So... My DMB overlays have been superb... Cant fault them!

However the ones i bought for my other half... AWFUL!!!

the only one that hasnt peeled off was the steering wheel one!!

I rsorted to gorilla glue and superglue in the end!

And its not like i didnt do teh same thing either.. Im convinced it has something to do with the fact i have a silver backing, and hers is white... but i obviously cant prove that without buying more!!

I have the carbon print ones on the front badge and the steering wheel,

they both had silver backing and are on the car since november 2010

i have a blue badge on the rear and it had a black backing, its been on the car since november 2011 and its perfect too mate,

so as you say it must be somthing to do with the white backing,

Little update,

Looked into the footwell lighting the other day, and to my surprise i found out that the bulb holders were already there!

Now not getting too excited, i asjed my mate for a couple of Bulbs (I was at his garage at the time) and to my amazement, after putting my free bulbs into the holders, they lit up!!

RESULT!!

guess that means i better get on with the other jobs on the list...

- Twin Reverse Light Conversion - Half Way Through........

- Colour Code Fog Surrounds

- Colour Code Bonnet Lip

- iPod integration for stereo (not sure how yet... but I'm researching!) Not iPod but MP3 USB Stick... As Good As...

- Footwell Lighting For FREE!! Result

- Twin Boot Lights

I like it, I'm about photoshop mine because i don't know whether to do my own. Im unsure about having just the TDCI badge left there to be honest, I'm one for all gone or none. It may grow on me, il look at it again in 5 minutes ha.

Hello Everyone!
