  1. a vauxhall character in a ford :O !!! shocking lol
  2. yea a friend of mine does wrapping and window tints... he has an adhessive he sprays on first then the wrap goes on which hed heat with a heat gun... with the initial adhessivethis would allow you to move the wrap around and then when you apply pressure it would stick solid... my friend had a unit he works from in essex if your interested
  3. thanks for the links... very helpfull looks like im torn between the goodyear efficient grip performance and the continental sport contact 5!! anyone used both?? the goodyear seem to have better fuel efficiency but not sure if it would look odd having the 2 front tyres different to the back. as it looks as though the continetal have more of a lip over the alloy
  4. Hi all, As stated above i think i will be needing new tryes soon. I currently have the origional continental tryes on, any ideas on how much they cost or has anyone changed their tyres for something else... cheers in advance
  5. Hmm I'm with Hastings and wernt charged anything for my rear parking sensors or tinted windows...
  6. Yea it's a common problem... I've also fitted 3 non return valves which haven't solved the problem
  7. Thanks... I have fitted reverse parking sensors and have the dual Cree reverse parking lights but without those I'd be stuffed and they're not even limo black lol
  8. hi paul, i persoanlly think limo black is too dark... i went with the next shade up not the best pic as i was in an underground carpark and the lighting makes the tints look slightly darker, but you get the idea...
  9. Haha yea I have as it goes lol
  10. Oh ok yea guess that makes sense
  11. Ok so this might sound stupid but what is the actual reason for the tint shade being illegal, as many drivers seem to drive around with sun glasses on lol I'd love to see a copper doing a light test on a pair of sunnys haha
  12. So I wonder why tinting firms claim it is illegal seen as it is there career you'd think they would know??
  13. But it sounds a lot it's actually not... And it's no worse than wearing sun glasses I guess
  14. Well technically the law is you can't have any tints on any fronts windows as of 2004 i believe... Ask any tinting firm!
  15. had an 18% tint on the rear windows and a 55% tint on the fronts... also got the covex light tints on the rear lights...
  16. just afew more pics... struggling to get day shots as im working 6days a week so thought id pop into asda the other day lol
  17. Looks much better!!! I bet your well chuffed
  18. Yea I guess it depends on how quickly you want it... And how reliable your source is lol Lenny didn't you have it where you asked for certain colours and they just sent you whatever they likes (colour wise) lol But it is stupid how much postage costs in the uk!
  19. Not the best picture but you get the idea lol
  20. You can try Uk seller based in North London and if your local, you can probs arrange to collect saving you money and will be a lot quicker!!!
  21. Yea they are really delicate to be fair... What colour did you go for... I found I had to file the back edge to get it all back together.
  22. Popped back up to Essex tints today to get the covex tints on the rear lights... Wasn't to keen on the idea before but had a think about it and went for it!!! Again a real professional job and it looks fantastic imho They worked wonders with the heat gun and I couldn't be happier... My only concern is when it comes to washing it lol Probably won't be able to get any decent pics until next weekend with these dark evenings but will try soon.
  23. Stepmg sorry to hear your having so much grief fella Where did you order yours from, and did you check it worked before you went too the trouble of tucking all the cables behind? If you choose to get another one, connect the ignition ring first and check it functions properly before you go to the hassle of feeding all the wires through...
  24. cheers for the pics yunii but if i was to put that in the rear ofthe car how do i attach it ?? i know there is a surround but how does the surround attach to the roof lining? is there some form of bracket?
