    I've been quiet for a while, but I've been busy.......more 'Custom' mods on 'quattro'

    Ok so the title is a little bit of a tease.....

    I've been busy dealing with a few problems in my personal life - but I've also tried to maintain some momentum in keeping 'quattro' in such a way she doesn't get bored

    Those of you whom know of me won't be surprised the mods are 'custom', and involve LED's, cutting, paint and Carbon film.

    Suppose I'd best go and take some photos........

    Yeah, interested in your rear lights. Seen them on the Internet but wasn't sure. Presumably you've Lamin-xed them?

    Where did you buy them from and which item?

    Here's where I got the rears from http://shop.ebay.co.uk/d_k_carstyle/...911.m270.l1313 although to be fair I then custom adjusted them......

    As for the carbon film it's really easy - providing you use 3M Di-NOC film

    I'm saving to get my front headlights custom done, not sure about the rears but yours look great. I was going to lamin-x to red but might replace.

    I found that Di-Noc more of a chew than I expected. It would have been nice to have three hands so I could hold the hairdryer with one and mould with the other two. Can not make my mind up whether to keep the chrome or di-noc.

    Hi
    I used the 3M Di-Noc for my interior. I covered the silver trim and ashtrays etc. with it, improved the look no end.

    While not the easiest to use I started on the long strips before doing the more fiddly stuff, hair drier makes it easier.

    Got mine on fleabay from Underground-Graphics, best price I could find and really good delivery time, next day to Guernsey!
    Will add a couple of pics if I can work out how.

    Rear rings replaced with OEM chrome versions, however the stealer didn't have any 'exact' ones in so I've gone a couple of sized up from original for my car

    Hope everything is on the up now Rich.

    Car is looking great. Agree with the others re the carbon rear rings, sorry. Then again it is pretty unique, so good on ya!

    Love everything else. The C6 RS6 grille looks mighty impressive especailly with that carbon surround. Are they the C6 RS6 option wheels you have now too?

    Tail lights, well... I'm sure you're going to be making a lot of B7 owners very jealous with those. I know a few of the B7 RS4 owners are looking at LED tails on RS246, not sure if they're the same as your's but I'm sure they'd be interested.

    EDIT: Why don't you you offer this as a serivce to people? You're obviously clued up with this stuff more than most and I'm sure there's many people that would like a set of pre lam x'd and custoim LED'd tail lights, just post your youtube video up everywhere and ask people to drop you a PM if interested. Food for thought?

    Respect

    The splitter is the good old Seat Leon Cupra R, available from your local dealer for about 22.

    Mine's adapted slightly in the mid section to make way for the motorised number plate.......so ignore the 'bit' in the middle!

    I cleaned my trim with Meguiars paint cleaner before application, but you can use anything that will in effect strip back silicone/waxes etc. T-Cut would do. What ever you use - make sure it's wiped off thoroughly, and indeed dry behind the lips where you'll be folding the film over.

    Bought mine from UInderground Graphics (ebay I think) in a something like a 1200mm x 300mm sheet - then cut it down in strips. This is relatively easy as there are cutting guides on the rear of the sheet.
