    Just traveled back from a few days in Cromer and got a boring 37mpg over 100 miles...

    Then got home and found this had been delivered whoop whoop

    Put in K-seal to hopefully stop the mysterious coolant leak that has developed since i got my car home after 200+ flawless motorway miles.:banghead2:blink: It doesn't seem to like it's new home! (even though i bought goodies to make it look better!)

    Starting to get squealing on the rear brakes, mechanic noticed that the piston seals were starting to wear last MOT - anywhere that does refurb/repair/exchange? I thought DaveB used to do it, any suggestions?

    My Leon goes tomorrow, held onto it too long and beginning to have some issues with it so it’s time. Should have swapped it for something newer a year or two ago. Absolutely gutted to see it go after 6 years and nearly 100K!

    All cleaned and ready - [​IMG]

    I’m not replacing it yet either, will be just using my works car (sign written Fiesta) for the next few months.

    Just about to set off on a nice 2 hour trip to Norwich for a night out, shame it's pissing it down and the car is clean and dry but needs must! Just stuck my Cupra badge on the front... That's got to be 1bhp extra at least which should save me about 4 seconds...

    Gave the old girl a good clean, the alloys are starting to look a little faded so looks like some money must be spent... [​IMG][​IMG]

    I think its more for a distance look lol ive never been able to do a touch up. I leave the chips now as the car is 11 years old i can pass the odd few off as wear and tear

    Yesterday I dealt with this paint blemish on the roof caused by bird droppings. Looks like it was on the roof for a couple of days during the recent hot weather.

    This is actual damage to the clear coat and was invisible when viewed from directly above after the droppings were cleaned off but very noticeable at an angle.

    I smoothed the blemish out with some 5000 grit wet & dry followed by a first polish with some 7000 grit and then brought the finish back with some Scratch X.

    Very happy with the end result. It looks perfect and you can’t even tell it was ever there.


    Oh, and I popped out to the local dealer to order some wheel bolt covers as some toe rag seems to have help themselves to a few of mine!
