Hi I didn't do it myself a local company that does my wrapping done it . It cost me 40 quid for the lot that's head and tail lights fogs third brake light and reflectors at a guess I'd say it's rather hard to do but if your patient I can't see why it can't be done . You can buy the kit off the website but to be fare for the price I paid it was worth getting them done

Not sure what your getting at only one I can see is the load liner and net just not taken a picture of that

ok it was that and something mentioning about roof vinyl but was a pic of the front of the car.
also wasn't sure about "painted the front bumper and polished the back out of it", was your car not having a red bumper to start with?
never mind. just thought it would have been good to make it a little clearer as its always great to see what people have done. its just a little confusing to read :)

Mk1 splitter looks good, think apart from key mod, that will be my first mod. Car looks great.
