    I'd say skip the lower lip, it look too much Focus RS wannabe in my opinion, but if you must absolutely do it go for the plastidip route, it won't be the exact same shade of your matt black vinyl on the plate section but is loads easier.

    Or remove the bumper, take of the grill and have someone help you using the pre-stretch technique (search in youtube).



    On a side note, has anyone removed the rear emblem fro wraping/painting? just the emblem.
    I'm planning on a two-tone paintscheme that would require to mask the whole car and it will still probably endanger some of the plastics on the mechanism.

    - Something to get the car in the air
    - torque wrench that can go to 130Nm
    - 19mm or 21mm socket (can’t remember off the top of my head) hopefully someone can chime in on that one.

    The bottom lip is hard to do! I ended up wrapping it in two halves starting from the centre and working outward. Can’t see the join at all. Did you use a hair dryer when stretching it?

    New bootlight turned up after started having a connection issue with the standard one.

    It’s massively brighter, but the unit is a bit larger (not the end of the world) however it seems to stay on dimly when the boot is shut. So might be back to the drawing board.

    Also need to fix my parcel shelf after it’s broken for the 3rd time.

    I'm seriously considering trading my Cupra wheels for those, it looks proper on Monsoon gray.
    any idea how wide are they?

    The plastic clips in the boot panels that it patches on to, right and one has broken off each time.

    I can confirm 225's they are the 30/3, only became available to SEAT UK in early July so I pounced on them as they are also the cheapest option at £250 but to me the better option for the Grey.

    Judging by the pics I say they are 7.5" wide like the cupra's which is good.

    Found locally some replicas, that look spot on, at 1/3 the price and with a +45 offset instead of +51 which is a big plus.
    I just need to save a little more:D
