My quest to modernize my car continues...
Trying out "live blogging"... Check back later tonight as I report on the install and my driving impressions of Do-Luck's latest electronic wonder!
|A bit more and I scrape...|
|See how much shorter the Series 1 car's lip spoiler is!|
|You can see the plastic bag protecting the Okada Plasma wiring, as well as the not yet dry CD2 spray|
|Old (borrowed from Thomas again) and new Fuse Box Covers|
|Hmm. That new one looks weird.|
I wonder if I can get the old one chromed or something...
|Comparing the plastic clips that hold the brake lines in place!|
|The old ones had turned yellow (and 2 of 3 had cracked) due to the heat of the engine!|
|This would actually be the best solution...|
|Using tracing paper to create patterns for the 3M film|
|During application: before squeegeeing the liquid out|
|Check back as I experiment with this in the near future!|
|This is the basic kit - the liquid in a quart bottle, plus application tools.|
|Ok this roller is cute, but will it do the job?|
|I seems to go on very thick.....|
|But after you start spreading it out with the roller....|
|You end up with a very thin coat of spackled Elmer's glue-like stuff|
|Can't really tell from this distance...|
|But close up, you can see the orange peel effect quite clearly|

|They were waiting for me, so I had them pull my car into the workshop because...|
|As you can see it was pretty crowded in there that day. |
No way I'm taking responsibility if I accidentally run into something!
|Close-up of rear of bar (looking towards front) showing how the NISMO brace fits OVER the Do-Luck one, no problem|
|sorry for the blurred shot, but you can see how the bar runs along the chassis|
|How I wish I had my DSLR with me that night...|
|Hmm. This might be a decent place for a night shoot.|
