Good progress, I reckon it'd look great with the wheels in silver though :)

Thanks guys!!
I would be further ahead but missing the loom and the passenger side calliper carrier bolt is rounded off :(
The splitter should be a laugh to be honest! Tried to get it as low as possible just so the vdub boys hate it!

I didn't believe you'd actually cable tie the splitter :D
Mine is still in the boot! Speaking about Vdub boys, I managed to gate crash a Dub meet in Bolton. It was priceless. I got plenty of stares :lol:
Nice cars though. sm4

i was going to try and screw it but because its so low i though cable ties would allow a little flex before breaking
the dub boys seem to be intruged by them i went up to a meet at brands in the grey one and the car got swarmed before i got out

on another note does anyone know the best place to get the bolts for the caliper carriers on the front?

Just best taking the bolt down a hardware shop and getting a copy. Then when you use it apply some threadlock.

looks good, but the lip are so flexible its better to fasten it with some screws because it will just fall off with the cable ties :wink: I have tried :oops:
