    another mod completed

    My latest mod was fitting leccy mirrors.

    For some of you this is an easy job, romove tweeter cover, plug in mirror and switch etc job done.

    Well for me it had to be different, the wiring was in the dash but no plugs in the doors.

    so sourced 2 door looms, mirrors and switch from a member off here, stripped both doors and swapped the looms over, refitted the door cards and all working well. Just need to get the relay in for heated mirrors and replace tweeter covers. From start to finish about 4 hours this evening

    nice job though

    where's the how-to for replacing door looms though?! I assume the door loom just plugs into the connector in the doorshut?

    you do need the relay, the heated mirrors work off the rear demister switch, but without the relay no heat in the mirrors.

    Relay now fitted and we now have heat in the mirrors.

    must sit down and work out the how to fit looms

    now another mod fitted and will post up pics later as i have a few others to do,

    removed mk4 sxi version 2 badges off the front doors and replaced with smaller mk5 sxi badges, looks much better. Have also got a headlight bracket repair kit and fixed my angel eyes properly this time. Just gonna fit a full set of new sidelight bulbs and swap headlights over next week.
