    Howdy all..
    Little update. Not so much a modification but kind of a necessity... Mrs was complaining of the sun light annoying the wee man! I tried those poxy little blinds.. I even thought about tints! But didn't want to go down that route...(again)
    So bought some custom fit sun shades...

    Come in a handy bag..

    Contents... 6 pieces altogether!

    All fitted..

    Love how the window can still be used as normal!

    Also washed the motor using the two bucket method and plenty of tyre gel.. B)/>

    Not bad for just under £100 :)/> Imho...
    Bought them from eBay and have to say the quality is really good... Just hope they withstand the test of time! :cool:

    I might be tempted by a set of these they look well made and a good fit, im no a fan of tinited windows in general and these look a great alternative.

    I had these in my old corsa VXR,

    the rear was in two parts and they kept falling out... Got really annoying... They looked good though... :)

    Have to agree with you on that one, sides look great, but that line down the back would do my head in
