So today I finished off adding all the goodies I had purchased over the last few week.

I installed my replacement dash cam in its proper location, pleased I can no longer see it.

New drivers view of dash cam.


How it looks behind the mirror. Nice unit (ddpia mini2) very easy to use with supplied app.


Could not get my STEBEL NAUTILUS "cOMPaCT" in the location of the old horn, so got the welder out and over engineered a new bracket.


All installed, very loud, just what I wanted.


Finally installed the QC30 in place of the lighter, easy to fit and no need to disassemble the fascia as I had believed.

Nice to have the battery voltage on display, easy to see if things are going wrong.

Next job is to route dash cam supply to rear door, intend to mount old Nextbase facing rear. Sorry it's all mundane stuff, but that's what's happens if it's your daily transportation and a road Princess.

Well that was a lot easier than I expected. Now have hardwired feed to my rear door mounted dash cam. Managed to find a switched 15A live feed to the wiper motor which keeps all the wiring internal to the rear door. Fused Dash cam hardwire kit a £6 from eBay, fully bench tested by me before installation, can't fault it. If anyone is thinking of doing the same it's the Yellow / blue/ silver band wire to the wiper, it's a ignition switched +12v feed.
Smile, your are on camera..

After the cars recent welding work I wanted to make sure it was protected as best it can be. Over a few evenings, I managed to get all the new metal coated in 3 coats of hammerite primer and black.

MOT'd mine today...

Last year it almost failed on the dreaded emmissions test, but somehow scraped through :(

Fitting a new Cat' along with top and bottom O2 sensors last October has clearly paid off - a clear pass with NO advisories. :woohoo:


IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS
