looks like you done a great job on the clean up fella.

once your megs nxt wax has run out get some ultimate wax the one in the black bottle as imo its much better then the nxt tech wax and should bring out the colour more

how do you find the amorall shield wax on the wheels holds up?

80 quid all in. Direct from the sellers own website. They are 100 from the same seller on eBay. I will take some pics of the cabling install and post them too. Will need to wait and see if a get a letter making me to pay import duty.

Higgsy, any chance of a link to sellers website for the DRL's

Oh and a link to the boot protector would be nice :rolleyes:

All in the thread as catch lol.

Crazythegod.com for the DRLs

The link that I bought the boot liner on was in the op, however the listing looks like its expired now as it was 6 months ago. Was about 20 quid off ebay , there were a fair few around that price at the time if I remember. There are 2 different types depending on whether you have a spacesaver spare or full size so make sure you get the right one.

Basically the same as this current listing

Fitted some denso iridium spark plugs today and also refitted my k&n panel filter. I and no issues with my NGK R's but fancied a set of the iridium's, not really driven it much yet but have noticed it starts in a split second now a lot quicker than before (even tho we are only talking a second or so)

How much were the spark plugs mate cos I need to pick some up or motor as it seems I be takin a long time on occasions when it starts. I thought it was oil issue but sorted that and still no luck.

Plugs were about 42 quid from eurocarparts.

To do the drums

Wire brush

Small tin of smooth black Hammerite

Rust killer (hammerite krust) but this step is not essential as Hammerite is a straight to rust formula.

Paint brush

yeah great guide. be patient dont be tempted to rush. lightly key, degrease, prime wait 24hours, lightly sand primer down to smooth finish, degrease, colour code, wait 24 hours. u can sand down the colour code i chose not to. degrease, lacquer. leave for 24houra longer is better. i left for 3 days. fit to bonnet admire hard work :)
