So a few little jobs tackled this week making use of the nice light evenings we have had -
I bought some LED number plate bulbs as the lighting of the rear plate was pretty poor, removing the bulb holders I think I worked out why -
Pretty ropey! So with a good soak in AS G101 and a good scrub they came up like new, as I had bought new LED bulbs I though I may as well fit them -
So whilst round at the rear I removed the plate, as from previous experience its a place that dirt and grime builds up so benefits from a good clean - can often reveal horror stories from peoples previous attempts to mount plates but this wasn't too bad -
A good degrease with G101 and rinse off it was looking much better and seemed an ideal opportunity to fit my plate -
So that then prompted the same treatment at the front although less grimey the stock plate was catching now and again so on with a reduced size plate i ran on my NA. It looks really small on the workbench but when on the car its relative and never caused me a problem before -
Whilst round at the front I needed to remove the lights, I wanted to throughly clean and degrease in behind the headlights and also replace the bulbs with LED variants (sidelight and indicator) I also had an HID kit to fit which is in, but now having second thoughts after reading peoples experiences with fires/melting/earthing etc. it currently looks like this awaiting its eyes to be refitted -
Whilst doing the lights i found the drivers side unit had a hole cut in it, not really sure why, it was covered over with thick black tape??
So thats where I am for now, remains to be seen if the HID kit remains in place or I switch back to standard bulbs. Whilst the headlights were out I had the lenses cut/polished and they look much better, looking forward to getting them back on the car and will post some more pics soon.
