Tourer "facelift"
« on: 10 September 2018, 12:44:28 »

a few pics of the Tourer





the sharp eyed amongst you may notice my unusual bonnet release and the more obvious colour coded pre-facelift mirrors courtesy of Lidl rim spray paint and lacquer  ;D
and you can use your original headlamps and hockey stick mouldings if you choose too. :y

Very nice  :)
so you replaced the ribbing strips on the doors and painted the rubber strip under the bumper too ?
is there a gap where the n/s h/lamp meets the wing ,or is that an optical delusion  :-\

Looking at that, fit facelift lights and trims. Then your bonnet should close properly.  :y

The headlight and don't fit correctly between the bumper and bonnet.

Also, facelift mirrors and tail lights would finish it off a treat.  ;)

Looks clean though 8)

Rubbers and bonnet latch require adjustment, sitting too low.

Also bumper brackets need a tweak both on the crash bar and the chassis rail mounts.

What crash bar is fitted? hopefully a facelift one...

Any pics of where the headlights meet the front panel?
