Afternoon All,

So Matt has been working flat out over the weekend and has now got the rear bumper and diffuser fitting nicely and primed for paint. Just waiting on the black mesh to arrive so I can drop that off for the diffuser. Hopefully it can then get painted ready to re-install once the shell is painted. Then we are on to re-assembly and me getting it back! :) 
 

Check out the work at the rear quarter panels with the carbon lower section of the Ridox panel. Think the cut off and fade looks epic personally. The diffuser is not attached here, just held in place with the trolley jack.

Christ on a bike that’s a lot of work you have completed to date.

Really enjoyed looking through the progress you have made.

I bet your looking forward to getting the car back.

Makes my polish and wax the sills look extremely trivial indeed 😆

Thanks mate, has been a major undertaking for sure, but the results are going to be well worth it.
 

Really looking forward to getting it back, hoping to have it out for some shows later this year. Aim is ‘Go Japan’ at Brands Hatch which is on the 26th September. It has some more work booked and paid for at SRD Tuning, so fingers crossed it comes back from Matt soon. 
 

Any work to help preserve and keep these icons working right and lasting longer is important mate, I’m looking forward to seeing your progress. :)

This is beautiful, very subtle which works well I think. Love the steering wheel too!

Many thanks. :) 

Steering wheel trim arrived yesterday, here’s a sneak peek of it re-fitted and looking amazing! :cool:

Can’t wait to get this installed and the paddles wired up to replace the tiptronic buttons.

Morning All,

Got a nice video from Matt yesterday, he’s painted the rear bumper, door handles and fuel filler flap. :)

Just leaves the diffuser to paint and we should be left with just the shell to paint before re-assembly can begin in earnest. 
 

Really excited now and that colour is sooo nice! :cool:

So another video today from Matt at M H Bodywork, diffuser, mirrors, TRD end pieces all painted and looking lovely. 🙂 

That I believe is all the smaller stuff done now, so only the shell left to paint before we can start re-assembly. Can’t wait!

Love the two tone on the diffuser, pretty sure that’s another unique touch that should really pop when it’s all back together.

Enjoy your weekends all.
