    Default GSi Bumper done and a full detail of all 3!

    Been a busy day for me today. Firstly I went to Marshall's to have the GSi bumper fitted. All went well there and think it has truly finished off the car.

    When I got home, I removed the Irmscher rear silencer as it just didn't sit right, and no amount of adjusting could make it look good.

    I also removed the Remus centre section as it made the car sound a bit boy racerish. So back to a standard system and back to the drawing board exhaust wise.

    So I did the tailpipe black, along with the rear chrome strip and badge. looks a little different but not sure if it is right.

    Opinions welcome.

















    I also decided to give our other two cars a good going over. So I am now knackered! But at least the cars are clean. It's is also good that we can get all three car's on the drive with ease now the driveway has been re-done!





    Thanks for looking and as always, opinions welcome!

    I need Adey to do a few bits on the car anyway at some point - it's getting far too hot to be driving around without my air conditioning working...

    Cars look great mate. Not sure about the black strip. Maybe if it was colour coded or even given a brushed / matte chrome finish. Other than that, looks spot on

    Saw it on the chrome V of a new tigra (I think it was) and did look smart. Would consider doing it to my V. Should just be a case of rubbing it with very fine wet and dry, but would have to experiment

    I did the chrome strip as the chrome had a few bad marks on it and a few bubbles in the chrome, so eventually it will need to be changed. So I thought I would experiment.

    I reckon it will go back to being chrome if I am honest. Keep it factory.

    Still undecided what to do about the exhaust. I may see what Billing has to offer.
