In Germany there must not be a red light in front of a car. So there are some problems with the scannerlight. It must not be able to be switched on, when the car is driving and it must not reflect light in red color. So we adjusted a black laquered lense in front of the scannerbar. Now it looks black, when the scannerlight is off.

Today we layed the new carpet into the car. It fits perfectly, though its not an original product. Additionally, we pre-installed the dashboard, to see if it fits. But it will still need some work to fit perfect.

Over the past days, we removed the new carpet to lay all necessary cables into the car. We also installed outside speakers for the voice output of the alarm system. Finally, we layed the new carpet again into the car and installed the backseats.

Today, we mounted the new exhaust system. The exhaust pipes look much more authentic now than the old stainless steel pipes, which were much too eye-catching. Additionally we closed the holes in the new rearbumper with component glue and installed sporty reflectors to it. In Germany, cars with black taillights need additional reflectors.

Today, I brought my car to the paint shop. To show, that the cars often look great on pictures, but having a lot of bugs in reality, I'm presenting some detailled pictures now. All bugs will of course be removed before the car will be repainted. After the paint-job the car will be like new.
