Small update...

Taken the aftermarket shift gaiter frame I've used for a long while and wrapped it in leather. Have used the same leather to make a new gaiter and will use some spring wire on the inside of the frame to hold and spread the gaiter in place. Seats will come out over the coming weekend for recovering and will probably take a week. Gives me some time to tidy up under the dash and get the carpet steamed in place without the seats being in the way.

Nice job, enjoying the updates - haven't had the time or inclination to crack on with mine recently

I can relate. Lately I'm finding it difficult putting so much time into the minor stuff, which to be honest, you stand back from at the end of another week and can barely see what you've achieved. I try my best to mix it up as much as possible when I can and when only the minor jobs are left I try to remember how annoying constantly seeing a half arsed job was...

I noticed the power steering pump is leaking fluid from the front so it's time to replace it and fit a new engine belt as well. Since I'll be ordering parts from the UK I might just bite the bullet and replace the water pump and timing belt as well while I'm at it.

I asked a local parts supplier today for a price on some Bosch ignition leads for a c20xe... $441 a set. Manufactured where? China.
