hi all just taken delivery of the kit from julian at fibreon

seen the pics on sportmotive gallery of different stages during fitting

but just wondering if anyone could give me a step by step of the fitting part i.e do you need to trim the lens or bucket before fitting?

im ok with cutting the old headlight buckets out and the final sealing etc its the bit in the middle i need to know lmao

i will try and ring julian tommorow but between him fibreglassing and me working its hard to get time to talk to him in daytime hours


thanx in advance peeps

Unfortunately it is a pig of a job but for only 2 reasons...One is that you have to sort of 'guess' which direction is vertical so you make the cut-outs in the pod flange in the right place to accommodate the lamp adjustment screws.

Then the other is that the pod flanges were WAAAAY too small for the lamp flanges where the mounting screws are supposed to go. I ended up welding washers onto my lamp flanges to widen this so I could screw the two parts together!

Unfortunately my itunes re-sync'd my iphone instead of backing -up and I lost all photos of that build. If you need any specific tips, just ask!

I am also considering this - although I cannot help you, you can help others by taking oodles of piccys and sharing your work (and lessons learnt)...

Best of luck...

Sounds good. How much is the kit from Fibreon if you don't mind me asking?

not a cheap set up but i had no choice as id already cut my headlight holes for the lupo conversion but the original replacement headlight reflectors&spring kit is not cheap.think it was £450 inclu vat&postage plus you gotta buy sikaflex pu adhesive type stuff or equivalent like i used which is half price,rattle can plastic primer plus colour you need ,adjuster conversion nuts so they can be adjusted from the rear but i reckon toolstation can supply them 10 for less than a pound instead of the £27 all in for the 4 tamora ones i bought lmao&support brackets if you choose to fit them also from tool station(you will have to bend them yourself to fit).

good thing about it is no paintwork needs doing on front of the car.
