At least you know who to leave the car to in your will!

Hi Rob

Just a Quick Q ; those seats look great -what have you used on them to recondition the leather?

I used CarPro Inside and Leather cleaner. It's excellent stuff.

I created a bit of a problem with the sun visors when I fitted the bigger rear view mirror which contains the screen for the reversing camera. So I asked Kohl Rod & Custom Ltd to modify the visors from the GT donor car, reshaping and re-covering them. They did a lovely job. Problem solved.









Reverse, tail and brake lights working.





Rubbish adhesive supplied with my centre brake light, it fell off as soon as the car moved. Need to make up some sort of bracket for it.



Also Kohl re-covered this bit so I screwed it back on.






I also started sorting out some power bits for the remote locking. Got it connected to permanent live and the remote locking works. Well the passenger side does, driver's door does nothing and that's the one I've got all the covers fully fitted on. I bet a wire is disconnected.

Boot unlock also does nothing, need to check that.

Traced the right cables for the immobiliser module, just need to wire it in now.

Finally I have tyres!!



I even have a Skoda this week to carry them in.


Chris at Finer Details has coated the wheels in Carpro CQuartz DLUX and CQuartz Finest to give them maximum protection from brake dust and dirt. Pics soon. They feel sooo smooth.

I went for Bridgestone MY02s - there don't seem to be that many available in this size, and the Bridgestones were a good price too :)

Very tempted to get some tyre lettering. Too much?

Bit too low profile for lettering in my opinion; what about a discreet decal on the rim of the wheel?

Before the tyres went on, my wheels were coated with CarPro CQuartz DLUX and CQuartz Finest by Finer Details NZ.
They feel smooooth.



I forgot to check the wheel bolts. Will need to buy new ones as the stock ones are a different shape. Doh.
This wheel looks awesome in place :D
