    Default Been busy

    Just thought I would show off a couple of my latest mods... Painted calipers gold and red, de-badged, tinted the back lights black mirror finish, got myself some new wheels and customised my front fog lights... I am changing all the headlight bulbs and fitting my quickfire air filter today, will post some more pics later. Hope you all like it...

    The side indicators should have already been mirror black like the back lights but when I sprayed the lights I wasnt happy with 1 of them because of a small run so I wet n dried it off and resprayed it using the rest of the tin, I'll be grabbing another tin this week and they will be done before the St Asaph show next weekend

    Well I got a tin of tinting spray from checkpoint motor spares in Mold (tin in the bin but I will grab it and get the brand name for everyone) I masked off the reversing light and used some old twin line pinstripe tape I had lying round and put a double stripe over the reflector part of the lense, sprayed the whole light and took the masking off before it had completly dried, then left them to dry...

    There is someone making them and selling the same style on ebay for £105, I did it myself for £11 and mine look better...



    The light shines through perfectly well even in bright daylight (I would say bright sunshine but we live in Britain lol)
