Glad to be of help again mate.
A guide is always useful.

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

Got a nice mirror like shine as you can see here though

 

 

 

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

 

 

Swish :)

 

So watch this space

Kidding ;)

 

Nah the weathers warming up and i always tend to bald myself around this time of year. Plus with working 12hour nightshifts then driving at least an hour home afterwards, i just wanna jump straight in bed n not have to wash me hair first. no hair = no need to wash product outa it :P

 

I'd just ran outa product as well so it'll save me a few quid with the amount I have to use. It grows really quick too n with working its just hard trying to get it cut all the time which is how it ended up like it did in my display photo

Anyway now to reveal the next big mod i've just got out the way.. Hopefully a lot of you shall be jealous :P

 

Had a rather large delivery turn up about 3

 

 

After contacting a breakers on ebay I sourced a complete black interior outa an st-2

 

 

As it was too large to fit in the house, I quickly set about gutting the cars current interior, even though I'd only had an hours sleep

 

 

 

Easiest bit of fitting was the new tailgate trims

 

 

Excuse the poor quality photos, as by the time I finished fitting it was getting dark, then the Missus n I fancied kfc so it was completely dark by the time we got back so for now these are the best I can do

 

 

 

 

 

Please also excuse the dirt/storage marks as I havent had time to give it a clean yet but you can just about get the idea. Hopefully better photos to follow tomorrow when it's light

 

Comments very welcome ;)

Haha ! I bet!
I am on nights too, not as long as yours though only 9.5 hours..
I wouldn't have woke up to a knock.. I would have found the attempted delivery card ! Lol

Hmmm tough call, I don't know man.. I'd say go the whole way.. Only as re sale may be harder .. I don't know.. But your car your call.. Looking good though!
Yeah alloys will make ONE HELL of a difference !!
