    Its done!. Opinions!

    Well sum ppl may remember i posted about my g/f crashing the car and it needing a new bumper, headlight and d/s wing. After getting the bumper, splitter and silver sideskirts from wu_swordsman and then getting a star silver wing from ebay for £25 i was finally able 2 fix the car.
    It took about 3 hours 2 get the old wing, bumper and skirts off and then re-fit the new ones.
    Here is the car b4:


    This is the damage:


    And this is the car now:


    Im really happy with the way it looks now and also the amount of money i managed 2 save!.

    Thanks
    Nick

    looks good,

    personally im not a fan of the front splitter as it looks to much just stuck on the bottom of the bumper without being attatched properly, but all in all look very good,

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    but rabbits obliterated them, twice. After £100 on 2 pair I've left them off and am now saving for a GSI bumper from LMF
