Front nearside indicator bulb went last week so replaced that over the weekend.

Who the hell designed this? Pain in the ass to get to!

Recently powder coated my white 18" alloys gloss black and gave the car a valet too.

Just bought on of those as well after I realised I can't see it having been replaced on any of the previous service receipts...

Changed the drop links and refitted the wipers after painting them.

And strangely everything came off as it should have, no rounded nuts or anything!

My new filter arrived today - Borg and Beck version at £4.60. Exact copy of the OE one but clean - the old one was black with leaves, insects and the odd bit of mould so obviously hadn't been changed for years...

Spent all day in the garage prepping for a Gtechniq C1 coating. 8 hours later all done. Just waiting for the C2 to arrive now.

Changed the perspex grille for one of the sports grilles. A lot easier than I had anticipated. Only took about 40 minutes.

Looks good.
