Might sound like a stupid question but I myself and I have heard of other people of having problems with the light setting on the morrettes when going for the MOT if you have not lined them up propperly before smoothing them in they will fail sorry to point it out if u have already done it but it caused me a lot of sh!t when I went for my MOT cheers mate car looks a treat by the way

2 guys i know fitted the kit with me which saved me 0000's at a bodyshop and have probably done a better job for less, i know what u mean about the MOT but i will just have to see how they are after lol you can adjust them but i had a look today and managed to move them about quite a bit to al bodge them for the MOT haha

how did the roof react to the welding? i want to smooth out roof rails but scared of the roof warping with the heat of the welder. ive done bonnet and pass door and left a load of time between welds and they still warped slightly. dont wanna take a chance coz dont fancy fitting a roof skin...

It wasnt too bad mate, its got an after market sun roof in so only slightly warped on edges of that but we put it back in to see how it was and it was fine, just tacked the metal in every couple of cm's but its fine especially when fibre glass and filler is added lol, cant tell at all, just try it see how it goes, worth it if it goes well
