I'd be fuming if i bought something that was 'made to fit/measure/for my car' and then wasn't to have some jerk off parts person tell me..."your doing something wrong"...such a shame you had to 'make it' fit cutting those holes but at least it's done even if the holes arent pretty. At least they refunded you some of the cost too.

Yeap. Gave them a second chance too, cause that's who I am, for better or worse. Stay tuned for what's to come.

Car saw some time at the track, and also did really really well for what it is, especially since it was also my first time at that track. Gave some MX5's a pretty rough time, especially my friend Tom's that recently bought one, a late NB one











Had some serious issues with Oil Temps, had to push for maximum 2 rounds and then cool off for lik 3-4 laps. It was 40o Celcius, and car did not like that at all.





Almost 4 sec slower than me







I had really missed some track time, so will be revisiting soon enough, with this car, or the golf as well.

Also, I wanted to do something about the back side, where having removed the rear seat bench, there was red exposed metal, which i didnt like







Quick visit to my trim shop







Pics dont do it justice, came out great IRL





Also, got around to fitting my oem rear parking sensors on the S-Line bumper i installed

Removal





Said sensors



Installed





Looking great



When I find some time, i will also retrofit them to make them work as well hehe



Cheers, plenty of more to come

Mike

How comes you didn't take the cross rails off for the track day?
