Now that looks the business in red.

What's the sticker on the tailgate. Looks like a country or something?

Collinite wax. Best Ive used (for the price)and detergent proof
476s Super Doublecoat wax
"Super Doublecoat Wax Collinite's super doublecoat is guaranteed to outlast and outshine any competitive autowax, polish or protective coating under any conceivable condition. That's why it's called the permanant auto wax"

Actually, getting the old one off was the hard bit.
Just couldnt get the bottom clips undone, ended up by breaking one side by accident, so I broke the other to get it off.
(parts are available when I sell the car and return it to standard) so I'm not bothered. Would still like to know how to get the clips undone. ANYONE???
Fitting the Type R grill was VERY easy

Seems the proper way to do it is to remove the front bumper first.
