    i finally done the conversion from 2004 double grill to the single grill sline, got to say first of all a very very BIG thankyou to mattandrew from this forum for all the help and getting all the parts to me, i will post some photos soon but got to say it looks perfect, just need some side skirts to finish it off, the only down side was i got lots of "orange peel" on the bonnet but the bodyshop said wait for few weeks till the paint hardens and they will mop it all out,lets just hope that works, on few places on the bonnet it looks like matt finish but apart from that it came out lovely, will post some photos

    Fog wires went in todays post recorded delivery, they will need signing for on delivery or Royal Mail will leave a card and you will need to collect from postoffice.


    If I was you I would get them to respray it, you will never be happy with it if not

    Hey Kahlil looking forward to seeing the pics. I wanted to do this conversion myself. I pm'd mattandrew twice after I saw his conversion to get info. He said to pm him in his post for anyone that was interested... but I never got a reply.

    Maybe you can fill me in?

    Tnx in advance

    regards
