Gold Assaulted!

Postby axshack » Thu Mar 10, 2022 4:56 am

Recently my car was backed into which badly damaged the front bumper :(
The Cibie lamps were destroyed in the process, so I had to sort out replacements.

This is my solution: Cold air intake funnels with 60mm projector lamps inserted. This allows the air intake to continue to function and provides extra main beam lamps as before.

What do you think?

Looks very smart Dave, and also complements your headlights. I also like your grill, so much better than the original one. Where did you get that made, I wouldn't mind one on my Mk3.

Hi Roy, I got the stainless steel chequer grille material from Car Builder Solutions (I think) and a mate welded the edging for me!
I also got the air intakes and projector lamps from them. They are my go to source of bits to keep my updating programme going !!

I will have a dig around because I am sure I have some of the chequer left over. I will let you know. You can have it if I can find it !!

latest view of repair to the bumper.
I had to replace the Metro indicator lamps for something more modern (Thanks Hans for pointing that out)

As you can see still in primer as I still have to put a new gel coat on before taking it to the printshop
