well i thought id finally make one,
this is my car when i first got it after the back box was fitted

then came the light brows which were removed after a while

stopped like that for a while then finally got my alloys

it stopped like this for a month or so while i was searchin for a gsi spoiler then i found one so went to collect it from a scrap yard and nearly died because they just left me to pull it down of this shelf type thing. then got its sprayed and fitted and my car looked like this up until the past week


i also brought some depo smoked lights off ebay and fitted them

so that was how the exterior looked untill the other week when i finally got some replica gsi skirts fitted along with 2lt brakes


next on the list is painting all black/grey plastic parts gloss black and lowering then its done i think possibly a plain grill.
hope you like
matt

iirc you need 2 leds for mfd, 2 for heater panel & 2/3 for dials depending on if you have rev counter, you can get them off ebay or from electronics stores.


Matt cars looks good now mate, alloys & skirts set it off a treat

looking nice mate, imo i think that the plastic parts look better in satin black rather than gloss. but each to their own.

Oh unlucky with that bash

Really liking what you have done inside. I want those dials. Are they easy to fit ? i also like the leds you put in and the dash. Really like them. Were they hard to fit ?

Good job.

he was gonna try lol but he wouldnt win at all (he pulled out of a road which had give way signs etc there and hit the side of me so theres no way he would of won) but we have decided to both pay for our own because 1 im changin insurance companies in like 2 weeks so dont want a claim goin through, and he didnt really want to go through insurance because he knew it was his fault i think)
as for the dials i brought them off rob_lee off here and all you do is take your old plasticy black things off and stick the new white ones on
