Quick update, finished wiring up the foglights, which took much longer than it should of thanks to an un co-operative FM seller.

The heritage green pressure pack got a work out, colour coding the EL grille and number plate surround. Also resprayed the black fins of the grille.

For shits and giggles, but two green led neon tubes on my boot lining which are connected to my amp so they flash on and off with the subwoofer.

Cheers.

It's been almost 6 months and a couple of little changes:

Got 2 new front rotors/pads done. 2 rear pads and full brake flush and bleed. New exhaust tips.

Also just got the car back from the bodyshop, got a new front bar and the lip got repaired. (apparently the front lip is no longer available?!? so they had to repair the thing!)

Also got an area on the bonnet, drivers side mirror and the spoiler (full) repainted. The clear coat had began to bubble in those places, so i addressed it to stop it from hopefully getting worse.

The work was done at "Bocchino European Technology" in Moonah, which i highly recommend for anyone in the area. I will be using them again and recommending them to my family and friends.

Car also got detailed after the repairs by the bodyshop and the car is in the best condition for quite a while! Falling in love with it again :)

Nice work mate, looking pretty shmick!!. Heritage green shows up beautifully after a good detail hey 8-)

I always thought that front lip could be found aftermarket. I know over here there is a few places that do fibreglass copies.

Cheers, sure does!

Didn't think about after market, the repairer must have just tried the local ford dealer. They did a pretty good repair job though, so all is good.

Aftermarket copies are definitely available, these guys do them for a start: http://www.awcinfo.com/

No idea on quality though. The car looks great, we need better pics though!

Ahh interesting, thanks for that! Costs almost as much as the new original front car cost from memory though, ouch.

Thanks! Yeah apologies about the crappy pics, will try and get a decent camera next time.
