    Rear triangles require the door cards to be removed. I think Ash posted a link showing how to remove them. It was in French or Google translated pidgin. Looked like a ball ache of a job to be honest.

    Edit: he beat me to it. That's the link.

    Hmm maybe I'll go for the triangle too sometime? Pm me people if you want a link to my vinyl guy ! Cheap as chips! And the 2 name thing is because I made 1 account for my iPhone and one on the computer for some reason ! I'm the same person though :)

    Also tomorrow do I go limo tint or one under [20%] light emission? What you think guys . :)

    How easy is it to tint the head lamps and fogs using Lamin-X?

    Looks good!

    Old ones are matt, new ones are glossy.

    Alex, Don't go limo black, it looks chavy.

    It's quite hard but not at the same time if you know what your doing ! I got 20% light emission tints and my black mirrors on.Some penis in a lorry threw a rock out the back and cracked my window though !

    Hope you took down the company name so you can call them up and make them pay the excess. Is it not usually about £50 excess for windscreens?

    great colour alex.

    just as an opinion, i think audi rings on the rear will give more subtle look if they were on?

    Looking good Alex!

    How the hell did you wrap the front lower valance? I've tried this numerous times and just cant get the wrap to form/fit to the shape! :think:

    If you could drop me a PM or reply here with full instructions it would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers

    In the pic of the valance being wrapped it looks like it might have been done in 2 pieces although it's hard to tell.

    Anyway Alex, where the hell are you? It's been 24 hours and you haven't added, modified or removed anything from your car. You're slacking son. ;)

    We've struck a deal, he's removing it a week on Wednesday then I'll be getting it.

    Yeah I think a notch is 100% nedeed. My mate said he could do it but I'd rather that type of thing was professionally done.

    Just don't think anywhere in the north east does it.. Damn farmers
