    think you may be in luck as the weather forecast looks promising for another 2 weeks at least..

    His Facebook pages are full of the cars he’s done, lads who know him down Mansfield trust him with there baby’s, I’ll nick some pics and post some, some proper car (and odd lorry) porn in there... mk2 escort wide arch, cosworth powered, 450bhp, custom tubs for 12” wide rear wheels with 265 wide semi slicks, to say it shifts is an understatement! Think 10 second quarters...

    So the Clio went to norfolk for my mates fortieth and with a few high speed overtakes managed 33/34 mpg and nearly got squished by a 4x4 that didn’t know what lane he wanted and decided to stray into mine, I just got toe down and got out of there, the car does stick to the road really rather well even at 32 cold all round

    Going for poorboys on Thursday so gratuitous pics will be taken :smile:

    He’s literally just a mate who loves polishing them, doesn’t do general publics cars, only does en so he can put pics on his Facebook and say he’s polished a x,y and z, he spent two days on mine inc glass, tail pipe trims, clay, removing any swirls etc and made a rate nice job of it

    He’s just a bit weird I reckon, I hate polishing cars!

    Last five hes done! The Corsa is a 1 litre for a challenge round the Nürburgring, all 1 litre cars under a set amount of cash, no turbos I presume or you’d be in a charade gtti

    The 307cc must be a friends and the other three it’s just obvious why he’s polished them

    For anyone that’s ever used it, my mate polished stuff for fun and he showed me how to take it off... clean but of microfibre cloth not a lot of pressure, take most of it off, then more pressure to remove the rest with another clean bit, his take on it... press on too hard and it almost hardens the wax on the paint and makes it nigh on impossible to remove, taking it off in two stages lets it stick better to the paint, I’m not gonna argue... results speak for themselves :smile:

    Bored at work so I abused the two poster and fitted two new rack ends, both had play and weren’t gonna get any better so the time came, normally I’d only do one at a time and the adjusted tracking to straight, but figured with both sides being out of its not straight now I will get it tracked on my mates hunter setup :smile:

    Satin black badges to see if I like em... not sure yet... I think I might do them again and paint the background (the plastic that’s behind the chrome normally) red as a brave experiment... but I can see body coloured background being favourite to add some contrast! 550BEDF4-1B26-459F-80F2-C45A0BD0C679.jpeg AC9C1D01-AE7B-45A7-8957-69E61BCE7EBE.jpeg
