View Full Version : Busy day

Took the day off work to have my new alarm fitted,buggers never turned up :evil: ,so instead of wasting it i braved the cold fog and got on with some bits that needed doing,so heres what i managed to get done.


Retrimmed the boot in black acoustic carpet,never had anything in there before just bare metal so looks much better now,just gotta paint the seat rears as theyre a bit knocked about,also retrimmed my door pockets in black suede,bit fiddly but both done now..


Finally fitted the other front door speaker and both tweeters with crossovers so halfway to sounding decent now.Took off single wiper as quite frankly it was pants,went to scrapper and got 2 arms,they were a bit rusty so cleaned them up and primered them,gonna do them black when weather gets better,2 new blades and hey presto..

And lastly i fitted my spark cover to the engine,been sat in the garage for months now

So a few more things to cross off the 'to do' list now :wink:
