    Hoping to do a few more bits n pieces in the next week or so.

    Although I've just redone the hubs and calipers, I intend to get the wheels off again, re do the hubs stock silver ( 2nd coat will look much better ) and then repaint my calipers in
    Ferarri Rosso Red ( probably be 2 coats at least I'd think )

    I have the R grille badge as per my sons X type below, just adds a little colour and intrigue, changing out the front std Black growler to a nice Red one to match the colour scheme



    Should look something like this ( on my sons X type ) when finished although the wheels will be different of course...lol




    Then on Friday booked in for rear window tints, which again should look similar to my sons X type ( shown below ) The car will be just a little bit bigger, that's all



    Cost....
    Window Tints 120
    R grille badge 49.50
    Red Growler badge 40
    Red wheel centre caps 44
    Red caliper paint 8

    Then another coat of Poorboys blackhole prior to the Crieff distillery meet Sun 7th June

    I believe the Audi boys are going late May as always?
    It's usually a great meet event, any of you guys going??

    I would be ashamed to turn up in my A6 now the wife's had it for a year, it's nowhere near the same car

    Looks nice. Perhaps go for a slightly lighter tint? I think a lighter tint gives it a bit more class but thats only my opinion. Enjoy.

    Ok so today, wheels off again and repainted my hubs n calipers AGAIN...lol
    Hubs redone stock silver, 2nd coat looks much better


    Calipers - opted for Ferarri Rosso red, this was the 2nd coat and a massive improvement, also added the red wheel centre caps, lovin it!













    Contacting Prestige on Tuesday when Dougies back, looking to go in for a 4 wheel alignment, Red growler badge, R badge fitted and then tinted windows on Friday.....


    Really pleased I had the guts to go for the red in the end as I really love the look.
    Thanks

    Well, called in to Prestige Jaguar today to get my 4 wheel alignment done, now runs straight n true, all good [IMG]http://www.************.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_dance-tap.gif[/IMG]
    Also got them to supply and fit a Red Growler grille badge, really looks nice, maybe a little meaner [IMG]http://www.************.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_steer.gif[/IMG]
    I also took an R grille badge with me which they fitted at the same time.....

    Going to try and do a little more work on the paintwork and take some pics over the weekend hopefully.

    Lastly - went in to see Mr Tint about my window tinting, totally bummed to find out that as I have rear laminated glass they can't tint them[IMG]http://www.************.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_wub.gif[/IMG]
    Oh well..
    The upside - told them about the meet in Crieff coming up shortly and negotiated a 120 window tint voucher!!
    All good
