  1. @HEADPHONES @Umster Cheers gents! Tinted taillights aren't my thing personally. I like to keep both the headlights and taillights as OEM as possible, with the exception of painting the headlight internals of course!
  2. @valy Cheers mate! I was quite suprised about the award considering level of cars at the event. I won a free framed print of the car, a few bits of merchandise and other bits and pieces so it was pretty awesome! The photographer did an great job. I absolutely love that 3rd photo of my entering the event, just a shame I had the front plate fitted at the time
  3. Tucked Meet & Eat Pt3 completed. An awesome show at an awesome venue, I'd highly recommend it to all! Here's a few photos of the car at the event, all captured by @24sevenphotography on Instagram:
  4. Once again, another purchase from Yahoo Auctions! You do find some absolute bargains on there so I would ecourage anyone who is in the market for car parts to take a look! This time, in an attempt to remove some rear camber I purchased and fitted some Rear Upper Control Arms. Due to the fact that i built the wheels around the camber I had a few months ago, I couldn't remove the camber with the lower arms as that would cause the top of the wheel to poke out from the arch. Therefore I needed a combination of Upper and Lower Camber Arms to bring the camber back to a more reasonable st
  5. It's been a while since I last updated this thread so figured I'd pop an update on here quickly. I've made a few changes to the car since December, most of which in an attempt to get the car ready for the upcoming show season. I recently sent the front bumper off to Option 1 Sportcars (the place that painted the 326 wing and smoothed my bootlid) along with my new 3 piece front lip from Piotr Grzelak. I had the front badge removed and all of the previous work of 'smoothing' the front bumper redone as the paint was begining the flake off in very small areas around where the headligh
  6. @HEADPHONES Unfortunately, I think good ol' South Gloucestershire Police have exactly the same idea haha! It can be a nightmare at times that's for sure. There's only so many times you can get pulled over before it starts to wear a little thin.
  7. A couple of quick photos while out 'n' about in the car. I've since fully corrected and ceramic coated the paint as well as a respraying the front end. Hopefully i can get some photos up on here soon.
  8. @GranTurismoEra I've used the Neodymium discs, 12mm diameter & 3mm thick. I have about 12 of these on the plate and the same on the backside of the bumper. And yes, Epoxy Resin to secure them.
  9. @CalvinPomfret I had the plate made by JDMPlates. They're a little bit pricey (I think i paid about £35 or so for just the front plate in their 3D Gel), but definitely worth it imo. It's the only place I've managed to find that offers Gel Resin plates in non-standard sizes. And cheers!
  10. @CalvinPomfret This is the only photo I have of the backside of the bumper. The tape was only a temporary measure as i had previously superglued the magnets on but over time they began to fall off. I've since bonded them on with epoxy and have had no issues since. I also have a slightly smaller than usual import plate on the front as I found it fit the bumper better. A typical UK plate is 520mm x 111mm, whereas mine is 408mm x 87mm.
  11. I've used Neodymium magnets to hold mine on which has seemingly worked well so far (12mm diameter, 3mm thick magnets on the plate and behind the bumper). If you do go down this route, make sure you cover the magnets on the plate with some form of felt to reduce the likelihood of any marks being made on the bumper.
