Did you do the stitching yourself? Or did you buy them

Well today i had a few teaser shots of the work that is being carried out by Custom Cars. He said that the results would be like day and night and he was right.

The colour and texture from previous.



The new colour 'Mora Individual' and the new smooth texture.





Also the new badges that are going on from a friend



Kick sills



The light plastic rubber was purple and going back to black.



To say im well happy is an understatement...

Thanks for looking

Well today was alittle epic, pulled the car out and gave it some TLC that was needed, big thankyou to Dips and Bruno for pointing me in the right direction with using the DA polisher.

Here is a few pics of the paintwork prior to starting, it just had a wash yesterday, if you look at the paint especially the boot you will see the scratches and marks.







A coupe of the mirrors, iv had the inserts and a small ring colour coded, Mora.





The wing grills, again with a Mora twist and the new badges



The new Mora rounels



A couple of the kidney grills with the twist





a few of the paintwork after the DA and polished, just needed sealing







Looking down the side....







The wheels, fresh powder coat with the twist









Few of the engine













Lastly a few reflections in the garage under artificial light, it normally shows loads of scratches.











Tomorrow i will finish the interior and catch a few from there, thanks for looking.

Well today i carried out a caliper service stripping the pistons out ect.... It picks up again like a train now. That makes me a happy boy again...

So i gave her a quick wash and took a few picks in the sun.

Started to clean it all for next week,





















A closer one of the wheel, when the sun is on it, it flips and you can see but its crap to take a picture.. lol

Thankyou for your kind words, a friend of mine Dips from Custom Cars did the work.

The guy has had loads of features in PBMW and knows his trade inside out.

Lots more to come as well.
