New Look

Hi all,

OK, took advantage of the sun this weekend and thought I'd start playing with the front bumper. I took the two spot lights out, sheared a couple of bolts even after using WD40 and working it in to the thread.
I've replaced the drivers side spot with a cover which is ported. I'm going to match this up with the original air inlet to the filter but need to do a bit more wotk yet.
The passenger side spot has been replaced with a smooth cover and then I moved the number plate, Evo style.
I still need to remove the plastic centre grill so I can replace it with some nice mesh but ran out of time yesterday.
I've also started to remove the two centre lights from the headlight conversion, which will also be air ducts.
Plan is for the car to remain silver with body kit, spoilers, headlight trims, bonnet and front two scoops all being black. The intercooler vent will stay silver for a bit of contrast.

I'm trying to post the picture I took but can't seem to work it out at the moment, hope to have it on soon.

Matt

Yeah, I've got the outer lights set up as normal and main beam now. Found a cheap duct set in Halfrauds that I'm going to use. Has a length of hose and two blue trumpets, which I'm going to sink in to the light opening.
Going to try to keep the blue theme with some Samco hoses.
