De-Tangoed Type S

I think I have nearly finished my tweaking of the Type S
The major job was the Civinfo.com sticker
The other job was de-tangoing the rear indicators, courtesy of some Type R rear lights.

Right, what can I do next after the dashboard fascia...

I personally don't see the point, but fair play!

The indicators were about 100, but oddly one side was more expensive than the other.
The bulbs were 13, courtesy of
http://www.autolamps-online.com

As Honda had already de-tangoed the front, I was surprised they made no effort on the rear, even the Type R has orange bulbs that need replacing with Philips SilverVision.

CP, we can't be all the same

Unfortunately I just couldn't warrant the cash, with £120 or so I feel that there's other things I could change bigger/better in my car and flat.
But it looks VERY nice, if it was under £50 it'd be a do-er.
Maybe when there's some bumped Type-R's?

Yes!
I originally wrote smashed, but the thought of a smashed up Type-R upset me too much!

foggy, do you always park with the sun on the back of your car? only asking as ive just found 2 cracks in my light cluster on the tail gate. they have appeared in each of the rear fog lights in the clear perspex, either side of the "H" badge. and the only thing i could think of was the sun was on the back of the car all day. dealer has taken some pics but they have never seen this before.

Gray52, I usually park it the other way round, so the back is in the shade, the same at work.
CP, it's mine, all mine, you can't have it

I assume this is fairly easy to do? Might be tempted to have a go at this myself!

It seems cheap when compared to my gear stick plans!

It was a reasonably easy job.
The lens assembly removal is explained in the manual, as this is how you remove the bulbs.
The only problem was that the indicator bulb holder didn't locate in the new assembly, but cutting off 2 of the 4 locating lugs on the bulb holder solved that problem.
The job took all of 10 minutes.
