Top work with the grill mate.. Looks good. Think you were right to chop out as much as you did, and like the way the H sits in the front. 

 

Thanks mate

Grill looks sweet mate, and you've deffo done a good job of it! Really changes the look of the front, much more modern/aggressive. Liking that a lot!

 

Thanks boss

I had the mot done. Only advisory was cv joints on both sides so had them replaced.

Went to a local car meet after that. There was one other VTIS there but I couldn't park with it to take a picture.

Next I found some de-chromed headlights from a breaker not far from me. I had to get them. Old ones out applause.gif1IMG_20180913_062559_632.jpg

 

New ones in. Look so much better with these. Wish I could get projectors for a decent price as I would love to have a set

Like I said before I tinted the side lights yellow to match the fogs

Looks so clean! The dechromed headlights always go well on pirates black, looks sweet! And nice one on the MOT, she's in great health!

 

Ps: we need to see this over on Future Classic Cars!

Should've whipped out the resonator box while you had the bumper out :wink:

Thanks mate. Yes I wish they had put de chromed headlights as standard on VTI and VTIS as standard like the Accord Type R. Look thousand times better than chrome. I will definitely have a look at the other forum

I thought about it mate but then I thought there is an induction kit and the pipe isn't connected anyways to it. Do you think it would still make some difference?

Liking the mods mate! I like the dechromed headlights, if a set came up near to me I'd go for them. And of course look good on the black. Yellow lights too. Looks cool. :-D

Not really :-D I mentioned it because I spotted the induction kit... It's just that it's an extra bit of gubbins that's not needed anymore ;-)

I suppose taking it out might make a path for air to come into the engine bay, but likely to be such a small effect.

Thanks mate. There is a guide here on the forum. They are not too difficult to do. You just need a good sealant to seal them back properly.

Makes sense. I will rip it out next time the bumper is off :-D

Next update. Got fed up of dirty white wheels all the time so I decided to do something different with them. So I got a couple of cans of Pirates Black from my local paint shop and the results were amazing :x

This time I decided to go slightly different for the stickers so I ordered chrome gold H stickers. These are much brighter than normal ones and look really nice

IMG_20180930_152200_799.jpg

 

Go perfect with the gold calipers :x

Look at that flip :x

Just took this one to compare the difference between the two colours. Black definitely looks much more aggressive

All done. Love it

I've just been doing exactly the same thing, refurbing the wheels on the mx5! I went the opposite way though, wheels are now where! Lol 

That purple flip is amazing mate. You must be getting quite handy with the rattle fans as it's usually difficult to get the flip from a can. Finish looks sweet and love the mirror gold H's, goes perfect with the calipers! Top job!
