Hi Peeps, unfortunately not an interesting update as the money im spending on the car isn't on interesting things :frown:

On way to work had a screw kindly deflate my tyre and it wasn't repairable so the kind people at the nearest tyre garage kindly robbed me of my money :lol: and tonight im changing a split cv boot so all good fun.

Hopefully have a few mods coming next month :thumbsup:

Well here is a partial update as still waiting on some parts to come through :doh: lol

Sorted the mess of wiring where the one touch windows had been installed:

Image

So cut out the one touch relay, and sorted the wiring:

Image

Im happy as I now have working windows again 8-)

Next up was replacing the horrible boot carpet

Image

So Phil sourced me a boot carpet out of a escort estate as they are a lot thicker and nicer, cut it to shape and I think it looks loads tidier

Image

And that's it for now, more to come soon :D

Thanks fella, car now back off the road, got in it this morning to discover I had no brakes.

only had time for a quick investigation as needed to get to work, brake fluid had leaked on rear passenger side :doh:

Will find out what is causing it this evening hopefully, but to say im pissed off is an understatement
