So, as mentioned previously, bought the Accord with a dent on the front wing.
After some searching around, I managed to pick up a wing from Telford for £40. Finally had the chance to replace it over, getting the bolt under the side skirts was a pain.
Colour matched perfectly. I'm pleased
Wow that looks spot on a perfect match !
What great luck
I asked around to have it repaired and resprayed and was quoted £140.
I wasn't in a rush so I thought I'd wait around to find the right colour and replace it myself.
Tinted rear light. Light smoke tints.
I've made the picture full size so everyone can see the difference easily.
I recon that's just perfect shade of tint
That really looks very good and indeed the perfect tint. But is it legal? I ask that because almost a lifetime and many cars ago i made the rear lights of my black car black tinted. If i remember right it was done with spray paint, haha. It looked very good then, but it was not legal.
UK MOT test regulations state you can tint lights upto 50%.
Thats correct and you have to ensure the reflectors are still doing their job.
Just looked for the regulations in the Netherlands and here it's not permitted and a MOT failure.
Maybe make friends with the MOT tester
That's my brother in law, hahaha. But i am not sure he'll jeopardize his APK (MOT) approval for his garage by the RDW (Dutch Vehicle Authority).
What about if you get something like this.

Just an idea
Car accelerates good. There is a nice pull to it, but takes time to slow down.
Thought I'd get the brake pads changed.
I have to say, it made a massive difference.
Installed a new headuint to the Civic yesterday so transferred over the Aux/USB i had over to the Accord. Surprising it only took 10mins.
