  1. Yeah I live in Bromley (used to work in Croydon lol) so not too far no [emoji5] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  2. Hope everyone had an enjoyable, safe Halloween! Here are a couple of spooky edits I did for the cause lol. Taken at Scadbury Park Nature Reserve [emoji317][emoji914] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  3. Much appreciated! Thank you - I think it's subtle enough and goes nicely with the other gold accents on my car. Relieved it all tied together nicely as it was hard to tell from picture alone whilst they were being made miles away from me. De-tangoing (along with chrome indicator bulbs, yes) was something the pro himself recommended. Now that it's done, I can't imagine what gold and orange would look like [emoji23] Haha completely understandable. As above, I don't think I'd do too well with this myself. What's up with your headlights? Have they been scratched, or just getting cloudy? Oh, and as@Jonro2009 said, must be a trick of light. They're both black with a gold pinstripe running along the bottom [emoji6] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks a lot [emoji5] Haha no I didn't either. I've read heaps about the process but still didn't trust myself to do it! Heat gun/hair dryer is another good option if you're ever feeling brave lol. They were more of a gift so I just covered the cost of materials (pair of headlights, bulbs, paints etc) - sorry, not too helpful. The glitter is very subtle! See the below picture. There's added glitter in between the ring and the black casing if you see where I mean... I agree though that the picture quality has been significantly reduced [emoji853] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you! My accomplice did an exceptional job. I haven't finished thanking him yet lol Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. Fruits of last weekend's labour! Had these under wraps for a little while as I had my trusty right hand man on the job (wanted them finished before sharing), but excited to finally show off my custom headlights [emoji92] This is probably the first aesthetic mod that I haven't done completely on my own. Was nice to have the creative input of someone that I trust (as well as them doing all the legwork lol) and was equally as exciting to have progress updates along the way, right up until delivery! This must be what it's like to have your car in the body shop or alloys in for a refurb or something [emoji23] Work in progress: Finished and ready for fitting: All done: Also trialled some eyebrows which were consequently removed with immediate effect lol: Need to rework this as I like the look but the finish was not as expected [emoji853] So there you have it. New headlights in a gloss black with metallic gold rings and a de-tangoed indicator with a glitter accent. Thoughts/opinions/feedback all welcome! Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. Looks exactly like that I'm looking for. Still haven't gotten in touch but I made a note of their number. Thanks again [emoji16] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. Thank you, will definitely check them out! All sounds very nice. They may only be tiny changes but all part of the bigger picture in making your car your own! Still worth documenting imo [emoji5] I agree, but not worth the ticket you'll no doubt get in the post a few days later haha I haven't actually been on a proper drive since, but I can already tell they won't disappoint! It's actually still on lol - my friend with a code reader let me down [emoji1418] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. That's exactly why I chose those ones [emoji16] Perfect in every season lol. Haha, well I'd like to think I'm not wide either but it's definitely an all round more comfortable drive! Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. Ahh thanks Yunii, I'll have a look for him. Any idea on what measurements I would need for a MK6? I suppose I could ask him as well if I find something I like Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. I'll take that lol! Well glad it was entertaining for you to read [emoji5] Definitely need to have a proper look for some. Struggled with the measurements first off, and some I've seen are almost £80 for a set [emoji88][emoji88][emoji88] I like the ones you've posted though - go with my theme quite nicely! Let me know when your thread is up and I can have a gander at the pics [emoji5] I know what you mean there - being in London, a lot of the places I want pics are on a red route. Double red lines and no stopping/parking at anytime! I'm sure you'll get the shots. Maybe go at night and take a friend... The seats are so much nicer for long drives! Not difficult but just time consuming finding them in good conditions, no rips/tears, reasonably priced and not from Scotland or Plymouth [emoji23] Got there in the end! Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. Soooo much more comfortable! Can't believe how different they really are Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Completed today - Fiesta ZS seat swap! Picked these seats up earlier on in the week and finally got the swap completed today. My (wo)manpower let me down a lot here so unfortunately had to do this over a couple of days [emoji853] My perseverance was so worth it though as I'm loving the new look and added comfort too! I now have the airbag dashboard light showing however... But alas, they are in! Lol The seats in question! Got my gem of a friend who now owns his own detailing business to come down and give them a good seeing to before I even attempted to fit them. The results were great [emoji92] Didn't realise quite how grubby they were until they were clean haha! Before - factory seats During - was really surprised as to how much space I actually have in here! [emoji23] Considered only having a drivers seats for about... 45 seconds (because racecar [emoji57]) and started getting to work on putting the ZS ones in lol Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk After! Even did a little victory pose once I had finished the job [emoji23] Now just to sort out what I've done with my airbags and then I'll be able to smile properly, with teeth!
  14. What a lovely comment, thank you! Also kudos to you for taking the time to go through everything - this is quite a long thread! Lol My alloys definitely need work but 5 years driving and still kerbing wheels when pulling up at the road side... I don't trust myself with anything else at the mo [emoji23] I quite like the exposed wheel nut look, much to people's dismay. I really need some coloured tuner nuts and I'll be happy [emoji16] bought some wheel nut covers in gold but they were too small [emoji2374] That was a good photo day lol. Found loads of nice spots venturing into Surrey. I appreciate everything you've said and I hope you'll stick around for more of the transformation [emoji5] Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
  15. Been on a few nice drives recently. Some pictures below: Surrey Hills AONB (Box Hill) Abandoned pub, South East London Brighton Marina A local village lane, South East London Sent from my BLA-L09 using Tapatalk
