  1. Mine is turning out to be one of those difficult but worth it cars! Did you find a solution to your pulling to the left issue?
  2. Headlight changed. Slight condensation in both at the moment. Saw a trick where you can take the bulb out, dry it with a hair-drier and then seal the top with silicone. The other headlight needs a polish. Its pretty bad at the moment so I'll try the trick with toothpaste and see if that makes a difference.

    See if I can get some before and after shots in too.
