Winter prep/mods have started. (Slowly)

Winter prep has started. Plan over Xmas is is to take all bumpers off etc to clean and protect any parts needed.
I've started of with a easy task of removing the lights.
For a car that only does a few thousand miles a year it still gets dirty.
After the clean I gave it a coat of fusso. Two coats of meguiars ultimate wax. Then a quick detailer.

Also started on stripping the plastics in the engine bay for painting. I'll be doing this to them all. Plus engine mounts etc will all be getting removed painted.
The slam panel was a pain as ford decided let's not just put a sticker on. Let's put a recess in the plastics too. So that had to be filled. Plus I've modded it removing the bonnet prop bracket.

Any bolts I can will be replaced along the way.
And ceramic coating all engine covers.

Two bits done. I've got a little gtechnic c5 left. So I may have a go at giving the covers a coat.

Not sure which panel you was referring too so listed for all the bits.
Rear lights.
Meguiars wash with a detailing brush.
Fusso paint sealant.
2 coats of meguiars ultimate wax.
Sonax quick detailer.

For all painted plastics I used filler primer. Various grades of sand paper. Finished on 2000 before the matt black paint to try keep it as flat as possible.
And on the hot plate. Gold reflective tape on the rear.
