It's the section around the rear window thats the hardest to remove, it can crack very easily as you have to bend it slightly to get it free from the window.

Waiting to order the bits I need to trim those plastics...  today would have been the perfect day with the sun out tho.

  Been getting the engine in shape..  but cant decide yet if I'm going for more red hoses?  This is it now...

 

  and this is my attempt at drawing them on!  :lol:  thinking more could work...  but it could be over kill..  :?:

hey gttboost,your car just keeps gettin better every time i see it 8)  8) gonna look sweet with the retrim,i think you should go for the hose kit,it really finishes off the engine bay and there much better than the originals dont want a split hose after all that work :wink:

Thanks baz,

I am hearing you with it finishing the engine bay..  its just a fine line to not go over kill..    :?:   I think I will go for it..  can always try and see..  if it looks like a explosion in a samco factory I'll just take a few off  :lol:

 Hey blueredblue,  you get the carbon supplied cut to shape but without any fixings, you can then either screw them in or any way you prefer..  but they fit perfectly and finish the doors off nicely.

 Thanks for ur comments mate  8)

go for red fella, :wink:  but then again black would look good aswel, like you said may as well pay money to look different. keep your other ones you take off just in case 8)

if you do decide to go back to black then look on the bright side its easy to sell red hoses then black ones :wink: sorted :P

O one more thing just been reading your build and your car is MINT! in that condition il be scared of driving it or having a old lady driver behind me :?  :lol:
