ordered a new rear H badge and prelude emblem



i did fit the mugens... honest Smile


but took them off to get them refurbed.... repairing anodised lip... not cheap Shocked

so as the wheels were off, thought best paint the calipers, went for black in the end, might change them again later tho

Before:




After:




so with the mugens off, needed something else to take their place...
lukily i had some other wheels lying around in the garage

just for ned

ok so here goes
the fogs themselves were installed by the bodyshop when it was in for all the work so that steps skipped Laughing

onto the wiring
1st of all i had the Wiring harness & relays



now to find the plug... underneath the dash somewhere... after a bit of searching... nothing. after a longer search with a torch i eventually found the plug taped up high up behind the airduct under the drivers footwell

from this pic you can just see the blue tape high up behind the ducting



and here a better pic



once uptaped hanging down, i connected that part of the harness to the plug



then next time to connect the rest up.
open up the fusebox and upplug the big 20 pin connector and plug it into the harness, then plug the harness back into the fusebox where you removed the connector



then position the harness neatly away with the rest of the wiring with a few cable ties.
thats that part done!

Now to the switch part
so my cars a pre-facelift so the free places for the switch to go are behind the handbrake just in front of the 'sex blocker'
so i open the cover and take a look for the connector plug





hmmm nothing there

so i removed the whole centre console (which i found later i would have to do anyway to run the new wires neatly)



still nothing Sad back to the tinterwebs... after some researching (thanks aardvark) i found that the pre-facelift connector is located behind the drivers side tweeter cover



but i had a JDM switch, which had a completly different connector, which i didnt have Sad but after some searching in the garage i found 1 Smile

so next thing was off down my mates garage to borrow his wire tester...
a short while later, we'd figured out the correct wires... some wires are not needed
then gave it a quick test to double check it worked Smile




so onto the next, running the extra wiring to where i wanted the switch to be.
so i ran a piece of wire back through behind the tweeter under the dash and down the centre console to just past the handbrake and cut to length
then i cut another 2 pieces to the same length, then to make sure i knew which end was which, i taped the ends different colours



then proceeded to wire both ends up




with that done, only thing left was to put everything back into place, wires neatly tucked away behind the tweeter cover and centre console back in place

the switch.. all working Smile




the fogs... all working Smile




JOB DONE!

got the mugens back from speedwells, did a great job on repairing the damaged lip.
didn't know what to expect with the change in colour to Volk Bronze but i think they turned out ok
they're a bit darker than before
