Nice work. Too bad you weren't closer, our CL has a few silver cars being wrecked. I don't have any reflex silver fenders left.

I screwed up earlier - there was one about 45 minutes from me and I figured I could wait until the weekend and pick it up. It was sold the next day. Fortunately, I'm not in any rush - I knew I couldn't have the hood shipped, but I fender wouldn't be too bad I suppose.

Worst case - I'll paint one. The roof has some rust from stone chips (no where near as bad as the hood) so I may respray it. Easy enough to paint a fender while I'm at it. I have 2 other friends with reflex silver cars so it might be worth buying some paint.

Found a reflex silver hood over the weekend...
Before (what happens when you don't touch up stone chips for 300k miles):

After:


Can't beat $95 for a hood!

Nice work. How did get rid of the rust? Any special treatments? I would still like to salvage my right side fender, but not having any luck with the rust. Not eligible for any warranty since I painted it once or twice already.

I chucked the old hood and put on a nice used one Found someone on the vortex about 25 miles from me with one for $95

It wasn't worth messing with the rust. Fenders run in the $80 range and are not too hard to find.

There is some rust on the leading edge of the roof - that I will need to address. I'll sand/treat/paint it. To avoid blending, I might do the whole roof.

Sold my GTI... Registered the wagon to work out any bugs while I'm bringing it back. All 4 rear plate screws broke off when I removed the previous owners plates (he bought it new and the plates were never removed). Looks like they are nutserts of some sort but I was able to drill them out and retap. Lots of antiseize and I should be in good shape.

Still trying to locate a silver fender - found several people on other forums and craigslist with them for sale, but only partial or no responses. You'd think you'd put a little more effort into trying to sell something?

Not going to be a lot of work getting done on it for a while with everything else I have going on though (unless I find a fender).

Which fender-left or right? I might have a reflex silver one but I do have some 2000 ones, as you know, the colour is slightly off.

Left - drivers side. The car is old enough that I'm not worried about making it perfect - I just don't want rust. Pity - the original owner could have easily had it covered under the rust warranty. I found 3 listed at salvage yards each roughly an hour from me - the best condition one is pinstriped. Have to call to see if it's vinyl instead of paint.

I appreciate the offer - I would guess shipping would be a bit high?

Time for a vacation in Florida, there are 3 different year MkIV Silver Jettas in my local u-pull-n-pay. They charge ~$50 per fender. For bulky items, check rates using the bus lines. One of the boating forums I used to frequent used "under the bus" shipping frequently for larger lightweight items that common carriers charge dearly for.

If I wasn't already running a rather full load on my trailer to Maine this summer, I'd offer fender delivery in return for a tank of #2. Do you cut the sealant attachment between the fender and the body with a wire?

I pull them off and carefully pry at that area with the sealer.
