    WIP - ibiza splitter didnt work, so gone for irmy splitters (pics)

    Follow up to my WIP on the ibiza splitter, i just didnt work, keep cracking, bloody hard to spray, and wasnt at all happy with it,



    So i decided to get some irmy copies off good old ebay, got front and back delivered for 100 which u cant complain. they r quiet a good fit better then i expected.







    Now finally finishing the front with some laquer







    Thre where runs in the rear splitter so still working on them.



    Update to follow up soon

    Finish on the splitter looks good - is that before polishing, or after??

    Don't you find that colour a bit of a **** to match? I have the same colour and i've sprayed bits myself, and i've had bits done at the bodyshop, and neither have been bang on

    i don't think it ever comes out 'metallic' enough from rattle cans, and when the body shop do it it always looks more orangey than mine

    Didnt think you could get that could in a rattle can, unless its made up by a paint shop. vauxhall said they dont do that colour in cans.

    I always use a compressor
