Grammar police should lead by example. What next, a badboy bonnet with a ****ed up equation on it?

Dom stop it you're bringing tears to my eyes, I don't even mind having to open my passenger door to let you in, the way you change my songs like you own the car, the way you shout at me for not parking straight.... :wub:

Get a room you two :lol:;)

Looking awesome Ross :) looking forward to the BBS rebuild ;)

Thanks Alex, I'll upload some pictures once I split & re-build (Sorry again for breaking the promise to look after them)... :innocent: I wish mine was as clean as your Lupo & the Puma now, you should see my engine bay :paperbag:

They tuck like crazy though wub.png

The arches have been cut out completely now too, 1.5cm cut out, re-rolled, flared, stone chipped & painted over. Much nicer to drive with, as the noise was doing my head in.. and shredding my tyres ph34r.png

The front bumper was done at the same time which was stone-chipped like mad, there were 6 layers of paint on it too laugh.png however, it's going back in a couple of weeks to be re-done as the colour is ever so slightly out mellow.png

Now to start with re-building plus juggling 15k worth of uni work due for the 9th of May :shades: Wish me luck!

Nah they didn't, not many places did in honesty! I think I'm sending them off to mike the polisher now as he's the only guy who is willing to try my idea haha!

And for the numberplate lights, if they're in a photo it's the previous bulbs which are just 'ice white festoons' from HQ lighting.

These new ones are crazy bright with them being entire sealed units, still need to grab a photo of these though.

Ignore the standard wheels, can't wait to get the BBS back from paint and start building them back up with the new Radinox dishes :clap: Got a few other things planned which are all coming together at the same time, happy days!

Oh and I'll sort a photo of the numberplate lights out soon I keep forgetting, my bad! ^^^

Cheers both, I'll be at Players but not on the standards (I hope) I hate them haha! I ran no spacers, they look cool from side photos but silly from the back...

Big thanks to Dommmm as we both stayed up till 1am last night & he'd already done an all nighter for uni work the night before, we've got the BBS rebuilt I'm just putting extra coats of sealant on ready for tyres on Friday ready for the drive to players Saturday morn, hopefully they don't leak ph34r.png

I'm so happy with them, they were with the painter for about 2 weeks and reacted on the day I was supposed to be collecting them so only got them yesterday afternoon. It's a weird colour, it changes from red, black, bronze & brown depending on the light, but it's a dye rather than a paint.. I think it's sick can't wait to get them on.

I have no idea actually, I presume so. The dye was really runny unlike paint though, looked pretty cool!

Luuuuuurvely :wub:

Great colour on the wheels. Now yours and Bens parked next to each would be class!

Joe

Cheers both, I have no idea how the show & shine parking works at Players. Especially with so many cars entered in. You both going?

Wheels have had another layer of sealant & all bolts are torqued and new valves from 'the polisher' arrived today too, tyres tomorrow ooOoOooOOoo :innocent:
