When I declared to my insurance company that I fitted 16" alloys in the Summer to my C1 they noted it but didn't charge me any extra.

100% agree with the advice to tell your insurer about ANY changes, and let them decide whether it affects their perception of risk and hence your premium. The risks of driving while (unintentionally) uninsured is just too high.

Quick update, decided I wanted DAB (And to be able to adjust the display colour of the radio!) and got a pretty nice deal on the Headunit (Pioneer MVH-X580DAB), installation was nice and simple. Definitely happy with the upgrade. I will probably throw the old one up on eBay.

Half day at work means more time to do bits on the bug!

Started off with a partial rear debadge, didn't want to go for a full debadge as I feel it's a bit plain but decided to clean up the look with a partial one, I am loving the new look.

Image

Next up attempting a repair on the rear defroster, only one has been working since I got the car and it's painful, no idea of it will work but it's all I can really do

Image

Finally the most temporary job so far, so, I took off the high level brake light to install some LEDs (Didn't in the end, the white LEDs are too blue and look too pink in the red housing, ordered some red LEDs). BAD IDEA, seal completely disintegrated. So my fix was to stick some really thick draft exclusion foam strips in place, cut them down and colour them in with marker, it doesn't look as awful as I was expecting but I assume it won't actually seal so I am trying to figure out a more permanent solution for now.

Next morning update after a horrible rainy night:

Light seal worked perfectly, bone dry inside!

Rear defroster on the other hand was a complete and utter disaster, just made things much worse! My fault for using electrical tape! why did I do that.

Anyway, gonna reattempt when it's warmer again and I can take the rear window off for a day

The debadging looks great, good idea to go for partial. Well done.

Another couple upgrades today!

First one, installing some wind deflectors

Image

Second one, installed a variable intermittent wiper stalk from an auris

Image

Got a few more upgrades coming soon, including some alloys, just gotta get the spacers for them.

Nice job, the Auris wiper stalk is a great improvement.

Done quite a bit in the last few days!

Firstly I fully de-lensed the rear lights with a mix of LEDs for most of the bulbs and silvered indicator bulbs
Image

Then I did a fairly major upgrade, installing speakers in the doors, these pictures aren't really in any particular order.

Pic1: Hole for passenger side cut:
Image

Pic2: Passenger side speaker installed:
Image

Pic3: Hole for driver side marked out:
Image

Pic4: Both completed doorcards:
Image

Pic5/6: Both doorcards installed:
Image
Image

Pic7: My VERY makeshift waterproofing (Not overly confident in the longevity but it's all I can do for now):
Image

Overall very happy with the upgrade, makes a massive difference to audio quality and the windows still go down which is a huge plus!

Got a few more things coming soon, including alloys and a full rear-end lighting re-jig planned.

Looking good, did my front door speakers few years ago and as you say improved the sound. Your makeshift waterproofing looks ok, I used an old circular plastic food tray, mash potato iirc, it was just right size to fit the hole, siliconed it in and it seems work, I just tried it as it looked right and then went shopping for another, I did look odd with my tape measure in the Tesco food aisle!

good solution, didnt think of that! I think the plastic I used for the actual covering is fine I think the tape won't be good enough though and i'll have to silicone it in at some point.
