    your plans for over winter ?

    Managed to tidy up and treat the rear drivers side wheel well. Weather is not allowing me sort the passenger side out. Need to remove the arch plastic liner and check on fuel filler condition and treat it if needed. Also need to get the side skirts off and apply cavity wax. May just wait till summer to do that.
  2. And he was happy: With his cake. Amazing printing job coloured cream and icing the potato phone camera doesnt do it justice.
  3. Has anyone done the ceramic coating on the car? I seen diy youtube videos showing how its done. Wondering if anyone has done it and has some feedback. Like to know if it can help protect from stone chips on the motorway.

    Pre Winter Checks

    Whats with greasing the fuel flap? Iv never done that and not had issues. But again prevention is better than cure. Does it sieze up?
  5. Dont bother with main dealer for mot. Find a council run place that doesnt do any work on cars and just mot. For servicing find a local club member who could help you out with oil changes and filters etc.

    Leaky Sunroof... Not the usual

    The sunroof has drains so i assume its designed with some leakage around the sides in mind. I managed to sort out my leak issues fairly easily. The part where the rubber seals with on the roof the sides of the hole in the roof where the sunroof fits. It has a lot of crud and dirt stuck to it. Used a rough cloth and rubbed around it for ages and got all the crap off and its smooth to the touch. No more leaks since i did it. Im guessing when dirty it allows too much water to get in too quicky and then overloads the drains and you get some over spillage into the car. Ya could seal the sunroof too the body with ducktape and see if it makes a difference. That will tell you it is a problem with the sunroof. Other area for that sort of leak could be the weather strips on top of the car closer to the boot side. Under there i had some cracks in the metal and used sealer to sort it.

    Newcomer & happy

    U could save well over 100 quid if u insure 3 weeks early. I used compare the market and found that if u do last minute insurance you pay a lot more than if u do it in advance and set a start date of 3 weeks or so later. Also check out greenlight for insurance i think they give club discount.

    E10 fuel?

    Would have thought anyone hoarding a classic car would see massive value drop since there will be no fuel to run it in few years. Doubt a conversion is possible or feasible without an engine swap for something more modern.

    New article here: http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/cars/article-6109487/Almost-one-million-UK-cars-arent-compatible-new-E10-petrol-set-introduced.html Says come 2020 they will stop selling e5 and high octane fuel and all will go to e10. So whats the verdict? Time to sell up now?

    Easy way to clean headlights done!

    Wont use any compound on paintwork risks wearing out the paint. Just use pressure washer to wash the car. Then use shampoo bottle attachment and spray all over the car with pressure washer. Then just rinse the car down with the pressure washer. Takes 10mins and im done.
