Haha! Nice car you got there pal, like the wheels a lot, what's next for it mate???
Some nice cars at the trafford meet today, had a good time
Am working on it.
well isnt sitting perfect as of yet so that needs sorting. should have some updates this and next week so keep an eye out.
Its so ironic how I was at the trafford centre today! But no car, so will pop along when its ready.
Will do pal! I'm on the lookout for an s3 front bumper eventually, do you (or anyone else reading this) if the fogs are the same in the sport bumper from the same year??
Sweet man sounds good! Was a good turnout, all sorts of weird and wonderfulls
I will man, when I get the car back, so probably the first one after UD
Mega busy day today, put new grill on and put lamin-x on fogs.
Started by taking out the three screws under each wheel arch,
Next i took the top grill screws out from the top of the grill,
Following on was the screws that hold the bumper to the belly pan, whoever owned this car before me loved scraping over things!!
Next was the screw and popper which hold the wing to the bumper, i used a small allen key to push out the stud (cheers Alfiejts)
And from below looking up
After this was the one last bolt that holds the bumper to the car structure,
Now i slowly prized the bumper until it unclipped at each side
One quick pull and the bumper came forward,
Pulled out the inserts and unscrewed the fogs,
Cleaned the lenses with cold water and a cotton cloth
I found that if you breath hard on the lense, this gives you a nice misted surface, then applied the film slowly, smoothing with my thumb
Once on and happy with, i heated with hair dryer and left to cool, one done so repeated for second
Next i unclipped the badge from the old grill and placed it on the new one
After unclipping a million clips i took out the old grill and dismantled the number plate off it
Time to mount the newbie
Clipped straight in, sorted! Mounted fogs and inserts and time to put the bumper back on!
Finished and washed happy now!
