Going for all black...

Post by swaudby98 » Thu May 31, 2018 9:23 pm

New to the forum but just wanted to post a few photos of the cosmetic changes I have made over the past month on a 1.0L turbo 66 plate model.

Rear windows tint (5% Limo Tint):

Debadged:

Alloys (OEM Silver Alloys resprayed to Matte Black):

Personalised plates are True 3D and they were ordered on eBay from a trusted seller. Heko wind deflectors also from eBay.

Got a few more things to do such as changing the chrome trim on the side to black, as well as the front grill and the rear badge but not in any hurry to get those sorted.

Inspiration has definitely come from another thread which was described as Stealth Black.

Yeah lowering it could be another thing to be added to the list. Personally I love the all black look on cars so to be very close to achieving it on mine is great.

Nice.

Smoked side repeaters are a must.

Good man, remember and order plenty of tyre shine as brown tyres are a no-no. LOL

How about breaking up the black with some carbon wrap. i.e the chrome window strips, boot lock and the top part of the grill?

Pressed metal plates with the black edge would also look nice...

Yeah I'm considering getting the chrome parts wrapped but haven't decided if I'm going to go for a carbon look just yet.

As for the number plates, I thought I had posted a photo of the ones I currently have one but I guess I didn't. Image below, may be able to post a better one later showing the depth of the 3D lettering.
