    Thanks for posting the update so others can learn if they have similar experiences!

    Great news Phil to hear you and the Hornets impending return to the the prowl

    As for missing an inanimate object, that is a malady that only those of us suffering the affliction that is NQR, succumb to.

    I'd not have it any other way.

    On another thought, any additions to the overall greeness of the Hornet? more LED's perhaps?


    How's the headlining holding out? Mines still stuck

    Headlining is just peachy Rich, it's actually even better than the leather cloth trick I did for the X308.

    No update on the lighting, but other than under the bonnet, I don't need any additional lighting.

    To be fair, other than attempting the same job on my sills that you've just completed, I don't know what else needs doing.

    Too good to be true? Mummy, I'm scared 🙄.

    Take your time Phil, don’t be too heavy handed with it, have a go and don’t be a big girls blouse. You may just surprise yourself.
