Changed the front grill

Thought I'd post Before & afters in here so others contemplating it will know what to expect.

Changed the front grill

Before



After




Of course "Her-Indoors" then said "Why are you changing that ? I LIKE THAT BIT (original perspex grill). NOW it looks JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER CAR !!

Bah!

Much better with the new grill! My wife don't like everything i do but when its installed she always like it haha.

Only thing we didn't really agree was the 20 inch wheels because they are very expensive but i bought them and for her a nice flower haha

You're supposed to tell her they only cost you half of what you paid. That way you could have only bought her half the amount of flowers

She's in charge of the finances as I'd be bankrupt in rather short order !!

So..

As I'm the only breadwinner... If I don't put the dosh on the side for ..whatever then there'll be a shortfall on the credit card.

And she's VERY strict on that. If 100% of the dosh is not up front before ordering then I can't order !

(If you can't afford then you can't have !)

Don't worry.. The first 25 years are the worst. It gets better after that (The mortgage is paid off !!)
