  1. What lighting options out there are best, obviously to go in my projectors... currently got 6000 HID bulbs which the light output is good but light distance isn’t great... just wondered what routes others have gone down? And am I likely to get them any better or not?

    Few bits needed what you guys got?..

    Yeah that’s what I want it for, to complete my double din install lol... I’ve got a guy on Facebook that claims he has the whole lot in one bundle so just waiting on photos from him. If his lot is no good I may take it off your hands, I’ll keep you posted

    Hi guys, just after some bits just to liven it up a bit really... ideally from the same person but let’s see who’s got what. aerial steering wheel head unit surround (black plastic with the pocket space at the bottom) front seat head rests thanks in advance guys!

    Headlight bulb options...

    Yeah I guess that makes sense, about the distance being governed by the projector itself. Might even be due to the fact my HIDS are cheap Ebay buys, don’t want too spend big bucks on top HID bulbs and ballasts for them to not make a difference though. I guess it’s all about trying out different options, taking risks and seeing what works.

    Yes mate... mines knackered and split half way around... don’t mean to be picky but what condition is it in buddy? what have you got now instead of the OEM?

    MB6 / MC2

    Hi guys, just wondering what MB6/MC2’s are out there for sale... mine is starting to have a few issues with it and engine isn’t sounding the best... so toying with the idea of getting the same model in hatch or estate with respectable mileage and not been messed about with too much, that way I can transfer a few of my current parts over and start again on a new base. love the idea of blue but beggars can’t be choosers haha!!!

    Going back to colour coded mirrors after having to replace my o/s glass...
  14. Hey lads, Have previously put a build thread on civiclife forum but thought I'd wack one up here too for different opinions etc. Currently I have re-sprayed the grill and re-badged boot... Ive cleaned up bay, powder coated rocker cover and fitted short ram induction kit (soon to be cold air induction kit)... Removed headlight washer jets... New head unit, fusion sub and fli door speakers... Next I plan to fill jet holes in front bumper and re-spray it, along with skirts and rear bumper as they have a few dings etc. Purchased the relevant stuff for this from halfords, had a question though... If i get paint colour using cars ext. paint code... Once lacquered will it have the desired effect or will it look out of place.... The silver has a metallic shine to it but not sure if my sprayed bumpers will come out the same as not done this before? Any tips welcome please!! Here's a couple pics anyway...

    Ok, so as posted in the wrong thread... ... I’ll post them up here as well. first wash since back on the road, good few months of grime to deal with. Ignoring the bodywork it comes up alright...

    Just realised all this chat is in the MB6/MC2 thread i started and not in my build thread!!

    MB6 / MC2

    nice Find @KiNK43 ... however, I think I’m over my ‘depressed’ phase and back on track with my mind set for this one time to trawl through the many how to’s on the forum to bring myself back up to scratch!!

    MB6 / MC2

    @dr_broon thanks mate, no rush... if I decide to take it off your hands what do you want for it?? And cheers for the link!! Saves me searching... I don’t tend to be very good at looking for particular “how to’s”... takes me an age to find anything!! @Dave ok yeah, I’ll make sure I disconnect first... or is there a fuse I could remove that does the same job I wonder. Anyways, first wash since I put her back on the road... looking much better and has given me a bit of love back so whilst I’m in this frame of mind hopefully I progress with some issues!

    MB6 / MC2

    @dr_broon ok mate, have you got any photos of it? Or just let me know what condition it’s in? also if anyone could lead me to a guide to remove and replace it would be great!

    @dr_broon what’s a spare spare, is that like a spare steering wheel for your spare car?? is it an original steering wheel? Can I swap the airbag into it or is that a big no go??

    MB6 / MC2

    @Dave you’re right the time of year deffo doesn’t help... all periods either side of work are dark as well! I have noticed the price increase too, even with some that are not all that clean either!! @KiNK43 ah ok, that’s definitely worth a shot I suppose... valve clearances as well maybe?

    MB6 / MC2

    170,000m but engine knocks under load, needs steering rack, clutch, ton of bodywork... head unit and clock black out whenever they fancy, needs front arch liners, steering wheel falling apart, interior generally tatty... I’m just feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the little bits that need doing with the little time I get, with a bathroom and a kitchen to fit at home, as well as work and a 1 year old I’m finding I’ve let the deck go a bit. Would love to bring it back to life but enthusiasm has gone a little because I don’t get the time
