    Default Cleaned it properly for the first time!!

    Since I have had the car (May this year), I have only ever managed to drag myself to a European car wash for £2.50!

    Well there wasnt really much to wash, the bumper paint used to peel each time you touched it so was better of dirty.

    Anyway, now the bumpers have been painted and the SRI conversion is pretty much complete, I thought id give it a proper clean.

    So got the load of washing gear out, then went over the fine scratches with some colour coded scratch removed, then AG SRP, then waxed the whole thing. By this time it was getting dark so pictures are not great.

    Treated all the plastics to some AG bumper care and cleaned the windows with the AG windows polish.

    I was hoping to have this detailed and paint corrected, but after just giving it a bit of a work, im happy with the way its turned out.

    Cheers Glen.

    I dont think im going to do anything with the suspension David, I had "just enough" funds to do this transformation.

    Im happy with it for now, but lets see what goes wrong with it first, if its a spring breaking, there may well end up being a suspension overhaul - but nothing planned!! !
