Hey All,

Just showing the progress of my Astra so far:
- Black OEM Alloy Wheels
- Black Door edge finishes
- Black Rear Emblem
- Black Front Grill (deciding whether to do the front Emblem as well)
- H7 LED headlights
- Rear LED Number plate lights
- True 3D next Gen number plates
- Car Mats

Did you buy the back emblem like that or did you take it off and spray it ?

Interesting, you should definitely get these as well.

Also what LED headlight bulbs did you get and how well they perform?

Hey Connor, its a hit or miss with people but i masked up the area with tape and paper and used Plastidip Black for about three coats. Then I glossified the black to match the paint work.

The H7 led i purchased are NINEO H7 LED Headlight Bulb, CREE XPL Chip, Cool White Conversion Kit 60W 6000K 7,200Lm from amazon.

These will fix that bulb error, but they are pretty big so you might have trouble fitting them into headlight housing.

Just a quick update on the car. Finally gave it a quick clean so took a few picks over the weekend drive to Nottingham. I tried to install limo tints myself but made a real Mess of it.

If anyone wants to DM me prices or know anybody I want to get two jobs done.

1 - limo tint all rear windows
2 - paint front brake callipars RedImageImageImage

Does the badge just screw off from the inside?
