I’ll have to look at the alltrack rear, can’t seem to picture it.

I can’t wait to see it on but grafts getting in the way of that gotta pay for the ever growing list somehow.

In all honesty the alltrack rear is not too exciting. Literally been searching for well over a year for a nice rear diffuser. Only seen a couple of shoddy fibre glass ones! The oem alltrack option was the only logical choice.
LITCKY and Winst have them on theirs ;)

I was in the same boat, a lot of people are doing the r32 style and I wanted something different.

I’ve had this diffuser since may but been putting off as I wanted some other things spraying at the same time.

Cheers pal wanted something different and to be able to save the spare wheel. But as always that didn’t go to plan, had to cut the bolt plate off and do away either the bracket. I now have to find a way of storing the spare in the back. Why do we do this to ourselves

Great work on the van mate, rear bumper is looking good, never seen it done before. It's good to see something unique. Yeah the bolt plate sticks out just a bit too far :-(

Cheers Gresley, took a bit of inspiration from you and spent ages looking for something different

I had to get rid of my spare because of my exhaust. I just carry a bottle of gunk and the little pump (got them out of a Mercedes) to go with it now. Most new cars these days don't even come with a spare wheel so I'm not too worried. I have RAC if the worst comes to the worst.

I did make a bracket which bolted a space saver spare to the back of my bulkhead but had to remove that as my air tank goes there now.

I was also thinking of going down that line or even constructing some sort of false floor as I would also like to go down the air route next year. Especially after seeing yours and also one of the lads who works in the Bodyshop has a fiesta on air. This makes me want it more

Managed to get both mirrors rebuilt this evening, pretty pleased with how they’ve turned out

If the weather changes I’ll hopefully get them on tomorrow along with a few bits inside
