Finally got round to putting the rear strut brace in... The holes in the trim aren't as neat as I hoped for (not in the right place at first). Was going to try and find some type of gator to fit over, so definitely need to now.

Never had the brace and trim in tubs at the same time because of that pesky water leak. 

 

Now just need to wire the amp up, but rain has well and truly stopped play. 

 

Also wanged a new dizzy cap and rotor on today. Little things.

Looks good mate! Dizzy and rotor arms were replaced on mine regularly, as always cracked :( 

 

Good to see this when finally finished, but in reality, who's car is actually 'finished'! ;)

Cheers bud. What was it that cracked - the cap out the arm?

 

Yeah, very true... Will probably be always something else that ends up being on the list. Tbh, the speed that I'm getting stuff done at the minute is super slow, so it will never be finished :lol:

Good things come to those who wait! 

 

It was the dizzy cap that cracked all the time, at the bolt holes, let moisture in and wouldn't start! One time I did over tighten the bolts and cracked it! May as well have set fire to the money instead! Lol 

 

I've had my car for over 3.5 years now, booked in on the 22nd for DPF delete and new custom map. Fitted big intercooler 2 weeks ago and got a gearbox map....... modification on cars is never ending and no time set to do em! ;)

Spent a few hours this afternoon crawling around wiring the amp in and installing the old Bluetooth adapter in its proper home instead of all being in the glove box. 

No pictures coz there isn't much to see as its all hidden, and I was racing a thunderstorm :lol:

Still got to hook up to the battery as I'm waiting for a connector to arrive, but at least the cable has found its way into the engine bay.

Finished it off tonight.. Pleased that the amp still worked - haven't used it since it was in my eg about 15+ years ago.

Wiring could do with some tidying up still, but she lives!

So turns out that the cabin pollen filter for an MG zs is not the same as for an M... It's much bigger. Even bigger than the plastic tray that the oem one fits in. 

Every time I've changed the filter, the one I've got has had to go in instead of the tray, rather than in it, and since the honda one isn't available (at least on lings), I thought I'd give the MG one a bash. 

Got one from euro car parts instead (still didn't fit in the tray though) and hoovered out years and years of leaves and crap. Fans sound much happier now 8-)

Yeah still have the beemer mate! Been a good car so far ;) Will get some pics/thread started at some point!

 

Good job ref wiring! The thing will be booming! Good to see the old quality stuff still working after all these years. Buy an amp nowadays, and leave it years, guaranteed it won't work when tried later.
