    Exhaust Acousti-fil stuff

    Can't remember 100% but if the old grey matter is correct it was twice loosely round the perforated tube to allow for expansion but this might be more help https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.textiletechnologies.co.uk/attachments/download/download/%3Fd%3D0%26file%3Dcustom%2Fupload%2FFile-1452689260.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwj6jcfS2drbAhVbF8AKHb1rDKUQFggcMAA&usg=AOvVaw1QtbjztfcssQ8jitKpFTyc

    Paint colour

    Presuming only the bonnet s painted and the rest of the car is in gell coat , in my opinion it will be almost impossible to get the exact colour match due to the difference in what your eyes are actually seeing with gel coat your looking at a more transparent but deeper surface of coating while with paint it's a thinner but more opaque coating . It might be worth trying to get a second hand bonnet but even gel coat changes from batch to batch plus it depends on how the colour has faded . How old is the car ? If it is Quite new you might get a match . But an exact match is also unlikey and what improvement it would be on your current bonnet you would only know when you fit. would you consider some graphics to distract the eye from the difference in shade? And to draw your eye away ?

    kitcardirct rear arches

    So after posting the above I sent one more email and got a response from kitcardirect. They have now pulled the arches of their website and have offered a small refund as a good will gesture . And are continuing to follow it up with the suppier. So i have received some customer service . The wings were posted direct from the manufacturer so I do have some understanding in there predicament . On a plus note I now love how gel coat polishes up and can't wait until all the dirty jobs are over and I can get the car clean. I just whish I had got my original white arches painted locally to get round the lead time . Anyway as the cars going back together quite nicely I am not going to let it spoil all my hard work . A couple more days and then is just a couple of week Waite for my carbon nv aero screen and hopfuly back on the road

    kitcardirct rear arches

    So no response from kitcardirect and checking the website the parts are back up as forsale without any amendments to the wording . Very disapointing customer service. One company to be best avoided in my opinion

    kitcardirct rear arches

    So having received the rear arches the quality is shockingly poor . Scratches and chips everywhere having complained to kitcardirect they contacted the supplier who came back with they are for track cars only and not up to car road standard, and I have been offered a full refund . The Issue is I can't wait 6 weeks for Westfield to make a new set so have asked for a small discount towards a set of rear arch protectors to cover the worst of the marks. I did spend about 2hrs hand polishing out the worst of the marks on each side which has made a huge improvement . Disapointly I have not had a reply from my last email and it appears that they are no longer interested as I have decided to keep them. Kitcardirect have removed this item from their website. The only plus point is that the arches are about half the weight of genuine arches. So if your chasing weight savings on a track car then theses could be a good option . If anyone wants to know who the original supplier is then pm me and I will give you the company details directly as I guess the price will be even lower correct from the manufacturer . Plus the original suppier is well regarded on this forum and I suspect it' been a genuine mistake so I don' want to run anyone down . The old adage of buy cheep buy twice comes to mind

    Ecoboost for sale 229bhp SOLD

    As said on Facebook 14/15k would be a fair price to ask sure it will sell very quickly
