Not today but Saturday afternoon Jamie kindly fit one of my Christmas presents from the missus, my projector foglights. They fit and look well, just need some brighter white bulbs to match in with the HID headlights as they're the normal yellowy colour. Bulbs should be here in the next day or so, then I'll share some pics :)
Looking forward to the pics. Light upgrades are deffo on the list of things for me

Finally made a start on getting the subframe cracks repaired. Got the exhaust and prop shaft off, loosened all the drive shaft bolts, and removed that brace thingy at the back. I will at some point upload all the progress pics, either on a new topic or the general topic for my car.
Its actually been allot easier than I thought so far, only down side is 2 of the three studs snapped on one of the exhaust flanges :( . So need a solution for that, as I dont fancy removing the manifold, looks like its a right PITA

Fitted the lovely re-trimmed msport steering wheel my girl got me for Christmas :-) Well chuffed with it, feels and looks so good, plus it matches the handbrake and gear gators I replaced last year. Best interior mod to date.

Not at pc today but will be tomorrow so will post up some pics in my build thread.

Nice pic Jay. Did you drive about in the quarry, do a few donuts etc....?

I've just found the lid off a 2 litre bottle of water in the rear foot well in my coupe! Its been there for about an hour and completely emptied its self. Obviously the carpet is soaked along with the floor mat which I've removed now. Mopped it up best I can but should I be concerned about the water that will of made its way beneath the carpet? Will there be a drain hole of some sort under the car?

Try to get a dehumidifier in there or some silica gel bags, if you don't have any then let me know as we sometimes get big bags of silica gel when new bikes are delivered

I hadn't thought of that, thanks Adam. We get them in our cabinets at work, fairly large ones too :-) will pop a few in there tomorrow morning.

Oh what, missed opportunity that. Bet you didn't want to get it dirty hey ;-)

Its drying up nicely now. Got the worst of it up with a few towels and I now have a load of big silica gel packets in there. No steamed up windows today so it can't be that wet.

Collected my painted bootlid and had a go at fitting. Ran out of time due to work so don't look at the fitment or lights, got a lot of messing around with the fitment to do. But overall pretty pleased.
