New battery.

Will be ordering the case for the boot then the install will begin.

For the darker nights I'm fitting a few lights so I can work when i want (which will be a lot as my weekends are much more free over the winter)

Image

so updates will come over the next few months. Hopefully have her running before then, then it's a case of saving to be able to get her mot'd, insured, taxed etc.

So today for the first time in months i did a couple of things on fifi.
I started with my new battery, a bosch s3 001.
Image
i soon realised the connectors on the cable were incorrent so the correct ones have now been ordered.
Nevertheless that didnt stop me from knocking up a quick bodge and low and behold we had a working battery. Interior lights came on, the usual bits worked and then it came to turning the key... i knew it wouldnt start but i got something, and that something came from what i can only assume to be the starter motor. It was a click each time i turned the key. So what am i missing here?

Next job was to try a wet sand and polish. Now i had practiced on my fabia and it came out a treat. So i thought id try the rear quarter where there was some shed paint and other defects. Safe to say ill be doing the whole car...

then a quick before and after of the swirl marks...
Image
Image
and it was all done with this...
Image
final shot...
