plan for today is:

bleed brakes - done nice new fluid throughout
Change wheels for sei jobbies - done pics to follow
Assemble airbox - done (need a panel filter though, so used to cone filters)
Take for its first drive around the block see if anything else is obviously needed. - Not done, rain stopped play and wipers are shockingly bad
wash inside ad out - not done, rain stopped play
extensive t-cut of spoiler and rub strips. - not done, rain stopped play

Additional jobs:
Swapped rear bumper for better one and replaced rub stips with black ones

Did you check the rear light seals and the vent seals while the rear bumper was off just incase they are helping to fill the swimming pool?

On the list, the rear bumper sliders didn't come off well so the bumper will be coming off again anyway, goal was get mot ready, see what he says.

He's the one who decides how far i go with it.

Car is tarped over when not in use :glare
