    my boro AW11

    long overdue for an update, and cant be assed finding my old thread :B

    sidelight/parklight contacts have corroded to the point where they no longer conduct electricty. this is bad.

    buy two truck/trailer outline markers and some figure 8 wire and get to work.

    the end result...





    a bit rice i know, but they work damned well, far better than the original ones did (i have a separate bulb in the housing for the indicators, which work fine)

    Nah, it's too ghetto to be rice

    But seriously, I think ingenuity and functionality excludes/supercedes rice, good job.

    In some strange way it kind of looks cool?

    pulled 2/3 of the interior of the AW11 out tonight.

    my car is so JDM yo! found ~1500 yen under the carpet. one of the owners in japan musta dropped it in there :B

    now im sure no-one will be able to steal my aw. not only does it have no battery and a non-functioning alternator, it has no seats :P

    the things you find when you strip out the interior of your car...

    pulled the firewall carpet, and there they were, large as life...



    top mounting points for a race harness. also found a second pair on the floor behind the drivers seat.

    also did some plastic 'welding' with my soldering iron on the tunnel cover...



    kinda hard to make out, but it was cracked pretty badly, so i used my soldering iron to melt the plastic back together. got the idea from an article on repairing cracked motorbike fairings in one of dad's magazines
