Budget wise we completed within the budget and time. But quality could of be way better.
Analysis on evaluating the diagram of electronic flow on how power gets supplied.
Painting the DRL covers.
Seen the DRL dim 50% whenever fog lights were turned on.
Paint knowledge, flaws on the steps to take to have a good paint quality to last long few years.
Sometimes s better to purchase Original Parts (OEM) even if can cost you a 25-40% more but end results will be seamless.
