Well have done loads today...

Started off with installing remote central locking.

Took few hours to do but really useful in the dark! no more looking for a keyhole!

Took some pictures on my phone but they are turned out to be rather poo

So will only post best of the worst

Control unit fitted:


Wires everywhere buttrim is going back... :



Then in went to halfords to get some supplies



Two of four alloys were painted weeks ago, and i couldnt get myself round to finishing last two....
Although one of them was covered in primer...
Today we had great weather so thought i better crack on with these or I wont get them done this year...

So i started with:


and:


Paint and primer took ages to dry so didnt make much progress however should be done tomorrow.



and



The painted one will need another coat of paint and thats it!


Oh and pic a I took some time ago:


Still waiting on lowering springs.. its week and half sicne i paid... guy keeps saying they will posted this week........

looks good, will be interesting to see it lowered, you don't see many of these modified.
Where are you getting your 185/50/15's from? I'm after some from my corsa
