    Default Just a few piccies...

    Spent today doing a wash and Meguars Stage 2 and 3 (did a 1,2,3 a few weeks ago...) and came up looking quite nice...

    Also did the wheels with Autobrite stuff (fantastic piece of kit, worth the fiver definitely...) and as I was taking them off, decided to try refitting my mud flaps. I say refitting, as the last time I fitted them I underestimated just how low the SRi sits, and the front ones dragged along the ground when I was sat in the car...

    Now, I'm not exactly skinny, but I didn't realise that I would make so much difference by just sitting in it, and found the back ones scraped when someone was sat in the rear seat...

    So now they're refitted, and don't come anywhere near the ground thankfully...

    The paintwork isn't in the best of condition, but I'm not going to spend hours trying to sort it out when what it really needs is a respray, as it's showing the results of the 60,000 miles it did in the 2 years before I bought it. Can't see them in the pics, but the stone chips are horrendous, especially at the front. Much better to buy a new car though....

    Enjoy...

    I did consider doing something about the lines of polish, but by this point I was beginning to have had enough of it all for the day...

    I know what you mean mate - takes a while jacking up each corner of the car and taking the wheel off, and trial fitting it in different places and getting the best combination of fit, looks and effectiveness...

    And ground clearance....

    I got the wheels brand new last September - bloke on eBay had bought a new Astra Design, but specified the 18" wheels, so was selling the 17's that came with it. Brand new with new Continental tyres, 225/45/17's, I won them for £200....
