Things I Do Like

Recommended Posts

I like going to watch the new spider man film. Had to sit next to this lady who well.... Liked to comment on scenes in the film. When spider man nearly died there's 'oh no' and stuff like that etc. She liked to twitch in surprising moments 😂. God I just imagine how she's like in reality. 

I'm very picky on what it should be like in the hall but sadly even grown people can't stop talking.

That light bar does look to be a little descreet which I like. You need to show us some night pictures of the lights 😲

I do like that it is Friday tomorrow and for once I will have a WEEKEND OFF!! :ohmy:

Well the Passat does have to be into the garage at 8:30 for new tyres but aside from that my diary is completely clear.  Whoop whoop :wink:

Thanks very much guys, 

All finished now 

Bit of PVC tape on the headlights 😂 looking mean, I don't think they would be missed now neither 

Kept it as factory looking as possible.

I do need to align it correctly now; looking forward to darkness for that to be done.

First time I ever saw loads of spider webs inside the engine bay; but it's also my first time working on a 1.0 litre so maybe that's standard housing for them ☺️

The radio reception doesn't work in the Yaris and it has a cassette deck, 

I wasn't sure if perhaps the Speakers were blown or it actually was the radio reception.

I've just been up in the attic to retrieve a cassette, not just any old cassette though; 

20190801_210202.thumb.jpg.9065041b97260c699687f699254c0740.jpg

It's an official cassette of the Theme Tune for The X-Files 😂 that was a show about UFO way before the X-Factor 

I've set it ready to play at level 12 soon after he starts the engine 😂 thought it would suit the theme quite well with the new light bar 

And atleast we know now the Speakers work; so if he gets a Cassette to 3.5mm jack he can stream audio from the phone aswell as maintaining the battery on the phone.

As sad as it is I've still got a lot of the X-Files video tapes somewhere that I refuse to get rid of.  I can just imagine that blaring out of the stereo when he's not expecting it!! :laughing:

I collected him there from his house around 21:30 brought him back to take his car home as I'm not insured to drive it atall as result I couldn't bring it to him, 

The look on his face when the radio started playing the X-files theme he was proper shocked then delighted when he found it coming from the stereo he says "No way you fixed the stereo aswell" I said no but I've diagnosed the issue to be the radio reception and nothing else; I recommended he get a cassette to 3.5mm headphone cable which would then allow music streaming from his phone.

At this stage it was 22:00 so we went out for a drive to check out the light; unfortunately I've not got any pictures yet; and although the light bar isint correctly aligned yet for best spread on the road; its capable of illuminating both sides of a two way street like a football stadium, its about the same output as two LED street lamps put together  😂 

Parked around 9ft from a red brick wall and switched it on; I found myself squinting my eyes as the reflection was sort of blinding.

This picture on the listing is proper how it looks in reality; I will however get some pictures at a later date some evening I'll get a lift home from work with him,

Overall I've enjoyed fitting it and the USB power supply; it passed 24hrs of my holidays doing something which I really enjoy and hadn't done for a few years;

This was my first time directly or physically modding for someone else not through a forum or email so its pleasent to then hand it over to someone else and see them appreciate and comment on it although I was feeling anxious about getting it all perfect;

I didn't get that anxiety when doing my own car because I'd suffer the possible errors; but when your doing it for someone else its always in your mind that it has to be 100% for your reputation relys on the standard of the job.

Its fitted on a rocker switch as shown earlier in other posts; and designed for off road use only; the useal hi/low beam and parking still function as normal without the light bar activating; 

Turn on the switch then the light bar will then become active along with the high-beam lights which get dimmed for on coming traffic or built up areas.

I do like winning £125 on the Premium Bonds this month....

Very cute mate,

We used to have cats when I was a kid; got them from an elderly woman whom had them trained to pee on newspaper,

Just unfortunate the cat could climb as they really like to do and didn't care if it was today's newspaper or that it was on the kitchen table didn't matter atall if it needed to go and there were paper near that was 👌

What have you called him or her? 

I'll post my like in a new post now not to conflict rather thinking about it now; what I want to post is more of a thing I don't like regarding dogs and a chip shop today 😅

Trying to keep the Rock theme going (we have a boy cat called Ozzy) she is called Izzy. Izzy being the (male) guitarist in Guns'n'Roses but the name's kinda female as well.

I do like getting the new front tyres fitted to the Passat!  The old ones were barely legal, and the outside edges were smooth from when the alignment was out, so they were sorely needed.

Have to get my tire changed on my car. Don't like the black steely I have on the back. Looks kinda cool though how the black caliper can be seen.

@zain611, the next Walter White :laughing:.

Good going though 👍.

Someone use to say to me they hope I don't go into making nuclear bombs with this degree 😂

Probably the best I've done in my education. I went to the worst secondary school where there was no organisation in teaching and that they only taught people to a C grade. That had an impact on what I could do in college. Went to a decent college however because of my grades I couldn't do A levels in my chosen subject so had to do Btec. Thankfully managed to get the grades needed to do this degree and now thankfully got a first class. 

Now I've received a conditional offer at UCL for a immunology and microbiology masters and just now have to send them my transcript to show I met their requirements. 

It kind of shows if you mess up in one school you are still able to succeed in the next. I just hope I get a good job. I have no concept of money and I'm 21 🤣

I do like taking advantage of the beautiful weather and going for a 100 mile drive in the countryside, which served a dual purpose of letting the Wynns turbo cleaner make it's way through the system and after a few streams of smoke on acceleration the turbo noise is quieting down nicely.
