Would add to that list however it seems you can't edit a post once it's made!:(
Just bought some rolls of wire to complete my illuminated grab handle wiring and also 2 electric mirror interior panels as mine are currently manual ones with rubber plugs!

No real update I'm afraid as I took some pictures and my phones decided to auto format my memory card!

But today I fitted my new front number plate, fitted my electric mirror interior panels and got some pictures of my new dash leds.... which I now don't have.

If I get time, I'll take some more:)

Well not updated this as I haven't done anything recently but I've been talking to Amanda (VV) about her boot build quite a lot recently and she's helped me out loads! So now I know what I'm doing, I'm going to make a start on that soon, it's nothing special but should look quite smart if it ends up how I have it pictured!

I've also decided I need to find some PH2 electric mirrors as I want to go back to the standard look, so V-Grill with standard lights fitted with upgraded blue vision bulbs and then fit my GSi spoiler and twin back box.... decided subtle is the way forward!

Also this week I'm going to try and get over to the breakers for a look around, need to find a few bits!

Update!

Well today I had a spare afternoon... g,f at work:(.... so decided to get the front door cards off and get the looms out to replace them with the ones from my old car so I have electric mirrors! I already have the wiring in the car side of the loom so swap of the looms, job done!

Also emptied my boot as I'll be staring my boot build soon, fibreglass side panels to house the sub on one side and amp on the other with wiring running underneath.... should look sweet!

Then whilst I was at it I got the cam cover off to clean and wrapped some wiring in yellow electrical tape... class much!... and tried to get my ICV off but it's under the inlet so thats coming of and I'll polish it up with the grinder.... sexy!

Pics:

Before

After:
[Image: P020210_1652.jpg]

x2 old looms, x2 new looms
[Image: P020210_1700.jpg]

Yellow electrical tape ftw!
[Image: P020210_1639.jpg]

This needs a clean.... badly!
[Image: P020210_1640.jpg]

This is being taken off, 1 so I can get to the ICV and 2. so I can polish it up with the grinder... painted looks cack!
[Image: P020210_164001.jpg]

This can't be good??
[Image: P020210_1641.jpg]

And mums sexy car!
[Image: P270110_151701.jpg]

Will update again later as the looms aren't quite as simple as it looks.:)
