    Fawk me, thats more like it, If I'm honest, I though it looks a bit hashed together and pooh (IMO) previously, But thats looks spot on :thumbs: even when it was still matt but arches removed etc, now with the shiney paint it looks really classy :cool:

    Are you fitting the front lip? or isn't there clearence?

    That is TASTY! You've certainly cleaned it up, don't stop driving it properly though! Will be good to meet you over the weekend.
