you could get the mileage altered electronically at a garage if it bothered you :cheers:

 

Its never bothered me :thumb: only thing when i come to sell the car, but the change in dials was documented.

 

After a little "incident" down london :vangry: got nice new rubber on the back, very grippy!

Yup def more comfy, more figure hugging!

 

looking good,, but that handbrake looks a wonky angle X(

 

Matey its a late model finesse the handbrake is a different shape to the early mk6, so is at the right angle :thumb:

 

Think will leave the stickers on, though they were cheeky putting their advertising on rather then the proper viper one!

Thought i'd add some pics while i'm "relaxing"

 

Took my bumper off a few wks back, was a little grubby! (using auto glym bodywork shampoo, super resin polish and gloss protection)

cleaned the back whilst my bumper was off:

Had my lights out to seal them in properly as were giving a slight leak so cleaned around them to:

Got some genuine spats off ebay, £20 posted (some one here laughed at moi when i offered him £20!)

Took the bumper off and attached the spats with it off

was alot easier to do this with the bumper off. Used Tiger seal and a single bolt on the inside then the genuine clips underneath. (Thanks for your advice Rob! (bluliz) :thumb: ). Using Genuine spats the fit wasnt as amazing as i thought it was as i think my bumper was a fraction warped on the bottom!

 

clipped them on whilst the sealant dried and let them over night:

They look nice when fitted:

Added some new mudflaps, as the genuine ford ones i had no longer fit, they were cheap and i liked the colour! ( thanks Chris!)

How a clean bumper looks!

Thanks. They were cheap! and do the job 8o

 

I was lucky enough to find a set in silver, ( £20 iff ebay) as my painting of metalic paints isnt brilliant!
