Today’s job was getting the front windows tinted. Very happy! Also booked in for alloy wheels for next week. Feels like I’m getting somewhere.

Not the most exciting job ever, but cleared all the leaves that had gathered and composted themselves blocking the drain holes just below the windscreen under the bonnet. Image

New head unit installed. Got a 20h drive in front of me this weekend, need something better than the stock FM radio.

Only Android Auto and BT at the moment, will pull wires for the mic, DAB aerial as well as reverse camera once temperatures get a bit warmer or I can find a heated garage to work in (-12C in Norway at the moment)

Was this easy to install. Wouldn’t mind those features plus my switch is broken so worth upgrading!

I ordered a cheap number from DVLA (my initials and birth date), and finally got around to swapping it today -

Was a really easy job, took about 10 minutes to do, tucked the light sensor between the windscreen and dash, really discreet. Image
