    Spot the difference?

    Hi peeps, see if you can spot the difference

    Before..........



    After...........





    For those of you who did'nt spot the difference, here's the answer. I have finally got round to spraying the bottom splitter, body coloured. Really suprised my self too. Put 5 coats of plastic primer on, 5 coats of paint, and five coats of laquer, and the results are 10x better .
    You see all the bumpers and side skirts are body coloured apart from the front splitter. So now its been coulored it matches everything, not bad mod for £12.50 , and I sprayed it myself.

    Yeah, the turbo splitter does look better, but shows up better when you spray it
