Both rear boot cards back in after a scrub, respray and 'flocking' on the arm-rest bit. Look tidy and presentable now with the newly painted floor.

Re: Got my 4WD system working again on my '05.
UPDATE
Decided to replace the link plug with a button on the dash, advantage is if the garage decides
to 'try' it in 4WD, I can switch off the feed from the vacuum switch to the controller, which
will stop it going into 4WD (Flashing light!).. So bought a 2nd hand Heated R window switch off Epay and
was going to fit it on the R/H side of the 4WD switch panel, where there is a big round blank, but thought
that was too tempting to press! So had a look in the parts catalogue and see what should go in the blanked
hole that is in the Fog light panel and it turns out it's a 'coin tray'!



So, had a look on Epay for a 2nd hand Fog light switch, and luckily, found that it was the same switch body as
(I know I'm going on a bit here but you are the only guys I can talk to {Live on my own/Cabin lockdown fever etc..)
the switch I've already got, Bonus! So soldered some tails onto the contacts to find out which pin did what



With the help of the wiring diags...



and decided not to bother with the 'ON' light or illumination, but just have it as a push-to-close switch.
Made up a harness and literally took me 5 mins to fit....





And Bingo, it works too!



I'll get my coat.....

Ordered a second hand black carpet from an 06 model breaking on ebay. Arrived very quickly. Tore off all the thick insulation on the bottom otherwise the new floor panels that were welded in would quickly disappear once any damp gets settled in.

Plan is to order some rubberised soundproofing and have the carpet sit on that instead.

Steam cleaned and washed ready for install next week.

It looks like they are M7 x 1, instead of M8 x 1.25 thread...



So...

The thread is some UNC. I did almost the same as you but I used a M8 helicoil and greased the drill and thread cutter so that I did not get too much metal flakes into the car to prevent corrosion.

Now the car's all welded up as well as painted, I started lining the boot with sound insulation. It's 5mm thick malleable rubber coated in 1mm aluminium foil. I rollered it into the floor and wheel arches then got the side panels back on. For reference, I used half a pack of this stuff:

www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/stinger-roadkill...dening-material.html

So, in total, I used approx 18sq feet with some minor overlap.

Here's a few pics:

All put back together:

I did a circuit of my neighbourhood which is up/down a hill trying to keep driving consistent (which was pretty easy given that there was no cars around). I recorded a 7-decibel drop in max noise and 4-decibel drop on average over the journey. My back box is blowing so I expect this reading to drop a fair bit after I fix that too, but it was audibly quieter.

Tomorrow I'll take the seats out, line the floor with a double layer on the transmission tunnel. Then it's in with the new carpet I bought and some new floor mats on top of that. Finally getting the inside of the car feeling like a proper car now instead of a tin can. I still have another full box so if I have enough spare I might think about getting the roof lined (as I think member Keithy and Ricky) did?
