Phew!

Haha, thankfully not! I was out to the car about 7.30 this morning so it was the moisture

Yeah, that would have been hellish start to the day!

Looked for the replacement exterior trim, was pleasantly surprised by this:



Then realised this wasnít glanzschwarz (the m sport gloss black trim) so got the correct part number, which is the same with a slightly different paint finish, got treated to this:



Ludicrous for a 6-9 inch gasket with a metal strip attached, £79 hike for it being Gloss theyíre the same amount elsewhere that I have looked so far! Considering buying the plain one and seeing if I can swap over the gaskets or see if I can paint it etc.

More research required first because I may be able to do something like we did for the long trim, damn Ďshadowlineí

Cheapest I managed to find the trim was £86, although from forum scouring it seems some dealers will sell it for circa £65, either way still far too expensive for what it is! I think Iíll buy the normal black one and see what I can manage to sort out to get it in line... I think a few coats of lacquer will add enough shine!

Worth a go for what could be anywhere between £80-£150 saving if it fails then itís only £25

May try and re glue the interior trim too, ive had it off before but cannot remember how hard it was to remove!

Got round to fixing the sagging rear trim earlier, here it is in place:



This almost caught me out, tucking it behind the seal:



Noticed the other side has done the same

So took it off and did the same thing with some spray glue to adhere it back into place




If anyone tries this in the future, look out for these metal clips as they fell off of the light unit on both sides and you may have to dig them out of the panel:



Happy that theyíre done, glue soaked through on a patch on the second trim, but luckily the car is so dark it wonít be noticeable! Iíve been deliberating replacing the car so donít want to buy a new one for something that isnít noticeable

Had an unplanned wet vac of the passenger footwell when I got home, a can of beer split and leaked out it stinks so hoping the extra liberal dowsing scrubbing and vac sorts it. Left my rear windows open to air it, hopefully the smell isnít there tomorrow morning! If it is Iíll repeat the steps, Iíve oeft the rubber mat in the garden to dry out and hopefully the same outcome!

Placed an order for several little pieces for the car, most prominently the rear window trims (non gloss) and the coolant hose.

My drivers headlight also stopped working, I did deliberate reverting back to halogen, however looking at the price of osram nightbreakers it was cheaper to get an entirely new hid set! That has also been ordered, hopefully get round to it this weekend, currently nursing man flu
