Does it actually work? Sounds like a gimmick, can paint really be semi transparent.

ebay and Amazon sell it and there's plenty of choice so it must be a real thing...My options are get a tint professionally done or try the spray.

NS paint job is superb.....Although i have the correct paint and code I'm going to get them to do the bonnet, quoted £300. All that's left then is some making good.

You will never get that tint spray on evenly and will look patchy. Same with the pre cut tint.

Get it done professionally, it's not a mega expensive job.

I understand and for that reason I'll test it first, my hope is there is some truth about the product that It'll do as promised. Failing that i will get it done professionally. I just begrudge paying for something i could do myself.

Wiring help team wim.....I've bought another one of these...

 

AIRBAG EMULATOR

Attached File  zzxs-l1600.jpg   67.41KB   0 downloads

 

I've bought some in the past but never had any luck connecting them to the airbag connection. Thinking the issue was because i've been using generic units I've decided to buy one specific to the MR2. Problem i have is the connection is the same but in the image for the side airbag there's a yellow connector

What is it? or how can i modify the two pins coming out of the resistor so i can plug it into the airbag wiring?

I don't have a clue, you tried the MR2 forums?

No....But can you see my issue?... The connecting wire is nothing more than a pin so how the hell do you connect a spade fitting on that!

Next mission is the door shuts. The worrying part is the centre console used 500ml so i've bought 1ltr at a cost of £90 :o
