Lol no I didn't mate. My boys had football today so that's where the time went.

And makes sense to do the grille and gel overlays at the same time too, will give me 10 mins in the warm mid fitting of the grille ;)

Thanks mate I'm well pleased with them gonna try and post some pics up now! :)

There are a couple of adhesive strips, but also 3 locating lugs that pop into the bonnet.
