Hi Marc

Welcome, lovely looking Mini you have there and we have similar rear lights too. My next purchase is going to be the halo's still got the blinging bug.

Coastal colour matched my arches for me with fantastic results, really changed the look of the car, they also lowered him (not at the same time though), you can check out the pics in the Gallery on here which shows the difference. Bit of a trek to get to them they are in Morecambe North of Blackpool, took us around 5 hours to get there so a long long day but worth it.

If you do go tell Carl I sent you Wink

I've got some of the Chemical Guy's stuff Marc, you're more than welcome to give some a try to see if you like it before you get colour coded Wink

Hmmm! I am still not sure! I think you would need to keep it really clean to make it work!! And no offence Moley (Wink), cleaning is not your strongest suit! :p

The whole of Clapham has had every road resurfaced Very Happy properly too, no hole filling! Amazing roads now! not a hole in sight!

Anything will be easier than cleaning the black plastic! So what are you suggesting Vicks, DS or B?

I'm glad it's your choice rather than mine Moley, it's a difficult one to make geek, they both look really nice.

I do like the car pictured at the top of this page though thumbs up

Seeing the photo at the top (DS / DS arches) compared to the gloss black i think the gloss black looks a bit on the cheap side where as the DS / DS looks like a better finish to the car as a whole ....

Moley are you getting the JCW bodykit when you do this or is it staying with the S skirts etc - as that would determine my decision too - i just think if you are not going to get the JCW body kit there will be large chunks of gloss black on the door sills and front bumper (at the bottom) whereas with the JCW bodykit its slithers of gloss back Question

DS / DS me thinks Vics look the business when she had Jack 8)

This is a decision that won't be made for a while, and its ££ dependant, but looking at the prices, its not cheap to buy the JCW kit and get it CC - but its not that cheap to get all the CC done for arches and skirts.....I will have to think about it - May end up buying bumpers bit by bit 2nd hand when they come up?
