Swapped out an old TPMS button for a Comfort/Sport Damper
Button to switch the valve on my exhaust. Nice and discreet.

Trimmed down my wind deflectors to allow my mirrors to fully fold so I don’t burn the motors out ImageImageImageImage

I’ve been soundproofing the cab floor over the last few days. I will be starting the rear and the doors after that. ImageImageImage

Fare play, but thats a bit drasticImage, i had these on my 18 plate, no issues, mirror just used to gently come to a stop as it touched the deflector, no worries of burning the motors out etc.

You say no worries but there is a worry when the mirror fold motor is tripping out on its current limit rather than hitting the end stop. You may not have seen a degradation in the motor life but that's not to say it will never happen.

I agree with you there Doc.
@r1lea that’s a really nice job you’ve done there mate.
I’ve finished soundproofing the cab today. Took me a while around working night shifts, but it’s now done.
