well get it painted. You'd need to swap out the fenders, hood, headlites & grille as you know.
