    after the other half took it through an autocar wash =[ wax everywhere wheels not done properly, water marks everywhere and light scratches across the body work [:@]
    so re did myself,
    1. wheels done with ag custom wheel cleaner
    2. washed with ag shampoo and conditioner
    3. after rinsed it off and dried then went over the whole car with ag paint renovator, lifted the damage done by the car wash
    4. ag srp was then used to give it a decent shine
    5. ag hd wax was then used to seal the paintwork and the windows done with ag fast glass
    and here's the results

    although im now out of srp, i know its not the best but it was part of a pack i got for xmas.
    Any suggestions on a better similarly priced alternative?

    im hopping the rest can be taken out with a DA so itle be booked in for a paint correction which should hopefully see this gone

    but on a plus side finally got something to better fill the exhaust cut out in the bumper

    not updated this in while and tbh not much has happened :/

    gave it some winter protection in the form of a few layers of poorboys nattypaste blue, best smelling car cleaning product ever imo
    [​IMG]

    also got a bonnet bra for motoway driving, which caused a fair bit of facebook banter :rofl:
    [​IMG]

    lcr splitter next, and lows just need to decide on what coilovers to get, want decent ride with small or no arch gap, maybe weitecs?

    Good ready buddy. Tidy progress so far. Liking the colour. Theres one near me the same colour and im particularly fond of it.
    My bonnet bra caused a little bit of a stir as well mate.

    As for the coils, im eying either apex rdx's or vogtland tec lines from dpm performance

    dont suppose you know what size the exhaust is do you mate?
    im looking for one and im looking at a 6"x 4" and i think it may be too big.

    so before going to the lake district i treated her to a much needed detail

    [​IMG]

    which left her looking like this

    [​IMG]

    then while i was away this happened when i got caught in the heat of the moment and failed to check my blind spot while overtaking a lorry and collided with a zafira :/ but accidents happen im just glad i didn't hit a motorcyclist

    [​IMG]
    :bash:

    managed to find a replacement bare door at a breakers yard in ls7z for £50
    ordered a side moulding from seat just over £10
    been quoted £180 for the sill to be repaired and painted and everything swapped onto the replacement door
