phaeton update

Last weekends little project was to make some spare wishbones we had adjustable.…

Back end

Posted on April 12, 2013 at 18:49 1 Comment

Ive been doing loads of work on my S3 Phaeton project over the last few months and am now starting to think about bodywork.

I love the front with the ground scraping spoiler, but I'm less enamoured of the rear, even thouhg I've now got a bumper for it.

Any suggestions or good pictures for rear end styling?
