Giving the old girl a makeover.

Just giving myself a head start before the real work begins tomorrow.

Wings just held on by one bolt. Bumper has one screw rusted in that I can't shift and the 4 torx bolts under the bumper all sheared. Updates tommorow.

Yeah got a pair of genuine D4 wings eventually. Paid £350 for them and £120 to have them both painted in my colour. Pattern parts are the same price and are only in primer so best holding for a set. Nothing really hard about it apart from getting the bolts out. Will post more photos tomorrow.

Cheers James Thumbs Up

Apart from the bolts shearing and still not being able to get one screw out its all gone a bit easier than I thought. Got someone coming round later with a tap and die set so should sort that. Will get a CCF update as well for the xenons.

Photos to follow later Thumbs Up

Must admit it was all pretty straight forward. If I had to pick one though it would be getting the bumper to fit. Lots of trimming of the IC air duct thing. But saying that I haven't drilled and re tapped the 4 bolts that sheared yet. So this post might get edited Rolling with laughter

Very pleased with it though and yeah it's going to get a wash tomorrow. Just need to sell bits I took off today and get a set of D4 colour coded arches. Getting a new front cowl for the Expo rack made when I take the old one off. Then fit some new LED spots to the rack.
