Did some work on it today.. that mesh grille is gone - although the original now looks a bit plain, so I've repainted the mesh black and we will see how that looks tomorrow. Also did the badge whilst I was there.
Went on to the boot badge. Swore a lot. Eventually removed the tiny bloody circlip and replaced the badge.. tried refitting said circlip. swore some more, decided to return to that tomorrow..
Gave the car a good clean and found some minor scratches to polish out, then set to the interior. New door seal went on easy as pie - dont know why I was told this is a tricky job? Then set to the chavved switchgear, sorted the switches by the steering wheel, the armrest ones and the mirror / headlight adjustment ones. Also gave the seats a good clean to try and sort out the marks from the old sunroof leak.
More to go on that tomorrow but my back was giving me grief from the bending over backwards swearing at circlip times.
So tomorrows revised task list
Fit up the teledials
Finish the boot badge
Finish replacing switchgear
Polish out scratches
Have a beer
I'm astounded by peoples reactions to the car - I've had some nice looking cars in my time but this one takes the biscuit in terms of peoples response, everyone loves it! even my old xjs didnt get as many comments.
