Gents or Ladies

Can I be given advice please on the original finish/colour on an early Golf Mk3 GTI for the undersills ? I have seen plastic finishers along the full length of the sill on slightly later cars but need to know if the original finish on these earlier cars was ?

1. Body colour (like my daughters CL)
2. Black .........stonechip?
3. Should it have finishers?

Advice appreciated please

It should have the covers or "side member extensions" as VW call them.

Thank you for your advice

The car I have has had welding done on the sills so the "side members" may have been left off after that work was carried out. I guess like most plastic too there is some deterioration over the passage of time which makes it brittle.

I will see if I can pick some up off E bay unless anyone has any spares? It would be nice to get the vehicle back to how it was originally. This car is very original otherwise. I like to unmodify vehicles rather that the other way round. probably its an age thing !
