Tails i like this color , i am going to be experimenting with the nightshade straight on white trim piece see if i get a deep maroon type color for the trim above the license plate, but i have to paint a piece of trim to test it before i actually try it on the car.

So some news , currently i have a set of these coming up from another member
Thanks Pyroinsa



I also have a Steeda Aluminium Plug cover coming , pictures as soon as i have it , also from another member here Thanks Turbo turtle

And i found a rather rough looking SVT Front bumper i am going to test fit on my car tomorrow and if all goes to plan i will be repairing and painting it and installing it .



and that came off this



and oddly enough the rear diffuser and front bumper survived.

I will post pics of the fitting , i may even drive with it for a day or two.

I am looking for a SAP rear bumper or SVT rear bumper now and will go from there.

That sucks that it happened to an SVT, but whats even more crappy is the way junkyards put the cars up on wheels(but that one is a 5-door, so no sideskirts) there is a sweet ZX3 in a junkyard near me and they ruined the ford accessories sideskirts by doing that crap:(

Yea i saw a whole bunch of cars where the side skirts were ruined , on the other hand working under and around the cars is so easy with it this way and brakes don't get entirely ruined by sitting in the mud and dirt . so its a hit or miss.

If this one was in any shape , i would have spent my entire pay check stripping it .

So i test fit the bumper , needed a little persuasion on one side , but in the end she fit on pretty good.









Now to tear it all down again for the repair.

So a small update , AS it snowed hits Morning (&#^$&&#&R#&^&@) but didn't stop me from doing a little work , took the SVT bumper off , then my old on back on , then started to repair the damage on the SVT one.

So as of 5 pm i have all the repairs done. Tomorrow sand down he excess plastic , and then rough it all up and prime. And Wetsand , and prime ad wetsand and see where i go there.

I am hoping to have it all primed by tomorrow evening.

I also start making a wire harness for my new headlights and SVT fogs. as my car doesn't use the same connections , i had to make my own harness.

Will post pictures tomorrow of the repair ad hopefully a primed bumper.

So another update , bumper is repaired fully , and the following are pics of my repair.



This was the worst repair on the thing , as it was a pressure joint , so it deserved a little more attention. so in the back looks ugly, but the front looks good.



this was a simple matter of reinforcing the crack which is not a supporting crack , but it is repaired and reinforced.



Some more of the reinforcement and repair



some more reinforcement




the front facing side of the first image , the major repair crack.



This is after today , 1st coat of white finally went on , after a few bouts of primer and wet sand to smooth it.





Tomorrow a little wet sand for a little over spray , then another coat of white . and wetsand , then clear coat.

keep in mind i am also doing this when it is far too cold to be doing this. i am baking the bumper useing a heat gun ...... not the best way to do this. but since i am in a competition with father time , and mother nature .

i want this on for the winter.

So thats where i am at. when i have the clear coat on and the lip and grill oni will take a few more pictures to show.
