Looking good mate - but why didn't you repair split in front bumper before spraying it? - stands out like a sore thumb IMO.

Easy repair too!

I stand corrected re my comment about the repainting of the front bunper - but my comment stands re the split in it.

The full car is being resprayed and all repair work is being done then as didn't see point of getting repaired and sprayed glacier white again when it's changing and front bumper is having alot of work with plate recess being smoothed etc. once the air ride is on and I can then see if I need to do any arch modifications to fit my bbs wheels.

On the plus side my rear air bags arrived yesterday. And fronts will be here in around 2 weeks
