Is the sunstrip on the outside?
I quite liked the eyelashes made her look feminine But she does look good now though (y)

A bit too feminine for my liking, I didn't want to be driving around in a car that looks too girlified.:LOL:

Yes, the sunstrip is fitted to the windscreen exterior. It's fitted in 2 parts, background strip first, then lettering text overlayed on top. The finish is completely flush, so no probs with any scoring from wiper blades.(y)

looking good seems to give it a better stance, more aggressive look (y)
Thanks lazybones, one odd thing I noticed about having the cat lowered, is it creates an optical illusion when viewed from the side & seems to accentuate the length of the car, which is quite long to begin with.

The graphics seem to compensate for that somehow & make it appear more compact & as you say, more aggressive, losing the slight 'stretched' look.(y)

Looks a lot better without the eyelashes mate. Ride height looks good now the springs have settled too.(y)

Looks much better in the sunshine Mark - the graphics somehow look a bit wider. I think that perhaps the eyelashes detracted from the main graphic a bit but I must say - that is looking cool now Bro (y)

It's not something i would do myself, but the more i see it the more it suits your car Mark. A bit like one of them songs you hate when you first hear it, then it grows on you,and you just can't stop humming it :confused:
Looking good, you did right, and THAT sunstrip!!!


MMMM...GORGEOUS!..

Thanks guys, I'm much happier with her look now :)& it does take a bit of getting used to TBF.(y)

Thanks Iain(y), it was good to get everyone's feedback with the lash effect...........not that I needed much help in making the decision to ditch 'em, but it echoed my own thoughts too.:yesnod:

You're right she looks much better now & thanks for that buddy, all she needs now are some kick-ass tips sticking out her ass!:ihih:

Thanks Al, you were spot on with your advice mate, throw the lot on & peel off if it doesn't suit afterwards.(y)

As for the sunstrip, brilliant mate(y), you pulled another (sun) blinder there:D........I'm well happy what with her lowered stance & yes, the graphics do take some getting used to, but the more used I get, the more I'm liking the look she's adopting.:)

Spot on mate, low is very cool.
Cheers Rik, thanks to you & a bunch of top guys mate.(y)

Nice idea that Sun-strip have toyed with the idea myself (Halfords do a silver strip) but never quite got the feeling on it, but now several owners cars I've seen have them so its working on me. (y)
