No the white one is a micra one i cut and welded shorter, the white paint is just primer :D i was luck with my old one, it popped of easy, not seized atal, and when i put it back on i made shure there was plenty of coppor grease on the pin so it wouldnt seize :D

i moved my pics to a different file on photobucket, and it killed the links, i will try and reboot them.

Washed it yesterday, second time in the 12 months i have owned it, getting to be a habbit :D banged on some black grills, still unsure on them though, may put the chrome ones back on.



sending 4 of my collection of these off for banding monday



been trying to work out to the mm how much of a band to have put in, think im going for 2" front 2.5" rear making them 7" & 7.5" wide with offsets being ET20 front and ET13 rear should poke nicely but not much, mostly flush when the arches get rolled.

also got my decat pipe made up ready to fit

think its just my dodgy camera skills, and the steering wheel isnt straight :D deffo no +camber :D i couldnt live with that hehe
 
Car looks great Hoop, really liking the grilles... They wet the blacked lights off nicely... Reason I did mine...

If you're not to sure on them have you considered adding a bit if APO red into them similar to what I did with mine... Or spray them completely red, like your bottom grilles?

Can't wait to see the banded steels... Is it somewhere local doing that for you? I'm looking to have the rostyles done...
 
Was gonna say, looks alot redder... Wondered what filter you were using... Looks good though, what the dubbers make if it?

Filter? i didnt take these pics, was one of the jeggin and obey cap crew :D looks poo in my opinion, the car is metalic and has a good glittery colour to it, these pics make it look like red oxide. They did like it though, not much choice realy :D

got the grinder out with a nice abrasive on the end and removed the VW logo from the caps, will get the heat gun on them now to bring back the black, or maby get some nissan logos on there.



then i decided to rip out my arch liners, roll the arches, clean out the lower wings and waxoyl paint the lot :D

you can see where the nearside has been rubbing on the inner wing on lock, luckily there is nothing behind this area so i smashed it in with a hammer nicely out of the way :D



rigged this up and folded in the lip after removing the plastic liner. easy to do, but the tool was to big to go all the way around, but did 3/4 of the way, did the last bit with a hammer.





years of dirt built up here, undone the 2 lower 10mm bolts, cleaned it all out and painted in there, luckily no rot there atall.



trusty waxoyl




and banged on a new sticker :D



Also a good bit of news, had a text message from AC Fabrication, my wheels are finished, will be posted back to me monday :D
 
Looking good mate, but no pics of the new arches with the wheels on? o_O:(

Nifty tool that mate, wheres it from? Can't wait to see the new wheels, any ideas when you'll have some rubber on them and get them on the Agent?

Ooh yeah, how big are the centres on those caps? They off a van originally? I got some nice silver and black Nissan badges to go on the Rostyle centre-caps... when I finally get them sorted! :(

Will look the same as before at the moment matey, i havent flaired the arches, just folded the inner lip up out of the way of the tyres. Arch tool is borrowed from a mate, he got it off ebay i think, i sold my old one haha.

The bandeds will be here tuesday, straight to paint then, im hoping to have them on within 2 weeks.

The caps are new from dealers for a mk3 golf or caddy van.

I seen a pic of your wheels friday night, looking forward to seeing them on!!! i now understand how confusing it was when you were trying to explain the center of them for spigots and nuts haha
