hey guys, my friend just recently purchased a 95 gti vr6. we have been looking at doing some things to it but i am not sure how to do them. this is where you guys come in. i would really appreciate some help so here it goes:
1: currently the side markers, on the bumper, are the stock orange color. to go with the smoked out theme he is going to order smoked lenses. my question is how do you remove the lense? on my mk4 i can just push in, slide forward and they pop out. is it the same thing, i tried but didnt have much success.
2: also to go with the smoked theme, we want to replace the lights in the front from clear to smoked. how hard is it to change them? does the bumper need to be removed?
3: we both agree that the emblems would look sweet painted black. how is this procedure done? does the grill and rear symbol need to be removed or can it just be masked off?
we also are going to paint the calipers black but i know how to do that as its not very hard. i know my questions are very fundamental but i want to do it correctly. so please, if you could take a minute and describe a procedure or two to me i would really appreciate the help.

currently, the car is sporting 17in borbets, the stock 15s are pictured here.

Re: new to the mk3 world, have some quick Qs (spytation)

hey guys thanx for the replies. another question about the front fog light area though: after i 'pop' them out with a screw driver how do the new ones go in? do they just push in and snap in place? also, as far as removing the grill to get to the front emblem, where are the clips, can i just pull the grill out? does anyone have any sites which explains stuff like this and other do it yourself mods in detail?
again, thanx for the replies and keep them coming
