With the bracket out of the way I cleaned the hidden areas behind. I applied BiltHamber surfex HD diluted, agitated with various brushes, lightly rinsed with water, dried, then wiped over with AG Vinyl & Rubber Care. Some excess (gloss) still to remove.

In the future I'll revisit some of the oxidisation on the castings and alloy components to improve those.

Not earth shattering progress I know but its a long term project - I doubt I will ever part with this.

After a nice drive in the Sun yesterday - I fitted the refurbished tow bracket. Whilst underneath I had a good look at other components and have started to form plans for a big refurbishment/overhaul next year.

Not detailing but part of the project...

Chatting on FB with another QS owner about brochures.

Thought I'd add a picture of the specific QS and TT literature I have that would have been available for/supplied with the car when new in 2005/2006.

I have price lists, press information kit, News releases, Press images, QS brochures... I didn't get these when I bought the car but have collected them in my ownership.

Always nice to have if you ever pass it on to someone else
