|Great car, but spend a little extra on a GL or GTI, you will really want the extra power on highways! Great car, but spend a little extra on a GL or GTI, you will really want the extra power on highways!|

|VW GOLF CL 96 1.8 8V 90Hp Canadian specs. I have this car since new and after 215000 Km, I must say it is very well built and runs great. The Volkswagen Golf Mk3 1.8 CL offers exceptional build quality, a comfortable ride and a large boot. It is a little underpowered.|

JOEY MOD - Mk3 golf

Been looking for smoked e-codes for ages & finally found a site that stocks them. Got a bit of a shock when I saw the price across the Joey mod. It looked pretty champion so I decided to give it a go. This is the way I did mine but feel free to deviate. Here are some of the materials I used: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8) 9) Set of headlights A can of black high heat spray paint Small and large paint brush Clear silicone sealant Masking tape Tinfoil Butter knife Ear buds & Nail polish remover Flat Screwdriver
searched the tex and came

Lets get started: Step 1: Removing the front glass lens from the headlight. Remove the 4 metal clips securing the glass to the headlight backing using a flat screwdriver. Preheat the oven to 100 degrees Celsius. Once ready, pop the first headlight into the oven (yes the oven ) for around seconds. This is totally safe and will cause the sealant to soften. Using a butter knife pry the glass away from the plastic backing. It should pull apart relatively easily.

Step 2: Prepping for paint Using masking tape, mask off the edges you want the paint to go. You only want to be painting the rough chrome parts; the smooth parts reflect the light and should be left alone. Take note: The chrome reflective paint peels off rather easily so work cautiously. To combat the tape pulling off the chrome paint, stick the tape to your shirt a few times to remove most of the stickiness. This is a highly important step, the tape should barely stick.

Step 3: Paint Spray some black high heat paint into a cup with a tinfoil surround. Using the big & small paintbrushes give the light a few coats of paint until nice and even. Take note: We noticed when painting close to the masking tape that the paint tended to get absorbed into the tape and run up into areas of the light we didnt want painted. It was decided a vinyl type tape could possibly be a better option in preventing this. This wasnt really an issue refer to step 4.

Step 4: Remove tape & cleanup edges
Page 7 of 17
Take care when removing the tape. Touchup any parts you might have missed. Using an ear bud dipped in nail polish remover clean up any bad edges. Take note: The nail polish remover works a treat but if kept on the surface too long it will eat into that precious chrome paint, therefore use as little as possible and clean it up shortly after with a soft damp cloth or kitchen paper. Step 5: Refitting the glass Re-silicone each light unit, fit glass and refit the metal clips. You are done!!!
Stand back and give yourself a pat on the back and admire your handy work. Smoked e-codes WTF!!! Not too sure but im thinking this is the first mk3 joey mod performed on South African soil. Bigups to Joey for making this mod possible! Some car punt pics

probably because the oem ones have been exposed to the elements and have been on the car for a number of years, the aftermarket ones have silicone that is relatively new, and unexposed to any sort of weather. the north american headlights have these nipples on them, which ruin the headlights imo.
