Hi guys

Had a couple of bad tanks since my last check in, i switched to 94 octane ethanol blend to try it out instead of the usual 91 unleaded and the mileage dropped quite a bit, i also had a small accident at the end of the last tank where a truck pulled out in front of me and i had to go over a gutter to avoid him, which popped one of my front tires and put my wheel alignment out of whack

i got more progress on my mirror upgrade though, the passenger side i cut the mirror off completely and smoothed it out, the drivers side i started in my previous post:

still need a bit more bogging and sanding before the drivers side is ready for paint but the passenger side is done:

I also mounted a killswitch in the gearknob yesterday, its not hooked up yet though, i cut the knob up a bit and siliconed a switch in before running the wires under the boot end through the center console:

Thats about all for now, apart from a good wash again:

Thanks for looking
