    cheers nomis i have got gloss black wing mirrors to go on waiting for them back from a mate then the front splitter and the rear valance are also going gloss black

    toying with the idea of having the rim protectors colour coded to orange might be a bit OTT though

    Oh my! That looks absolutely tremendous!!! Mirrors, diffuser and front lip will look great in gloss black, but I personally wouldn't do the rim protectors in orange, TBH they look great exactly the way they are, breaking up the whole black wheel thing and giving a bit of definition between wheel and tyre. Exhaust, AP brakes and KW's are the absolute BOMB, ..not forgetting your grille of course, lol!! Love every bit of it, well done Fella!! :wub: xx

    beautiful car! and that colour is an absolute head turner!
    i agree with the black mirrors rather than orange.
    that exhaust system is gorgeous! and top quality work on the rear diffuser! looks just perfect.
    if you want orange near the wheels i would say get the centre caps orange rather than the rim protector.
    also some subtle tint lamin x on the headlights would look good.

    lots of serious work has gone into that car...

    bit of a update for you all the car is staying :yes:
    it's going to be a road going track car now the toy for the weekends. plan to go to around 500/550 after the gear box is back from HPA in canada next year and more parts are on there way as i type the new car will be here in a few weeks fingers crossed anyway a few pics from the AMD track day at brands hatch top day all went well and the track bug has seriously bitten.

    Big thanks to AMD for sorting it all out.

    Good to hear that.....it was a great evening out,and a pleasure to meet you and your folks as well as giving the cars a bit of hoof.
    Mine is staying as well(but I think I'd always planned to),but is getting the suspension revised,and a larger set of wheels and tyres.....you'll love having a BT kit on that car,and it makes a huge step from Stg2+.
