Love what you've done with the car mate!

How much did the extractors and horn set you back? And is that the horn located under the drivers side front light? Is it just a standard horn?


not sure for just extractors but full system was $1650 + install,
as for horn yeah u can see it in the picture there under the drivers side light - $55 ebay,
being stupid i bought one from supercheap first before doing any research "said fits any 12v car" and i pulled front bumper off to find that u cant just put anyone in.. well price i have to pay for not looking up haha..

The horn is its very easy just need to unplug old and plug in new
+ was easy for me because both my front plastic wheel arches have seen better days both sides got holes in from rubbing 20inch wheels on full lock and all but one of the plastic wheel arch clips are left they are pretty much just flapping in the breeze lol.
Bought a pack of 50 off ebay still waiting to receive

As for the pacemakers I don't know I didn't install it

hmm yeah, my horn was working fine for ages because I have a habbit of double locking and then it toots, and one day it started sounding off then stopped working for a while and then worked again for a bit then just stopped completely
New one sounds better :) but cant remember what old one was like ha

I used the same kit I think, just bought it from somewhere else.
It worked out great, got the car down so that the very top edge of the tyres just tucks in under the guard.
Makes it look very flush

Will guards have to be rolled?
