Any excuse not to drive it J.... Driver Big lol

If you didn't have all those extras, it wouldn't take so long to clean.

Anyway, I spent some of today working on Paul's bodykit, then fitted an MP3 player holder and wiring for mine and the missus' MP3 players so that we can play them through my Sony HU. The clean comes later in the week. Wink

If it takes 2 days J.., I think I 'll give you the tips LMAO

The Sony HU is a MEX-R1. It is a dvd player that has MP3 playback. It is also connected to a Sony XA-300 input selector. This combo gives me the ability to play dvds on the rear screens and headphones whilst listening to a different input on the front speakers. Great when you've got kids. It also allows me to have a cd autochanger connected and have to spare input sources which is what I've connected the flylead to for the MP3 player.

Yes Paul, unless the finest tar known to man is having to be removed before fitting a bodykit and then it becomes someone-else's business. I had fun watching Matt remove it LMAO

J.... your Gal is looking top-notch. Why does it not surprise me that you're gonna put it in a tent? Another excuse not to drive it! Dunno! LMAO
