Cheers Lenny. Will do that once on the laptop at home.
Car booked at MFK Autocare this afternoon for some upgrades after your recommendation.

Widebody added to that with dual exhaust and a massive rear wing! Also, ditch the engibe and get a detuned F1 v8, mounted in the middle. Ultimate sleeper lol

That was very nice of them to do that for you. Maybe just to name their business to get them some good advertising for free. It's always nice to see good people in trades.
I didn't get what you were trying to do until I saw the bracket shape. Powder coated, they will look ace and will not rust. Colour match the mdf panels as well.

The wrap in the video is pretty cool. I actually like the colour of your Fiesta Kieran. Most Fietas here are either Red or Silver. I reckon that once you colour code the strips, it will look cool. Maybe an option would be to colour/plastidip the wheels an unusual colour to make the car stand out. 

 

As for the springs, if you can't have it lower due to speedbumps or potholes, consider just sticking with the stock height. Eibach Pro-Kit would only lower it by 30mm all round. Any chance of having a look at a car with that on already to decide whether it would work for you?

Also, another plus of blanking the EGR is that the lag that is usually present in 1st gear will be gone. 

 

I would love to see a C-Max modified with rims, lowered and bodykit!

Hope it's sorted with the alignment Lenny and it doesn't happen again as that doesn't look safe.

 

You decided on what tyres you getting? Sticking with the same or a different set?

Lenny man, lucky escape there buddy! The tyres wouldn't have lasted any longer I reckon. Do you know how many miles/km you got on that set?

 

So, excuse my ignorance, but does it mean that running negative camber wears out one side of the tyre quicker? Just wondering for myself now if/when I do lower the car with rear camber. 

 

The Red Bull graphics turned out really well. Looks totally oem. Can't wait to see it all in the car  :)

Fingers and toes crossed that it all works out. It would look awesome with the aluminium  :)

Good plan there to get it done properly. I remember as well that with all the materials, it didn't save a lot of money and I spent a huge amount of time trying to get it done.

I think you can get a decent level of finish if you do it by yourself with rattle cans. The key to it is to take your time for the preparation work and get it all done properly even before applying the paint. Get a small electric sander. I bought one for 20 euro here and it was a huge time saver. There are youtube videos to learn from how to paint the parts. It's something that you do need good weather and warmer temperatures to make it work. You could always just get a paint shop to get it done for you as well  :)
