    FINALLY, the car is home

    *in the style of The Rock*

    Finally, the car HAAAAS come back......... Home!

    Picked it up this afternoon. Has been in the garage for a cambelt change and a waterpump, but also had the auxilary belt was changed and my antifreeze chaged as apparently it HAS to be red and not blue.

    Passed it's MoT with flying colours too, no advisaries. Even with the stupidly bright HIDs, harnesses, and no interior.

    Haven't had chance to get any good pics as it was dark when i got home from college, but i took a couple.

    I wasn't sure if anyone had seen the custom Metal Monkey dials i had done a few months back, so here they are in illuminated guise. I'm gonna take them out and put some diffuser film behind them and change the bulbs in a week or so




    Here's a crap picture of the HIDs, LED sidelights and how they look in my Morettes



    And here's another crap pic, this time of my Luke harnesses which i fitted on wednesday. They def take some gettting used to comapred to conventional belts

    I don't think so, as long as the harnesses are road legal and are fixed to the existing mounts then they are ok. That's my take on it anyways, i might have a false MoT for all i know
