I used Carbon Collective stuff, their Lustre Metal Polish. It's great stuff! They also do a sealant, so next time I'm gonna get all the tiny bits of pitting off too, polish them up and seal them.

All dishes sanded

Going to be a while before I start the next step because I will need some lows before I can put the wheels on anyway. So that's next, then get the wheels all finished up!

Liking the progress with this so far mate!

I have the same rear lights as you but haven't fitted them yet. Have you managed to find a way around the LHD/RHD issue with them?

Euro plate delete today, got that horrid thing off my front bumper, only to find that someone has drilled loads of extra holes in my bumper!

Plan is to get all but 2 holes filled (the 2 I need to hold my plate on) or else possibly make/buy a hinge to clip in under the front lip so I can fully smooth my front. Suggestions?

Before:




After:









Still needs a clean under the bracket but will clean it all up next time I clean the car.

Cheers.

Not been that busy on the car recently, been pretty hard at work and had a holiday to pay for so only got a few things sorted.

No progress on the wheels...

Hatch pop kit arrived and is installed (video to come shortly).

Carbon fibre badges came... not real. And not sure I like them, but not installed yet.

Otherwise just gave her a clean. Enjoy.











Cheers.

Few pics over the last few days if anyone hasn't seen my instagram.

Put my BBS CH on just until I got the stock wheels sealed with Carbon Collective Platinum Wheels. It's a really hydrophobic coating, and just sheets water, looking forward to putting it to the test.

Also am I right in saying black wheels on a black car has just become really outdated?

Tail lights for sale

Well it's been a long time since anything has really happened. Work has been pretty busy, and I have some professional exams coming up, but amongst it all I got a promotion so that means I have a bit more cash to splash, but not a whole lot.

Anyway, I got rid of the sub I had previously, which was a 12" Pioneer champion series, just in and standard ported box, which was taking up some room so I decided to sell that and get a 10" Pioneer to replace it, along with a semi stealth enclosure which fits in the side of the boot.








The box is pretty well built, and looks the ticket. Only problem is it doesn't fit around one of the seatbelt anchors in the boot, which I assume are welded straight to the chassis and can't be removed? (I haven't looked into it yet). So if that's the case I will need to take a small bit off the box to get it to fit.

The sub doesn't fit normally either, hence why it was inverted, but it should take me an hour or so to sand down the inside of the box a bit to get it to fit. Shouldn't cause any major problems anyway.

The other big purchase was genuine VW LED rear lights, the non-smoked version. I had the smoked R tails and they were just too dark for my liking, plus the quality of the Depo reps are nothing compared to genuine, I was shocked at the difference in quality. Got them quite cheap too since the Euro rate is quite low











Hopefully have these fitted soon. I'm in the middle of studying for exams so I want to get those out of the way first

Then afterwards it will be on to finally finishing my wheels.

Cheers.
