Looking good Iain. In particular the colour coded 3.2 front bumper.

Did you manage to find a wheel/tyre size combination in IDS to get the speedo reading close?
Drink moderately, eat healthily, exercise regularly, die anyway.

No, I've never been able to raise it higher than the 215/75 in the list or even under the manually set diameter option oh well...

I prefer the bumper fully painted rather than with the sections under the lights still bare plastic.
But having said that, I'm itching to start fabing a new alloy one for myself. Honestly how much of a mess can I really make of something like that

They stick and screw to inner lip, but I've not taken backing off the sticky stuff yet, as wasn't sure about them completely at the time.

Got the spigots from a guy on FB but got him to make them out of 8mm and larger DIA than normal to fit my specific wheels, then drill and screwed to front hub with M6 Allen screws but ended up making my own top hat style for the rear so there's a lip behind the wheel and then a spacer shim for behind the wheel so the bolts clamp the rim face directly to it since the outer shoulder on the rim is a larger diameter than the halfshaft. I should make two more for the front but the rim shoulder sits ok on the hub. So it's not going anywhere even with the punishment it gets from me.
