Very very very nice wish my tungy was that clean.

What car washing liquid do you use? An what polish do you use?

Looks like your strut to hub bolts are facing the wrong way.


Thanks guys.

Yep,  those bolts are now back in the right way.. well spotted tho!  :wink:

These are the main ones I use when it gets a going over.. in this order..  

Meguiars gold wash
Meguiars clay bar   (used on glass and wheels as well)
P21s polish
Mothers wax

Yes,  thats prob the same place...  they were off ebay..  I think they are still selling them on there.  I was going for bigger disks and 4 pots but really want to still be able to fit the 13's from time to time..  would be a shame to not keep those :)  so these worked fine.... and it still stops! lol.

Cheers Baz...   u gotta be crazy to own one of these cars..  :lol:   but with the pads..  I wont be using it on the track... and just went for the black EBC kevlar pads and stops very well.  I may change around the brakes later tho... I have heard ferodo brake pads ds2500 are the best option for track.

I have Ferodo DS2500's & they are excellent pads, bloody expensive though.
I found the standard EBC's better than the Green stuff....

Nice one  8)  do they work well from cold?  I was on the brink of getting some when I did the brakes..  quite a few of the track day guys use these and swear by them.  I am really tempted to go for some Wilwoods that fit under the standard wheels...but too many other things being done at the mo.

Thanks Baz mate.   There really is no dents, scratches or rust...anywhere on this car...  I have gone over it with a fine tooth comb and wouldnt rest if there was...  i sometimes wish I wasnt so fussy as i can have everything looking spot on and still want to improve it somehow... which explains why the underside ..under arches and inside and everywhere looks so tidy...I just keep going until there nothing left to make it look spot on....even the bits nobody will ever see are like new.

I took it to the supermarket today for a drive out...  a nice lot of boot space for the Beers! lol... and was stopped by someone that wanted to look over it... they couldnt believe it!  Really makes it worthwhile when someone like that enjoys seeing the car.

Nearly done 200 miles now since the engine rebuild...  roll on the summer :D
