    Did you attack the inside of the car with rattle cans? Looks really nice! Lacquer too?

    On my list to do

    Thanks mate. No it's in 2 pack paint. So base coat, hardener and thinners mix and two coats using a compressor. The benefits of 2 pack is it's very hard wearing and has a great sheen. You can also flatten it back if you want as well.

    Next jobs:
    Finish the door cards
    Sort the wiring to the rear
    Fit carbon floor trays and create a false floor.
    Then on with the engine swap.

    I'm desperate to get back out in it so really pushing on mate. Haha don't ask! not much change from £2k from the cage and fitting.

    Glad I did it mate. A lot of prep and stripping but definitely worth it.

    Haha thanks

    Next challenge! Cutting out unnecessary crap out of the rear loom! Has anyone else done this? If so what did you remove?

    I did this initially, depends on what you wanting left back in.
    I initially stripped out the airbag's, seat belt tensioners, speakers and the key fob sensors. With then deciding to go on a standalone ecu, all I used was the loom for the rear lights, fuel pump. & sender. I got rid of all the interconnecting plug sockets and just soldered the connections.

    I'm planning on removing the speakers, rear boot locking, alarm and airbags mate. What do the key fob sensors look like? Anything else I need to consider?

    Key fob sensors are about 3 inches long, thin with a red bit inside.

    If I remove the key fob sensors will it effect the card detection in the card reader? or just the keyless entry?

    I've not tried it so this isn't from experience but I think it would just stop keyless entry working as well as keyless start. So the card would need to be in the slot each time. My battery died recently in the card and this was the result too.

    I wouldn't mind removing them as long as it doesn't effect the card slot from reading.
