    Later in the day, from the previous post, I did some more stuff. The LHD tail light for the track car got some more cleaning. Still full of Finnish dirt, I sprayed water into the light and flushed out almost all of it. I also noticed that the reflector was missing some chrome on the bottom one...

    I tried out some blue headlight bulbs that I found in the cabrio. As I expected, they made the light more white, but at a cost of brightness. So I took it out again immediately. While my friend was over, I borrowed one of his wheels. It looks pretty good. I couldn't lower my car as the jack was...

    I tried to put the two wires from the arm rest in with the two existing wires that send power to the locks. Again, the relay in the arm rest switches just buzzed. Out of curiosity, I tried to manually lock/unlock the door while it was plugged in. The door locks quickly jumped back and forth...

    Continuation of last post... Test fitting and looking good. It looks really shiny in the photos. Time to do the left door, and this time I did it much better. One of those little plastic clips was broken but I found a couple in my stores. The Nissan anti slip mat worked well here. Looks...

    Well, I again didn't upload for ages... So, here are the relays for the seat heaters. I only need 2, but I got one for free. Again, the welded bosses holding the coilpacks on broke. Really annoying, this time I'm going to swap the heads over, which will be a big job... At least that's an...

    With the fabric traced, they were ready to cut. Stupid me wrote L and R on them and realised that, because the fabric is very thin, the ink is visible on the other side. So I did them much smaller on the right two. Not that I even needed to specify which side as I'm sure they're the same, and...

    Oops, I've got to do another double post! So, the heating pads arrived. Faster than expected. They're nice and soft, and very long. They've got one end of a plug on each of them. Which is very useless. They came with some sticky foil strips. After a little research, I found that these are...

    Finally, some rain. Today, my resistors arrived for the steering wheel buttons. Some other stuff arrived too. Including a free dashboard mat. Which I would not have gotten if it wasn't free. It actually works really well, it's quite amazing how well things stick onto it .It would look better...

    Hogrings and the fabric samples arrived. I'll see what I can do without hogring pliars. As for the fabric, I like the charcoal grey more, as I expected. I'll need to see them against the seat and in the car. Like I said, I might get more fabric for the door cards just to match it up better...

    Continuing one final time from the previous post! I had a look at the fabric of the seat once it was separate. It's sewn together quite simply. So I ran a blade down the seam and split the fabric down. I also drew around myself on the foam as I'm going to be adding a little extra foam to hold...

    Continuing on from the last post again... So I've got my seats, and they look really good. But I'm not putting them in yet. I've got 3 big plans for these. For one of these plans, I need to measure the inner fabric... Bottom, back to front: 47cm Bottom, right to left: 32cm Top, right to left...

    Continuing on from the last post... I had to give the preface tail light a good clean. A lot of the roads in Finland are dirt roads, and in the summer it becomes very dry and dusty. Almost like driving on sand. So a lot of dust was inside the tail light, particularly as a part of the light above...

    Woah, I haven't updated in a long time. I've been quite busy doing extra work and lots of car stuff as well as my other hobby! So, these photos are over a few weeks. I've never actually washed my microfibre cloths. I usually just barely hang on with miniscule clean patches, or buy new ones. It...
