The front spoiler arrived, it didnt fit!!!!!

We ended up cutting and refitting it. Also we back filled the spoiler with expanding foam, clingfilm wrapped the front of the car and remoulded the shap to fit perfectly.

I chose satin black for the finish as i prefer as close to factory as i can get it. Not a lover of shiney or colour coded, they look nice but just not too my liking.

There are many more equally if not better, really nice looking parts to come.

"Factory" finish for your car is no overfenders at all.....

Dont want to be a bit'ch - but this is not even close to perfect ;) Next time put masking tape on surface on witch you are trying to fit the part on - use some fiberglass filler on the edges where they meet body of the car - and mount the part while the filler is still not dry. Once it dryes out - you will get perfect fitment ;)

Heres example for yea of the same method used on the wheel arches ;)

Everything else - look pretty nice :)

It's so refreshing to see someone putting in a very respectable amount of time and effort to keep this car alive. I never post anymore, but seeing this is great! Keep up the great work...I can't wait to see mine again...

If you subscribe to JNC you can see some of my pics in Vol. 3. I feel they did a great story on her.

I'm inspired by your build to do more to mine. I never liked my glossy black over fenders either :D .
