Hi All,

Picked my car up from the bodyshop this morning. I've had the following done:

> Colour Coded Arches & Rear Bumper
> Colour Coded Bump Strips
> Re-Sprayed Mirrors
> Re-Sprayed All Door Handles
> Fitted & Sprayed GSI Side Skirts
>Fitted, Sprayed & Wired Irmscher Air Dam

The skirts don't catch on the rear doors, but have had to be rivited and bonded on as they weren't a perfect fit when it came to mounting them.

The Air Dam is a little low on the passenger side (can see under light cluster slightly) but looks great. Fogs fitted in okay and are wired up to come on only when main beam or side lights are on.

The washer bottle did get in the way on the passenger side but the drivers side air con pipes weren't a problem - part of the fog mounting bracked has been cut away to allow room. May take car back to get bumper striaghtened out but its okay as it is - just not perfect.

All the sanding, fitting etc took 4 days in total, cost me 350 in the end.

Dead happy with it - what do you think? Comments and questions welcome. Will post pics of it in the sun up soon too!







Used 2-pac paint so its rock solid and its an excellent colour match - just gotta wash it properly and polish it up for the better pics.

Thanks for the comments guys - keep them coming - the more the merrier!

I thought about a vented wing - buying a replacement wing and cutting a custom style vent - but decided as the wing it double panelled - ie between the outside air and the induction kit (which would also be fitted) there would be little to no point.

Next on my list is a Remus back-box. Was dead happy how the GSI skirts match the Air Dam at the front on depth and then rise gently to match the rear bumper at the back

I thought about smoking the lights and side repeaters but like the light colour on the dark blue paint as a contrast (and similar colour to the wheels).

Just gotta give it a good waash and wax now!

Not quite sure what my battery's throwing out - but can look into it for you.

Not yet done the whole Fogs + Lights + Stereo + Electric Windows thing yet - but currently my lights dim a little when I open a window or eject a CD - but Im not too worried about this.

Really Kris? Theres a gap below the headlight I don't like and you can see a little metal strip through the gap on the side between the headlight and the wing on the bumper - Im masking up the bumper tomorrow and painting the metal visible inside with a touch up pen lol!

I supplied my uncle at the 'shop with my Haynes Manual - 20 and well worth it - use it all the time - would recomend ANYONE who mods their car gets one. Fuses, wiring, cable colours all explained.

Was told the fog wiring that came with the bumper was a little short too - and its wired direct to the battery too - think thats ok though. the relay and fuse (standard fuse was 10a which wasn't enough) is not in the car though - think its under the bonnet?? not checked wiring out yet.

Any idea what the power drain will be with Fogs on? Hope its ok. May buy a volt-meter thing for the dash

Kris - snap with the cars mate - you beat me to it but I've always wanted to do it. Should get them side by side one day lol

Just to show you - the fog lights ain't half bright!



Weird thing is - the new fog light switch I put in that came with the bumper has a little rectangular green light that comes on when the fogs are on...

the rear fog light switch (which was in when I got the car from factory) also has a recangular light, but this never lights up when the fog lights are on - does anyone elses??
