So, I thought I would show from the beginning as my new hobby, project and general spare time fun will materialize over time:

Ya know what I have so many ideas floating around I am kinda doing one part at a time. Ordering the DRLs from Bog tomorrow, and I need to get my iPhone attachment sorted, so that is the first couple.

But then I have seen so many great little things from on here, and more importantly the how to's that I just cannot remember them all!

I'll not be messing with the engine or sub-structure (Costly), only cosmetic, grills and the likes, lights and bulbs, alloys in time, then the interior.

Some photos of the recent mods:

Project ESta vinyl I made up, plus Civinfo sticker, on each side.

Honda Brake Light Cover (no dark pictures yet!)

Blue Start Button... rather proud of that!

Gear gaiter & handbrake gaiter, blue stitching (PS I know the gear knob is all skew!)

Blue numbers on steel gear knob

Blue Footwell lights (no piccy yet)

And finally: My Parrot remote mounted on custom dash - replacing the lighter socket (I have details on how I did it, but no pics sorry!)

Yer do you know what though it is all just pretty things so far, wait til the splitters arrive and I start messing with those, then the difference starts. Plus I need to get round to spraying the remainder of the arches and skirts... as I want to keep those.

eBay 10, then I swapped the blue plastic button cover for the original red. 10 for a piece of plastic the size of a 10p... A lot I know! And I had to take the button apart to do it, but it just pops off. I am yet to wire an LED inside to brighten things up, the original either the LEF is gone or not bright enough...

Forgive the unwashed car... leaving for after a long drive to Wales this week, then before Sun Sea & Civics.

So, new front splitter finally on. Pics don't come out well (it was on my phone!) but the grill is metalic blue...
