    Default A Few Cheap Mods Done

    So I finally got around do doing a few bits & bobs that I'd been planning for a while, namely grille, eyebrows & painted callipers:




    The camera has made them look much more dayglo than they actually are, it's just plain ol' Smoothrite red.






    I found these valve caps for a fiver, which I thought was a bargain.




    Some shots of the car in full:







    I'm quite pleased with the results, it makes a big difference to the look of the car for the little money spent.

    The next thing I want to do is give it a claying, polish, wax & all 'round good going over, but that will have to wait a while until my back has gotten over that lot.

    Good work fella! The small mods make all the difference. The brakes look great behind some v clean alloys well done. Good luck keeping the valve caps though, they wouldn't last a week around here

    Thank's for the replies, chaps.

    As for the valve caps, I tightened them with a spanner so if the thieving scrotes do manage to get them off then they've earned them. Still, if I do lose them, better a 5 quid set than the Irmy ones I almost bought that were £22.
