Thats a really cheap quote ... Make them stick to that .... if you want to try it yourself the materials can be ordered off mdp supplies for 122 GBP and you will need 15 mtrs of 1524 cast vinyl ... All the tools you will need is a heat gun, a scalpel and a tub of degreaser for the panels ... If you key the panels with a gray scotch pad before hand the vinyl will stick better ... Its best to do all the panels off and then assemble after .... Dont heat and stretch the vinyl 2 much as the color will distort ... you would save yourself a fortune doing it yourself ... Be very careful where you put your joints .... If you want to come down and have a look at mine your welcome to ....

You should do the quad light conversion while you have the lights out in the rear

The asking price for the entire car was €600 last week...I'd say theres €€€€ to be made from it.

600 that all sure the wheel kit and seats alone are probably worth that,
all i wanted was teh seats and door cards but there goes that idea, ah well itl do well for me for parts,

Im getting the following
Bonnet
Headlight covers
Tail Lights
Rear Bumper
and the air intake ( Gona leave it black to go with the yellow black look i want, )
I also think I might il have a look at it when i get down there and see what might be salvageable off it,

He said €50 would cover p&p for the box on a pallet. Was thinking the same about crimbo out of the way 1st and it's also a big gamble that the box is in good nic! Can an LSD be fitted in a normal box?

Ah I took the easy option delivered to my door cant go wrong with that , with the cost of the items a petrol to and from limerick and then down to you to get the bumper it probably would have cost me just as much , just easier this way ,

Anyway ive got all the parts the tail lights are cool they are QUAD ones black they are awesome , also teh bonnet bumper and headlight covers are perfect, the rear intakes are a bit off in size so a bit of jiggery will get em sorted ,

What looks best two intakes or 1,

Some people like 2, some people like 1, some people like none! just personal taste

Good thing is that they're reasonably easy to bolt on/off to change the effect.

Yeah suppose your right, but these scoops seem to be a bit shorter in length than the slats that are currently on it , I might see if I can mould them onto the old ones to get a perfect fit all round ,

I will be uploading all the latest pics tonight 4 defo might be a bit late doing it around 1am id say but they wil be up tonight ,
