    Thanks all :)

    bumper fitted last night - It was going dark so i had to call it a night so 1 wheel arch still needs to be replaced and clipped in properly, but my god, she looks decent now :)

    Yes mate, fits like a glove :)

    The alloys are plasticoted!! Found some cheap in a local shop and thought id give it a go, no sure about the durability yet and i want to lacquer them some more but well happy with the colour

    I was so disheartened with the car with its bumper hanging off and it looking like a right shed but iv fell back in love now :D

    NS wheel arch sorted out, power sounder removed and killed in a bucket of water [​IMG]

    Looks bloody brill, apart from there is still a 10CM gap between the bumper and headlights on either side, and iv no idea why, anyone else know whats gwan??

    Aldo have some opel / OPC plate surround on the way, might do away with the irmscher badges to off the grill and the tailgate, not sure though, as i dont think an OPC rear badge will look very OE.

    Also thinking of taking off the window trims and having a go at spraying the chrome black, Im also doing the grill again this weekend as is starting to peel a bit.

    There is a little rubber trim that sits under the headlights exactly where the gap is and it looks like you dont have nay on yours (although could be the photo) so i would look there first

    also you get a foam bit that sits under the headlight across top of the chassis leg/bumper support bar on each side...bumper sits on that which lifts them up
