Problem fitting front indicator housing!

Hi Hoping someone can help? Trying to fit new fish eye front indicators - the housing will not push in all the way to enable me to fit both sides as the inside of the light hits the metalwork behind the dash?

Mystery door hole?

Hi

Before I drill holes for the trim on the cargo door thought I would check to see if anyone knows what this hole was for... its threaded, about 5mm and centered?

Thanks

Wiring loom and doom!

Ok - before I damage some nice new paintwork am I fighting a loosing battle here? Will this taped up loom end actually fit through the chassis tunnel - is it to thick? It gets stuck about 2 foot in? (looks clean as I have re-taped with less tape - its a virgin!) http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb...
