Removed all the remaining wiring from behind the dash and half of the sound deadening

I put the dash "spine/skeleton" back in as it's been moved so many times out of my way it was starting to annoy me. And then put the dash panel back on. All held in with just 10 screws instead of the 6,347 I took out to get it out in the first place

Glad I kept the spine as the dash would have been all floppy and looked crap

Have thrown my switch panel in too to see what it looked like, although there's probably only going to be the starter and water pump on the switch panel, I will have to think of some other stuff to use the switches for?? Arming nitrous maybe

Purchased on the 24th of May, delivered on 2nd of July...

Good old parcelfarce.

Had to track down the parcel, speak to different people to get the custom charge number because they hadn't sent me one in the post, ring up and try pay the charge 3 times but the automated phone service doesn't work.

Tried paying online 5 times until it went through.

Paid for delivery to be delivered last Saturday for an extra £12. Didn't turn up.

Rang them again Wednesday at parcel farce, who then messaged the Rotherham depot where it has been for nearly a month to get them to deliver it....

Taken longer to deliver it 40 miles than it did to travel from the US to the UK

He ya go. Its quite a decent little thing. Think it might have been 100 quid when I bought it

Doesn't come with fuses, or if it did iv lost them

I remember mainly getting it because it has the push button to start

I don't know, when he crashed it was down to one of the bolts on a brake caliper falling out and the caliper falling off from what I can remember. Not too long after that I stopped going on fduk
