Looking good!
 
Almost ready for the show

Thanks Foca,
Looking forward to it, and the begining of my modification holiday until november.
Here is a preview of the graphite grey stripes to match the rear diffuser colour.

Not tempted to fit them yourself mate??

If you were closer I'd come do it for you... One of my various beer money jobs in the past was a vinyl fitter! Lol

Sadly never got to do full wrapping as that's where the money's at!

Thanks Dave,
I'll pay for you to get the ferry to rosslare where I'll collect you and supply you with drink lol
Its too much risk for me, so close to fordfair,
Took almost 2 weeks to arrive from DMB due to bank holiday weekend etc.
So if I was to mess it up, then I haven't got leed time to get a replacement in time for 02nd June
I'm prepared to pay enough beer vouchers to get you mouldey ;) just to see it rite.

The guy who fitted the tint www.atint.ie
Has a brother-in-law who owns a company that does car wrapping, vans, trucks, shop fronts, signs etc.
So I'll phone them today,
The job I require them to do is small compared to what they do on day to day but they are very experienced.

Update:

QR Code decals arrived today from funky Monkey Creations.
Email: sales@funkymonkeycreations.co.uk

I've used RedLaser App to check it and works perfectly,
They supplied one in black&white for the front window
And
One in white for the rear window, as the tint will be the black sections ;)
This will link people who scan; to this build thread

Thanks guy's
Took daves advice and showed the missus a few YouTube videos on stripe fitting,
Then we give it a go.
Passenger side rear door didn't line up for me 100% so I'll order another passenger side strip but the rest was lucky and went on 100% I'm absolutly delighted with the results.

As you can see the rear door stripe is off a bit off but I'll replace it soon.

Well done lenny!

 

Code works brilliantly, and the vinyl looks good!

 

You tried gently heating with a hairdryer to gently pull it off? Of course if your not comfortable with it then dont as you could stretch the vinyl!

 

To be fair it sounds like your doing the right thing by reordering the vinyl.
