You have done in a year what I’m planning to do in maybe 5!

That’s practically a new car!

Do the quilted carpet covers make a solid difference to noise and insulation?

We’re the bonnet struts tricky to fit?

What coolant tank did you go for?

:joy: I’m retired and have an obsessive personality. You should see my guitar builds/collection!

Quilted carpets - I haven’t noticed any difference with noise/insulation. Was more of an aesthetic thing as the carpets were tatty.

Struts - a doddle to fit (easier than the bloody radiator!)

Tank - Alloyworks off Ebay

Looks well , very good list of goodies :grin:

Just a thought… Smoked side repeaters ?

Good call!

For me mate, they would sit right with the colour scheme.

Thanks! My OG carpets are also tatty. And I’ve been looking at the alloyworks tank.

Agreed. Good shout.

Can I ask what seat covers you got and are they any good? I’m not a fan of leather seats but having been quoted £300 per seat to have them re trimmed in cloth i am considering covers.

I’ll try and remember where I got them and let you know.

What was the carplay unit like to fit mate? I’ve been wanting to do that for a while now.:+1:

Quite straight-forward with the right fitting kit/wiring kit.

Which make/type of rear parking sensors did you fit?
A mid I want to do with the card limited rear vision.

Just a cheap kit from Amazon. Work a treat. Only hard part is feeding the cable for the buzzer from the boot in to the cockpit!
