Agreed. I had a long telephone chat with them. They were very helpful . I would have been very happy to deal with them. Looks like you have a’goodun’ . Oh, just one question, out of curiosity. In the photographs on their website , it looked as if there were some marks on the passenger side ‘b’ post . Is that so, or was it the lighting on the pictures ?

I think that was just the lighting, few age related marks when i got it, but it was a very clean good example! I got very lucky :D

3 weeks without a car, how depressing but defo worth it. Managed to get all the little bits i wanted to do, done.

 

1. Front grill colour matched with certain bits being gloss black

2. Mirror caps black

3. Rims black

4. Rear bumper trim black

5. Few fixes

 

Really happy with the work done, going in on Tuesday to fill the holes in on the grill

Finally, I got the Valeo LED Tail Lights, they was so hard to find, but they are now on and i couldnt be happier. I am going to light smoke tint them, to give it that extra nice look.

Do this work straight from the box or did you have to swap around the internals for the fog/reverse lights to be on the correct side?

Unfortunately you have to swap the fogs and reverse lights but honestly it was really easy

I like the front lights. Do they have the dynamic/sweeping indicators?

Thanks mate, and really i though the eyebrows make it look so much meaner.

Was a long process but had to heat the light up and get at the glue on the edges
