Nice updates! It looks great in those pictures. Good to hear you’ve had some decent trouble free motoring out of it too!

Still curious to see what improvement you can get on those seats. I think theylll come up a treat.

And I would agree, those screws just look like regular PZ-2 heads from the picture?

Love it!
And if you are struggling with those screws, take a dremel to them and use a big slotted driver.

Greetings all!

Having all of this snow has at last left with me some time to tackle the '£10' Aero seats.

I had got these off the bay in very early January and to be honest I had unloaded them into the garage and not really inspected them at all.

So having ordered these;

I went about cleaning and feeding the seats - starting with the passenger front first - this is what it looked like at first;

20180303_100834 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Intensive cleaner doing it's thing;

20180303_101201 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

All cleaned and dried looking rather better;

20180303_102525 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

20180303_102539 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Suffice to say it was FILTHY!

20180303_103746 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Encouraged by the results, I moved on to the very grotty driver seat.......before.......

During;

20180303_105316 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

As you can see the intensive cleaner went straight through the dodgy matched dye!

After;

Passenger seat now fed with the conditioner;

20180303_112411 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

20180303_112420 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

On to the driver's seat - much better but more applications of conditioner needed;

20180303_113328 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

All in all - I am delighted - the rear seats all look great!

Rear headrests

Not bad for a tenner!

Good 'ole Gliptone!

Greetings!

So are these a clue as to what I took on yesterday?

20180324_112035 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Before long it looked like this;

20180324_121612 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

And then all of a sudden I had achieved this;

20180324_161626 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

20180324_161647 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Feeling very pleased with myself - As we know I am not the most practical of men, which would probably explain why I didn't get on so well with rear seats.........

I cannot believe the difference the seats make - I had forgotten how wonderful these Aero armchairs are!

Anyway - a quick bath for the old girl to celebrate!

20180405_141027 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

So inside there was;

As you can see - most needed;

Got another couple of very little but very satisfying jobs done on the old girl yesterday;

1. Fitted the 'turbo' grill badge;

20180411_160936 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

2. Took out, cleaned, oiled and re-fitted the noisy interior temp sensor - those of you with either a 9K or an OG 9-3 will know just how noisy these get when they get clogged up with dust;

20180411_160440 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Oftentimes it is the case that the little jobs are very rewarding!

More jobs started today.

The engine bay is more than a bit of a mess - another inheritance from it's slumber in the DCA yard........So it had looked like this;

20171219_133334 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

After some cleaning it has started to look a little better;

20180413_150937 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Particularly pleased with the delivery pipe;

20180413_150944 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

Obviously more to do...........

So I went to fit the replacement indicator unit;

20180413_143706 by Mark Blewitt, on Flickr

However when I went to fit the 'new to me' unit - the lens came away from the housing.........some glue beckons...........

So short term plans;

1. Get the 'good' spoiler fitted
2. Thermostat - combined with coolant flush
3. Silicone hoses - cannot decide which route to take with these - Black maptun ones from Neos or the Ali express ones.........
4. Fit the CD changer I have - anyone got a C-bus Clarion lead or a suitable 'cage' to secure it?

Longer term plans;
1. Wheels - 16" Exposed nut Super Aeros are the dream!
2. Tyres............
3. Have the Air con looked at/re-gas
4. Front armrest


I'm sure there is more......
