    Meet Sabrean!

    The plan today was to black out her front grille, fit a new front fog light (screws rounded on the broken one so the bumper had to come off any way) and fit the front splitter!

    Well that was the plan, most of it went well!

    It was also my intention to fit a set of Eibach lowering springs but you need a 17mm allen key to remove the hub nut and by the time I had got one there wasn't enough hours of daylight left so there's a job for bank holiday Monday!

    Before!

    During!

    Here is a link for removing the bumper:

    After!

    I used a product called Plasti Dip to spray the grille its a spray on rubber coating!

    The grille when off easily unclips into three parts. (already sprayed!)

    And just clips back together.

    The splitter basically screwed on with self tappers but with a lot of measuring & modification to get it to fit!

    Then as I couldn't fit the springs I gave her a good spit & polish!

    Nice didn't think an LCR splitter would look that good on one!

    Looks nice mate, what's next on the list? I didn't get as far as finishing off my bumper today, but I did get some facelift lights fitted.
