Front splitter is now on 8) waiting for the some filler to dry then we will drill holes to match the arch bolts around the top edge.

Image

We had to profile re shape the edges of the splitter as it didn't fit the wide arches.

Image

Image

Also took a comparison picture of the orrgional steel wheel and what will be fitted :lol:

Lots of pics to update. I'll let them talk:D

Loads of work gone into making the front splitter work with the wide arches.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Pretty happy with how it's worked out!
Also cut two big holes in my bonnet!

Image


Image

Image

Over the moon with them! But not content with two holes we then started making more:D

Image

Image

Image

Image

Got to do the other side now :lol:

More soon:)

Also been trial fitting the mesh over the stupid holes in the scuttle.

Love this thread,

The mesh is something I need to do, is yours metal or plastic ?

Love the funky orange paint on the bits only the MOT man will see - nice attention to detail - I tend to do that as well hence my cars have lurid yellows and sky blue painted bits underneath which contrast nicely with the black (also us s up odds and sods of leftover paint :lol: )
