I replaced his door handles, and finally convinced him to ditch the shaggy seat covers...

Also did some Engine Work and for him recently, so he's happy with how it's running now...

Mate...

Use this list to help you go over your car...
Obviously not everything will apply, or need doing, but it's a good Guide anyway...

The Handbrake Gaitor is a Pest of a Job, being that the plastic mounting bracket, isn't that strong...
It may even break during removal, so try and score a spare bracket, and get the Gaitor fitted on that first...

Then it's just a straight swap...

when fitting it back, I tried using a staple gun, but it was a fail...
I removed all the staples using a small screw driver, then fitted them all back by hand...

I also suggest to get a decent quality 'Real Leather' Gaitor, instead of the fake Original Style...

I glued my handbrake gaiter on as the leather was a bit thick to get the staples through, use super glue and do it in stages like the front first and once dry start on the sides and work your way back. only thing i had to do was stop the leather wearing away at the front right side of the bracket and did this by whittling away some of the plastic at that edge. about 4mm did it.
It is an easy fix and worth doing with a matching gearstick gaiter
Nothing succeeds like a budgie with nae teeth

Up the Hibs!!

Now with added Vectra VXR power
