    Atlantis Blue 5 Door

    Hey guys, thought I'd show you what I've got.

    I picked the car up from ebay with the tigra alloys already fitted with new kumho tyres, 59k on the clocks, long MOT and full service history back in february











    Here it is a few weeks ago after fitting some M3 mirrors and wiper arms, debadging the doors, back to blacking the bumpers and giving it a clean:

    you cant really debadge the front bumpers on these but yea i think i might do the back. the problem with the bumpers is i dont really have the time to spray one up and finding an atlantis blue one will be near impossible

    how easy will it be to change the springs myself? i dont really have much experience so wouldnt want to mess it up. how much do garages usually charge for changing springs????

    yea one of them has a broken bracket but should be relatively straight forward to fix. il look into flat blades, hadnt really thought about them before?!

    UPDATE

    Right well i'm thinking of getting some front aero flat wiper blades cos i need new blades anyway.

    I've found a different set of angel eyes, still black ones but better condition. should be getting them for ?40 plus p&p

    I'll try and get some new pics up this weekend when i should have fitted the new pressed plates and maybe given the bumpers a doing over with the heat gun.

    I need opinions on side repeaters. I'm not sure whether to get smoked or crystal ones:

    Smoked: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_2226wt_1165

    Crystal: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ht_2226wt_1165

    I'd say clear with atlantis blue.

    And I'd be very interested to see pics of it after treatment with the heat gun!

    yea il get some pictures up before and after using the heat gun, once ive done the 'after' that is lol.

    i like the crystal ones too, but if im getting black angel eyes then maybe smoked ones will go more with the general theme?!

    But you don't have anything else 'gray' on the car, so smoked might look out of place? If you could get darker ones, or I'm sure I've seen black lenses on ebay, then they might look better. But otherwise I'd still say go for the clear ones.

    I knew I'd seen some somewhere! If you're getting black angel eyes then maybe something like this would look better.

    I only picked the first ones to show as an example. I'm sure there are cheaper ones.
