    No mate it's not the camera I just washed the primer dust away before it dries out to be cleaned ready for some colour. I'll get some pics up of the bumper before I started the repair soon. I do all work myself bodywork etc.

    Only reason is asked is when I saw my car in the bodyshop it was matt.

    Made me wonder whether mine was right as what I know about spraying could be written on a postage stamp :)

    Cant wait to see the finshed pics sir.

    Just the foglights which I'm yet to order. Grille came today. The fk one looks non black chrome and I ordered the black chrome one. It has dimples from where it's moulded really not happy with it. Although can justify the cheaper price

    Thanks guys.

    Nally - I haven't actualy ordered the fogs yet can't be bothered ATM. Also there's no way of adapting the sport ones there completely different shape. I'll get the replica eBay ones for 23 pounds each. After that I'm looking at getting the drl headlights

    Look great mate, I had a go at spraying parts for my last bit, definitely not easy. So hats off to you on that.
    The plan sounds amazing, pricey but amazing.

    first of all mate, car looks great and hats off to you doing the work yourself! As for your next MOD keep going with the body work the S3 rear bumper and S3 side skirts as you mentioned and everything else will follow

    top work mate

    Car looks good and well done for doing your own work. Hats off to you....
    Sounds like some good mods. I'd lose the S3 wing mirror caps mind. But i'd go for S3 rear bumper, then the side skirts, MY11 rear lights and let the rest follow as Smoothie said.

    Cheers & good luck

    thanks guys. Yeah the spraying was hard work. i usually spray small parts for people seeing as i have all the equipment. I too think that the bodywork should be done first. Also im not a fan of the black grill tbh. I think the grey s3 one looks best although im eventually going to be getting the s3 front with the s3 grill but it looks better than it did before. many thanks

    That is f'ing stunning work mate :drool: .....I seriously wish I had your skills, but think I'd end up walking around just spraying things for the hell of it, including the dog if he lies there any longer... :laugh:

    This thread almost looked like you were constructing a giant airfix kit....those were the days :thumbsup:

    That's exactly what makes it so rewarding because of the real man hours that are involved in making it how it looks . I can't afford to take it to a bodyshop so I spend hours sanding everything till my fingers bleed. And this is my third car I have been modding. The first was a corsa second was an astra cabriolet which I resprayed about 60% of the car myself. It's time consuming but possible to paint all that cost me about 45 pounds for colour and clear
