    Here it is, the moment you've all been waiting for!!

    FINALLY, i can show you all some pics of the coop.

    It's had work on every panel bar the rear bumper, it's been lowered considerably, and all the arches have been rolled.

    I know the front wheels look funny but the geometry is all over the place at the mo. Bith front wheels are toed out and cambered but it's due to be laser aligned and corrctly set up after christams. Anyways, enough waffle. Enjoy

















    Now i know it won't be to everybody's taste, but it's certainly a lot different than it was before. As you can see i've had:
    • the wheels have been glossed over over
    • gloss black roof
    • modified OPC grille a la Golf GTi
    • Vec C brake light on boot lid
    • modified wings, bonnet, and Morettes
    • Relocated, LED side repeaters
    • Removed rubstrips
    • Reworked flush fuel filler
    • Irmscher skirts
    • front fogs recesses blocked up and GSi bumper mesh
    Coupe now being broken for parts
    You know the one

    Enquire within

    I had the MOT tester there when i was weighing up where to fit them. i made sure that he was happy whith where they were situated so as to keep everything legal.

    A right ball ache Geoff, it's a bumper off and headlight out job. If one of the ballasts goes too, that's another ball ache as they're sandwiched in the wings

    As long as there in an indicator on the side of the vehicle it doesn't matter

    Loving various things you've done on there - look forward to seeing it all finished
