Some new pics of the car and Fog Light mod.
So i've been working on painting various parts of the car for a bit, starting with the joey modded facelift headlamps, and now the wheels and facelift grille.
I wanted to wash the car and take some decent pics, but the weather hasnt been good enough, so i just took some quick snaps while we were out for a walk the other day and i thaught i'd post them up to see what folk think.
Also while out yesterday i noticed we had a sidelight bulb out, so when changing it i decided to check all the bulbs on the car while i was there, they all seemed fine, bar the nearside rear fog. Took it apart to see what was wrong and found no bulb, and no hole in the cluster for it. Seeing as one fog looks a bit crappy i decided to see if the lens actually had a reflector inside and was just missing the hole for the bulb. After attacking it with a screwdriver and hammer i found the bits i'd broken out had nice chromeness on the inside of them, so i set to with various brute force implements to make the hole large enough for the bulb. Put it all back together and it works perfectly. Only problem was that after all that, i discovered i didnt actually have a spare bulb to put in it, so i'm still fogless on that side, but i'll pick up a bulb at some point this week to finish it off.
Front light mod / facelift upgrade.
It's really simple. Once you get by the initial fear of taking an angle grinder to your pride and joy, (aye the car, not the missus:laugh:) it's quite straight forward. With the lights off the car there's a small metal lip on each of the wings, this is how the existing separate indicator locates. You must make this go away by using a fast abrasive spinning type implement. :rockwoot:

It's basic electronics just matching the wiring from the loom to wires inside the headlamp.
