    Standard bumper with sommthed no plate recess pics?

    I was washing the car today and the pressure washer pulled my front plate off and it might look ok if the recess was filled so I was wondering if anyone had a pic of the standard mk4 hatch front bumeper with the numberplate bit smoothed in
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    I like that one. If i do mine the line is gonna be left in and the bits where the fogs go left in but the middle slats cut out and a massive front mount behind it
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    Just having mine done at the bodyshop now. They have commented on how much of a paint it was to get right though and said they wouldnt ever do it again!

    Not sure tbh as i just had a quote for all work carried out n said yes. I expect that is a nice chunk of my budget though.
