    soon it will be……just have to remember where everything goes.

    still have to get around to booking the painter but i have fixed a few issues of the fitment of bodykit from the last crashshop.

    Now It has a S/hand Genuine VS SS front Reo to mount the foglights, Genuine New VS SS Front Bumper, to fix an issue with the Drivers Side Bezzel which didn’t sit right when it was fitted originally. i’ll reuse the front skirt the car had on it.

    i got another boot for it because when i had the last S pack spoiler fitted to the boot, the crash shop didn’t fit it properly, and it had a massive gap, when i had just got the car back from them, the boot was filling with water, i fixed that but one day i was putting something in the boot and the  spoiler rattled when i shut the boot, i had a closer look at the 3 bolts holding it and 2 of the nuts were almost completely off.

    so bought a complete Boot and Spoiler, which is the white one that is currently on it.

    I Should also get the the Rear Skirt fixed as it doesnt quite sit 100% but that is only minor compared to some of the work they had done.

    but i’ll see if the painter can fix that before i buy another bumper.
