    Default Santa's been early!!

    All,

    Had a delivery today of the dual exit bits required for my cdti. Right hand box, dual exit trim, exhaust mounts and should have been Irmscher Y piece to make it all fit but for some reason it was put on Parcelforce 48 on Wednesday and it hasn't arrived.
    Little project for hols over Xmas!


    Also fitted an Omega stubby aerial what do you think? I had to go for this one as my car has sat nav & blueooth so the aerial screw thread is 0.5mm wider than standard aerials. Could do with a couple of mm cutting off so it will sit flush to the base.

    You could make a little spacer to sit between the base the aeriel, covering the exposed threads.

    Umm, my mind instantly thought of a small alloy spacer (might look abit plop but i guess you could paint it black) but i've got a lathe and tonnes of metal i can use so i instantly think of machining things (i forget that not everyone has the same 'facilities') I could knock one up in the new year if you want leeds?
