Haha get out there and do them Preee!!

I had a spare hour while the other half was getting her nails done, carbon wrapped her bonnet lip and the two side bits of the wheel, then did the bottom one when I got back...

Was gonna wash the car but it's almost freezing here already and don't wanna create the ice rink lol!

So I'm open to carbon wrapping ideas, centre console is definitely one, thought about rear boot lip, not sure though..

what about your mirrors, outer grill trim, roof? forget that, when you doing the honeycombe grill?

i spoke to a chap on stoc forum and he does this for others and charges £60 for the conversion, he said he uses strong superglue and a few coats of paint to cover up and super glue marks. get busy!

I had the unfortunate luck of having a headlight go the other night, been replaced with halfords ultra brilliance lamps.

Always had good luck with the halfords ones, I've heard a few horror stories of lasting 3 months etc but I've clearly been lucky

Also I have a confession...... See below :(

Car washed!

For those who have asked in the past, here's a little comparison of pre and post snow foam on the car.

Pre Snowfoam

Post Snowfoam and Jetwash to remove foam and surface debris

So as you can see, Snowfoam loosens the top layer of grime and muck, mine is a fairly gentle foam too, more aggressive ones may remove more.

And here's what you should expect to see after the rinse off!

Usually around here the phrase used is "Don't clean me, just plant something" :p

My car is covered in all manner of muck at the moment, mostly diesel residue and bird muck.

Washed it this evening and it's already rotten again.

Waste of time and effort at this time of year.

Well thanks to a construction lorry, I have just had to fork out £75 for a windscreen...

The resulting chip was slightly too big to repair.

Here's some pics for a giggle!!
