Been looking at vinyl. Where did you get yours from? Dont wanna order glossy or one that doesnt stand all weather conditions.

Cheers

Nah, Tris your car is hot, but definately looks better with blue badges. Colour codes the whole lot, if you do the handles.

Alright mate!

Have a look in the yellow pages or similar for car sign makers. I got the vinyl (matte) cut and fitted by someone for 17.50 which is a pretty good price. I think it might be a bit fiddly to do yourself.

Red badges are better! The car looked a bit plain with blue badges. The red badges added a nice contrast to the blue and made the back of the car look a lot better after removing the punto badge! And the red badges are just a nicer badge.

In my opinion of course!

Hey dude, any advice on fitting the bulbs? Or where to get them?!
I have stock bulbs which are so in the winter / general driving!

MTEC Sidelights (replaced Philips Blue Vision sidelights)
New Head Unit - Pioneer DEH-P800BT



Front of the car when bought:



Side shot with the side rubber strips:


Rubber Strips Removed:


MTEC Sidelight - Looked a lot better than the Philips Blue vision sidelight:


Painted The Grille Black:



Vinyl the front grille:




As it looks now!


I like what I have done to the car so far, but would like to know what you all think of it, and what I should do to it next! Lowering it will happen, and I want to colour code the door handles but sounds like it could be a complicated Job!


Ash
Any chance of a picture of the bulbs mate? I've got the Philips blue vision and I can't find a close matching sidelight for them. Any pictures of just the sidelights on and then them both together? Would be a great help mate!! cheers
