Good job. I just ordered a PDC kit from eBay for $12 and tossed the rest of the kit. Put the PDC's in and cut the wires from them. Real PDC's that don't do anything.

Your solution is definitely more creative (and cheaper) though.

Have you made these yet? I would like to buy some. I'm buying a M Tech rear with PDC holes from another member and this might be the solution. =) Let me know ASAP please. Thanks!

i cant stress enough how important prep is, thats literally like 80% of the job. make sure the garage is as clean as possible, also mist downt the floor with water to keep the dust from getting picked up by the air from the gun. also make sure you dont skimp on the paint coats of clear coats but that doesnt mean use too much, both will ruin the paint.

Hey I'm interested in purchasing your PDC fillers. Just found an OEM m tech front bumper with PDC. Do I need mounts or anything behind them? I had read somewhere OEM PDC requires a bracket behind the sensors. Do yours maintain position by retention? PM me! I look forward to your reply! Thanks!

Hey I was trying to reach TroyDeJ any way I can get in touch? I want those plugs he made for his bumper. I bought a rear bumper for my e92 m3 that has the holes in it, but my car never had the senors in it.
