Thanks, I rubbed it down with 240grit sand paper to get the worst off then 800 wet and dry.

Sprayed it with a 2pack lacquer I've got lying about in the van, although you can use a spray can if you don't have compressors and spray guns etc.

Let it harden for 24 hrs, then flat with 2000 wet and dry, polish with some 3m cutting compound and then waxed with collonite.

Need to do my voltex diffuser too as that's gone a bit milky in places

Lots, I removed my air box and fitted a k&n filter in its place, I lacquered my milky headlight that I’m just waiting to flat and polish, I also fitted a new rear splitter as I damaged mine on the hedge at the edge of my drive
Plus more to do tomorrow

Collected after 4 months away at mechanic. Delighted to have it back, bit frustrating not to be able to drive it. But we've got to pull our weight for the community atm.

Removed the horrible blueish window tints, and drove it up and down my cul de sac.

Yeah thatís on 235/40R17 now. Need to go up a bit at the back, but it should be all good. I ran 235/40 on AD08R with no scrubbing on track, but that was on 5mm more offset.



Iím near the limit though.

Yeah I've had these TE37's over the 343mm Alcons and 330mm AP, plenty of room. I don't know how much extra the Mad Mac things give you though, sorry!
