    Spent the afternoon sorting out a few issues with my son's Loeb, then giving it a good wax and polish:

    You plan on turboing that thing? You better start spending money on drugs, like all the normal kids

    Thanks. Its a bit of a family thing. Wife had a C3, which died, so was replaced with a C4 Picasso. Dan's previous car was a Saxo.







    That said, my eldest son is currently driving an Astra whilst saving up for another Imprezza and my daughters drive a Polo R and Nissan Micra.

    Almost finished the boot build. Cloth needs to settle a bit more to get rid of the crease from being folded before gluing in place.

    So, Photobucket wants $399 for me to be able to post pictures of my car on here. It's not going to happen.

    So, it's been a while...

    Couple of changes to the car for this year. I've now fitted the Morette headlights, needed rebuilding and rewiring. I've fitted switchback bulbs in the indicator housing, so they act as DRLs.



    Also changed the chrome grill for a black one to match the lights.



    And fitted a usable rear tow hook:

    Thanks. Looking at a few things - roof tray with lightbar, custom interior, proper half cage, redo the gun box (it got damaged at a show) it's just finding the time at the moment.

    Few big plans in there. Good stuff.

    Having bought some Recaro CS's for my Clio; and then gone through the planning, organising etc of a custom re-trim. The desiding of what leather, stitching, design etc i wanted [Not to mention where to get it done]; was a 'mini-project' i really enjoyed and took quite some getting together. And i'm envious you've got all that to look forward to. I went fairly conservative on this car to blend in and look OEM+. If i was to ever do the same on the C2....i'd likely go a little more balls out !

    Do you have any ideas of what your intending on yours interior wise ?

    For the interior, again I'm taking my time to decide... Either Seatskinz covers or Code leather seats and look to have them coloured (not sure what colour yet though). Again, depending upon whether I get a full half cage, the rear seats my go and then look at a different boot build - definitely don't want to lose the amp/bass box. But, not rushing, a lot of the work will be done over the winter ready for next season.

    Custom made light switch. Looks great, but think this is what's causing the battery to go flat overnight...
