    Default My Veccy 1.8 as it stands...

    ...So, thought I'd post a few pics of my new (to me) car of how it stands...I should have taken some proper 'before' pictures but I only managed to snap a few rough ones after I'd given her a simple quick wash really, as I've spent a good 8-9 hours on her since then lol...!

    Washed her using Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo, then polished with SRP (2 times over), then another 2 times over with Extra Gloss Protection...


    Before:





    On a side note, the Air Filter after 10k miles since it's last service with Vauxhall...I changed this and my fuel economy went up Drastically...!!




    ...After Pics...


















    Thanks for looking...!

    Looks good, did you notice any difference from applying 2 coats of SRP, only ask as it has abrasives in it and wondered if the top coat took the bottom coat off.

    Good looking motor m8, as said filter hasn't been changed - if ever, just rotated the odd time as you can see the two flow patterns.
