That is a body shop, iv told him (the guy in the pic) not to rush and do it between his insurance jobs etc. He's just concerened because my bonnet has a funny dent in it..hard to see silver but will stand out when painted....

I like the look of those, 20" would be good with the body kit. Haven't seen a zed with 20". I'm running 19" on mine.

love the bodywork progress but I'd say no to Wolfrace wheels, surely with this project you need either BMW or BBS wheels :-D

I thought long and hard about that, and the fact that I'm not going for an oem look means I can actually go for what suits my taste and the car best rather than be shackled by bmws ideas. So I don't mind what make the wheels are, as long as they look and perform great :)

Each to their own and all :thumb: ,... I have an aversion to Wolfrace Wheels TBH, largely because I've seen numerous battered examples on many a 'Chav-Car' over the years.

Is it new leather or did he just re-colour them?

I've always wanted to get one of his scuffmaster kits but never got round to it, seen some amazing results from his work and from others using the products he sells. Most of the seats come up looking brand new 8-)

Ha, nearly there with the apples - was it golden delicious?. It's the one shot in a Bugsy Malone style, everyone is sat in a rather dapper 'speak-easy' when the cops / baddies turn up, at the press of a button the table tops all lift up into the ceiling leaving a rather dirty looking bar. When the cops leave the button is pressed and magically the old dirty room turns into a plush environment again. SORT OF like your seat transformation if you have a warped mind like me :colourful: :D

My minds a bit 'stretched' sometimes :lol:

I guess it was more to do with just seeing the before and after pics (of the seats) so quickly one after the other - obviously you didn't experience that in the same time-frame.

They have definitely had an 'extreme make-over' :shock: and turned out for the better 8-) .
