    Default de badged, airbox mod and clean boost valve

    as above got board today so de badged the boot didnt think that big griffin badge looked good on there with all the straight lines so took it off easy to do took less and 10mins, just needed a good polish and wax once off. heated with a hair dryer got a morrisons card and slid it underneath once it was warm and i could get my finger nails under the ring of the badge it came off nice and easy, bucket of hot water to wash it over and get the excess glue off then t cut polish and wax

    tools + hair dryer


    before



    during badge off with the glue still on


    waxed


    after smooth like a babys bum



    one happy customer lol


    also did the airbox mod but havnt got a foam filter yet but will be getting one. and i also cleaned the boost valve car seems alot smoother, just used a cotton bud to clean it

    before


    after
