Hello mate,It’s been a while since I last posted on here, great to see the spoiler back on. I’m envious of the wheels you’ve tracked down, I may have mentioned I tried to find a set once but a combination of their rarity and asking prices for any sets that did turn up eventually put me off but I really do like how they look on a Phase 1, especially one that’s fitted with other Trophy parts.
The brake ducts are a nice touch and I can’t recall seeing another road car with them fitted. Have you purchased a spare front bumper or are you going to cut into the original to fit them?
The car looks great in those last pictures from Donington Park, but should look even better with the new parts fitted .
Fair enough, a good attitude to have. Is the guy who did the work on your spoiler doing the cutting work? I imagine getting the holes lined up for the ducts is a case of measure several times and cut once.Hello mate,
Regarding the brake ducts and the front bumper, I'm not buying a spare.
As previously mentioned in some early part of this thread, this was bought to use and, on the basis it isn't going to be sold until I'm cooling down in my jar on the mantlepiece (already a pensioner now so halfway there ), future values don't concern me.
A few years ago there was a guy on here who had 10 sets of genuine Trophy/Cup car mirrors for sale I tried to get a set at the time and there were plenty of other people interested in the rest but the whole thing came to nothing in the end with the original seller no longer posting in the thread.Toying with the idea of playing with door mirrors. It appears that any of the carbon ones fitted to the Trophies are about as hard to find as Unicorn doo doo under your sofa! A few motorsport places do similar looking ones at way more reasonable prices but not 100% sure. Sometimes look at a pic of a Trophy car and think they look fine, then next time I look they appear to be stuck on as an afterthought.
Sounds like a good deal .He certainly is, he does most of it whilst I just make the coffees.
I don't think the opening is much, if any bigger but I may be wrong. The actual shape of the side pods are different though and they come out at a slightly different angle. Here is a picture of Trophy with them fitted:Differences in the side pods? Are they bigger?.
