It’s all about the details. Pedals cleaned and new Silverstone mats in the car.cfc1520b42e3c6fc386b290de9c812b7.jpg

I've seen you mention cleaning the pedals before. Mine could do with a once over - what do you use?

Just polish on a micro fibre just rub hard and clean off straight away. A couple of good rubs they are great. Last time I did mine was about a year ago. I just clean then first with quick detailed to get rid of the dirt.

Wow its stupid hot out there today, I am so glad I did the paint on Sunday.  No way would I have got it done today.

 

 

Washed it to get rid of the weekly commute.

So today - I have finished off by Hoovering the boot and inside.

Cleaned the Air Filters, Rubber / Plastic protected the engine bay.

Cleaned and Protected the Wheel Arches

Cleaned the Wheels and Protected them with Wheel Sealant

Fitted new Dust Caps (and copper greased them to prevent them jamming on) 

Changed out a Failed Internal LED Light (replaced both as I had the tools and the spare lamps)

Cleaned the Exhaust (as far as I could reach)

Put in the new Mats

& Started to pack the car with various things I need to remember to bring

 

A few pictures.  I think the car is ready.

Now this will be entertaining as I can only get to half of the car at any time, due to the sunny conditions.

So, let battle commence!

What is needed is something like this:

53B7F18C-875C-449B-AC88-33989339378B.jpeg

It is still warm (28 degrees) but Im out of direct sun, and so is the Zed. Just finishing the sealant coat on top of the wax. Bar open.

Just saw this on Facebook and thought of the Zone we are in at Silverstone.  What colour would you like your car sir?

I'm creamed. Got as far as the sealant, which needs 12 hours to completely bond.

Some progress post though.

Aaaarghhh!!! Pictures of you guys cleaning your cars is killing me!

 

I haven't got as far as thinking about cleaning either of mine yet and Peter and Rachel will have got across the channel and be at hours midday tomorrow ready to convoy to Silverstone :sweat:

 

Your motas are going to look so good and mine will probably get a slap of quick detailer on the day :lol:

Not bad really.  It meant the car kept cool enough to glue some rubber bits to it :)
