Inspired by all you guys, I decided to take on my first mod. Despite my lack of technical knowledge I just dived straight in & thought to hell with it - if it goes wrong, it goes wrong.

Pretty pleased with the results though. And yes I know the vehicle needs washing :rolleyes:

:joy::joy::joy::p:p - I'm taking bets on how long it is before they get nicked. I'm guessing 3 days. ;):)

@Phil hope you're doing a write up with pictures on how you fitted them? Was it hard, any specialist tools needed due to it being an import? I think I will just drive the 200 miles to my closest Elgrand specialist when I have mine done 😁
:joy:

It was about a week in the planning. I set out to do a how to but I was so nervous about the size of the job that I forgot all about it. I found that little fat fingers were the best tool for the job. I enquired about having the job done but local garages just did the old shake of the head routine - too hard to work on an import & they didn't have the manual or any info on their PC. Nissan didn't want to know either ;):joy:

Did you put some copper slip in them caps Phil to make it easier for the kids to steal them and so they don't cut your valves off:p:p:p

What have you done today - Just had a full service - new rear discs, pads all round, oil filter, oil change, fluid top offs, air filter, couple of bulbs, rear caliper rebuild (repair kit + new pins)

Thanks to BMR for the parts and Gilhooly Commercial in Meldreth for the servicing.

Yeh only waiting for my private paperwork to come and then I can start looking for plates.
Then I think that will do.
I stuck with the Jap style plate on the rear which WRM had made up for me BUT I removed the front and fitted one which is 15inches long and slim albeit still legal font size and looks much better. Got it off ebay for £12 I think SNV32323.JPG SNV32452.JPG
