Got some new soles for my shoes
No expense spared
Really needed to get rid of the barely legal tread on two and the slow puncture on another that did get a bit quicker needing to be pumped up every 4 days
But steering feels so light and at 70 there is substantially less noise than with the Dunlop's

Debadged the boot and looks just as good as I thought
Very subtle

Got some orange spray on the way for my mudflaps to bring them in line with everything
Will also have to get some lacquer and then I'm redoing the aluminium at the bottom of them as the original lot is hanging off

I am always wondering why people debadge their car and leave the advertisement at the license plate on??? That's one of the first things i removed. ;)
Looking forward to your orange mudflaps! :)

So first thing that was sorted was the mudflaps
Had them off and cleaned them up
Sprayed them orange then got some aluminium strips diyed
Went for a brushed finish then put on some lacquer to stop any deterioration

Next thing was spraying the glovebox with this plastidip spray
Very good stuff as it can easily be pulled off but its expensive so I am reluctant to pull off
Haven't got a picture of the glovebox yet as there was an area that came out blotchy and I'm still in the process of sanding down and respraying that particular area to smooth it off but its difficult to sand

Most recent addition now was the DRLs
The proudest moment yet as I was really stuck as to how I'd get the wiring in places and all this
In the end I've put them on a switch and the wires for that switch go down the side of the drivers side
I had to get a bamboo stick with taped to the end to get it through
The led strips only worked in parallel with each other
Next step is to get some 3M tape and neaten up the sticking to the grille

The DRLs on a switch are working well
Had to move them up to just below the bonnet as they kept coming unstuck so are now just straight instead of curved

Also I might try and get another pair of the led strips to try and make them work as they would look nice having the straights and the
That other picture was just a mock up after doing that othat one side and copying it over

And ive also had to lose the led sidelights at the minute as the passenger side bulb just decided to die
The smds were quite wobbly in the casing so over time they've just fallen apart
Only lasted about 10 months so don't buy cheap smd based LEDs on eBay
So I've got some cree led bulbs on order and in the meantime I've gone back to the standard bulbs

Not been on here in a while as I had hit instagram more and honda karma but done a few things in the mean time

Recently have resprayed some of the interior with a peelable orange spray
So the glovebox is a neater orange but along with the stereo and air vents
Pictures will follow

For a while had some mini spotlights as DRLs and they worked rather well
Until water got into them and they started flashing
Got my eye on some which will fit perfectly into the gap below the number plate on the lower grille

Yellow headlight bulbs came and went

Made up some headrest covers in an orange fabric from where I used to work

Orange caliper paint has arrived so that will go on soon when I have chance to get the wheels off and have a good clean

Had numerous sidelight bulbs in and out ranging from cree to high numbers of smds
currently got some with less smds as I feel they will actually last but Im now at halfords and have my eye on some of their brightest options

Mugen pedals have come in and theyre still in so no problems there

Another recent one is the change to flat blades
Look neater and anything was better than how bad mine got beofre they were changed but we shall see if these last for just as long

Paint your wiper arms, like me, see attached pic, also custom painted grill, subtle but distinctive.

Just noticed the wording
The pedals are still in, it was just the bolt covers that are gone

I do like that
I have been thinking of going PMM on them
i saw someone else online who has done the rear in blue and when bodymatched they do look quite good

Here is also something of the stereo out just to give some idea of the layers that come off the front
