The lip is coming on nicely, alot of sanding to get it right, but the prep stage is always the hardest.

Nice idea with the lights, be interesting to see how these come out in the Lex blue.............Thanks for putting the pics up, I really enjopy seeing in progress shots.

Oh by the way what colour is your Lex and where did you get your paint mixed? Is it from a can?

done some more today iv taken the lip back to take all the chips/scratches out now it has had a coat of plastic bond so everything sticks to it, just need to get more plastic primer now i used the last of it on that last coat.

Just doing my side skirts at the moment and wishing i had my own spray booth to speed the drying up a bit :whistling: Got 1 in the airing cupboard at the moment as its nice and hot in there which seems to help :lol: Look forward to seeing it fitted mate :)

Hi Rig-Pig - the lights are looking great, I was just debating to spray my lights black or blue, but after seeing them I'm almost settled on blue - Have you got any close up pics / pics of the lights fitted to your car?

Ironically the bodykit if the next thing I want to get fitted - how much did you pay for yours, and where did you get it from?
