Nice one jeebo

I aint done much really, just the odd cheap stuff

I've got me next big mod in the pipeline which I will hopefully get out the way next week n then I've just got a last few little touches to get out the way which I think will be as far as I wanna go with the build

got a few little mods out the way, fitted some universal mud flaps, they was a bit long though n needed a chunk hacking off the front flaps cause they was sitting to low and couldnt reverse out the drive without em scraping

 

 

 

 

 

 

i've also sprayed the front fog surrounds in gloss black and flyeyed the front fog units themselves. will also be doing the rear fog surrounds in gloss black too

 

 

 

i personally think it improves the front making it look more stealthy n making the most of the horrible front bumper as much as i can. i really dont like that the standard mk2 front bumper doesnt have a proper lower grill like the 2.5

 

just need to do summin about the grey trim of the bottom of the bumper now, may take it off at some point to colour code or fit an ms lip as i dont think i'll be fitting an st front bumper

 

few more shots

weather seems to be getting better so i thought i'd start hydro dipping again

 

started off with me garage door, and to my surprise it actually went completely perfect and looked beautiful..

 

 

..and then i went n dropped it  :o

 

was trying to wipe some of the sticky gunk from around the sides n it slipped out my hand

 

so now theres a few minor imperfections and one big patch missing from where i tried to touch a little thing up n ended up taking more of the print off  <_<

 

anyway here it is

 

 

not finished yet as i'd just put another clear coat on it just before taking the photo so its still wet

 

all being well i might actually dip the rest of me parts over the weekend

right so after much much faffing about, sanding, priming, basecoating and dip my interior parts, only for it to be almost impossible to get a perfect finish and something some how always going wrong, as well as the amount of mess to clean up adfter each dip n how hard the stuff is to scrub off

 

i've decided to complately scrap doing to interior in carbon fibre for now and instead i'm gonna spray all my interior trim pieces in gloss black instead

 

photos to follow once its all sprayed

After a lot more faff than i bargained for, the next little mod is out the way

 

2013-05-09172150.jpg

 

I've fitted an additional 12v supply in the dash storage compartment (thanks to Clive for kindly supplying the extra socket and loom)

 

So now I can stow away all the wiring for my satnav

So now instead of having a long wire trailing over the dash down to my garage door infront of the gearstick, it all goes tidily away in the top of the dash

 

2013-05-09175206.jpg

 

2013-05-09175148.jpg

 

It works a treat but my god what a right unexpected faff, didnt realize it would be so much hassle

 

 

Is this something anyone would want a guide writing up about?
