At last, I've managed to get some pics of my new front end.

I gave it a full clean as the paintwork felt a bit rough after being in for spraying. The car was fully clayed then x4 coats of Werkstat Acrylic.

Here's it sitting in the garage after the clean.

While it was in getting sprayed I also got the rear drums sprayed black as they were covered in rust.

Also the wee bits of inner arch in front of the rear wheels were starting to look a bit tatty so got them sprayed black instead of the normal white.

I'm glad the front splitter clears the speed ramps outside the house ................... just, haha!!

When I say the front end's finished, that's not quite right as I had ordered some black projector headlights exactly the same as Rob H's however they pulled them all that week for failing MOT's.

Here's hoping they get the problem sorted and get them back in stock again, supposedly a 6 month wait however.

Also getting a tinted sunstrip fitted, hopefully next week, then my car will be completely finished ...................... I think!!

Brush painting just as good mate ! Halfords do high temp paint for about 5 and lasted me for my last 3 cars so personally paint them with brush :-)

This is why I'm VERY hesitant to put Eibachs on my MK7 Titanium, the speed-humps round Glasgow and Hamilton nearly wrecked my 03 Focus Zetec and that was only factory lowered and I took them slowly and at all sorts of angles to find the best one.

Yes brush painting will be fine, I just took the opportunity when it was in getting bits sprayed anyway to get the rear drums sprayed. ;)

Did think about getting the roof painted gloss black as well but would've just put the cost up more. Not sure about wrapping, would rather have it painted.
