This isn`t going to be a "build thread" on the scale of some on here...especially as I intend keeping most of it standard with just a few little bits and bobs changed maybe  :smile:

 

Driver side LED sidelight was out...had been for some time by the looks of it. Both replaced with nice bright CREE ones on eBay.

Steve, be careful of those CREE LED's as they get very hot and could discolour the reflector.

 

I've used the Phillips versions and others have on here too.

I`ve used CREE bulbs in various cars for a while now and never had that issue! 

 

 

Are these the ones?

Hi Steve nice job so on what you have done since getting the car. When you fitted the bonnet lifters how did you measure and judge where to drill the plastic trim for lower lug.

Cheers mate. It`s easy enough. Temporarily fix the bracket, line up the trim and just mark with a marker pen and then cut a notch out with a hacksaw.

Those exhaust tips are looking great :nice: . i dont like to clean too far in as the end pipes remind me of halfords big bore clamp on exhaust tips if you can see where they join the weedy pipes inside  :laughing:

Cheers bud. I bought a couple of foam cones for the drill and used Autosol and some Poorboys polish too.
