    This weekends free ott modifications, ahem

    Well, not really modifications as such, i don't go for the highly modded look, i prefer to go with near standard and clean,

    hence this weekends work.
    Presenting
    Clean wheel arches
    Firstly, all trims removed, then truck washed & pressure washed

    Looking better

    And complete

    And now for the rear

    Thats two coats, trims to be refitted tomorrow when fully dry.
    And yes i did get some on the mudflap, that has now been removed !
    Comments about how totally anal i am welcome

    Standard and clean has to work for me! But I do like the 'OEM' look, something that Vauxhalll could have done if they wanted!

    Nice looking car. What paint did you use under the arches? I think you should colour code the door handels and maybe the bupstrips.

    I like the way the black breaks up the silver, all one colour is too much in my opinion, also it's in keeping with the near standard look, only other mod will be the front grill for a black irmy one,
    paint used was good old

    Thats why i said colour code the door handels and only said maybe to the bumpstrips because i thought the bumpstrips would break it up.
