What style you going for?


ST, but will be one of my later purchases along with dual exhaust as they are the pricier mods..

Makes such a difference I reckon it will be one of those things I won't be able to not have on future cars!
Also he said he would fit fly eyes on the rear fog and reverse lights for £10 so will probably do that soon too...

Looking good! What shade of tint is it? I took my strip down to the bottom of the sensor bit in the centre of the screen but it is only a light smoke so not as noticeable as yours.
With the FlyEye is that supplying the material aswell as if so that's a great price! Look forward to seeing it.

Thanks mate.

I went for limo tint as thats what i have on the rest of the car ( minus the front windows )

I was thinking that but i wasn't sure if it would look to big..so i went for the curved strip...

 

yeah great price, and yeah thats with him supplying the material :) He is going to let me have a go at it too !!....

As the weather was bad today I took shelter in the garage and painted my callipers...

Ignore the dirty wheels.. In need of a good clean
 
I have also decided that i am going to spray my DRL's black as i am not keen on the silver bit on them and try and get them to look more like a standard part... 
i taped them up to with black duck tape to try and get an idea of what they will look like....

This means i'm not the only one who's bothered by the empty lens area at the ends of the DRL's then.

 

It looks good from the photo, i wonder how visible the tape is? is it even possible to paint the plastic lens?

Yeah I have changed my mind on them since the time I got them, they don't look standard enough...
With regards to the spraying there's only one way to find out :-P if not I have some others in my watch list on eBay this is just a money saving idea to try first ...

Your DRL's seems to have alot of silver around the lens, these are the ones i have from this seller

No silver surroundings, only the ends that bother me, i could spray it i suppose... but before that i will try to heat up some electrical tape and see how well it merges

Abit off topic, but recently sold the KA that we got for the misses due to a fair few issues with it and have now got her a mini and must admit it's lovely we have already purchased her a few mods and she has a long list her self of what she wants! I don't know where she gets her modding ideas from ........ LOL

Due to this I haven't had time or the money to get myself much for my motor.. Only a white LED light to replace the existing standard yellow Reverse light which should be here Soon will put pics up of the difference when done...
Apart from this nothing :-(
I have my eye on a zetec s spoiler though and will grab that if I can get a bargain !!

Sorry to hear that mate,
Did you purchase the cree bulbs from china?
They have records of being bad mate, I recommended alltronix.co.uk
