What have you done to your car today?
 
If you're looking for somewhere to tell about your entire project plans, this isn't it. Just a little something about what you did today. Whether it's changing up your sound system, changing your oil, or finally finish up a big part of the project that you've been working on, etc., post it up here.

For me, I mounted my CB into the car. Just need to wire up the power and finish up my hidden stud mounting system for my 4' whips on the roof rack.

Today, actually just about an hour ago, I cut my stupid fender liners at the front of the wheel well, as they kept getting ripped down when off roading and then would scrape along the ground. So annoying. So I got out my knife and did some modification.. and rotated the tires. :)

Changed the battery in my key- winter has arrived and the central locking is getting a little grumpy early in the morning.

Mine was getting grumpy too, especially early mornings. I don't think thay liked being woken up that early to go to work :twisted: so I decided to renew the battery keys also. Actually I did both of them. :raz:

I just spent time looking lovingly at Fozzie, dreaming of places I'd rather be. :p

Last week I almost got a couplertec rust inhibitor fitter. All installed except the lead that runs to the back of the car. I have no idea how to get the lead from the engine bay to the inside rear wheel arch. Damn! And I thought I was doing so well. :furious:I can't see a way to safely run it under the car, so it looks like it'll have to go inside. I've never known how to get wires under the carpet or somewhere without making it look ike a dogs breakfast. Looks like I'll end up paying a sparky for this last bit :redface:

Keep your money Kerri. Run the wire through any handy rubber grommet (use something pointy to make a small hole first) in the firewall (make sure you have access to the grommet on the inside of the firewall) and along the inside of your sill panel, under the carpet or just tuck it under the plastic trim/kick panels to the rear wheel arch or strut tower or stick it to the inside your 1/4 panel, as long as you have good contact with the metal. If there is a loop on the end of the lead instead of a sticky pad, just tec screw it to an inner panel or use an existing screw or bolt hole.

Let us know how you get on.
