Looks brilliant!

 

Do you have a date in mind when you'd like the remaining payment Fez? Be good to have a time frame so I can budget for it. 

 

Hopefully have them in Feb as I want to get my car back on the road in March for its MOT.

I'm fulfilling existing orders only at this point. I don't have a shipping date but should become clearer over the next week as I work out how quickly I can get through these.

Good job Tom but advocates Im probably way down the list Id better look to fix mine again as they have only squeezed through two kits on good faith as passenger one wont adjust enough. Now ... wheres that thread with adjusters made from threaded bar and penny washes?? Think I have it linked on my old Mac

update: all the components are complete and first production headlight (offside) is complete. Hope to have the nearside ready by next week. Challenge at the moment is that I don't have any reference point for bonding the rear cover - the OEM units have a nice ridge but since i'm using carbon fibre I don't have the same luxury.
