The front grill was cleaned with some warm soapy water and the Audi rings were sanded back to their original chrome finish to give a better key for the paint and then given two coats of Plastikote primer before the Plastikote satin black top coat.
In addition cleaned up the headlight levelling sensor attachment bracket to the track control arm which was starting to corrode with the paint flaking off, rubbed down, coated with Bilt Hamber electrox and finished in Eastwoods extreme chassis satin black.

Last Wednesday I collected the front bumper cover and reinstalled the headlight washer system, grills and clip nuts ready to go back on the TT.

Now with the track control arms refitted along with new ball joints and track rod ends, the bumper cover was installed, Glacier Blue is hard to match given that the paintwork is nearly 17 years old and people do say that the paint on plastics can appear to look different.
In some angles it looks a really close match, in others it looks completely different.
For now the next task is to finally have a proper 4 wheel alignment carried out and then a discussion with the body shop with regard to the bumper cover.
