Here we have Nay Park’s super clean black on black mk5 Golf. We met up with Nay when we were down in Telford for this year’s Ultimate Dub’s show. We were chilling out on the Squared Wheels stand and Nay was parked just across from us. He popped over to have a chat and we had a peek round his car and decided we’d like to do a little feature.
What you see here is a long way from what this car used to be, this car has a little history under it’s belt. Some of the more eagle eyed readers may remember this car from the cover of Fast Car a few years back, when it was in the hands of Carl Taylor with the cream bentley’s, grill and extended bonnet. After that feature in Fast Car, it was then sold on to someone else where it was involved in an accident and needed quite abit of work to get it back road worthy. One of Nay’s friends bought the golf in need of the repairing, did the required work to get it back on the road and that was where Nay picked it up.
When he bought the golf it was road worthy, but needed quite a lot of love to get it looking like it does now. It was on coils, had the interior it still has now but the bodywork was very tatty and needed sorting to get it show worthy again.
Nay wanted to get the Mk5 as low as possible and the coilovers weren’t up to the job for him, and he decided air was the way to go. And instead of paying many thousands to a company to fit an install for him, he decided to give it a go with his friend, neither of them with any experience but got stuck in anyway. And when you look in the boot at the setup you would think it wasn’t a “on the driveway” kind of jobs. Hats off chaps.
Nay also needed some girth in his life, so a set of RH ZW3′s in 18×8.5J front, and 18×10.5J rear were fitted to get the stance nailed. He doesn’t know the offset’s on the wheels, but as they sit so perfect he’s not that fussed about them.
Interior wise Nay thought when this much has been done to it, what do you change without doing it all again. And with this not being a long term car he thought other than the air install he would leave things as they were. We don’t blame him on that one.
We’ll leave you to have a look through the rest of the pictures, and in the coming weeks expect to see lot’s of Wörthersee coverage up on here.
