My bumper trim is nowhere near as bad as that mate. Must do those pics for you. Got to get rear ones off yet but they in alright nick and will look great with that trim paint you got.

Also got the lower engine cover fitted, was dead easy but the sump access hole is in the wrong place and needs to be modified Image

It has some wheel arch welding to be done as it won't pass mot like it is, so I have repair panels ready to go salvaged from an old DTM.

Then I have a long list of jobs to do to get it how I want her but important things first.

So found a lovely wet patch near the rear passenger light in the boot, thinking seal or the sunroof drain has come loose.

Also my lovely roof spoiler keeps coming loose, the sealant is rubbish.
