Most of the staff from the last place want to follow me to where I am now haha... about the same distance bud, just north instead of west
    Nice one.....long may they suffer .

    Shouting gets you nowhere mate.

    People will listen when you speak at a nice composed pace and level.......ive had people in power shout at me and others....i just get up and walk away.

    They look stupid, not me.

    • Not been on much as been so manic at work. But, all of a sudden and no warning I have condensation in my nearside headlight quite badly. Been searching online and first point of call will be to check the drain holes but can't for the life of me fins an image of where they are to check if they're blocked. Next step would be to check they are sealed still and redo them if needed...

          • To fix it completely, I took out the headlight and ran a thin bead of silicone around the seal where I could see the rubbers failed.
            condensation issue never came back

              • There is about 14 things on this car I'd like to do to my vxr
                the first is the rear exhaust trim. Is that attached to the bumper or do you attach it to the end of the exhaust?
                2nd is the led lighting. I'm assuming the bulb upgrades are fairly easy to do and reasonably priced? But the additional lighting (especially the boot) did you have a hard time wiring it up the length of the car to the fuse box? Or did you splice live wires in the respective places?
                thanks in advance

                • The exhaust trims are held on at 3 points bud, 2 underneath and easy to access, the 3rd is at the top but the exhaust pipe restricts the access to that one... LED headlight bulbs are a straight swap, LED daylight running lights in the bumper are ignition live and the boot lighting is just plugged into the existing plugs bud...
