Progress Thread

Postby Markjohnstonn » Wed May 18, 2011 9:33 pm

Well, this is the start of the progress thread from standard to a little less standard and so on :lol:

Not got much done yet, but in the next week or so a fair few things should be sorted and this will get updated soon as things change.

Current mods: gear knob insert, renault sport stickers to the dash board, changed all door and roof lights to red (changing to green smd's when they arrive) and added 5smd white led sidelights.

Future mods are: mudlfaps, centre consol sticker bomb, calipers painted silver, alloys painted grey to match the car, all scratches fixed, phase 2 rear-lights, lowered 30mm, renault sport door badges, Green footwell led's with switch.

Considering carbon fibre wrapped roof and wing mirrors, does anyone think it'd look good ? had mixed thoughts about it so far :?

Anyway, heres a few pics :D (rubbish quality from my phone lol)

Not too sure about it myself either. Got it for a couple of quid off ebay to put on the boot where the chrome renault sport badge is on the 225, but the sticker was far to big so i just stuck it to the dash :lol:
Any thoughts on how the carbon fibre wing mirrors and roof would look ? :?
50% says it would look good and the other 50% says itd look terrible :lol:

Got some hexis carbon wrapp and did it myself, was fairly easy to do and it's lasted a long time so far without peeling anywhere or anything, so yeah happy with the result, think the wrapp was £10

when you think about considering carbon fibre wrapped roof and winged mirrors, I think it doesn't just look good - It is a cool idea!
