Yes dave I certainly am!! :)

Well a busy day of modding today:

- St front upper grille fitted with no problems, thanks to dave for a great guide!!
- Gel overlays fitted


Also been to south coast tints for my rear window tinting, great guys and service and only took an hour!!!

While I was there also got a quote to carbon wrap my front lip.....30+vat, so gonna have that done in a couple of weeks. ;)






Pics aren't great from my iPhone and the grey skies didn't help but I think the car looks great, gives it a completely different look, hope you all agree!! :)


Looking good! Glad the guide helped! Must mean it's fairly easy to follow!!

First you gotta degrease n sand the item, then you gotta prime, then you gotta base coat.

Then you gotta do the actual dip, so you need to get the water temp perfect cause if its too cold or too hot you'll ruin it, then you need to float the print on the water, then you need to activate it, then you need to dip the item at an angle very carefully

Next you have to rinse the item but be careful not to do it too soon or too hard or you'll wash some of the print off. Then you need to leave it to dry

then you need to give at least 5 coats of lacquer and let it harden for at least 2 days.

Then you gotta buff it up n polish it.

So yup lol theres a hell of a lot of work involved n theres that many things that can go wrong.

Then of course it really stinks, especially the activator so you'll be choking on it.

So really you need somewhere decent to do it and where you can let the item dry n harden without having it inside with the fumea choking everyone in the house.


Like i said i'm all set up to do it, just be a lot better when the snows gone at least.

I have got a load of carbon print ready, but i think i've now sourced some even better quality print that looks more like true carbon. Just waiting for my supplier to get it in for me which should be in the next week.

If you have access to a pop up Gazebo with those cloth side walls you could work on the car in any conditions.
And wiring the footwells up can be done inside the house running out for a quick trial meassure of cable length then back in to splice them togeather.
If you lived closer id install em for you and throw you an extra blanket ;)

Tints are looking sweeet!!
Didnt spot the pictures till you mentioned it, i turned back to page2 of the thread.
What percentage is on the windows and did you get the front side windows done?
The tint seems to bring the car lower and more streamline, fills the gap in body to look more whole and complete.
Are you getting the grills sprayed or fitting a TripleRcomposites front splitter?

Thanks for your comments Lenny :) the tints are 20% the same as factory fitted.

Not sure about getting the grilles sprayed or the splitter yet, the next mods the eibach springs, which will be very soon, should change the look again. ;)

I want your tinted windows mate, defo on my list of mods this year,
The eibach springs will change the appearance of the car even more low and fat.
Looking forward to getting my eibach's fitted too.

Is your Zs petrol or diesel ?
