  1. Eventually finished with the clay bar (don’t have to do the front as it’s wrapped) on Saturday, got the whole car detailed and put it away all Sunday as we had visitors. Today eventually went hazy, so managed to machine polish the 4 areas needing a little attention (nothing serious), get the Bilt Hamber wax onto the non-wrapped areas and finish off with a coat of Manzerna wax sealant. I was pleased that so little machine polishing was required, but I guess I had only done 3k miles last year. All that remains now is to get all the insect remains off the wrap with detailer, hot water a

  2. A few photos from the Z meet at the Ace Cafe yesterday. A great day out, with the exception of a complete pain in the backside journey, particularly there, from the Gatwick area.

  3. A couple of weeks ago we moved 3 miles up the road to a village just outside Ashford. Not exactly adventurous, but it's a bit like being in a different world (with the same chip shop). The new house is 'properly' built but has been rented out for the last 15 years so needs everything renewed / updated / replaced. We like a challenge! It also has a rather handy double garage at the end of the garden which means plenty of parking in the back garden too! Here are a few pics. The garage was converted into an office by some fool many years ago. I'm

  4. My rear light had a crack in it from when I brought my car so water leaked in , but it still worked ok ,so inside the lens was quite a bit of residue which gave the light a bit of a cloudy effect, so I thought maybe I could open it up and give it a clean,but the lens is actually welded to the back, so cutting it would be my only option,and when I did it was a mess 😳 bits of the circuit board fell apart, as it was all corroded, so after some research planning and careful calculation I decided f@@k it il buy a second had one , £170 and two days later my car is beautiful again 😊

  5. Today started hazey, so I thought that a long-overdue external clean was in order. I was unable to get a clay bar to the panels last year for various reasons so this was the next logical step. I started with the roof, which was a mistake as the sun had been peeking through and it then took me 25 minutes to remove the clay residue with detailer. Lesson re-learnt. After that came the driver’s door, which had very little residue on it and turned out well. I also did as much of the OS rear panel as had been in the shade, but the whole car was cooking in the full sun by this stage,

  6. Well done to you both, hope you love it. My Zed is very jealous Strangely yesterday we had an offer accepted on a Bungalow in Attleborough, and towards the end of the year we will move, our house has a buyer (less than 1 day). No Double Garage for us but the parking we will have which means no swapping cars around all the time. I have just decorated the current house so luckily this one is turn key. I do want to change sockets and probably put a Ground Source Pump in - but just tinkering. Only 10 minutes walk to the rail station. Internet will be like stepping back in ti

  7. One thing I have found in the past few months is: 1. How much stuff you accumulate over nearly 20 years in the same house. 2. Whatever you think you are going to do with it, you are never going to use a whole floor of old Carpet - so putting it in the loft is a bad idea especially when you are 20 years on and you are trying to remove it on your own. So in the past few weeks, we had put in an offer on a new place in Attleborough, look towards Norwich on the A11 and you will find it. We had sold our home, only to find we had sold it to a Ghost - who then wasn't available to take

  8. We have been invited to participate in the Motorsports section of the RAF Brize Norton Families' Day this year on Sept 4th. This is how their Ctte present the event; I would like to start by saying thank you so much for agreeing to be a part of Royal Air Force Brize Norton’s Families Day 2021. We are very grateful to have you joining us and having all your wonderful vehicles on display really is quite a spectacle, especially whilst parked alongside the largest aircraft in the RAF’s strategic transport fleet. I just need to remind you of a few points, and detail some information for the da

  9. OK folks, the Advanced Course is a go, for in all likelihood Saturday 9th October and will be the Cornering Masterclass session after the decision was made by the group given the choices. There are currently 5 Members attending, so there is 1 more space if anyone else would like to attend. If so, just PM me or post up. Sadly though, the additional Performance Driver Track Day is going to need to be re-scheduled whlist we get a few extra numbers. I'm going to post up a new thread with the aim of seeing who may be interested in this initial training with CAT in April next year. So that shou

  10. Popped down to Cribbs Causeway in Bristol today and pulled into the car park to see a chap just getting out of his Nismo. A quick wave and hello to each other and I parked up close by to get a good ogle.

  11. I'm just waiting back on a couple of PM's to confirm a detail or two and then I'll PM the respective groups with how the land lies, potential date and costs etc. Hope to do that before the week is out as am keen to get us firmed up in CAT's diary ASAP.

  12. I did the performance day and the cornering masterclass probably 6-7 years ago and would be interested in doing it all again. I remember them being informative and building confidence around your ability.

  13. Thanks folks. @LESmo - it looks like you'll be settled for life there. It sounds & looks great. I'm with you on the broadband. We finally got ours in nearly 2 weeks after we'd moved in and have gone from 240Mbps to about 70. Still, it's doing okay and I've getting round to putting all network sockets and access points around the house (oh the joys of proper floorboards!!) With regards to heating we have considered lots of options but speaking with our neighbours a ground sourced heat pump isn't one of them. They tried that route but there's a layer of shingle that means we c

  15. I know how you feel, it's just a game that many of us play every year so it's just something that's expected! I've an Admiral Multicar policy as well, always so competitive. Even with the proposed mods for my Z in September, there were no problems and the extra will be only about £40. So much easier (and significantly cheaper) than XX and another "specialist", the name of which escapes me now. It was XX that wouldn't even quote until the mods were done, which I thought was completely nuts... 😕

  17. Hope this helps: Ignition on but DO NOT start the engine. OPEN the roof fully. Disable the interior alarm. Turn off the ignition. Lock the car. Unlock, restart and Start the engine, then Close the roof... Good luck

  23. Wow!, well done all of you. You've been more successful on Estate Agents websites in lockdown than we have 🤣. Double garages are hard to find, and I now carry a tape measure for garage door widths...who knew they come in different widths! and why?

  26. Well this might be a bit Marmite and split opinion, but I'm glad I took a gamble on 'Nismo Burgundy'.... Superb job by Xtreme Signs in Copthorne, Surrey today. The bright red mirror stripes were replaced as well to match.

  27. I think the UV light will take it's toll over time and regardless of what you use they will go cloudy eventually. I did a lot of reading on 370z.com on the dual halos and headlights in general and the opinion send that once you start down the restoration route then it becomes an annual job. I'm just waiting for my halos to turn up now then I can start my next project 😁

  30. Happy Birthday John - I hope you had a great day. Certainly been the weather for it. ( On the plus side unlike me a few months ago when I turned that magic date you didn't have to put up with Derby beating your team in pouring rain. And Wayne Rooney scoring his last ever professional goal from a Free Kick which was - I hate to say it rather good )

  46. How do ladies and Gents, After wanting a 370 for a long time i fianlly took the plunge an bought one a couple of weeks ago GT, Black, 2011 (60Plate) I haven't managed to get any decent pictures due to the usual poor Cumbrian weather (the ones attached are from the for sale ad lol) going to be doing a few subtle mods but concentrating on getting it top notch first, not that it needs much, the previous owners have taken very good care of it. so hope to see you around some time regards Cozzie
