Gave it a good going over today. Full detox with tardis, fallout remover, clay bar and machine polish. Used a heavy polishing hex logic pad and these two.



Finished off with Dodo Juice Banana Armour. Came up alright.

I also spent the rest of my weekend making some more parking space, by gravelling the front lawn (which was full of moss and weeds):



I'd say I can fit another couple of rusty old VW's on there now...

Looks good, concrete pad would good if you could get it sorted then you could have a nice level spot of hard standing

That's better. Took it down around another 30mm and had it checked on a Hunter, alignment was all pretty good in fairness.



I've not gone crazy low with this being a daily, also I do like to drive it hard every so often so like to keep some travel for that.

Looks very nice. Always a good idea to leave some travel so you can push it when you feel like it

I gave this a service the other day whilst I could borrow my mates ramps at his garage. Took the opportunity to wind the front coils down a little more, feels much more planted now and less 'lift' on hard acceleration. Had a good look around underneath, apart from one original control arm starting to show it's age (I'll get it swapped in the next 12months), all looks fine under there.
