Your welcome buddy, just remember to keep us updated with plenty of photos.
Also you could consider starting a thread in our project section :)

Use Photobucket and follow these T9 easy instructions: :)

Ok, first make sure that you have both TC and Photobucket opened and next to each other to make things easier.

Have your reply box in TC open and ready to go. Now go to Photobucket!


1) On Photobucket, go to the photo you want to display, if you look underneath the photo you will see this:

Email & IM
Direct
HTML
IMG

2) Click your mouse once on the box to the right of the word: IMG and it will turn blue in colour.

3) Then with your cursor still on the blue, now right click and another dialogue box will open.

4) Now left click again on the word: Copy

5) Now go back to your open "Reply" box and left click once to start your cursor flashing.

6) Now right click your mouse and you will see another box of words open up and you will see the word: Paste.

7) Now left click on the word: Paste

8) Now the URL of the photo has now been added into your post. Press: Enter or Return on your keyboard after the URL, this will put your cursor after the URL so you can start to write your post with what you want to say.

9) Now at the bottom of the reply page you will see the words: Submit Reply and Preview Post in small rectangular boxes - left click on: Preview Post to check that everything is ok including your picture, BEFORE you click on the: Submit Reply box to upload your post onto the site.

And there you have it

If you upload them to Photobucket first, this will give you the option in "edit" to rotate the photo clockwise or anticlockwise.

To be honest buddy, I don't see where you would want to fit any further exterior mods ?-/
Remember the old trap which is easy to fall into, very easy to get carried away and regret what you have done later on. Take a step back and think about the exterior mods very carefully before you proceed.

Do yourself a favour and see if you can view a car with that on first. I have done this myself where something looks good on a photo but pants on the car :(

I would be failing in my duty if I did not point these things out to you first :)

Electric mirrors have certainly been available on this model. My parents have 12 plate 1.4 SE with electric mirrors. Complete aside but their 1.4 petrol model is spineless compared to the 1.3 litre CDTi. You have made a wise choice in going for the diesel engine. It's Fiat derived motor and it's nice to drive even without mods and maps.

Yes the car has elec mirrors i just wanted to make sure they would work on my car as its a 5 door but awsome i will be geting these and testing my theory. And yes i wanted the diesel cos i did research on wat would have better mpg and be cheaper on the insurance but still have some grunt and look nice and this ticked every box i needed lol. Im going to start wraping differnt interior parts in chrome blue soon starting with the vents ;)

Fan spray washer jets are pretty heavy in terms of draining the screen wash tank. Cars with headlight wash often have huge tanks - 7 litres is not unusual.

True but i was draining the fluid all the time tryin to get the jets to clean now i just give them a flick and the jobs agooden :) but thanks for info. And i dnt have head light washers but ill see how long this tank lasts. Pitty i cant do rear 1 as its so tiny. I think the beging of my little venture is goin well now i need to find some 1 who puts the blue LEDs in the rest of the bits in the car. If some 1 buys spare parts and puts them in and sells them is best chance i have as with the switches ive already changed. But hay slow and steady wins the race. So far all the switces and lights and jets all together has been low cost and knowing some decent people has helped. Were il go next im not sure
