John, can you post a picture so we can visualise what you are describing? I seem to remember that Paul_S and Greg Warnes are well versed on window seals, and that JohnFK has had lots of practice trying to replace them.

Fred II - 370Z GT 2011 Gunmetal. Premium connect. GT spec. Seriously un-modified. See-through windows, and a wheel at each corner. Sold 13 July 14. Gone.

Jeff I will take a picture and video at the weekend and upload for advice I am puzzled as I can not see how the rubber stays put, as the window goes up the last few mm when shut the door it is pulling the seal away from the door pillar

This was the Zed after a Single Stage Polish with Menzerna Medium Cut Polish 2400.

 

Snowed with Valent Pro and Cut with AutoBrite Purple Velvet

GTechniq W6 Iron Removed on Wheels

Washed with GTechniq GWash

Single Stage Machine Polished with Menzerna Medium Cut Polish 2400

Went over with Collinite 915

Glazed with Krystal Kleen ReGloss Paint Glaze

Finished with a coat (or two) of GTechniq C2 Liquid Crystal

 

The light isn't great as its drizling.  But here goes:

It has been a bit like that.  But, to be fair, I have done the front drop links, the spark plugs, and an oil change in the last few weeks - mostly because I shamed myself into doing it.

 

My sockets and spanners have been very busy recently!!

Yes, but being RWD, you know how easy it is to upset them.

Just picked up my Millie from the bodyshop. This is what happened to that bumper on eBay.

Door handles were painted too.

Nothing much, just cleaned & re-oiled the K&N panel filters, gave the engine bay a thorough clean & polish, then did the same with the car. Nice day for it B)

 

and built a shed for my son.

 

It's remarkable how new it all looks under the bonnet, for a car that's not far off three years old. They keep their looks, don't they?

Just gave her my first 'proper' clean yesterday since picking her up (the actual first clean was in the snow and ice so couldn't even use the hose pipe as it was frozen!).  Polished the exhaust tips too to try and restore some of their looks.  Didn't look like they had been done for a long time, if at all!  I like a tidy pair of tips...  :D  :P

I was looking at UHD apparently Halfrauds had it for about £10 a few weeks ago as a mistake on their website but the detailing guys got it.  I couldn't find any at that price.  Although I do have vouchers and need to use them at some point.  Perhaps when there is a 3 for 2 offer.

Today I had to ring my insurance and add some miles onto my annual mileage limit as at current rate I was in great danger of being well over it come renewal at the end of July as there's been only one thing to do to your Zed in weather like this.. get the top down and drive, drive, drive!!

 

So yeah I've put some miles on over last couple of days, a few drives out into the countryside, a trip over to MK (shopping in Ikea, how sad is that, fortunately it was for items that would fit in the boot) and one up to Birmingham last night for a gig, it's been much overdue 'top down' weather. Fortunately the deadline for the work I should have been doing last few days is end of next week,  so I can get back to it on Monday when it'll be chucking it down again no doubt.

Did it cost anything to increase your annual mileage?

Yes Chubb's (other than the fuel!)

Short answer £35 for sticking an extra 2k on.


Slightly longer answer to put it in context: When I bought the car I thought 6k mileage for the year would be plenty for a non-daily recreational drive, not having had one before, but as it turned out even during the 'quieter' winter months I still managed to end up over a month ahead of myself with potentially the period it'd get used more still to come.

Insurance was £350 for the year so an extra £35 i didn't think was too bad and as it was just a mileage change I was pleasantly surprised they didn't want to charge me an admin fee just for changing 1 digit.
