Your getting your car done from the same place who did mine just last week. I had my bump strips and door handles all colour coded and badges colourcoded too along with some repairs through insurance.

Cant recommend the garage enough though. They do a brilliant job!

Cheers guys,

Only time will tell to see if all this pulls off.

Bloody hell never did i think we would be on the forum chatting about jags bodyshop in Ilford.... to be honest iv seen a few of his cars and they look spot on...thats why i opted to go for him...

Lucky for Tango he can go through insurance...poor sods like me are forking out a bomb!!!

Lets hope they live to full expectations then tango....

Was expecting to see an R32 engine in the car with that thread title! With the bumper and wing off, it would have been a great time to add a FMIC in there!

Yeah thats a fair point mate...ill stick with a revo stage two for now though

But i had a crash on driver side wing so had to get the repairs done along with the mods...but the mods kept mounting and money is getting dreadfully loww.

They rekon i have a split in the intercooler and they have tried welding it so ill see hwo that goes. Did consider the Front mounted one but i was getting quotes of around ?1000 IMO that can wait.

Only planned to go for the conversion as i picked up a original R32 kit for ?600

Then needed the Exhaust, then the wheels, lights, HID kit and to be honest mate i never really wanted to go all out.....

But hey whats done is done.

supposed to be picking the car up today...

from what i know today they have ALOT to do...

  • Spray some panel as they have been primed already
  • Respray the front bumber agaub, as he messed the last one
  • Fit the kit already sprayed and ready to go
  • Fit my Milltek exhaust
  • Fit my HID kit

Correct me if im wrong but these guys have no chance in doing ALL THIS by close of business can they? Especially considering they havent opened up this morning till at least 11am..

Any Expert Bodayshop guys on here that can tell me how long this would take two lads to do and how long should i be waiting fr paint to set?

Ho Ho Ho....Xmas has come early for me!!!

I dont no how they pulled it off but they had the whole kit sprayed and fitted. The HID kit was already done by 1 o clock. Just had to go pick up the wheels and drop em off.

Only problem was that the exhaust wasnt fitted as they were hoping for another garage to do it but there close :(

And apart from a few alignment issues its all looking rather impressive.. i took some pics but it ws kinda dark.

Ill take a few during the day and post them up

One happy bunny!
