    Default Bits and bobs

    Nout exciting.

    The few bits and pieces I ordered for the Vec have all now arrived - VX mats, boot liner, side lights, rear lights.

    Will post some pics this weekend once they are all fitted and once I have cleaned her. Hoping she will start taking shape once these are on.

    Fitted my new lights today. The car looks loads better.

    The nearside is a bit tight to undo the nuts, isn't it.

    You do one thing though, and you think, that would look good, or if I had that etc etc. I hope I am not staring on the slippery slope, that was never the intention with this car.

    One slight problem I had was with the bulbs. I was left cursing Halfords, the amber indicator bulbs I got wouldn't fit. I had to go down to my local motorfactors. They were about to sell me the same bulbs. I had to get what the bloke in the motorfactors described as bulbs for non-standard aftermarket lights. The 581 bulbs (the ones listed for my car), wouldn't fit in my bulb holder.

    I found this strange because as far as I was aware, my bulb holders were standard. The bulbs I needed had the little metal nodules (the bits that secure the lights in the holder) directly opposite eachother. The 581 bulbs, the ones listed for my car, wouldn't fit, the metal nodules are too close together to fit in my bulb holder. Not sure if the guides are wrong, or if my bulb holder is non-standard?

    Will get some pics up tomorrow.

    I thought I had the wrong sidelights at first aswell, but I gave 'em a good push and they got in eventually! But GL with the new stuff, and it sounds to me like you've got early symptons of mod-flu
