    Default And todays hard graft - Thankyou Bob :D

    With massive thanks to Sir Bob of Signum for giving up his day today. My last hose is now on and the car has had the start of some serious detailing. Cheers Bob, another one I owe you lol

    Bob has taken away my turbo heatshield and engine top cover to bring them back on Sunday as he's going to work his magic touch on them and polish them to within an inch of their lives lol

    A few pics...

    Car up in the air to get to the hose under the turbo.



    Old hose out.



    Bob refitting the new one (I did help honest lol).



    The turbo heatshield getting the start of some loving.



    Bob working his magic under the bonnet.





    The start of my DA'ing "lesson" and some serious paint correction.



    Turbo heatshield after Bob had done a few passes with the polishing wheel.



    Quick start on the engine top cover.



    It's clean (I washed it, honest it was me...)









    Wow, it hasn't looked like this since September 2004, infact I don't think it ever looked this shiny lol



    Amy got back from work and got into the act, working her magic touch on the wheels.







    And some "artier" shots because I felt like it lol

    Lol, yeah my hands are killing me, my back is killing me, my feet are killing me etc etc, but in fairness, I think most of that is from yesterday. Beyond getting the intercooler pipe disconnected and out once it was up in the air and washing the car, I didn't do a lot today, Bob did most of the rest of it. I did DA part of the bonnet as part of my lesson but happily let the professional take over once I'd got the gist of it
