Headlight upgrade - already!

Having had xenon and LED headlights for years now, I’d never relished the thought of going back to halogen. I found a set of all LED lights online with a green background and halo DRL which has the indicator switch back feature.  They arrived this week and I’ve just fitted one. I love it!

The cars favourite visitor..

My Little nephew, Charlie, visited again recently and as always asked for a play in the car.  He loves it and can’t wait for a drive!

Chrome finishing strips

Another quick job I did this weekend was fitting a few parts from the finishing kit.

Added the floor, side and rear stainless steel strips. All fitted and nice and shiny.  Not sure if I’m happy with the side piece and may remove, reshape and refit.



I finally got the last few pieces of the car including the exhaust which my Mum deleivered on a recent visit.  I fitted it this weekend and we are now so close to being finished. Looks amazing...

Finished the wrap

I had about 2 hours free today so finished the carbon fibre effect wrap.  I cleaned the aluminium which I took the protective covering off a few weeks ago, drilled out all the rivets and set to work.

It went on perfectly and absolutely love the effect. Really glad I did it.  There are a few imperfections but I’ll cover those with black paint and nobody should be any wiser!


Before adding the rear wings back on...

And all finished, lights etc all back in place.

I think I’ll paint the aluminium shroud in a gloss black to finish the styling and leave the stainless steel finishing trim in shiny silver.

Carbon fibre wrap

Today I decided to attempt to wrap my car.  I’ve bought a 4D carbon fibre style wrap which looks really smart. I cut it to length from the big roll I bought and then stripped all of the fitted parts out of the way.
I then started at the back and made my way forwards.  It went on perfectly and love the effect. A bit trickier around the front wishbones but still managed it.
Before starting..

Once the protective film was peeled off...

During the fitting of the film...

A close up...

All done

Back panel and the other side to go!

My baby boy in the car

Now the car is quite heavy its a 2 person push from my garage across the road to my drive where I prefer to work on it. I got my wife to help today and she brought over Oliver - my 6 week old baby boy.  He hitched a ride in the boot while we pushed the car - can't wait to take him for a drive!
