    No progress to report sadly but we got a good day here on Friday and I gave the car a good go over inside and out.

    Bought some Chemical Guys XXX Hard core wax and Mad Cow Ultra Violet quick Detailer from Eddie here off the forums as I wanted a few coats of wax on before the winter weather and grit men get out!

    So just posting a few good pics I got off it. Some glow of her now! Please delete if these are considered pornographic context as they are pretty sexy!

    They say its hard to get a white car to shine... Wheres the hard games at! no filtering at all on the pics. Just straight from the phone

    That’s got some ‘pop’ for a white car - in less than perfect light levels ! Great work.

    All that talk of winter and gritters makes me cringe when looking at a paint finish like yours :-(

    Here's the link mate:
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3mm-4mm-...e=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

    You need the 5mm ID / 10mm OD version. It comes in a metre toll and you just cut what you need.

    So cheap and effective, takes you 2 mins to do.

    Small update but it's made me happy!

    Got a new head unit the other day and FINALLY got the correct adapter for the aerial after halfords stroked me on the wrong one twice before!

    I was using my phone and the radio app to play radio through Bluetooth fs! Lol.

    And more importantly the last stereo shine a blue light and this one suits the interior a bit more. The other one was also missing the plastic surround from the front and it upset me on a daily basis. Stupid things that really don't matter piss me off so much

    Also installed the wee microphone and it sits absolutely perfect behind the steering wheel, the wee clip that it sits on just slides on like it was made for it! Took the time to run the wire out of sight. Run it down through the plastic under the dash and out round the back of the centre console into the head unit.

    Inexpensive but well pleased with it. Takes the daily ballache of it away!

    Surprising how much of a difference a different head unit makes to the centre console, looking spot on!

    The pictures come out strange. It looks much more red than it is. Looks quite similar to the rest of the interior. Especially if I turn the brightness of it down

    Soooo after a year of owning the car I finally got round to changing the plates to get rid of them rotten branded Charles Hurst Dundonald ones (we all know they didn't care about me so why the f*** would I advertise for free for them!

    Subtle change but big impact I think. Love them d45975f36a170191bc92e87224efb11d.jpg c6597382004bdc1eb0513707c993b276.jpg a5f1e19c3ba2d066b4a2eff19aa6b8ca.jpg 8cd89d02c3171c5bc9e44f89924817ce.jpg 2862a717ddad160019c674c447ae2c8d.jpg 482789a3a540c06054930de894190829.jpg faf515d1d5b8f941c5b69337a8fcde33.jpg 98be519fef45da019c87f1aae1cd3897.jpg

    So another tiny thing that's annoyed me since I got the car has now been resolved.

    Previous owner must have wore a ring!

    Literally took about 3 minutes and Autoglym Super Resin and a microfibre did the job a619e4c82e6948aceec698a35c745633.jpg da55e359ec7167d4bb312d3f4a146d17.jpg 9ee674f1a22cac72f36dfa69d6fd89bb.jpg 75ed48d87fb4a2b1e8ffe3e5121a191f.jpg

    Another small update but one that's been doing my head in.....

    Finally got the B Pillars re-wrapped. Opted for carbon fibre and my uncle fitted them as he does van decals etc. Looks much better now!

    Also thought while he was at it he might as well do my interior trim ordered some stickers for over it too

    Some before and afters of course fe5ef5bd8b0ad310186fc031c90ad387.jpg 188a5c5eb98f56215331524600113c77.jpg d87e2854b8457d598cfedb7c3814b9f7.jpg c6f9b57f8b2b3bd4a12c03c0790de82a.jpg 2bf7efda01b07d4a4e986a2c8be590bd.jpg b701a0d2028509118d53b038e918e8aa.jpg
