Well just when I thought job done nothing left to do I was very fortunate to be in the right place at the right time to purchase The Holy Grail TTE bumper

I got Zunsport to make up a grille and nipped over to my body shop to discuss the fog lights and took the opportunity to snap a couple of piks

Unfortunately the lights are orange so I'm now on the hunt for white LED's to run as DRL's and the body shop need to do final checks and deep clean

To say the least I'm a happy chappy

Looks smart mate and it will be difficult for the usual suspects to copy.
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

So further update the apertures for fog lights in the TTE bumper are max 50mm I've sourced some 40mm LED's and they are now plumbed in to run as DRL's and dim 50% when main lights are switched on, they actually are quite bright pik was taken in bright sunshine

When just quickly looking at the small pic, before tapping. From that angle. It reminded me of a performance jag. XKR?
Just looked more muscular.
Tiz a nice bumper.
