Head light washer install - part 1 of 2

So I bought a set of headlight washers from someone in the UK last year - finally installed them over the past few days - just before my car heads back to get front Konis fitted.

Just had to take off front bumper drill a couple of 18mm holes, shave the foam bumper backing (for the 5mph impact laws).

The hard part was passing the wiring through the fire wall to connect the switch.

The OEM single water bottle was swapped out with one that had a lower hose attached, this ran through under the air filter plastic and down on the inside of the air-box (which needed to be removed - there were already mounting points for the 2nd water bottle....see attached pictures....)

I used a multi-tool with a simple blade to shape the white foam - so that the hoses would sit nicely into grooves.
