Slowly working through all the odd jobs to be done on the car making lists and cross things off seems to be the most effective way. Even more slowly I am working through the wiring situation in the car.


Sorry couldn't get the first image to stay rotated correctly :)

I'm using the new one piece aftermarket bumpers and one thing I noticed when initially fitting them is that are a lot straighter than a original item. This straightness results in some big gaps (especially on the rear of the car) between the body and the bumper. Whilst I did dummy fitted them in the past, I thought it would be best to cut the bumper brackets down to get the fit closer. pretty happy with the end result.

Things are slowing down as I get to more of the fiddle bits of putting the car back together. Rear screen (including new rubbers), parcel shelf and speakers are in. Looking at it now, the rear speakers look out of place so I will have to change them for something a little more - a bit too modern for the car I feel.

You wouldn't believe how long I spent messing with this heater cable before I recognised the error in my ways. I probably shouldn't admit it publicly, but oh well I happy to poke a bit of fun at myself.

Lastly, start working through some of the wiring in the engine bay. Looks reasonably clean, will need a little tidy up when everything is completed.

Thanks! The bumpers did take some time, but well worth it in the end. I pretty happy with the wiring, but after finishing that day I did realise that I had forgotten something, that being the wiring for the guard indicator. Thankfully an easy enough fix.
