    Delrin door bushes installed. Super simple, definitely less door rattles.
    New wiper blades installed
    Clear side repeater installed
    Spare wheel well now has three good coats of high zinc primer on it

    Part of the lighting issue sorted helps if the RH headlight wiring is plugged in properly
    Also removed the green underdash 'mood lighting' which was pretty bodgy - power taken by wedging wires into one of the main loom plugs near the fuse box, earth was wrapped around a screw. Wires are soldered to the switch, and wrapped in tape.

        Couldn't be bothered looking harder at the time. ;)

        I'll just book in an old next cut and colour next week and it'll pay for the difference ;)

                Not sure what difference the diff bushes make, I never noticed anything. The only set I got where given to me. I should buy the door bushes, I can see that helping. How much was it?

                  I figure since the diff has to come out to put the cusco centre in, it makes sense to change the 18 year old bushes while we're there. Same reason I bought engine mounts.

                  Door bushes are from AT performance - roughly 60 dollars.

                                I think you'll like the Cusco. I've heard good things about them.

                                I found the limits of the Torsen - lifting the inside rear on corners like T8 at SMP or the Fishhook at WP. When the wheel lifts, the Torsen turned into an open diff.

                                My car has an OSG now - no complaints.
