    Default More Mods

    So with the forum down, I had to fend for myself and make myself productive. So I finally got round to doing a few mods to the car.
    Calipers - After a bit of deliberation over maybe going red, i decided to keep it simple and classy and go for the "new" look, so used Hammerite Hammered Silver. Very happy with the outcome.
    Rear Lights - Sick of the blocks for the tail lights and wanted to do something to change them. A bit of masking tape and Black Sapphire rattle can, and I go the outcome below. Fully aware that some may HATE this, but sure.
    Rear valance - Finally got rid of the awful Grey plastic, (sort of) I wanted a new design and not just all black like the Exclusiv's etc. So i based it on the SRi rear bumper but incorporated the number plate recess too. I really like this, unfortunately one corner didnt turn out right so have to touch it up.

    Anyway opinions valued as per usual.

    Hmmm at the first moment I thought, what is this guy doing to his Veccy, but when I see the lights on, this looks sensible. And the rear skirt, let's say it's a second-best xpack

    Many thanks GTS, yeah the night effect is far better than day time. It all adds up to make her a one off!
