The splitter is a fiberglass rep as they went out of business, but it sits over the ledge on the front valance when the bumper is removed. The there are a few tags that can be drilled and poprivited to the valance behind the bumper. Then its just a case of running some tigerseal around any touching edges to stop possible rattles or water puddeling up!

I believe Houndstooth is the "slang" term for it. I'm sure the official name is Cotswold Cloth?

right as our boy davey is a bit p*sspoor with ye olde interweb i thought i'd update a bit for him.... the car has now been painted..... dave fancied a slight colour variation and so it is now "Ford Frost White" (i think same as latest focus RS) with the bonnet and boot being wrapped in white carbon (the boot is done)

Image

Image
^^^ Davey giving it a quick wet wipe down

Image

Image

Image

Image

And finally a front end shot (minus bonnet wrap) of Dave's car along with our friend Spud's cab

Image

Dave will be along soon to jot down his write up and i will try and upload all the WIP pics.

Didn't notice the lack of fuel flap until pic of the boot/fuel pipe. Nice work.

Not too sure on the bumpers or wheels though
