I then put it all back in and gave him a treat by cleaning the seat's

just remembered that on the way home the other thing was the lights flickering on and off :P
oh how did i forget that ahahah

it was due to the connector (for when it was a flip front) melting out in its past and creating a crappy connection LOL

Posted Image
Posted Image

and then put some heat stuff on the floor just laid there for the time being

Posted Image

Posted Image

so i then i put the carpet and the other stuff all back together!

Ahh good old Cols! Don't know what I'd do without them, I still go there once in a while for emergency things, got a replacement steering column there not long ago after the splines disappeared on my one, good prices and good service. :thumbsup:

Next time you're there take a drive up to Astwood Bank and say hello, it's a really fun little stretch of road from Feckenham to mine ;D

At the moment I am, but as it happens I have my last two exams tomorrow and Friday, so I'll be home Friday evening! Shows how much revision I'm doing, being on TMF when I should be doing some maths questions >_<

Sunday I'll be going to the TMF meet near Merry Hill if it's on, doubt I'll be busy on the Saturday though :D
