    Couple of additions. Had a new exhaust fitted. Went for the toyosport one and it's sounds mint, can't get enough of it. Also had the front bumper resprayed and fitted the maxton design front splitter and side skirts, aswell as spraying the bottom grill. c63471a2b4e8f292daef039760b07489.jpg

    Nice mate. Good to see it back to full health and still getting some love.

    Let's see the skirts too!

    Looking very good mate. I like the subtle look compared to the Renault ones. Also much prefer the gloss black over the textured plastic. Car is looking great.

    Cheers pal. Went for these cause I don't really like the bit at the back of the renaultsport ones. And they're cheaper

    They don't cover the jacking points. But they do make it too lo for the jack to go under so I have to drive on to pieces of wood

    Looks great! Really like the subtle look of the Maxton splitter and skirts. The only detail I dislike is the logo on the splitter.

    I'd agree but there's a square where the sticker goes so if I took it off I think it'd look a bit weird.

    Have you a closer up image of the side skirts? They do look really good. Are they a good fit as I'd read previously about fitting issues with the Maxton products. Do the screw on or how do they fit?

    I'll get a couple of better photos later on. In the middle of polishing it ready for Saturday at the minute. They come with self tapping screws and glue to fit them. They fit really well I thing because they even have little cut outs for where the jacking points are.

    Cool! Just interested to see how they look in another few photos before I decide either way :smile:

    Look forward to seeing more photos :smile:

    2 days prepping for fcs. Not bad for a 10 year old car

    That would have done well in the reflections photo of the month thread!

    Hopefully will get a look at this on Saturday. Interested to see the new bits in the flesh.
