Howdy

Post by Cleedubber on Mon Apr 11, 2016 4:58 pm

Hey there guys
New to the forum, had my Clubman GL nearly 3 years now and love her.
Had a little make over during this winter to give it a breath of fresh air.

Thanks for the friendly a welcome guys  smile!

Replaced shocks all round and rear springs to new HD items (old ones were absolutely shot), lowering it a little bit too and now sits level instead of the nose looking skyward 
Colour coded bottom section
Newer front bumper, colour coded with fogs
LED running lights front and back
LED rear light cluster
LED front lights
New alloys with spacers on rear to fill the huge arches a bit 
Tired old decals removed and new custom ones applied 
Mirrors, fridge vent colour coded 
New water and hook up fittings 
Full paint correction and power polished 

Think that's it confused3

Will add a pic later when on my iMac as doesn't seem to want to on iPad rolleyes

It appears I am not allowed to post any pics yet shrugg

Very nice Neil. Did you replace the rear lights completely or just upgrade the bulbs to led, if you did replace the lights completely what did you replace them with and do you have a pic?

The standard rear lights are very dated on the Clubman.

Thanks guys

I had new full led units fitted to the rear, apparently a bit of a b***h to wire up

Thanks for the pic's Neil. Those light's are quite a bit bigger (longer) than the ones fitted to my Clubman and make the back of the van look a bit more contemporary. They fill the available space much better.  The standard lights look cheap and almost an afterthought as if they just raided a parts bin from somewhere. Where did you source yours from?

Sorry for all the questions, but it's your own fault for doing such a good job ! up!
