MY FIRST LITTLE MODS TODAY

Recommended Posts

Hi all i thought i would i upload some images of what i got up to today despite the dodgy weather i managed to do my first ever car mods.

de-badged back end and fittend my FK badge-less grill i have to say i am not to happy with the grill as i recived the wrong one and was sent a chrome one so i kinda did a tempory fix by applying black tape to the chrome parts untill the weather is good enough for me to get out and sprey it also the clips did not match up at all so i had to piss about finding a way to fit it. in the end i used super adisive foam and it worked but i am not happy with how its settled looks slightly of center.

any way a few images for you and i also belive this is the first time i have uploaded my car

De-badge back end.

As, above, good start. Now get it on coilovers.

One little thing, get rid of the P plate. Other drivers seem to see L and P plates as an opportunity to bully and intimidate.

I also got sent the chrome grill by FK, I wrote to them, got a refund and didn't have to send the chrome one back.

They told me they didn't have a black one in stock that they could send out but I bought a Mattig one instead, like yours, the clips are different and I can't get it in!

I too will be using some form of an adhesive, probably silicone - but am waiting for a warmer day to do that.

De-badging looks neat, well done.

Looking forward to seeing your door pillars!
