My Milano 2.2!

Bought it back in October last year, loved it when i saw it at the dealers but having joined this site have since see what can be done to make them look even better!

Mod's so far...
  • Sports Grill
  • Midnight tints on rear 3
  • Type R spoiler
  • Stained grey trim
  • Gers' Red H's and brake light cover

Still to be done...
  • Paint brake calipers red
  • Full detail including touching up the stone chips
  • Heko wind deflectors
  • Re-map

If i suddenly come in to loads of money...
  • Colour coding
  • Black alloys with red or chrome lip
  • Lowered and FRS

For the cleaning enthusiasts...
  • Britemax Black Max Polish/Glaze
  • Britemax Extreme Elements
  • Zaino Z8 - Love this stuff!!

I used Plasticare Black trim dye (ebay it) then a coat or 2 of Gtechniq T1 (i will apply this once a month prob) and a quick spray of Black in a Flash after every wash to keep it glossy!

Used a small foam roller from B&Q, one bottle will be enough to give it a couple of coats all the way round. If you get some paint tape too and mask the paintwork off it makes life a lot easier.
