I had to change a bulb today as a sidelight looked like it had blown - turns out there is just a puddle of water in the headlight bucket! Might have to dry that out and sort the earth point instead.

Either way, I fitted new sidelights and dipped beam xenon thingies, at £7 for a main bulb I thought it was a bit steep, but I was keen to see if I could improve the notoriously shite headlights - my god is it bright! Apparently they are 90% brighter than standard bulbs and even in the daylight I can tell they are ruddy bright! Quite excited to drive home from work later and see how they work :)

Rather than having a 'first drive of the year' this was more of a 'last drive' of 2018... I got my better half a camera for Christmas and she obviously knows what she's doing :lol: I took a couple!

Always loved the way Debby sits and she looks much better here than in the flesh, will try do a similar shoot when I eventually get the GL back...

Hey Danny,
Your car looks awesome, as always!
Those are brilliant photos, I especially like this one:

The money spent on that camera was well worth it. Or is it the subject matter that makes a good photo? :D
It sounds ridiculous, but I think the Capri looks great with it's lights on!

Andrew.

Haha thanks for the kind words guys!

I do love the look with the lights on, just gives it 'something' haha!

I love trying to get some interesting scenery in there as well, keep the car out of centre shot just like this one

I'm glad the camera has done well, Canon 750D it was :)
