Still need to PlastiDip fog light bezels and buff out the clear on the tails. Work in progress. Little dirty and lots of bug matter, needs a wash, but waiting for paint to cure.






How do you prep the chrome window and grill trim? Any particular color of plastidip? How long does the plastidip last?

Do you have your plotter yet? When you get these ready put me down for a set, I hate the chrome beltline, just doesn't go with the car. Chrome is for vintage and old farts' cars....

Do you have a template that he used for cutting out the rear valence to recess the tip? I would be interested in getting a copy.

That's a normal 2.0 L GDI engine, so I'd say its for the regular non ST MK3.

The OP has an SE, not a Ti, but the engine is the same.

I contacted Steeda to see if the ST unit would work on the Ti, but they of course said it wouldn't. I don't see why it wouldn't though. Anyone try it?
