  2. Can't fucking believe it. I parked my car at work last night in a big space between two other cars, I normally take note of where and who's next to me but didn't this time as I got talking to another driver. Came out this morning to find a scratch almost full length of the passenger door. I tried to t cut it out but didn't realise how deep it was so went to deep into the paint now have a light spot. And still scratched. Photos are in project log.
  3. New extra bright headlight bulbs fitted(see project log)
    Now I need some sidelight bulbs to match.

      Tony if you look at my project log
      You'll see what headlight bulbs I used. I tried various leds in the sidelights but had trouble matching them up.
      Also they are a little awkward to get in and out, when I took the first ones out to change one of them came apart inside the lens and it was a pain to get it out.
