Getting towards the end of the good weather and driving season with a certain autumn feel now in the air. I'm starting to compile the winter to-do list. Some are already started with parts ordered and just waiting for enough bad-weather that dash/off is unlikely to remove any driving opportunity:
1. Intercom II
The new intercom approach, financed by a little selling on eBay, is a combined shooting ear-muff + motorcycle bluetooth intercom hack. Intended to avoid shouting between driver and passenger. The radio will also have a simple Bluetooth transmitter added.
2. USB Power
Replacing the existing single 'lighter socket' with a couple of purpose built twin USB power outlets
The front socket is permanently used for camera and sat-nav anyway.
3. Aux Panel buttons upgrade
The savage switches will be coming out to be replaced by something more robust + include a separate local fuse for the button illumination so if/when the illumination goes it cannot take the button function with it.
4. Suspension height + brake disc paint.
That feeling when the seat bolts bottom out on roads with a high camber needs correcting with a turn on the rear adjustable coil-overs to stiffen things up a little. It's probably a combination of the springs settling and me getting heavier - or driving faster :) . I think I'll paint the slightly rusty/visible parts of the brake discs while the wheels are off.
5. Wideband Lambda
Some discussion on Facebook + identification of a new (to me) piece of Wideband lambda kit. It can null out some inaccuracies caused by installation, loom driven voltage variances, and looks interesting. Intending to swap out the narrowband (parts not yet purchased for this one)
6. Clocks surround + Shift light
I must get around to removing the stainless clocks surround and changing the mirror finish. I think just a brushed one will do the trick and stop it reflecting the sun right into my eyes. This post on Mitch's Blog reminded me. Installing a combination shift light and indicator tale-tale while the dash is apart.
None are must haves - just tinkering/upgrading.
That should keep me busy!
