What have you done to your car today?

Fitted (nearly) the elec folding mirrors :)

Also, as had the doors in pieces, decided to get the LED handle lights in.

Went with one LED initially..

Better, but could do with being more diffused.


So, settled on three :)

Just got to feed the cables back through the door connector, and get them back together, but that's a job for tomorrow..

Fitted refurbed MFSW controls - finally! Went with plastic primer and 5-6 coats of black bumper paint. Will have to see how it holds up.

Thanks mate. Definitely a job you only want to be doing once in a lifetime (or paying Dietcokeman to do it for you!).

got up at 3am as the alarm was going off (i've replaced the bonnet switch a few months ago so i don't think it is that) - it's been parked up for 6-7 weeks at my mums as we started some building work, building work is at knock through stage so moved into my mum's .. anyway the battery was almost completely flat. I was in a panic pressing buttons and the passenger window dropped 8 inched (thats 6 if your female and reading this) and then lost all power so couldn't close it again :( shoved a bin liner over the gap to try and keep any moisture out (it stuck to the wet car so didn't need weighting down - result). I did put the trickle charger for a couple of days but i think i let it get too flat so it wouldn't charge... jump started it at 7.30 this morning and let it run for a bit.. will take it for a spin over lunch to see if i can get a bit of charge into it else it'll be a new battery..

Knew I'd spoken to soon ! Bloody air bag light won't go out! Anybody any ideas? I disconnected the battery whilst doing the work. Take it I'll need an OBD reset of some sort?? :cry:

Find someone with DIS or Carly software to clear it, DIS is better at diagnostics than Carly but both should sort it.
