    Hi All,

    After neglecting my motor in regards to mods and being low ish on cash ive decided to fix a few things and do a few other lil bits on saturday. (finally getting some peace from the missus)

    Stuff to fix:

    change my window regulator
    Headlight (plastic has come off inside)
    Touch up pen on big stone chip on the side
    reseal exhaust joins and tighten
    Recable tie my ignition amplifier to my induction

    Stuff to do:

    Paint break calipers red
    spray engine cover blue
    spray grill surround black
    buy new number plates and fit them

    Dunno if ill be able to fit everything during daylight hours but has anyone got anything else in mind?

    i might get some of that carbon wrap stuff for next week dunno if it would get here in time for saturday if i ordered it today.

    Cheers

    Dave:thumbsup:

    Get plates off of ebay - much cheaper than anywhere else. I got a pair of plates for £8.25 delivered. Halfords want £10ish each.

    Saturday used to be my car day. Now it's my Daughter day, along with Sunday.

    Although I love her to bits, I miss 'car day'. :(

    It's only because her mum and I are separated, so the weekend is the only time I get to see her for very long. :(

    LOL, mine loves doing exactly the same. It's because they are shiny. She especially likes it when I take her the half mile down a dirt track to the swings on the Mini Moto. 'Faster Daddy, Faster' is all I can hear....

    She does know which spanner goes in which slot on the pouch as well, which is most useful....

    Bank Holiday monday this weekend will be my first car day for along time now. That's if the missus doesn't steal the day and make me go shopping or some rubbish.
