As always top work mate, looks like a great job.

I do love the grey beast though, such an awesome bit of kit :D

Well had a good day on car today got quite a bit done, really good getting parts back on the car. Decided to paint no plate surround too, very pleased with results. Painted window surrounds too. Even made a tool to refit the windscreen trim. Using what i had to hand :lol: Fitted my delocked (Rear Door) handle to passenger side aswell.

Looking good, Did you spray the bumpers to get them like that? if so what did you use? What are your plans suspension wise? im guessing its gonna be good.

Keep up the sweet work

Sounds cool, much fabrication needed?, what are the gas tech dampeners like and how hard are they to get?

More work done, have tried something different with the bonnet. I really like it. All window trim is now black and exhaust is finally finished.

That's some impressive work there Adam! I really like the bonnet too, black bonnets always seem to work well on white cars and that one looks very tidy. What are you going to do with the grill?

two tone bonnets a win dude. Absolutley ska-tastic.
You not totally tempted to mirror the effect on the roof too?
Would carry well to the number plate panel.

Then again, it's not my car. :lol:
Keep the updates comin man.
Amazing work as always.
