Thanks everyone for the kind words  :happy2:

Iv done a fair bit since I last updated but have had major computer problems so only been on the forum through my phone.  Now my computer is sorted though its time to update my build......

Hi Stu!!

Yeah the alarm was a proper pain in the bum!!!!!!!!!!!! After spending a small fortune it turned out to be the inner ignition micro switch - replaced that and all good so far  :pomppomp:

Ok loads of pics to follow so gonna do it step by step

I'v always had privacy glass in my cars and wanted the same in this car.  I personally don't like window film applied because in my experience it never dries right.  I priced up replacing the glass and although possible seemed a huge amount to spend on the glass - and I didn't like the idea of removing the spoiler to get the rear screen out.  I settled on some window blinds from a company called Sonniboy.  I went for these because these were the only ones I could find that had a one piece rear section.  The other kits I found all used a two piece rear screen blind which means that there is a blatant join line visible in the rear screen.  My car is a three door and it really was as easy as this sounds to install.  Pop the blinds in and walk away!!! Looks like privacy glass until you get really close to it and you can see the blind material.  Im really happy with the end result and like the idea that I can take them out in the winter months when its dark early so I can still see whos behind me.

The kit....

Thought I better fit better jack points as future plans means the car will be on the ramps a fair bit so S3 items were fitted.  I sprayed them Yellow to be identified easily



Rears fitted - didn't take a pic of the fronts but sure everyone has seen them before....

Sprayed the lower bumper with Plastidip - real easy stuff to use and, imho, looks the business.

Masked roughly around area.



Let dry and pealed area not wanted away to leave this....

Giving the Ed a spirited drive  :driver: and major misfire happened - engine light came on  :scared: Plugged in and misfire on 3 & 4.  I know the coil packs are a bit poo so hoped if they were replaced everything would be back to normal.  Got Red Top coil packs (R8 apparently) and a set of new plugs.  Installed and the car felt like it had a mini remap!!  I can only think the coil packs were on the way out since I picked the car up cause it absolutely fly's now.



They look kinda cool fitted too.....

How easy were the jacking points to fit, have thought of these considering how often i take my wheels off.

Any part numbers/cost?

Got boot mat and net from TPS - say your in the trade and they usually will give you 10% off. Iv never had to prove it so worth a go.

Here is where I got the part numbers and fitting guide for the jacking points - about a 20 min job. Rears were really easy fronts were tough to take originals out but S3 items went back in a treat

Done some more simple mods.....

Fitted Rev G DV as my Rev D was not holding its boost



Fitted the parts for boot pop and had it coded to open on the remote



Got fed up with the rain comming into the car on the way to work (I like to have the window open a little) so fitted wind deflectors.  Real easy to fit but removing the stickers that were on them was an absolute nightmare.



Fitted - Not sure I like the look of them fitted, but getting used to the new look. This kit didnt need any clips so I can always take them off without causing damage to the window rubber.
