It's in 2 parts.
Big letters say:
"Stu and Tolly on tour - Paris or bust."

The small letters at the bottom say:
"No hairdressing equipment left in vehicle overnight."
Then on one end is some scissors with a line through them. Then on the other end the same but with a comb.  :-) :-) :-)

Stu.. you need this in your life. . Excuse the rubbish quality I did it on my phone



I think it will tie the back end in nicely to the hardtop and give more purpose to the inserts mate. It's something I've always liked about the rear of mine as it's kind of a diffuser style look if that makes sense?

OK, so it took me a while to realise what you had done there Danny!   s:oops: :oops: s:oops:    s:oops: :oops: s:oops:    s:oops: :oops: s:oops:    s:oops: :oops: s:oops:  
Makes a change for someone to edit one of my pictures.  s:lol: :lol: s:lol:   s:lol: :lol: s:lol:

I do like it. I had wondered about doing it on the front too. There is a chap on SC that has done it, but his is lowered and has spats and stuff.

I think I am going to need to 'shop it when the roof is down too. As the HT is only on during the colder months.

Deffo given me something to think about chap.  :-) :-) :-)

See.. There you go stu it's obviously a nice subtle mod if even you didn't notice it. Makes it look a bit more modern I think as alot of new cars have taken this route. It looks nice I reckon  s:) :) s:)

As long as I don't have to take the bumper off do wrap/plasticote it then it may well be an option for the summer.  :-) :-) :-)

I say do the surround black stu. It will still look awesome with the soft top on. It was my first ever mod doing mine black and never looks out of place no matter what colour car you have. If you are thinking of mirrors I have a great condition set sat here  s;) ;) s;)  there green but at least you can swap them back over if you have 2 sets lol

There may not be enough time left in the universe... I mean, it has taken me 18 months + to do the heated mirrors. Can you imagine how long painting would take??!?!  s:lol: :lol: s:lol:   s;-) ;-) s;-)

So in relation to me posting this thread. I have chosen some Proxes 4 in 195 40 17. Which on my 7" rims look like this...



These are the dunlops that came off...



Note the small shoulder of inner side wall that still remains. So I asked them to double check the geometry just for piece of mind.



You can see that my tracking on the nearside front is out. However, the offside tyre as shown above is starting to go in the same way, just not as serious. So it has all been reset now.  :-) :-) :-)

I also double checked my offsets as I had forgotten them. I am running at ET40, so 5mm under stock.

Looks like I'll need to sort the geo out on my nearside, it's wearing faster but not as bad as yours!

Yes, I made sure I bought it at the same time.

I was impressed how quickly the xerapol brought up the lights actually.
