Thanks for the info on the 303 aerospace protectant Paul, never heard of that product but I will be getting some!

Greg out me onto it. I think it's great stuff. It brings the black plastic up a treat and gives a nice sheen to the tyres. It's very water resistant. UV too

Looks a tad dirty mate!  We'll let you off though, the roads are horrendous at the moment.

 

I hang my head in shame when I see all the pics of your nice clean cars. Unfortunately I suspect it will be getting worse over the next few days.

Dirty car problem solved, it's never looked so white! Although spot the muppet that despite knowing the weather was coming forgot to put the cover on...

At least your new, temporary, cover is the right colour. Nice colour co-ordination there. It'll be when it comes off that things will begin to go downhill.

I did an oil change and made a general inspection of the engine bay since the under tray was off.  I always like to inspect the oil cooler hoses at least once a year.  I'm pleased to say they've not shifted at all and there is no sign of any rubbing.

 

I also fitted some new Whiteline front droplinks (I'll post up about the drop links in the next day or so).

 

I avoided eye contact with the new set of spark plugs which I've still not installed :blush:

I fitted the spark plugs today.  I shamed myself into doing it! - The weather was looking too unpredictable to roll the 240Z out of the garage but was fine to do this job under the car port.

 

I will write up a How-To when I get a chance :)

I'll get onto to that then mate.  I took some GoPro footage which I might look into editing but it will take a lot longer than just doing my usual write up.

A hand hint for doing your spark plugs - try and raise the front of the car up a few inches if you can.  I had mine on some low ramps because I was going jack it up after, and that little extra height made the job a lot less stressful on the back.  I suppose the same goes for any job under the bonnet - even detailing.  Parking next to a high curb would help in a similar manor, I guess.

 

Anyway, after doing the spark plugs I put the front on axle stands so I could adjust the drop links to make the front ARB a little stiffer.

Cheers mate.  The other red ones had a fabric heel square this one is plastic/rubber so it will be interesting to see if these last longer,  Cazza thinks them a little bright.  But I miss them when I have my black mats in the car. :lol:

I washed mine twice today as I wasn`t happy after the first snow foam and wash, the waxed with Bilt Hamber finis wax.

 

I think it need some further work though looking at the tar spots on the sills and the lower part of the wings so it`s time for a polisher, some G3 and a clay bar ( why does Electric Six spring to mind?  :lol: )

Have you tried the BH Wash?  I have some and its very good, I mix a small amount with the Snow, helps the first cut.  I took to the polisher of Friday, there were a few marks from the winter and you start to see where the Gritter got you.  I had a scratch in the passenger door I took out from people walking past the car.  I then used Collinite 915 and finished with my new favourite C2 Liquid Crystal - then it rained... all day long :lol:

 

But for a second at least it properly popped in the little sunshine we had.
