Great work throughout 👍

Love the retrim, like you say just like the newer V6s, and looks great, really lifts it

Your mate isn’t the same guy I’ve been recommended in Nantwich? I’m sure it’s not but just had the recommendation at the same time and seemed a coincidence

Thankyou
Possibly my mate is at Crewe and made his name in the VX220 world. But his day job working for Bentley if you want i can PM his details.
Are you on Facebook and he post on there too

I’m doing the majority myself at the moment so it would be logo embroidery I really need him for, but want to see if I screw up the binnacle and centre vents and if I do may be forced to outsource!

Wanted to be clear on what I’d need, don’t want to keep changing my mind and piss anyone off!

Finally new windscreen day, the chap from Auto windscreens did an amazing job. Cant beleive how scruffy the old screen was, it really gives a new car feel.

Pretty good weekend in the garage, clam fitted and i am happy with the shut line gaps, nothing worse than poorly aligned panels.

Image

Headlights cleaned up and sourced original stainless half nuts and washers.

Image

All wires and fixing nicely clipped up before the arch liners go in.

Image

Image

Front undertray before, looking rather tired.

Image

Nothing a bit of elbow grease wont cure

Image

Stainless bolts, washers and also stainless chimney nuts to finish the job.

Image

Worth the expense to buy all new plastic clips and fastenings.

Image

Just finishes the job and gives a factory look.

Image

Clam side panels covers and fixings nicely freshened up with some plastic black spray.

Image

Image

Arch liners in and polished up again with new fixings.

Image

Image

To complete the new windscreen i thought a nice geniune sun strip would finish the look.

Image

So apart from fixing the front indicators in that is the fron clam finished.
