Washed.

Fitted new Blueant Supertooth 3 bluetooth HF kit. Looked at Parrots online but way more expensive and need big fitting job - i'd need to pay for it as I'm not that clever, so prob adds at least another $100 making total around $500. Supertooth 3 now $199 - no brainer :)

Polished the Bora's exhaust tips up to a mirror finish, then pulled the driver's seat out and removed the wire for the EXTREMELY annoying seatbelt warning chime (VAG-COM cannot disable this)

Found a mint stubby antenna under the seat also so was pretty pleased with that! I am more pleased about the lack of dong dong dong dong every time I start the engine though!

cleaned it, was getting rediculously filthy but now it looks really sharp.

(on a side not i started scrubbing the grease out of the engine bay in the escort, lots of hours to go but it is looking sooooo nice in there now! even managed to find the original rocker cover sticker hiding underneath the gunge)

Stripped out the interior and removed some awesome aluminium kick plates that were rivited on and red carpet glued over the original ::) Tomorrow I will wash out the inside out and reassemble, then its onto replacing the gearbox

No worries, Shane and Cath (owners) are very nice people and are nuts on cars and motorsport.

Removed boot seal and rear lights, fish oiled up behind them and replacing with new lights and seal, Replaced rear left door handle, and stood looking at it for a while... decided i need more time in life.

I now have boxes and boxes of stuff to put onto the 90 from the other 90 that I just stripped - just need the time to do it!

Fitted new rear disc pads, and also halved the pad area with a grinder, should be good now.
Skill is, sucessfully tightrope walking across the Niagra Falls.
Intelligence is, having the sense not to do it.
