Default The Official Winter Re-build thread

I'll start

Just started prepping mine for a respray, new bonnet was needed after a too-close encounter with a deer, and I've decided to add my own unique touches to the front bumper.





Currently making a ducted cover for the driver's side cut-out and will be making a number plate bracket for the passenger side

Although I am considering just meshing the lot, what does everyone think

Prodriverules, he's in Leominster and mixes his own paint so I'm thinking DBM with a twist

Roof vent next I think, and then prep all of the plastics

Jigsaw and a fine blade, piece of cake - I've built a whole bodykit before so a small hole is nothing

You have certainly been busy Jon, I love the idea for your bumper. Are you going to make a scoop similar to the Chargespeed ones?

Not quite, should have some pics tomorrow, but I really am tempted just to mesh it and leave it all open

It would certainly be the easier route. Might be able to get somebody to Photoshop your pics and add mesh to help you make your mind up

It'll be a 10 minute job to cut and trial fit the mesh, will just need to knock up some mounting points

Update....

Vented fog cover, needs a bit of work but shows the idea, on hold for now because...




Meshed cut-outs on both sides, just need to decide on whether to go for a solid towing eye(race style) and also how to mount the number plate






Also have a new cold air duct on the way to fit behind the mesh, and I've chopped the inner wing to help it fit better

I can't wait to get you to paint it either, I will give you a call to talk £££ (ball park of course, can't expect an accurate price until you see all the dings etc that need sorting)

Thought of that, could be scuppered by an arsey copper/MOT tester. I'm considering a square plate on the passenger side
