thought id make a proper progress thread :) so here goes

pics when i first got her 100% standard



gave it a good clean


then started to change it started with de-badging it


then took off the side bump strips (forgot to take pics)

went to conners day 2012 so gave her a really good clean doby, engine bay and inside






lately i have fitted HID's (yes standard lenses but will eventully get HID lenses of some sort when i find a set i like n have the money)


and while the grille is of im colour coding the chrome and guna spray the black part black (so i dont have to mess around with back to blacking it XD)
this is how it is atm with the primer


this week im hoping to have the grill finished n put back on and my new headunit installed

Nice motor there.

How long does it take you to spray a grill? I can get mine done in 4 hours, 6 if I have a coffee break.

looking good.

I know there was the long argument over the HIDs in the other thread. but with you having reflector lights im assuming the bulbs are H7r. If they are you will need to buy new bulbs when you buy your projector headlights as the H7r will only work in reflectors and in projectors it scatters the beam pattern
