When I got my car back from the workshop, after the sauce jars were dropped on it, and the bonnet was resprayed, the LHS washer nozzle has since popped out as the paint is so thick, and the weather strips along the roof the little end caps are broken and loose in there at each end and half the clips that hold them down are broken or missing, all noticed (clips) or happened (nozzle) after the workmanship grace period to get it remedied under "warranty". So remember that all their dodgy workmanship may not be immediately obvious.

I should have washed it earlier but with the wet weather and new paint I didn't want to mess it up. Hand washing is a really good practice as you often find problems like scratches and small dents you never noticed with day to day use.

finally fitted my Dash Cams, Uniden iGo 50r 1080p front 720p rear, all cables fitted tidely behind panels and hood lining, has a reserve battery so when fully charged it has 15 mins of backup, only takes a 32gb card, has GPS logging, and I finally have a use for the cigarette socket in the centre console :lolhit:

Also had new tyres fitted on Friday by RACV, had the option to do wheel alignment, but its so far out that they're refunding me to get it done by a workshop.

Got the plugs to keep dust out of the USB power

Oh and made my CJ more legal and replaced the black 'reflector' lights with these red ones that look more stock. Didn't take the bumper off and OMG what a pain in the arm, but yes it can be done with the right tools!
