Very soon need to clean it, remove some scratches left on the roof and bonnet by an animal (assuming a cat), and give it a good winter wax layer...

Got some stickers on the way to put on, need to replace my current region sticker and AON stickers with new ones I have. May leave all this until after the winter though...

I have a mini-SMD conversion with new dial card and black Eonon facia coming up in October...

Going to re-do my spark plug cover as the paint isn't heat resistant so it's getting a bit rough where the water and dirt settle and become a part of it :(... Thinking vinyl wrap instead of paint this time...

Need to get my gearbox oil changed and linkages checked...

Maybe have a play in the engine bay painting some of the caps, new coolant would be benifitial soon, and header tank at the same time maybe...

Maybe off with the headlamp protectors and on with lightbrows...

Possibility of some exterior wrapping soon too...

2 new tyres on the front needs to happen soon too!

Once the winter is over a good detail to start it off for the year :D

Not much :lol:

A couple of secret projects involving vinyl.

A re-think on the tyre lettering. I like the effect, but I'm looking for something easier to apply and a little more hardwearing. (also a shade darker on the red, to make it more subtle)

A re-think on the center cap-covers, perhaps going with exposed nuts (wahey) and some custom center caps

Retrofitting electric folding mirrors

A science experiment with the rear boot opener button

Some canbus-safe LED numberplate light enclosures which are currently winging their way from germany.

Ideally:

Wrap roof black
Get rear bumper re-sprayed
Get the DAPs fitted
Mess around with the stickers on the back
Get wheels refurbed again
Angel eye headlights with another set of eyebrows
Twin exit exhaust

What is likely to get done:

Wrap roof black
Mess around with the stickers on the back
