Dear Friends, I will cover your concerns as such. Mr Chubbs I liken myself to one Mr Jenson Button smooth on the controls and sympathetic to the equipment.. I did wonder if you would notice the W B

Washed her again.     How does she get dirty? 0 miles in 8 weeks!   Keep safe all

yep, late 2019 was operation 'clear out the loft'...guess where the 'we need to keep that' stuff ended up...🤣

very early 2021 is operation 'clear out the garage'...🤣...

it keeps me fit!

I'm not far away from the car fitting back in the garage ☺️ - does anyone have any recommendations for a garage floor hoover? Mine is very dusty/and it's a job i've been meaning to do. I'm not looking to go F1 style garage floor clean, but not getting the car mats dirty would be nice - Karcher WD5?

A problem I know well that one. My garage has a concrete floor and no matter what I do, it constantly has concrete dust everywhere. I've tried hosing out the entire garage and sweeping it all out but it's like the Terminator, it just keeps coming back.

I toyed with getting the garage treated or laying down some sort of surface but have done nowt about it yet.

The previous house owner had finished the garage floor with some form of concrete paint (about the only maintenance they did do) so I blow all the dust out with the leaf blower. If I'm feeling enthusiastic, it then gets mopped.

The floor paint is effort well-spent.

(Edit: Especially if somebody else did it).

I have a dust sheet down at the moment and the mini sits on top of that. I have no idea if its better but it seems to be.  I painted the floor last Summer but the tyres lift the pain and the ground sheet seems to have stopped that.

A few bits need sorting on the Nismo as it comes to its 7th Birthday in March - the daily commute and living outside.  I think I also want to take the opportunity to get the car ready for events later this year (fingers crossed).

So contacted the dealer to get costs - couple of items I will fit myself and the other I will have the dealer fit.

New Front, Rear and Wing Mirror Stripes - as the Mirror and Front Stripes are showing their age now - I may as well do the rear as that's the same ago and has cleaning product on the edge.  (Possibly the most expensive stickers in the world 🙂 )

New Fuel Filler Cap and tether (as the tether has snapped this winter) - Its a complete unit so have to swap the whole thing out.

New Nismo Steering Wheel - as mine is warn and I will keep the old one and get it re-trimmed when I need a swap in years to come.  Hopefully with less mileage the new one will see the car for a number of years.

There are a few other small signs of age and use - but these are the main things I think need to be sorted.  Hopefully I can get the steering wheel swapped at the Service and MOT in February and I will do the other items in the workshop at work when the weather is better.  I know one owner removed their stripes but I want to get them back to how they were on day 1.
