Removed the mirror shroud to remove the mirror:



Swapped with the mirror with the door function:



Boot strip out:



Found this plug, i presume for tow bar wiring:



Started the TV retrofit, cable:



Plugged in:



Removed the sound deadening to to fit the unit:



Unit in place:



And one more:



Went to plug in antennas but I dont have the correct screen, will look at antenna options...

I looked at doing the rear arms but more involved than I thought, and as I plan to refurb the shocks will do it as part od that, larger project. Can sort some surface rust and paint subframe and whatnot as part of that job...

Tried doing the intake clean, but it didn't seem to want to go through in any of the places I put the hose, never mind

got to admit I have no idea on things like this
But what I can say is that its a total waste of time having it fitted as you need to have the engine running why you watch it and being a v8 works out more expensive than a BBC licence due to the fuel usage :eek:

The antenna on the rear screen is the FM aerial

On my old XFR you didn't need to have the engine running for the TV to work but you did need the ignition turned on.
That said for me it was a fairly useless gimmick and I think I used it two maybe three times in total.

Interesting that you found a connector for towing electrics Jordan. The XFR can't have a tow bar fitted as it's not type approved for them, much to my disappointment.

Perhaps it isnt wiring for it, was just an assumption...

Although I'm sure i saw someone towing with an XFR on Facebook the other day, saying that was probably a diesel with a bumper and bonnet vents

I’d doubt there be a different loom for an R compared to another model.

The lack of towing certification is probably more of a style thing rather than it can’t. 🤣🤣

Might be a country thing. Mine works with the ignition off. Just need to press the power button for the ICE.

Went to aid my friend with some jobs on a newly acquired 645, whilst I was there I finally got around to finishing the flatting of the bumper corners that weren't done at bodyshop as they were not on the car...

This is an example of the peel:



Got it pretty flat:





Then started correcting it:











Did it too well, now I will have to go over the work that was done before :lol:

Wings could also do with a bit of flatting and the door i haven't done yet, would basically mean the whole car has been wet flat with exception to roof. That being said there's still a bit of peel present, especially on edges as I'm not bold enough to go for those...

I have to say thr Carpro Clearcut makes exceptionally light work of sanding marks, I will need to get some more paper if I am to do more than one panel. The diffuser needs some attention but very wary of doing it because of the curves and corners, dont want to strike through...

Cheers! Was hoping to get a clean in the morning, but looking at work being carried out at home I'm going to be busy :mad:

Hat off to you Jordan, I wouldn't have the balls to take wet and dry to my paintwork/lacquer.

It does look stunning though.

Its not as scary as you think to he honest, done it a few times now, massively laborious but worth the effort
