    Ordered another Uniroyal Rainsport 3 and contacted Big Fish Tuning to book some time to have the map tweaked and some time on the rollers.

    All due to me having a play with a grey FR which had been mapped by John and it left me for dead haha.

    Thought I would make the most of the weather and gave the FR a big detail. Didnt take any before shots though stupidly.

    Started off by blasting it with the Nilfisk to get rid of the top layer of dirt and dust, then gave it a layer of snow foam, rinsed with the Nilfisk again, then washed using AF lather, 2 bucket method, rinsed again, iron-x the whole car, rinsed again, dried, polished with PB black hole, waxed with Nattys paste wax, tyres dressed with Megs endurance gel, exhaust polished, trims and mud flaps treated with AG bumper and trim gel and finally gave the tyre another layer of endurance gel.

    Took me 5 hours all in all.

    Whilst it looks good I found some things that need attention....drivers side wing is bubbled on the underside so will be contacting Seat as it should still be under the bodywork warranty. Also the passenger side inner rear light has a broken lug which means its letting water in and finally the plethora of fine scratches I found mean I'm going to have to spend quite a few days with the machine polisher over the summer.

    Booked the FR in with Big Fish Tuning on the 3rd June for a session on the rollers and to have to map adjusted. Aiming for around 215bhp.

    Also had another Rainsport 3 fitted last night.

    I don't know for sure as it hasn't been on the rollers yet, but I would say about 200-205.

    Couple of weeks ago I give my Cupra R a good wash, snow foamed, washed, dried , tardis, rinsed, iron-x, washed, dried, clay bar, polish, and waxed. I was very impressed with the results,

    Paintwork must be spotless now after those stages of cleaning. Looks great in the photos

    Cheers, It was spotless until I went for a drive in the sun and killed loads of flys.
