    No wasn't a factory fit but used tiger seal and did it myself and not an expert in bodywork but we all make mistakes and learn from our mistakes so I'm going to get sikaflex 255 it's the stuff they bond windscreens with apparently but I'm going to source all my bits first then get everything painted ready to go on already picked up a set of skirts for £40 of in2deep (cheers for them mate) just need door trims and s4 facelift rear.
