    thanks for the warm welcome :Smile: well i said today i would give it a good polish before i take pictures of it (to my self) naturally its been raining all day because of it....

    but i will get pictures up of it with a bit more of a detail description of her.... the only thing i don't like about it is it does not have alloys :/ that and the pulley on the right side has a bolt thats loose and i have tried tightening it up but it gets so far and won't go any further :Frown:

    Quite a few people create to do lists on their cars when they put it in their garages - I have one on my Civic garage entry as do quite a few others as well. Helps others see how you are progressing and helps us help you by knowing your exact model, trim, engine etc etc.

    Well on putting a heady it in which is a dad player also.... I had to take the hole centre console out and doing that,the plastic part that goes around the gear stick that you pull up to detach away from everything snapped in two.... :/ so I'm fixing that and spraying it black instead of having it the wood effect.... Also the tension bolt that goes down onto the aircon belt keeps vibrating out , I'm not sure what to do with that one :/

    Ah well at least you manage to fix it up again.

    Do you have any pictures of the tension bolt that keeps vibrating loose ?

    It's the one that's rather dark if you can see?

    That's odd, is shouldn't come loose !

    Perhaps you should try getting some thread lock on it.

    I have been able to tighten it this time having a go but it seems like there is a horrible grating noise coming from that area still :Frown: I figured it was just that bolt I guess not
