Fitted an Invisihitch towbar on the weekend and finished fitting the Redarc tow pro brake controller yesterday.

Gonna be towing a caravan to Kingscliff for the Aussie Open waveski comp. Three hundred and something horsepowers should be enough to move a caravan.

Fitted these smoked LED indicators, not 100% happy with them, pretty sure I accidentally bought the post LCI versions, but they're better than cloudy stock ones, might change them again later

put in a new FIAMM battery and coded with Tool32. Not so hard. I think the Varta one I got in it was a cheap old one (black dynamic E9).

Tried to fit a homemade clutch pedal stop because the length of the clutch pedal travel is annoying.

It didn't work because the switch that tells the car that the pedal is in before you can start it is all the way down at thw bottom of the pedal travel, so the car wouldn't start

Now a weekend job to work out how to adjust the switch as well, there's a fair bit of traffic about it on the forums so should be OK

Still have to fit my new FMIC and plugs and coils, hopefully this weekend for plugs and coils, might wait for the outlets before I fit the FMIC, I guess we'll see how patient I can be

Took my car to get washed so it is looking good for the meet tonight and noticed this shit when I got home. Went back and lost it at those retards and told them to do it again. They said "ohh, it's only polish. Your car is black it's hard to clean bla bla bla" and I also noticed they scratched the whole car with the cloth they used. I told one of the guys to give me the cloth so I can see what they are using and it was one of them towels you have in the kitchen that you dry your hands with. Fucking cock suckers.

It took me over half an hour to go over the whole car wiping it off.

First and last time I go there. This is why I usually wash my car by myself and never let anyone touch it. Now I have to get it detailed again
