I wish. I just spent the last 2 weeks install an off-grid solar system in my double garage. After 18 months, I now have 240v again, so I can use my compressor, welder and power tools 😁

So the Evoque is complete! 😁 I have been using it as my daily driver for the past couple of weeks. Must say, I've enjoyed the build immensely, and having great fun driving her now she's done 👌

So ... as is tradition, I will leave with some photos of how she looks after the transformation. But first ... I will remind you of what it looked like on day 1 ...

Do you know how much over budget you went?
Well ... based on what I initially set out to do in the first post ...

Wheels, tyres, bumpers, twin-fin boot, lower door mouldings, side steps, fogs, lights and grille. Weighing up the costs, I budgeted just shy of £4K for everything.
I blew the budget considerably with those LED headlights (£1499), but fortunately made more than I anticipated back on selling all the parts individually (which was a tedious process - but worth it). Also, I now know that I could have sourced these parts significantly cheaper. Example, all the side door mouldings cost me £400, whereas 2 weeks later I found that doner car where I could have had the set for £200. Hey ho, live and learn 👍 Plus, there are some upgrades that I didn't plan for; door mirrors (£300), sweeping indicators (£68) ... etc. It all adds up, and before you know it, the budget is blown 😅

Summarised breakdown of costs below ...

So, to answer your question ... based on what I originally set out to do ... I budgeted for £4K and it ended up closer to £5K.

I haven't included the cost of the 2019 interior as this wasn't part of the original plan or budget. As soon as I completed the exterior, the original interior looked really bad - it demanded an upgrade 😉

Considering the major effect it's had on the car I'd say the prices in that parts list are very reasonable - you did a cracking job on that. It looks very very impressive!!

Thanks Tom. It has passed the Wife Test too - so that's a relief 😆

That's way better than I imagined (and most importantly passes the SWMBO test too!!). (y) (y) :)
