Up to date :

ABT wing, Extended Heckspoiler & ABT front grill repaired & fitted





Disaster struck though - turns out the sills had a really dodgy repair job so out they came for some shiny new ones :







Now just finishing off a few more bits and then its time for paint :)

Forgot I never updated this!......

Car came out well after paint : couple from Ultimate Stance :




Changed all the amber side repeaters and front indicator units to smoked with orange bulbs, looked a lot better IMO
