    Looks good, although I would personally let the Audi badge out as the numberplate is grabbing all of the glory at the moment

    ye the peel was really easy (and strangly satisfying)
    i did think about leaving the rings but then i sprayed them with the intention of peeling it back of and the guy in the first pic said it looked kool so i left it.
    and what do u mean by plain plates??... i have considerd metal pressed ones but... well decision decisions

    cheers
