Wow can't believe i haven't updated this for so long! Although i have been cracking on with the car.
So metal work all finished, i then i had to fit the kit properly, although it fitted well there was still a lot of fettling to be done just to make sure the kit fits where it should and gaps are spot on.
Heres the full kit i bought
First test fit to see what was what!
I used a different bonnet that i had as this fitted a lot better, the other would fit but needed a lot more work.
As i had decided to fit the lamp pod, (always had a soft spot for spotlamps). I picked up a pod but really should of looked into this more, the one i got was in 2 sections but the mould quality was poor so took me a lot longer to fit how i wanted it.
First job was to cut out the front upper panel between the lights
Then offered up the lamp pod, well that was a laugh almost welded the front panel back in again😡.
Well after lots of shaving twecking etc i got it fitting well
This was only half of it as i now had to fit the lower section into the bumper, can't recall how many times i measured to make sure it was spot on, once cut and fitted just with tape at this point.
It would take lots of prep to get it looking well with the bumper, before that i fibreglassed it into the bumper.
Here it is fitted with just i pair of lights to see all was ok, don't get me started on the fabrication needed behind to get these lights fitted!
Fitted the rear end back up and the Irmscher spoiler sections to the top of the 1/4s, always do a test fit before paint as easier to put things right now if needed.
Then it was onto a case of getting the first coat of 2k primer on.
So first coat on with a good dust coat to show up any imperfections when sanding down.
Ok so after spending ages flatting the whole car down including the kit etc i then gave it a 2nd coat of 2k primer. I haven't done the engine bay as yet because this will need a bit of fabrication work for the engine, intercooler etc and new pedal box.
This is the engine i'm fitting!!!
I'll update the thread sooner next time🤞
