NCDC?

From there to drivers kick panel, then from there to roof via the drivers side sill.

Yup, 2013 - been meaning to figure out how the kick panel comes off for ages.. I've been neglecting the Omega  :-[

I thought all the aerial wires went that way - but then I found what looks an awful lot like one (coax, BNC style connectors) in the passenger side rear cubby where the Bose speaker would normally be - no idea what that one is for..
Oooooo, wonder if estate goes other way....

Definitely drivers side kick panel, then along the sill then up the OS 'D' post. :y

Just got to put all those bloody chavy bolts back in now.
You take them out before refurb?

Do the bolts actually do anything?
they can do it but will charge extra, and as I have orgasma gizmo whizzy thing... 8)
Guessing a cordless drill won't do it...   ...not that I'm going to refurb mine until spring.

Tried painting one of the four steel wheels I've got for the winter tyres - the trouble with it being cold is, it takes forever to harden.. and my clothes now have various blobs of gold (don't judge me) hammerite on them.

I think I'll just brush the other three off and sling some hub caps on them for this winter - and paint them properly when it warms up next year! (Black, not gold..)

yes that's what I used first time. Re fitting means all those threads have to be cleaned first too.

Having owned one, complete with poo-brown steering wheel, I can confirm that only Oyster beats it to the top of the gay list. Sorry Highlander, the truth is out ;D
