Cheers buddy, Appreciate it!

Well a busy few days coming up, Round 2 on the bike this monday, then the following day the car is going off to Jake at True Depths Detailing to have a good going over and machine polish, just in time for FITP :)

Few things have been done, professionally sprayed boot grab and door handles thanks to Paintmodz.

Expect more photos in the coming weeks :)

Hi James, I think the car looks spot on, as some have said they don't like the bonnet bra -so what we are all entitled to our own opinions, looks ok to me its just not a common sight, loads in USA.

I have been looking at this type of polish for my dark morrello Fiesta as I have some swirl marks on the bonnet I inherited when bought.

Anyhow, keep up the blogging as its good to see subtle mods done.

I am also looking to have my tdci pumping more torque as its prety flat at low revs.

Cheers

Martin

Hi Martin!

I'v always liked them really, never thaught I'd have one on my own car though, I only ever use it for shows/photos. Simply bought due to a huge stone chip in the bonnet, along with a small crease where the bonnet latch is (hardly noticable to be honest) but enough to bug me!

Poorboys black hole is really good for covering up minor swirl marks and scratches. I use Megs ScratchX for scratches and that seems to work a treat. However nothing will ever completly cover up the swirls, other than a paint correction/machine polish.

The remap completly changed the car, best £ for £ mod iv done.

Hi James, thinking of either a TDI box or a re-map from Angel tune.

I have been looking for a while and there is a good tutorial on fitting the TDI box on here to my exact model.

My 'friend' Lenny has also had his tdci re-mapped plus other stuff.

It really annoys me when I get stones bouncing off my cars as it was almost factory fresh when I bought it almost a year ago with 8,500mls but have done almost 27,000 mls so to be expected, almost all done on M6 so stones travelling at high speeds are expected to leave there mark!! 

Any how all the best

Martin

Cheers guys, appreciate the comments.

I guess the main thing is I love the car, but when others like it so much too, it makes all the time and effort worth while :D

Anyway... Round 2 of the national championship on the bike tomorow, looking forward to it, currently sitting 7th in the championship after round 1 so look to try maintain a top 10 position.

This is looking nice. I quite liked the 'S' badge on the front, gave it it's own look compared to others that you see

 

You done anything to the inside of it?

Not done much interior wise to be honest, that will be last if I decide to do anything, iv fitted aux plug, radio controll stalk and scangauge II and thats about it.

I played with the idea of the 'S' on the front grille but went off it quite quick :/

Anyway, just got back from round 2 of the national championship with another solid 7th result snatching the position on the last corner of the last lap! Loving the racing at the moment, really have stepped up another level this year. No more being spent on the car for the next couple of months as its all going into keeping me out on track as much as possible. Round 3 only 2 weeks away and cant wait!

So took the car to Jake at True Depths Detailing yesterday for a 'Quick' going over ready for FITP.

Arrived at about 8:30am to see Jake waiting with pressure washer and foam lance in hand ready for work to begin!

So first step was a going over with snow foam, whilst that dewlled jake went round all the hard to get at areas with a APC and brush, window edges, door shuts, panel shut lines, fuel cap etc etc..
Then he set about the wheels too. Once the car was rinced down he went over the car with shampoo and wash mitt. Once the car was rinced off again he then moved onto fall out remover (Boy that stuff stinks!!), another rince and then a layer of tar remover.
Once the tar remover had done its work we clayed the car ready for machine polishing.
Jake only lightly went over the paintwork with AM glaze with the M/P because the swirling wasn't too bad and we plan to give it a full going over later in the summer when he has a unit set up. So after a couple of blasts over with the machine polisher (which I was too scared to use! lol ) he then polished a couple of needed areas by hand and then sealed with AM seal to protect. Trim and tyres finished off with Megs endurance tyre gel.

Heres some snaps from the day:

Also, as you may remember me mentioning, it was round 2 of the NMRRC championship. Currently 7th in the standings after what was a fantastic round 1 for me as I honestly thaught going into that weekend that a top 15 result was going to be difficult.

Anyway, round 2, new track which I'd never riden before, practice went terrible and couldnt get to grips with the track, due to slow pace learning the track I couldnt get any heat in the tyres, which ment no grip!

Heat 1, started 9th I think, finished 6th in what was a boring race.
Heat 2, started 7th finished 6th again, closing down the guy ahead to take 6th place on the last lap.
Final (the only race you score points towards the national championship) Started 12th finished 8th after getting held up behind a couple of slower riders on a track with very very little oportunity to pass on.

After another great days racing, I have done the maths and IF I'm right, after round 2 I have jumped up into 5th in the championship!

Didnt upload heat 1 as it was boring.

Heat 2 - Watch out for the last lap effort to make up positions!



Final - Again, last lap effort, last corner to gain an extra point.

 

Please feel free to give them a like, and even subscribe! I have lots of videos, and a few 'off's' which you might enjoy haha!

I picked up a set of colour coded door moulds and had them fitted during the day. I think they make a huge difference!
 

Not much else planned to be honest, funds now going towards racing which is going rarther well so far.

This year I hope to get a black sun strip in the windscreen, and a set of wind deflectors. Other than that not much else will change.

Then next year I plan for a change of wheels, but lots of saving is needed to get what I want on there :)

What are colour coded door mouds?

How did you tint your front fogs yellow anyway? And where did you get the boot key cover from?

 

Loving your car and all the little touches!
