Thanks Chris..... Today I completed the carbon fibre switch holder Panel tested the lighting the ~Radar switch is for the sonic distance sensor this will be handy when I lower the car and will give me an Audio alert when the front lip spoiler is 92cm / 3 feet from a curb ...wall /obstacle getting louder up to 15 cm 6 inches with a detectable hight of 5cm 2 inches ....



few Pics of the panel ;)

Image

Running Lights/ grill Halos will come on with the cars LED day time Running Lights but can be switched off if needed or used independently one there own

Image

Same with the fog Lights they will come on with the Rear fog lights on the car but can be run on there own or with the Halo lights depends what flicks your switch :lol:

Image

Image

Image


All the wiring will be completed Friday then the weekend I will be removing the front bumper to fit the new Grill ~ hideaway number plate and sensors and making the front two aluminium Under trays and getting rid of the flimsy panels that are fitted at the moment #-o


thanks for taking the time to look
