- Road Wheels Re-spray
I'm going to get my 'road' wheels repainted in the same 'Skoda black' :-) as per the track wheels (in the picture above) I'm not sure if I want to get the orange stripe painted in as this was quite pricey, but looks cool - I'll probably be left with 'no option' in my mind, but to bite the bullet and get the orange rims painted too!
- Polishing the Exhausts (again!)
Staying true to my 'polisher' status, the manifold, downpipes and cat bypass pipe(s) will be removed and polished up, using my buffing wheels and compounds.
- Rear Wheel Arch Repair
One of the rear carbon wheel arches has a very small crack in it where Lee (my business partner) clipped it with his X5, so I'll get that repaired, and also where I made the carbon battery housing, a bit of carbon epoxy got stuck to the other rear wing, so I'll get that rubbed out too.
- Replace ANOTHER headlight that's cracked
- Just before the car went off to Caterham, I noticed another headlight glass has cracked - and strangely enough it's pretty much the same area as the last one that broke and the same side... Fortunately I bought a two of the headlight lenses when I replaced my last broken headlight, so I'll be fixing that.

- Fit my lovely new carbon interior panels!With a view to reducing weight, and getting a 'cooler' look, I badgered Caterham enough to let them sell me the interior panel set that comes in the 620R and Seven 20 edition! I think I'm the first to have this set of panels and I'm really looking forward to getting these fitted... I'll create a full detailed fitting guide and so on... There are five panels in total, and this will be a good project to get stuck into over the next few weekends.

- Remove the hoodsticks and replace boot coverCarrying on the weight saving theme, I'm going to remove the hood sticks (as since change to aero screen - there's no going back!) and I'll also be fitting a new boot cover designed for cars without hood sticks.
