    Have had a spare few hours this week after work so I have started tackling a few jobs on the Clio :smile:

    started off yesterday by cleaning the car inside and out including polishing and sealant

    also went to collect my wheels from City Wheel Refurbishment.

    I placed the wheels in the living room (not to her amusement) so that I could ceramic seal them with G-technic C5



    Today I set to work on getting the wheels onto the car.

    couldn't help but flush the arches out and dress them with some trim dressing whilst I was there !

    Nice one, after doing all that work on your arches, that sounds like a great decision.

    Managed to get a few little jobs done today that have been annoying me

    Started by helping fix my mates broken sill . What a pain !

    Then I removed my door bullets and painted them black . So much better

    I finally fitted my rear quater door seals as mine were very perished

    Also cleaned my belts as it seemed the previous owner didn't know what personal hygiene is

    Over the past few days I have been spraying some spare dash trims and only today realised that the centre one that houses all the climate control and stereo was the wrong one ! Annoyed !!!

    Managed to get the other ones that I had sprayed fitted and added a nice little gold sticker to them 2666169af27f02640aacbdf1a3e5eabb.jpg 4858425247534dbd2b07dbec72bd323a.jpg c8de619f3df24e5a9b562a87a7fc0a7f.jpg d338ad956fb6c23db4a2dc2d47f782c5.jpg b8dfce95968d959ee12461dad6c2423e.jpg

    Loving the dash trim sticker:grinning:

    How do you find the Rainsports in all this hot weather? Do they turn to jelly quickly?

    I’ve got a set so just curious
