The red accents work very well. 馃憤

Cheers. Once I converted the interior from cream I felt there was a bit too much black and wanted to lift it a bit and am pleased with the red highlights without it being too much.
The lip is just a random one off eBay. I will see if I can find the make.

They are just standard 100W 1.5Ohm resistors. I wired them up to some OEM connectors and job done.

Next job while I have a couple of days off work, I noticed a tiny squeak up behind my head so poked around and found the high level brake light is not very solid. Removed it (a tricky job) to find the gasket is basically dry and will be replacing that. You can鈥檛 buy the gasket on its own so I will be making one, which should, tighten it up nicely.

New gasket made and fitted. The light is now tight and squeak free

So next up on the lock down mod list is a Gen 2 engine x brace. Trial fit suggests it will work great, just waiting for the support bar to mount it too which will run over the top of the throttle bodies. Should have it for the weekend.
Give that the Gen 2 has increased chassis rigidity a portion of it will come from this, so figured can鈥檛 hurt, plus it looks cool

So it seems the brace bar fits exactly between the chassis legs which is a bonus. Hoping with just a simple move of the power steering reservoir it will all bolt in nicely.
