7 out of 10! Should've done the mesh in silver, and taken your photo's from the sunny side!

From behind it looks pretty good, quite a fan of the GT spoler.....the door handles should be the same colour as the rest of the car.....and I reckon you should have invested in a fairmont bonnet, only put the GT scoop and not the flares on it (without the aqua green), and dug up an original GT grille from somewhere as they can be picked up relatively cheap secondhand if you can find one.
Apart from that, not too bad

It's pretty full on. Having said this, if i were a p plater in victoria i'd be focusing on looks too and waiting before doing the motor.

The kit itself is nice, makes the car look tough. Dont like the blue mesh at all, but there ya go. I'd hate to think what all this must have cost you?!?

5 speed conversion appears to have been overlooked by many. That's some good work.

As for what it needs..... PSI ;)

Jeez that front bar looks familiar, where'd you get the idea for that ? :P

I agree with the others, the aqua coloured mesh looks s**t, and you're the second person I've seen do it with that front bar/scoop! Did the guy supply aqua mesh or did you both just paint it that colour ??
The silver colour coding tends to make the front bar look deeper than mine - but I prefer it all one colour (likewise with the door handles) The silver 2 tone could have come out looking worse though, so it's not tooo bad.

You need to do something with the grill, it looks terrible.
This is the sort of thing I'm playing with at the moment, which I don't think looks too bad.

I like the millenium rear bar! bit hard to see the skirts and other detail, as already said get some better, brighter photos.

I find it funny that you were asking me about this kit a while after I got mine, and now a few months later yours is painted and fitted and mines still sitting in primer :lol:

what he said.
I think it looks real nice, but is there a way you can join your GLi grille to this new bumper? would look a lot better imo.

Too late now! The GT grille is moulded as part of the front bar so once it's gone it's gone.

darkstrangr thank god you didn't put the gt grill on, they look sh@t, but the mesh would look good if you painted it to match the rest of the car, apart from that the rest of the kit looks great!!
