Just brought a Polo Breadvan as a nice easy project. 

Drove her back from Bournemouth with a grin on my face all the way.

A pair of tarts in the back is a good idea

 

But really clean and correct the paint and plastics, lower it on and 60/40 kit and alloys. You cant go to wide on the rear 5.5j i think maybe 6

Really dont, every few weeks this exact conversation takes place 

 

Keep it clean and oem+ do things that can be undone if needed, always always make the car better than when you got it

once the body work is ruined very few people will want to buy it if you decide to move on 

 

as above you see it weekly , some one buys some random wheels that wont fit , but tries anyway by bashing the arches or fitting washes to add "camber"

 

myself - id say loose the roofrack unless you actually use it , theyre played out now , good polish on the paint , replace the cam belt and overhaul the brakes so theyre A1 and go on from there , make it reliable go anywhere car and add a few touches as you go

Some back to black on all the grey plastic will do it a favour.

New number plates, remove side rub strips and get a rear wiper motor/delete. If you're going to lower it, go for a quality H&R kit. As for wheels, there are lots of nice 5.5" designs about too
