  1. Common sense on this one. Do a pre check on your car. Wipers washer fluid all lights etc brake pads and most of all tyres. The amount of fools iv seen go for mot with bald tyres with cords coming out is mad. If the basics are in check then less chance of getting a dangerous flag.
  2. No not redex. After reading up and watching some youtube vids it looks like adding 2 stroke oil to the petrol tank is very common for mazda rotary users like rx7 rx8 etc.
  3. So met a guy who tracks his lotus elise, has a 2zzge engine in it. I asked if he uses high octane and he said he uses vpower and adds 2 stroke oil to it think he said 60:1 ratio. I was confused but just nodded and carried on talking about handling and weight. Now im back home and wondering why is the plonker putting 2 stroke oil into a 4 stroke engines petrol tank? I have a feeling it might not do any harm since engines burn oil all the time but only time i see people do that is with lawn mowers and chainsaws. Any ideas?
  4. I got 2 lacquer peal spots in the front of the bonnet. Start of the year i sorted one spot by scraping off loose lacquer then applying more with a spray can. 7 months later another spot appeared so i repeated the process. Big mistake was i used the same lacquer can and its gone yellowish and looks shit. I dont want to spend on a respray so looking at a carbon bonnet or wrap or worse comes to worse.... A bonnet bra. Will get some pics up hopefully i can salvage it and get the yellow lacquer off and use new stuff.
  5. that may be a possibility, the garage i used allowed me ramp time since they had only 2 cars in for restoration and one old volvo for headgasket job, now hes got an old porsche to restore i wont be able to get ramp time in. obviously i had to provide the food for everyone. the garage is based in southam which is near stratford upon avon and im sure he will take more work on once a ramp is free again. google maps: https://www.google.com/maps/@52.2903822,-1.3937616,3a,60y,269.65h,82.13t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sRSkPM11GknONcDBUh2WHBg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 i did a basic job but my cousin wasnt impressed. if he was doing it he said he would have removed the exhaust and all heat shields and sprayed under everything.
  6. The wax does the insides of the sill. Taking the skirts off allows you to do the outside of the sill. I havent waxed the passenger side yet. Today i done the entire bottom wnd again using the compressor sprayer and upol gravitex. Took the arch liners off too and even sorted out the fuel filler pipe. Will get photos up on the other thread later today or tomorrow.
  7. Understood. Will lay off the door wax then. Ams do you know of any other areas the wax should be sprayed in?
  8. mines on a sloped drive. once i get the 2nd coat of stone chip on it and all waxed up it should be good to go for many years.
  9. Wtf? I had my eyes on a set of 30 quid jbl's lol
  10. That first pic looks like a lambda sensor for exhaust.
  11. Daily drivers seem to have less rust than ones that sit around most of the time. Very odd.
  12. Hmm if i take door cards off it may be a good enough excuse to upgrade the door speakers.
  13. Has anyone done cavity wax in the doors? Is it needed? If so whats best way to get the applicator wand in?
  14. Anyone used one of those car tents? Think you get inflatable ones too.
