Not much to report
Not much been going on in the workshop for 2 reasons. Firstly it is bloody cold outside and secondly, I spent a lot of time on 1 project and it was a failure due to bad info. I had to walk away and take a break

453 Auto Wiper Coding.
451 Centre Console Removal.

Problems signing up or logging in?
Social media. Facebook for non technical smart nonsense. Instagram for non smart personal shit.
Buy me beer, chocolate and car parts.

Most of the hard work going on currently isn't immediately obvious.
Firstly, I have AI upscaled another 200 photos.
Secondly, OTV (site coding legend) has been working on a full site update which will be more secure, work better, look better and will work much better on all devices.
Thirdly, we are working on an eBay style selling site specially for smarts and parts.

Hopefully it will give people a 1 stop shop to pick up parts.

The final piece of the puzzle has been found. 453 LED headlights 100% coded properly.

Don't worry, I am not dead
I'm still here. I have just had a large project for work and that was more favourable than being out in a cold workshop. I have been doing a few new pages of info and splitting pages out from other info to make things easier to find.

However, mainly I have been running hundreds of photos through AI to make them larger and clearer. I'm not going to link to each one in the news as there would be a new update every day.

I normally add a new page every now and then and post the news when I have a bunch.
To be honest, I was so busy that I forgot. I didn't think I had enough to bother.

Massive Update To Encourage New Subscribers
I don't like to beg but please consider subscribing to the site, it's only £15 for the entire year. Every year I see a slight decrease in subscribers and I put it down to FaceBook forums.

Some people on there read my site, get the information and then answer questions by rattling off what they can remember instead of linking back to the accurate information on the site they got it from.

Also, posting screen shots is a big fact fucking no no. If you post a screenshot of a subscription page, I will delete your account with no questions. You had to pay to see that info and it's not your call to hand out the information for free.

You wouldn't believe how much time and money I spend creating information for this site. It's impossible to not save your subscription fee the 1st time you use the site instead of paying someone to fix it for you.

OK, Moan end. On to the good stuff.

I have added a shit-load of stuff and spent a lot of time editing older pages of information with much more in-depth stuff. Also, as and when I come across an old page with 600pixel photos, I have been running them through an AI photo enhancer which is doing an amazing job at cleaning, sharpening and increasing the resolution. I'm doing everything I can to attract subscribers by covering as many topics and bases as I can.
