Ebay is probably the best place for cosmetic stuff on your car, everything can be bought from wheels to sideskirts, to those hideous plastic cigarette lighter things

Alternatively, do you have a scrapyard local? this is the best place to find spare parts on the cheap, alloy wheels are pretty cheap, and cosmetic stuff like vanity mirrors, door cards, buttons, switches etc can be cheaply found

For oily parts, like engine spares, suspention arms or stuff like that, then talk to your local garage, i can never trust important parts that have come form a scrap yard.

In Topic: Ford Sportka Centre Exaust Mod?

someone not like the ford ka? lol

i have decided that the spare is staying where it is, so re-routing the exaust is out of the question, could still place a different reverse light and sit a fake exaust tip in the stock reverse light position, but would look odd on cold mornings when the steam is coming from elseware lol

and i agree, that stock reverse light looks silly

In Topic: Squeegee Vs Chamois

good greif, i didnt realize there was so much to just washing a car lol

i always use a jumbo car sponge which is rung dry after each use and stored in a dry garage (away from my dad who leaves everything outside in the rain) the microfibre cloth seems a better idea though, the Chamois are a pain to store and last time i used one it left white streaks all over everything

plus my car is 6 years old now, the paint has dulled, its covered in stone chips and is beginning to rust (rust will be sorted this coming summer) so will the mit and seperate cleaning water really make that much of a difference? on a brand new car i can see how it would preserve the paintwork, but on an old car, surely it cant make the paint any better? or reverse ageing
