    Your car is looking well. I see you in Portadown all the time... Out of interest who is your mate that sprayed your bumpers as I have 2 fr bumpers that need sprayed? Im also looking to do the BTCC exhaust with the fr bumper, as there is just too many leons with BTCC kits over ere lol

    Called Ian Montgomery, you will see him in a white glanza about Portadown. I think its a better choice going with the fr bumpers and BTCC exhaust, nice to stand out abit. Want me to get you a price on the 2 bumpers and exhaust fitted?


    Thanks dude :)

    Another wee update

    Few more wee bits an pieces have been updated to the Leon..

    Hard to notice in the picture but there's 5mm spacers on the back wheels and also longer wheel studs

    Bought a 'stubby' Ariel

    [​IMG][/IMG]

    Tinted the side repeaters. Made a big difference to the look

    Also tinted the side of the front windows with a light tint. Hard to notice in the picture though

    Small update

    Got bored one day and decided to fit a boost gauge to the car with help from a friend. Wanted to be different so decided to fit it in the driver air event..

    Whats your opinion?

    Afriad not, i just landed down at my friends and says can we fit this, 2 and half hours later it was finished. I will try explain it from what i remember doing..

    Remove the front face of the vent, i ripped it out as im going to need a whole new vent if i decide to take it out..then there are 4 wee clips holding the vent in, they have to be pushed into the vent for you to be able to pull it out.

    Once vent is out, we got a metal sheet of steel (3mm thick i think) and cut it to fit the boost gauge face and the out edge of the steel to fit into the vent surround.

    Screwed the boost gauge together and fitted it back into the car.. all hosing and wires push in first and pulled down to where the OBD socket is located.

    We then drilled a hole, Just up from the clutch pedal and it comes out above the where the turbo is located in the engine back (take this slowly as possible and be careful not to catch any wires)

    Drilled a hole in the intercooler pipe for the boost gauge to read from. Fitted a tyre valve for this to be achieved and connected the hose to the tyre valve.

    To light the gauge up we wired it to the back of the radio, so its always lit when the car is on.

    That's basically it, i hope that helps abit :)

    That definately helps, just need to see where I can find that gauge from, and do you have a pic of the pipe connected to your intercooler pipe?
