Alloy Plates with ABT Holders, De-chromed Grill, Painted Rear Bumper Insert
What colour did you do the grill and insert in?
How did you get the rear insert out?
Grill i did myself with rattle cans - halfrauds grey primer and audi brilliant black.
The back bumper insert pulls out with a bit of persuasion - if you feel under the bumper you should find 2 of the clips in the centre and you you can start to push it out from behind - probably best to start in the middle coz it tucks in at the sides - as with the grill there are about 2 dozen more clips than probably necessary so be careful not to snap any.
I'm not sure of the exact colour for the insert - i just dropped into the bodyshop over the road from where I work and asked if they could blow some black paint over it - I know he had been working on an S2000 but it's a decent enough match.
The grill i know about, ive had the front bumper off its the rear insert im struggling with because ive got parking senses so dont want to damage owt.
Think ill have alook just knowing it pops out.
Top job anyway.
What exhaust you got?
Exhaust is Jetex cat-back - got it off e-bay a while ago from a guy who bought it thinking it would fit his A3 so I got the system for the price of a new back box.
Thought it was.
Think ill be having alook at popping the insert out tomorrow.
