    I have found a company very local to me that does this zinc plating so thinking of getting all my nuts and bolts zinc plated as below.

    Well worth it. Get as many bits as you can together and get them done in one hit. Take plenty of pictures so you know what bolt is for what.

    So changed the headlights today.
    Was not that bad a job if im being honest after knowing how to strip a 182 bumper and a megane mk2 bumper.

    Anyway here is the pictures of the standard lights.

    Nice one. They look much better over the silver surround ones the black sits well along side the yellow.

    Makes a hell of a difference. Looks so much more modern.

    Lights do make a difference mate. I'm loving everything you're doing with the car but I'm not sure the 200 wheels suit the 197. Maybe in the flesh I would change my mind. Cracking job so far!

    Looking for some decent H1 bulbs as I dont want to go down the HID route and I also have a headlight polishing kit (Autoglym) to do the headlights to bring them back up.

    Well they all arrived apart from 2 nuts and 2 bolts.
    £281 later on nuts and bolts and the car is almost ready to be booked in to get all the work done.

    As you can see I have printed off everything and highlighted it to show exactly what goes where.
