Wahey go me, got the infamous hot tag on my diary, nothing done to the car today but have notice some peeling on the tinting film so during the week will be ripping it off two of the windows and redoing it this week, good job I bought an extra roll in case of such a problem. Note to self; must be done by Thursday evening at the latest due to the in laws visiting from London on Friday morning for the weekend.
Took the car for a nice spin about today and cleaning that throttle body has definitely smoothed out the acceleration and tickover. I greatly underestimated the difference that this could make. As I didn't have a new tb gasket I disconnected the air box and sprayed the cleaner inside the tb, let it do its job and wiped it all clean. My tb was black and really gummed up, doesn't look like it had ever been cleaned. I'm currently looking for the uim and tb from an st200 to put on if anybody is selling them for a good price, also smoothed out headers or any other performance enhancing mods though the above are topmost of my list.

Iceblue leds ordered for the internal lights last night. Two footwell lights, two map reading lights, three overhead/roof lights, vanity mirror lights in sun visors. Looking for extra lighting to put in the boot also.
As the car is used as a dog vehicle also I've ordered some customised warning stickers for the boot. Will post photos once everything has been delivered and fitted.

Fingers crossed the ice blue led's for the internal of the car will be here tomorrow. Also ordered a new dremel and new cold air feed pipe in red for the custom dual feed airbox. That should arrive Thursday or Friday. Got to check the brakes tomorrow as have a strange 'warbling' noise when they're applied. Seems to be from the drivers side front but the pads and discs were replaced just before I bought the car, receipts seen.

Ice blue internal led's arrived half hour ago and are now fitted, footwells, three internal ceiling lights, two map reading lights and sun visor lights all done. Will try to get a decent photo tonight when it's darker and show a decent effect.

Car washed and waxed, plastic tray (?) under the rear drivers side, just in front of the rear wheel, had dropped so secured it back, headlights realigned now the Mrs isn't using the car at night anymore, got rid of the old customised second air feed to the airbox and replaced it with a larger diameter 2 ply red flexible hose, took it for a 20 mile test drive and acceleration is smoother and increased, tickover also feels less lumpy. Warning dog stickers fitted to the boot screen and rwo rear windows.
