rim tape is shit cheap, just take it off, as u havent seen what it will look like yet, my money is on it will look ten times better, rim tape stands out way to much, without i think they will just blend int with arches, try it

Lots of comments! Cheers all lol

Cleaned her today. So just a few pics to show you all without the tape holding them on lol









Got the gf to do a little pose, but said she wont do anymore cause she felt like a scruff in her comfy clothes



Running out of ideas for mods now appart from a bigger engine, which is all it really does need! So maybe in the near future!

Cheers

Thats nice, very nice in fact! But the wheels are letting it down for me , although there nice wheels, they look tiny in the pics. Would look much better with 16s I think.

All in all you've done a craicing job

It's the rim tape that makes them look smaller mate. They look OK in reality I think. May remove it yet though. Thinking the same myself.

Mk4_boy:

It's the rear that needs lowering to make it look level lol. The skirts go lower towards the front so it looks like it has front rake now. The sill was level before the skirts went on. The front cannot go any lower whatsoever anyway. The manifold is like 1.5" from the floor, catches everywhere as it is.

Smoked side reps, maybe, but they would have to be mk4 astra smoked ones now, don't like the oval ones anymore.

Cba with semi smooth boot, too much hassle for what it's worth IMO, and I have thought about removing the sport badges, but I don't think I'm gonna tbh, gotta keep something original lmao!

Kev, I'd love to have speedlines on it but they just don't fit my car for some gay reason lol, been there, tried that and proved my car isn't compatible haha.

Someone can photoshop it without rim tape if they want, but its like 10 a roll if I take it off and don't like it without!

Cheers lads!

Erm, what is higher res? lmao. If i go on tinypic i get an option of

640x480. (which I use.)
800x600
1024x768.

If I convert one to 1024x768 would that be high res enough? Or I could send it as an attatchment via email?

Dunno much about this shiz lol
