    What did you do to your car today?

    After seeing a few interesting threads popping up lately, i got to thinking what i could contribute. Ive seen threads like this on other forums and its always interesting.

    As the title says, what did you do to your car today? Anything from washing it, detailing, changing wheels, servicing, mods, mapping, anything at all. If you spent time at it, tell us about it. Oh, and pictures as much as possible to keep it interesting and for proof of your hard labour.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?



    as for me
    took front bumper indicators out
    now going to get the wife to try and put the gunsmoke tint i purchased on them
    i would do it myself but dont have the patience for it
    also trying to figure out how to wire up my new gauges and pod
    deciding wether i should leave on the small rear spoiler or change
    wondering would carbon wrap look good on the black plastics on the sills and rear bumper
    have decided to make some mods on the interior in the future

    Wash, dry and Wax.

    Good outside cleaning as it was not nice to look at so now she's all clean and Shiny. Need to clean the inside now as Ethan has had his own way with the back seat for far to long.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    It didn't even get unlocked today!
    But in the past month it's had new rear drop links, amp wired up, fresh oil service including diff and gear box
    Windows tinted, change of wheels!!!

    In the next 2 weeks it's getting (fingers crossed) a turbo upgrade, change of ecu, possibly front mount
    After that I'll concentrate on suspension upgrades and arb upgrades

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    ended up doing it myself as I couldnt wait for her to finish what she was doing
    have to say the stuff was real easy to work with
    Thanks to Nic Spec C for the link to where to get the stuff
    its quality gear alright
    just used a hair dryer and pilled around the corners
    couldnt get a good pic as its of the phone
    toook the things below the indicators out so going to spray them black in the morning in work


    also wondering should i go for german plates
    loved them for years buy maybe its getting a bit over exposed now
    fook it sure ill order them and alternate
    still need to get a small plate for the front

    we really should get isdc reg plate surrounds made up
    they would look fookin savage

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I looked at mine out the window and wished it didnt cost as much as it does to have it
    Dont use it much at the weekends anymore and washed it for the first time last week since
    the AGM...

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I put in a second fan for air con. Such a small job turned out to be proper awkward.
    Also put in a pollen filter. The car never had one for some reason. Only the turbos got them.

    That's funny, I was thinking that myself today. The one I have is broken and it temporarily glued together until I sort out something else.
