    Is there a limit to the number of times you can clean and coat? ๐Ÿ˜†

    Yeah, cleaned 2 cars and bored now. That said, if I send the Mrs out for 10 mins, I can guarantee it’ll come back like she’s been to a rainforest in Borneo.

    @gm

    Evening pal!! So happy to FINALLY see all those parts getting fitted to the RS mate!!

    And……. sheโ€™s looking F**KEN MINT pal!! I wish I had the car cleaning knowledge that some of you lads have??!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. Iโ€™ve never been a big cleaning guy.. I prefer to work on them and drive them!! Yeah, I can keep her clean and looking good but NOT to the levels that some of you guys take it!!

    I feel my baby is needing some serious TLC shortly so that sheโ€™s looking her best come summer time…… I just find it hard coz sheโ€™s left for 3 weeks minimum in Aberdeen and when I pick her up the brakes are GRINDING LIKE F**K and sheโ€™s just a mess!! I still LOVE her tae bits though!! Not sure which smile is the biggest……. the smile when I get back inside her or the smile when I get back inside the wife?? Haha… ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿฅƒ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘.

    Cheers, Marc.

    @brembo ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ… Evening mate.. Its all youtube knowledge…. It ruined me having a black XR2i as a first car, flat out cleaning it all the time.. Always done it normally in works time, when i was continental shifts ๐Ÿ˜†

    All the back end being done the next few days, if the sun’s out… and a full DIY service on the drive… Oil filter, fuel filter, Transfer box oil, gearbox oil, new brake lines & brake fluid… Just busting to be out in it!. Smashed passed the plod in a transit end of last week getting some bread & milk, bet they were well happy with the straight pipe pops & bangs…๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

    This lock down situation is mental tho! I’ve even rainX’d the entire house and all the glass in the garden! The wife cannot believe its taken a world wide pandemic to get me to finish my garden lights… 11 years is not that long for a sparky?? ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Hope all is well up with you ๐Ÿ‘

    @bobcat ๐Ÿ‘ take a look at this! I cannot believe this much rust in 3 years and 14k

    All tackled for now but, I’m ordering all new and going to strip and powder coat the new…. The existing is beyond salvage โ˜น๏ธ
