Thought I'd paint the rear wheel so i matches. Then gave all the arch and caliper a good clean. I didn't strip them this time as I've only cleaned one side. And wasn't 100% doing it without the the other side due to how the handbrake works. It was a little last minute.
Used a mixture of tfr. Jays ph mango wheel cleaner. And jays ph fallout remover. Then a few dressing products. When I do the other side I'll go into more depth of the products.

Managed to get a few jobs done over the weekend. Finished the wheels and ceramic coated them with Krystal Kleen Detail R Evolve X. Finished off dual the reverse light mod. And added some vinyl around the front grill. It's only a tester to see if I could use the cutting tape. So going to tape the grill out and do it right. Ordered some genuine 3m vinyl.

Finished all the arch prep and refurbing of the wheels. Added 3m gloss black vinyl around the the grill and bonnet lip. All brakes have been stripped and cleaned. Front beakes are over 2 year old now so looking good. On with the underside next.

The more I look at yours, the more I am convincing myself to get one! The only problem here is that we only got ST1's, no leather option and only in blue, red, black, silver and electric orange, although the orange ones seem to have been the favourite of boy racers!
Keep up the good work and if I do manage to find a nice, low-mileage example, I might be bothering you for advice!
Cheers
Martin
