    Harvey's Sonic V70R Resting

    Though I would start a thread for the "R" there are a number of jobs that need looking at.

    1 Remove the detachable towbar & sockets.(then put it on the bay)
    2 Fix the tail gate lock.(order up new loom just not worth messing around with it)
    3 Reshape and paint the intercooler fins (free only time)
    4 Fix the light scratches in paintwork (easy job looks like the clear coat only)
    5 Fit sticker to tail gate glass.(on order)
    6 Change indicators bulbs to Osram Diadem Chrome indicator bulbs (on order)
    7 Change wheels over to my winters (free)
    8 Fit Imiv iPod box & reverse camera kit.(free)
    9 Fit canbus box of tricks.(free)
    10 Fit TME exhaust from the S60.(free)
    11 Fit Volvo tax disc holder.(on order)
    12 Get nice new reg for it(not free )

    That's most of the things I will get done over the next couple of months.
