Ignore that last message couldn't remove the quote box ^^^^ 

Does pain me to see the wheels however that filling looks good. Might try doing it myself however would need to get paint which matches the wheels. 

I worry more about myself damaging the car rather than other people.

My advice would be to make sure you get the right paint first 🤣 the rest is just patients.

So gently tapped a curb the other day and thought that's no biggie I'll do it myself. If only I'd done some homework first 🤣

The damage.

A bit of sanding, filling and priming.

Looks like I'll have do do all of them now. Bugger.

Sorry to be a bother, where did you buy these? I’m wanting to swap over all the matte black plastic to gloss, seeing it on your car only solidifies that! Looks amazing so far mate.

Nice mate, looks well.  That engine cover is awesome, I'd been looking at doing it myself in VW Viper green.  Well done.  The VW Pepper Grey, is that a dead ringer for the colour of the wheels? Going to do the MK8 stubby, as that standard aerial is like a riding crop used in the National.  Did the airbag light delete cause any implications?  I actually plan on taking that cover out and wiring up a wireless charger for my phone, I can't be annoyed with the wire coming up from the USB port.  Did you spray the washers, or were they paintmodz ones?  I got myself mist type washers from the focus and want to colour code them, however I'm not sure If the paint blocks the jet.  That rear badge is awesome too, where did you get it or who done it, again I want mine in green, black and green theme Fezza ST.

Airbag light covered is fine but not had an MOT yet. Disconnecting it will put up the airbag light on the dash.

Washers are PaintModz but have done some in the past. I used drink straws in the holes to prevent paint from blocking them.

DMB for the ST Gel inlays here https://www.dmb.uk.com/prod/5515/custom-order-fiestastinlays there my own design 😉

Airbag light is definitely going to put that idea on hold :/

Fair enough, I'll try and find my detailing tape, and just cover it with that.

Nice one mate thank you. I'll have to get them and the interior vent rings done, they'll be going black though with the rest of the dash.

Look nice. You need to put the ST wheels back on to make the car look as mean as it sounds 👍

So, the wheels are back. The company repaired / repainted them FOC and promised a good colour match so was really excited to get them fitted. What do you think?
