I had a crack at re-trimming the door card inserts (I have about 3 sets)
It worked out good enough but it was something I have never attempted and in retrospect I think I could do it better... But hey its an improvement..

After a couple of months it started to look a bit dull so I will probably give it another go soon.

Things will be on hold for a while as I have just bought my missus an Excel (her falcon uses too much fuel) which I need to paint, fit a fully sick sound system, new tyres and and register.
So I think Tax time we will see some s**t go down with the EF such as fitting the new engine and engine bay paint!

I'm new to some of this, so it may be a stupid question, but do you have to get new bolts when replacing the rocker cover, or can you use the same ones. Because I have heard that when you are replacing one tlof the engineering parts you have to get new bolts as they are designed to expand.
