    Talking colour coded bump strips and engine cover are on! (56k, get broadband!!)

    hi folks, just thought i would post up a few pics of my new colour coded bump strips, in ultra blue, i used 2 tins of the stuff and 2 tins of laquer, its taken me the best part of 3 weeks to get them finished, i assumed that my car was in prestige blue cause thats what other people said it was, silly me i didnt even look at the paint code! so i got them all sprayed up then realised that it was a really bad match! so i had to order the stuff from vxl cause halfrauds dont do it, as it happens with a bit of trade discount it is cheaper to get the paint from vxl rather than from halfrauds! (which surprised me a bit to be honest, as i had to fork out £80 for the primered bump strips from lmf) Vauxhall wanted over £100 quid for them! anyways, its all done and i'm really happy with it, its a pretty good colour match and the rattle cans didnt do a bad job at all!
    oh and i figured since the doorcards were off i may aswell use a roll of dynamat
    before it was done:

    the essential tools (cup of tea)

    door cards off:

    old bump strips off:

    new shiny bump strips:

    loads of dynamat!:

    and a couple of finished shots:




    and the tunes!!!!!

    and the engine cover

    Fitted options: Folding mirrors, cruise control, dual tone horn, remap.
    Next: Bluetooth

    the 2 little badges are just irmscher badges, i had to get the old style bump strips because apparently the new style ones are really expensive (tbh i thought £80 was enough!!!) so i just needed some sort of badge to cover the holes up
    dead chuffed with it! i have been working on them for ages getting everything perfect, so its nice that its payed off!
    only problem now is i'll be paranoid of people opening their car doors onto them!!
