    Default Exterior is 97.689% complete...

    Ok, so these things are probably never compeltely complete and there's always things you want to do, but I'm almost there...

    Any guesses...?

    Before:










    After:









    It's not totally ideal, as there's a mounting point snapped off from the passenger side headlight and I had to re-seal a large crack around the edge but it'll do for now till a decent one comes up on eBay. I also want to replace the upper section of the VXR bumper as it's a repaired one which I knew when I bought it but I just can't get it to sit properly on the right hand side and it's really bugging me...

    Apart from that, I just need the smoked rear lenses and the exterior is sorted...

    Sorted...

    I'll sort out the clean later on this month and give your polisher a try out - need to get some more snowfoam from Autobrite...

    Are my eyes playing tricks on me or does that bumper not match the car colour. Having seen this in the flesh I don't remember it being like that... I know the facelifts are known for not matching.

    The colour match isn't as bad as that looks mate, it's just the light angle I think as the bumper on the right hand side doesn't sit flush with the wing...
