    hats off to you mate but personally I would have regreted blending the bumper in head the bumper needs to come off to fit the headlights for one one knock and its a re spray, I can not comment on the kit I had the first one ever made.

    Got another way of getting the headlights in and out mate ;-). Its not coming cheap at all because the bodyshop doing it are pretty reputable. My brother has just had his prelude done there and has spent £16,000 so far and its looking really good. I love the colour candy red and reckon it will look nice once finished. Should really finish it off with the gold pearl.

    Looks good, will be awesome when finished. One problem tho - it's got too many doors!!
    lol, only joking mate. I think it's nice to see people really going for it and showing that 5 doors can be as good as 3.

    keep the updates comming.

    I think the 5 door can pull off a heavy kit like this, much better than a 3 dr - due to the chunky C pillars.

    However I'm in two minds as it's not my favourite kit, but it's gonna be in my favouite all time colour. So I'll reserve further comment till its all done.

    But it looks like they're doing a cracking job on it for you.
