I’m working on the sticky dash at the moment. I’m slowly cleaning the stuff up, but is there a way to restore the original finish?

My method is using isopropanol to remove all the sticky mess, wipe with panel wipes and a couple of coats of satin black rattle can to give it that OE soft touch look.

Worse case, just buy some hose from a local auto factors and thread it over the ac pipe

Well, I got an envelope in the mail today, supposedly containing a bracket. But it was empty! Maybe customs took it, maybe someone stole it, or perhaps it made its way out on its own. ooo

Anyways, I appreciate the effort, and if you ever find one again, I’d be delighted to pay for both of them, including shipping. smile

Hi Mags,
the same thing has happened to me, twice. When i queried the problem of missing metal items in an envelope i found out and still find it quite unbelievable that the gpo can get away with removing the offending metal item, in their eyes, because it can damage the machinery that they use to sort the letters, and then resealing an empty envelope and sending it on it`s way without any explanation. l lost a turbo badge and a key on separate occasions, commiserations for your loss but if you have another sent by post probably a good idea to have it packed in a jiffy bag or a box.

I’ve been welding in patches to fix rust on my sons K10 micra for the last 4 months, but finally back on the coupe…

I’m about to get on with the final assembly in the engine bay. Basically the pipe work for the induction system. I think I’m able to figure out how it goes together, bar the wiring looms.

Is there a guide to how to route the engine bay wiring? What goes over or under what, and where does it clip in?

I’m not looking for a wiring diagram, just an overview of the placement of the loom, relative to the other components.
