yeh where the lights bolt in the bolt holes are in a different place, and i think the metal under the lights is different so that will need changing :)

Got 2 bulb holders, the multiplugs and some wiring...... just a case of matching some wires I hope. Get an auto electrician I know to do that....... sparks (inside the car! :O ) in ya rear view mirror ain't good X(

Also got the tailgate! Got glass and the loom has been left through it 8)

Only a tiny bit of rust on the bottom corner of the tailgate, outside too...... inside is totally clean :)

Just hope it fits now! :roll:

Trial fitting.... went fairly well! :)

Posted Image

^No gaps on the far side, it's all very tight :eek: :))

^Bit of a gap at the bottom, and the metal piece underneath doesn't come out as far as the clusters.



Posted Image

^2 new holes need drilling.

Posted Image

Need to cut out some metal!

Overall, it could be worse :thumb:

Is there a mk5 owner that could take a pic with their light cluster out? Drivers side preferably. Just so I can see the arrangement of the metal work. Would be mint if that were possible :)

Finesse can you use a Mig welder? Cut the underlight bits off a Mk5 and just Mig weld them on. Would take approx 5 mins to do lol.
