Tried on the new wing

and bumper..

Not only were the brackets different for the side / wings, but the ones for the bumper to go in to the front panel were too. :(

...and some Rs mats

Next was installing puddle lamps to the new wing mirrors

bought these little LED's

252365_4879514901967_1544219345_n_zps6d7

Fitted them underneath..

Was then offered the full Rs interior

946221_10200149949487715_1724572781_n.jp

But at the same time, some Genuine Rs rear quarter panels came up... I went for those instead.

The interior will have to wait for now. :(

So, just waiting on those arriving and at the same time looking for a decent body shop to get them fitted!

I finally managed to find a local-ish coachworks to take on the work and we've settled on a price, so i'm in the process of saving up for it.. and as I expected, its not going to be cheap.

I've been very lucky with the body parts.

I'd say roughly around the 1500 mark, cheap considering the quarter panels on there own are close to £1700

I get this question all the time, taking the value i got my car at + what i've spent, its still no where near current RS prices.

Also i would have needed to get the RS on H.P, (dont have a spare 20k sitting around) which would mean i'd have spent a further few grand on top of the RS price.

& i'd still have had to pay to get it painted orange :D

I payed a lot for insurance when i was younger with the cars i had... I already have a daily work horse, this will only be used for dry weekends.
