Also planing on colour coding bumpers, so order myself a set of bumpers from later models, after some sanding:





Now they need filled and primed ready for soem top coat after i strip the front bumper.


As by standard XNs have no rev counter and instead a big old analoge clock. So got hold of some white dials from a 106 GTi with a rev counter and fitted that yesterday, works magical. Dont have pics up yet.

And finnaly:



This is the proposed postion of the air injection kit, however i need some hosing which i have ordered and am waiting arrival of before i fit it.

Also, im in the middle of colour coding my mirror covers which are in the hut right now waiting on primer to dry over night. ;)

Have been busy working a lot recently, not much time to be on the computer these days. Anyway. New filter arrive, here's the old one and the new one, and after i fixed the flexi tubing so it sits better:




Heh, need to give the engine bay a little clean. :D

My black mirror covers aswelll were not the nicest, so they had to be sprayed:


And then put on:


Got myself some new white dials as well to replace the hideous analoge clock.
Before:

After:


The calipers and drums were very rusty, here is my drums after one of them had been wire brushed:


Then painted:



This is how it looks right now with the calipers painted as well as the drums.


Yes i know it needs it clean :p.

Also got some 40mm lowering springs on their way. And im in the middle of freshening up the interior by spraying a lot of and replacing the door cards and maybe the seats. However might just get some covers as i dont want to over spend on the car.
