    Yes it will be great, the bumper is trimmed on the inside mainly the remainder of the crash bar, but not on the actual mouth which I'm glad about. I've absolutely no space for anything in the front :lol:. I've still gotta get 2 fans on the AC condenser yet which will result in a trim probbly in...

I will be making the lower halfs one piece again due to the joint been in the wrong place. Might put a...

    Made a start fitting the skirt clips and pins as my previous car they were tiger sealed on.. but this car I want them on correct. So made myself a clear template (so I can use it for both front doors) marked the centre of the clips for the pins, after multiple double checking as I only get one...

    Progressing on with the sideskirts as they were well battered, and dropping to bits. But they lasted over 10yrs. So using my old doors as molds I cracked on and re profiled them as the plan is to be able to remove them if I ever need to. Not only that they use to scuff the sill mouldings and it...

    Collected my sideskirt clips that I've had 3d printed. These have been a nightmare to get right. Original clips have a 10yr life silicone Flexi added to the plastic hence why they bend and take a beating when skirts are removed. I was lost off after the 4th attempt at making these clips straight...

Saturday morning I set to building my bumper back up. Went and got new bolts for the splitter and the zinc coated acme screws in...
