    Gradually getting the car in a better state,so many things were not to my liking when I bought it.

    So far I've had a new cambelt,Aux belt and water pump changed.
    Swapped out all the scratched dash switches,coin holder,hazard and cup holder for new.
    New rear light cluster.
    New Concert stereo as the old one had no sound.
    Blacked the grills and badge (may change the badge back to Chrome though)
    Used the really handy battery swap on the forum for the dodgy Alarm siren bleeps.
    Fitted new Aero Blade wipers front and rear.
    Cleaned and repaired the central blower unit (filled with cola from the brilliantly placed cup holder)
    Fitted a new third brake light as the old one was sun perished and cracked
    All new discs and pads complete with Braided hoses all around.
    New tyres all around.

    Im slowly renovating my alloys (very slowly)

    And today I finally changed the manky old coolant bottle.

    Its not much compared to some of you guys work but Im feeling better about the car,still to have the suspension arms replaced though:ohmy:

    Couple of pics,sorry not many.

    Andy :)
