Yes, if its too close when the kit is fitted thats the next option, my base car is on standard springs so I might get away with it.

Belt and braces, two of the captive bolts on the double skinned bonnet and boot lid were loose after transit, all now glued and set in place.

I've now got a choice of grills, and for those of us on a low budget I have found black plastic mesh used on two of these grills, I have stainless mesh but I don't think it will look right on the rear vents, so I will use this. The mesh is lightweight its called gutter mesh and its 1 a roll at Poundland of all places, looks as good as ally mesh but will not corode.

Hi Tony. Grills are looking great, when are your panels going on?

Did you consider chicken wire, as this guy did? I kid you not....

Ha, have looked all sorts, best fun was the local scrap yard, but the Poundland stuff is good, I used MG steel mesh on the front three vents, its painted but will rust one day and the stanless on the round vents was 12 and it is heavy. Looks good but so does the plastic.

Genuine 250 GTO, hence the badge, must be a very rich chicken farmer I guess...

Bought it on Ebay from duncanjoes he has others at 25 +1.99 p&p, eg. LIG XXXX, ERZ XXXX and CXZ XXXX, there is a contact number so there may be other cheap ones, they also have more expensive ones, but I just wanted a cheap dateless plate, both my other cars have cherished plates bought direct from the DVLA years ago, even they have gone up in value.
