    Today's Mod

    Hey guys

    Well i've not had much cash to do a great deal recently but i figured i'd had enough of the car looking the same!

    I don't know how many have seen pics of my motor but here's how it looked before today....




    After the meet yesterday and thanks to Jammy(Cheers Mate ) she now looks more like this....



    Here's work in progress





    And any excuse for more pic slagging!!



    Any opinions are welcome guys!

    Cheers guys

    The grill is a Mattig item. Got it from LMF. I love it too. Mainly because it's fairly rare to see it. There's only a few other cars i know that have it.

    The lights do change the whole look of the front end IMO. Love em!

    Hey Monolith

    Unfortunately you do have to take the bumper off to change the front lights. The lights are held in by 3 bolts: Two on top and one underneath behind the bumper.

    The bumper itself is pretty simple to have off too. Unless, like with mine the screws in the wheels arches are mullered and unremoveable, which is why in the pic above the bumper is only half off! I'm gonna have the garage sort it this week while it's in for a service.

    I think there's a How To explaining how to do it somewhere....

    Bulb changing is easy tho and involves no bumper removal.

    ahh, sound... well, i'll have mine off when i get new lights... one of the bolts must be missing on one of my llights as its realy rickety, but as im not driving it at the moment, it'll be okay til i get some angel eyes

    Thanks for the replies
