Yeah, I know.

Can't wait for tonight to give them a go. I forgot to do a before shot to show the comparison  :embarassed:

Got the loom off the Corrado forum, not the cheapest of things but I think it'll be worth it in the long run  :wink:

I also popped a new battery on as well so the charger and extension lead can be put away again for the time being  :laugh:

Still got to get the drivers electric window sorted Robz,

Get me arse into gear and get the replacement drivers seat cleaned and put in.

Get me wheels refurbed in the cream colour to match the badges I've done and that's about it for this year as there will be lots of things crop up during the summer no doubt  :wink:

I have some headlight protectors ordered from a guy on the Corrado forum cos the headlights are so expensive to replace that I'd rather spent £30 on them than £100 on a new headlight.

Oh, and paint up the badgeless grill and put that on when the mood suits me  :smug:


I've just been into Buxton to drop some people off and for anyone who has experience of the crap Corrado headlight power........get an uprated headlight loom  :laugh: :laugh: it's like fecking daylight now!!!

Next time I'm out at night I'll take some pics to show.......the difference is incredible, 1000% better  :laugh:

The loom cost me £50 posted Mate :shocked: :shocked:

But it came with instructions and I got it fitted in around 15mins  :laugh: and by the way it was tonight, worth every penny  :wink:

The car is running so much better now the lambda sensor has been done as well, just seems more responsive :smiley:

Will do Mate,

Not sure if he's doing them from the forum any more but he does sell them from time to time on ebay  :wink:. Apparently, you can't tell they are on when fitted but cannot use them if you have a headlight brow on.

He does them in clear, tinted and Yellow.
