Back in Black

After a lot of communication between SMPS2012 (site sponsor) I ordered the belt line kit. I literally couldn’t wait to fit it so pretty much went out and cracked straight on.

After lost of research and now some trial and error I am still no further forward with the lcd heater display and getting it to display correctly since changing the leds to blue

You can almost see that the fan speed is dark and the background is light. Yet standard is the other way around. 

The only thing to be changed was the diffuser paper. The original was orange coated, no matter what we did the orange coating showed the digits orange. Remove the orange coating and the display goes like it is in the picture but way way brighter. The paper currently has 5 layers of blue vinyl stuck to it which has subdued the brightness somewhat. The rest of the dash, steering wheel, radio, centre console and gauges are still to do, I only see an issue with the gauges from here, other than the lcd display obviously 🙄

With the MOT renewal date looming, I decided to take the plunge and After previous good service from Halfords Autocentre I decided to book the MINI in. As an added bonus they were open on a Sunday. It passed with only one advisory, the rear brake discs were corroded. Not really surprising considering I’ve only done 1500 miles since this time last year. This can only mean one thing. I must get out more 😂
