Had some down time from the car (diy) have to keep the funds coming.

Have had a few things sorted, New turbo spoiler picked up, waiting respray also some black interior plastic from and early car, got the new bushes for the door check straps to sort the crack noise on the doors.

And as this picture suggests I have found an irmscher number plate surround for my rear plate. Very happy.

Also had the driver's seat repaired. All coming good. Image

Spoiler looks good IMO - but does it hide/shield the rear brake light or?

I don't have a high brake light on mine. I need to shorten the wiper

I do want to source some original dark calibra plastic for the pillar trim but at the minute my sprayed black will do. Image

Some time this weekend, recut the threads on the turbo spoiler and got two coats of primer on. May needs a skim of filler as have a slight dip on the top, not sure how bad it will be yet.

Got the last wheel sprayed too ready for lacquer.Image

Had some time past couple of days and managed to get the spoiler sorted. Took a lot of time primer and sanding to get it right. Wheels sorted and pick up tyres on Tuesday. Getting there now.

Also had the seats wiring done and they are ready to be fully fitted once I figure out how. Image

Found a broken rear spring, so I have found a good set of lowering springs, will bring the car down by 40-45mm all round.

Hope it's clear of the tyres anyone got pics of a theirs lowered that much? Image
