Think it's time I created one of these build threads on here.

Been a member for a while and have spoken to a few of you on here.

I've had the car for 5 years and last year was when I got the bug to mod. I will uploads pics as I find them...

Comments welcome.

this is how it stood for the first few years of ownership.

after a refurb and colour change...

I have tried looking for the seller i bought mine from but can't locate them.

it was a hong kong seller. I bought light black tint and the size was 12"x24". thats enough to cover 1 headlight.

just have a look on ebay and you should find someone selling the same stuff. total cost was under a fiver. hope this helps.
