    Talking Got a busy, busy weekend of modding!

    Got a bunch of things planned for the car for Saturday, and possibly Sunday depending on how things go
    • Fitting new mirror housings to give me the folding mirrors mod. Reckon my door modules are the right ones as I have memory seats, so will soon find out! Housings arriving today courtesy of Andyvec.
      Will try to do a comprehensive set of pics for a How 2.
    • Fitting the new side skirt after previous one started to peel due to faulty primer from the factory.
    • Fitting new wheels.
    • Changing the 314mm grooved discs I got with my new brake kit to solid discs - prefer the solid discs. As the discs come with pads (brake kit) the grooved discs and Police spec pads will be going up for sale shortly.
    • Whilst at the GSi's workshop meet, we thought my dealer had given me the wrong OEM rear pads I had bought separately as they looked totally different (they way they were held in), so I fitted the after-market pads that came in the brake kit. The pads were correct after further checking, just a new design, so they'll be getting fitted.
    • Fitting a new rubber front lip - this one colour coded. Have always ruled out a splitter as I'll rip the bl**dy thing off on the first car park ramp/ferry ramp! with me being lowered - so this will just remove the last bit of black trim on the car.
    Phew!, I think that's everything!!

    Mark and Cara are coming down on Saturday for the weekend so I'm sure Mark will be getting roped in to lend a hand! Mark's bringing my new wheels, the painted lip and the new 314mm discs and pads. Well I hope he is!

    I think Cara and Mrs Duncan may be hitting the shops on Saturday afternoon!

    Well if the weather stays as it is now Ed, I'll be a happy man!

    Courier has just been with the new mirror housings. Hoping I've got the right ones - there are enough wires coming out of them so here's hoping!

    Soooooo tempted to get outside and start fitting them, but I must do some stuff inside first.

    Edit: @ Bryan......

    Will see you 5ish tomorrow afternoon for my wheel... may have the family with me, so will be a flying visit - she tends to get agitated if I spend time standing around talking cars in people's garages!!!
