Pretty much as it says above peeps, what have we all been up to today?

Today (and yesterday, and the day before) I have been working on my fiancees car while she has been on holiday in spain :)

New oil/oil filter
New air filter
New coolant sensor and coolant
Renewed alternator and power steering belts
Fitted new hose for windscreen washers (old one was split)
Fitted armrest I got from the local scrappy
Fitted exhaust trim onto the bumper - again from the scrappy
Sorted spoiler (stop it wobbling :lol: )
Fitted replacement rear window heater switch (old one didnt light up)
New bulbs in the numberplate lights (since one looked like this (and still worked! :lol:))


So what have you been up to? :)

Got bored with the little buttons so took the aftermarket stereo out, put Rover one back in, didn't work :mad: not talking to the clock display.

Looks like it'll be tomorrows job as well :rolleyes:

Fitted 2 replacement hinges for parcelshelf !



Fitted a LED ice white Festoon bulb in the Courtesy light



Which has a nice effect of a unearthly blue glow in the dark !



Phone camera had a LOT of trouble with this light ! , looks a LOT better in real life



All little bits , but at least done ! :D

LED ice white light ordered! My yellowy dim interior is hopeless at night. Are the covers easy to get off?

I've done a big one today on my zr. I've replaced the inlet manifold gasket, thermostat, coolant and fuel filter! Gonna got some new spark plugs tomorrow I think too to help it start better as I've not replaced them yet.



Half way through!



The offending IMG! You can clearly see how bad of a state it is

Searching through parts, found my turbo oil filter housing and turbo oil feed pipe. Moved the sharkfin spoiler to go to work for painting for the 25.

Replaced my wheel locking nuts with these:



Only £5.82 on ebay; Bargain!

(Replaced as the pins in my old locking key were beginning to break!!)

Although they would fit better if I cut about 6mm off the bottom... Maybe a future job? :)

Removed cam pulleys from the dead cylinder head (snapped cambelt last week) stripped all the other bits from it too, gave it a mild cleanup with some bogroll :p

Then threw the head onto my scanner, to let me make a CAD file of the flanges, to get one cut on the waterjet at uni.






Was hoping to have the new head/gaskets/belts today to fit... but looks like it's going to be monday now :(

Got it out of the garage and drove it down the street without the rad/intercooler/airbox/other pipes attached. It made a great noise :D
