So here are my poor attempts at pictures due to only having my phone and no natural light. Will get some better ones when I can, might not be tomorrow due to raging hangover possibilities.

The work done was 2 new arches welded in, new inners made up and welded in, smoothed under rear lights, rear bumpstrip sprayed, one wing mirror resprayed, flared arches, and side strips removed.

They undersealed and stonechipped the arches, they lacquered up all of the doors as well and it all looks so fresh!!

Need to sort the ride height on the rear a bit now, probably get it a little lower with the flare now.
Need to get the front wings repsrayed as they have been done with the side mouldings on before so theres a line there, but I need the bonnet and boot doing as well so get that done soon, practically a full respray, knew I shouldn't have started chasing perfect paint!
Got me some front ultra headlights too :)

I would like to point out that your rear tyres are on back to front, you best change them around before you spin the car in the wet and ruin the lovely new paint :)
