I love these, but would they not push up the pipe a little further so it's a tad more flush?

 

Unfortunately not, the end of the exhaust is flared so the tip slides inside. Resulting in a smooth line on the inside of the pipe.

The only way I can reduce length (no rude comments please) is to get rid of the slash cut and make it vertical !

In doing the centre arm rest I had to decide if I was going for the single seam down the centre or off to one side (kinda like viper stripes) or a seam down either side or have a seam down either

A couple more photos for those following progress. the side and roof weren’t too bad but have came up well. I hope I’ve got rid of some of the holograms that were on the drivers door

After a lot of communication between SMPS2012 (site sponsor) I ordered the belt line kit. I literally couldn’t wait to fit it so pretty much went out and cracked straight on.

What can I say, I'm very happy with the job done (by The Wheel Specialist in Westerhope)


I thought I'd treat them to new rubber and went for Hankook V12, stayed with a 205/45/17 to minimise any rubbage as I was as close to the arch without rubbing as I could get without adding extra camber.


More photos will follow [emoji1303]

I know it's not a JCW so some people might hate me for it (putting JCW badges on a non JCW) I said I would never do it by hey ho, if you don't like them on my car buy them off me [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

A small update from last night, I picked up a set of grey 'S' side scuttles

They aren't quite the same colour as the wheels but we'll see how they match when the car is clean

Slowly slowly the chrome is covered or replaced. This time the door handles, some cheeky covers from Taiwan, the petrol cap is badly wrapped for now. I think I picked a hard shape to wrap for my first attempt, especially with the wrap having to stretch and then shrink around the back of the cap (where you normally hook your finger to open the cap). I may have to bite the bullet and buy a cover or pay someone to wrap/paint it.

I've gone with carbon fibre covers for now, i may wrap some wing mirror caps, I just don't know. The main aim was to reduce chrome for now.


If anyone spies a nicely price set of Blackline headlights or tail lights please let me know as I think this will be one of the next mods on my list (money depending obviously)

This looks ace Ian :good:


You doing a belt line cover ?

 

That is the plan, I just need to buy a few kits to see which I prefer. If anyone would kindly send me some links for quality beltline kits the they recommend I would really appreciate it as I have no clue what is decent stuff and what is rubbish.

Played around with a bit of insulation tape that I had going spare.

Just the (expensive but) headlights now !

Unfortunately I'm not fancying the joey mod, not on the fronts anyway ;-)
