The way i did it was i bought a new bonnet then cut the plates and had a play about with it till i got the look i was happy with! I got a body shop to do the filling and spraying tho!

They aren't the rubber things you get off ebay that you glue onto the calipers are they?

bit of black mesh in the front bumper would look nice too, keeping with the black/white theme but also making the front

end not look so "empty"

what colour are you spraying your car btw? you must have sum money to through about as im sure that paintjob is still mint

on the car to this day!! :(

The 'honda' on the calliper is a heat resistant sticker designed for brakes! As for upgrading the discs im going to put drilled and grooved discs when it needs em but the brakes are only a few months old! Iv got mesh for the bumper but its stainless not sure wether to spray it black?? The car is going white again but going brighter this time like BMW white and its having white metal flake in the lacquer. Ha ha i wish i had a lot of money mate but the wife drains most of it lol ! Ye the car was mint but wanted to go to that next level and make something totally different and im happy with the look the car has now!! Cheers for all the comment btw guys. The body shop told me it should be finished in about 4 weeks so hopefully ther will be a lot of progression updates and pics in the next few weeks...
