    Just been reading this back, I never changed the to do list around!!

    I've already fitted LED's to the heater, mfd & dials. Also (as per pics) fitted LED switches and just have the window ones left to do. Went for White in the heater, mfd & dials and then all blue switches.

    Also fitted my new interior light, re-wired my stereo USB cable however I plan to change this around and maybe replace the unit with an Alpine one when I go to install my sub.

    Watching a few bits on eBay for this at the moment, just sold my Macbook so got a little bit of cash spare.

    Need to get two tyres fitted to the Aygo this Friday when I'm off work too, Aygo is taking most of my money at the moment

    Have ordered a new Fuel Pump Relay & Replacement Fuel Rail. Fuel rail comes with 3 known working Injectors which I plan to send off for cleaning and then will fit. Am running out of ideas if this doesn't work!

    Also decided that the alloys are going and going to go for some 15" steels with retro caps for a slightly nicer look in my eyes!

    Stripped fuel system down today, had it running with easy start again but as soon as you stop spraying, it cuts out so now confident it's fuel related.

    Have ordered a new fuel rail, injectors and pressure regulator, so will get them fitted when they arrive, but am also going to get the fuel pump out and give that a clean up - I may replace it tbh as the sender part doesn't work but will see what condition it's in when I get it out. I even made up a wooden tap thing so I don't have to use a screwdriver with the risk of sparks haha!!

    Took a few pictures, mostly so I could remember where stuff went






    Have also borrowed a dremel from a friend of mine so I can clean up the throttle body etc, may as well whilst it's off!


    Edit; I also have a new coolant bottle, cam cover gasket and paint for the battery tray, hoping it'll all look quite smart when I'm finished with it!

    Wonder what wind deflectors are like on a C. Must avoid spending money on stuff that doesn't stop it breaking down

    Good luck with the fix.

    Deflectors look awesome on any car, and are practical too
