    Bumpers sprayed and finished and fitted(pics!!!!)

    As most of you probably know i have sprayed my bumpers to match my car, and i am truely amazed with the finished result.
    What do you think:



    The front(with silver mesh, had no black paint so it will have to do for the min):-

    Overall view:-


    And a quick pic of my amd and sub, and mdf floor, simple but effective.

    A few future mods maybe a gsi black boot panel(should look mint against the white, and a gsi front grill)
    The bumpers have really transformed the car.
    Thanks for advice, especially from scottyboy for the spraying advice.
    Cheers
    Any comments :P
    My mk3,117K, and the engine is still going strong

    Nice one! That looks much better! Good work! Was that using a can or do you have a compressor?

    Painted with 2 cans of glacier white spray paint, in my back garden. I don't think a bodyshop could have done much better. Cost me £7.88 in all. Beat a bodyshop quote
    Good result with cans isn't it, i love the look.
    Moving on to the door handles next, as Autosparks said.
    Thanks for the comments.

    Yeah i am mate, my username is long live the nova.
    Quite a regular member on there as i wanted a nova originally but then picked up a nice standard mk3 astra for cheap
    Spent quite a bit on it now, and it no longer looks standard.
