have thought about flat caps but unsure whether they'll look better or not.

spoiler is a fully functional rado wing.

its not permanently up as it looks tongue
just needs bit or work to stop it scratching paint.

Thats a cool idea man /\ sweet
I like how your car works with the nut centre caps actually.. its got a bit more of its own identity if that makes any sense?!

How long has it spent in the bodyshop then dude ??

Manzi

great transformation!

seriously!

thumbs up!

and liking the texture! you should texture the spoiler!

my mate did the rado spoiler n althought they are cool as hell fully functional, im not a fan, but none the less, it looks great1

i've one back to arches to, seems plastic arch trims are IN '09!

if you want any US bits, i can get them, and also a sump guard exactly like mason tech ones but for 100 less!

shout me a holler!

jkeep the good work up tho!
