got my premium fitted at last and a massive thanks to Steve for giving up a day of his time to help, and for letting me use the chrome surround that he had already bought and paid for.

There were lots of issues starting from a bare bumper as we had to fix on the fog mounts, fir tree clip brackets, blanking plates under the indicators, and Steve used his dremmel to cut out the slots in the bumper to fix the chrome surround to, the under tray also has some issues and we have left off the splitter for now but other than some minor adjustments i am absolutely delighted with the outcome and cant stop looking at the front of the car, we also had to raise the slam panel and crash beam before we started and of course the badge is the new bespoke hexagaonal one i had specially made

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Looks good, Rob. 8-)

Is there any news yet on the availability of the missing parts?
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

yes Bernard the slow boat has arrived and its all at customs waiting for clearance, the problem is unravelling the extremely large roll of red tape and filling in the 147 forms that go with it, you could probably get contraband in easier than a few bits for a 75/ZT !

looks great.
The bit of plastic just above the no4 needs removing as per Devlishs' prototype to give an absolute breathtaking front :) Go on you know you have to do it :)

Why a saloon, unless it's as a second 75 (or ZT I suppose)? That bumper would fit your tourer just the same.

Rob, looks the business! Well done to you and Steve for persevering. Mary just commented how much you love your car. Mind you, the last two weeks she's adopted my tourer and proclaimed it hers. How wrong she is.....

Rob, I know we need to spend some time on your car and sort it. I haven't forgotten I need to spend some time on it!

We suggested a small meet to do this, but I'm not sure when I can do this right now. Rest assured, I will find a way. Absolute worst case, your car will be my number one priority at the September Nano, bar none.

Duncan given your circumstances lately you dont think i would bother you with my electrics, especially when Christine works fine most of the time, i never finished your car completely either as the weather was against me so hopefully at the next nano, are you camping in the Hilton again ?

I may bring the tent'o'van, but I may even bring the new van. Still undecided. I'd love to stay both nights but I have a lot going on even that Friday.

I know you aren't asking, but I've been promising to look at Christine since Christmas.

Looking good Rob, when that extra bit of plastic is removed should look far better still.
Prefer to see the grill space on these all clear, regardless of which Club badges, it just looks better IMO.

Is there any grille behind that grey bit of plastic above the reg. plate?
