cheers m8, Yh the mat was too long, I've had to pull it back now

i had the same problem mate with the mats that the previous owner had in the car

thats the problem with universal fit mats, they dont fit lol

dangerous really cause my clutch pedal got jammed down on it a few times

which is why i got these tailored mats which are brilliant

if you look at the driverside photo you'll see how the mats a lot shorter than the passenger, so it doesnt protude up behind the pedals. it also clips in place so theres no chance of it slipping

they only cost 11quid posted as well so they are a right bargain

cause its not an st mate lol, don't think i'd even fit st badges if i had the front bumper, skirts n alloys would just look silly putting st badges on it now cause most of it is still ghia

Theres plenty of other badges lol just used st as an example lol

got a few little mods out the way, fitted some universal mud flaps, they was a bit long though n needed a chunk hacking off the front flaps cause they was sitting to low and couldnt reverse out the drive without em scraping

i've also sprayed the front fog surrounds in gloss black and flyeyed the front fog units themselves. will also be doing the rear fog surrounds in gloss black too

2013-04-28164808.jpg

2013-04-28164818.jpg

i personally think it improves the front making it look more stealthy n making the most of the horrible front bumper as much as i can. i really dont like that the standard mk2 front bumper doesnt have a proper lower grill like the 2.5

just need to do summin about the grey trim of the bottom of the bumper now, may take it off at some point to colour code or fit an ms lip as i dont think i'll be fitting an st front bumper

few more shots

weather seems to be getting better so i thought i'd start hydro dipping again

started off with me garage door, and to my surprise it actually went completely perfect and looked beautiful..

..and then i went n dropped it :o

was trying to wipe some of the sticky gunk from around the sides n it slipped out my hand

so now theres a few minor imperfections and one big patch missing from where i tried to touch a little thing up n ended up taking more of the print off <_<

anyway here it is

2013-05-03175543.jpg

not finished yet as i'd just put another clear coat on it just before taking the photo so its still wet

all being well i might actually dip the rest of me parts over the weekend

right so after much much faffing about, sanding, priming, basecoating and dip my interior parts, only for it to be almost impossible to get a perfect finish and something some how always going wrong, as well as the amount of mess to clean up adfter each dip n how hard the stuff is to scrub off

i've decided to complately scrap doing to interior in carbon fibre for now and instead i'm gonna spray all my interior trim pieces in gloss black instead

photos to follow once its all sprayed

After a lot more faff than i bargained for, the next little mod is out the way

2013-05-09172150.jpg

I've fitted an additional 12v supply in the dash storage compartment (thanks to Clive for kindly supplying the extra socket and loom)

So now I can stow away all the wiring for my satnav

2013-05-09175238.jpg

So now instead of having a long wire trailing over the dash down to my garage door infront of the gearstick, it all goes tidily away in the top of the dash

2013-05-09175206.jpg

2013-05-09175148.jpg

It works a treat but my god what a right unexpected faff, didnt realize it would be so much hassle

Is this something anyone would want a guide writing up about?

Nice one again mate, you've supplied parts for 2 of my mods now. Damn decent of you. Next time I'm about the devon and cornwall area i'll buy you a whiskey ;)

I'll take a few more photos and write the guide up

Hey, i'm just a run of the mill generous type of guy.

Shame i can't find any more of those patch cables, they are a handy bit of kit.

If i could find the correct sockets i reckon they'd be pretty easy to knock up though.

Anytime you get near the South West you're more than welcome to buy me a drink (or three) ;)

well your generosity appreciated uncle

i reckon the patch could be mocked up easy enough just with some bayonet connectors and a short length of wire going into a long length

or even just splicing directly into the existing loom

the patch certainly does make it easier though

the guides up now anyway so have a read when you can

lol 3 jd's it is then mate just need a reason to be down that way now

Allo dudes & dudettes..

Not been on here much as of late due to working 12hr nightshifts and not posted much progress lately due to not having time to do any

But in between getting what little sleep I can and working I gave the car a rather quick and not very thorough jetwash and detail

You'll notice a bit of continuity between my display photo and these as my fro appears to have disappeared..

And I'm also about to get another mod out the way now its been delivered

Heres a clue as to what it is

2013-06-07150224.jpg
