Did you smooth the strips out yourself? also where did the black front bumper come from?

I did do the strips myself. It was going well until I had an accident with the front bumper, kinda snapped it. I got the black coupe front bumper from ebay, 30 Smile

- MeisterR superlows

The package from Tegiwa is the one on ebay, it contains;

MeisterRs arent on yet, im gunna put them on when we do the swap.... which will take place as soon as I get a new clutch Smile

We are gunna try tuck a few bits, as for the rocker cover, im not sure, I want some proper wheels, so I guess OEM red will do for now Smile
