The great bunch of lads @ATS Wallsend have now completed the exhaust fix..... After 2hours on with the Oxy bottles replacing 3 studs + nuts the whole job was Free Of Charge!

I'm due an Oil change, based on 12months driving (around 6k).

CarParts4Less @£3.06 delivered. 🎱

Hardly worth the fuel to travel to get one cash!!

Oil change sorted, sprayed the wiperarms matteblack, spraygreased the servo cables on the sunroof.

I cut the undertray at the last oilchange, makes Oil filter much easier to get at!. But it makes the plastic tray flop down into sight.... So.... A piece of soft alloy plate, folded over the tray edge, crimped and with an upcurve bend = no tray sightings!

Bit of titivation of my arch edges...

Finally... I sprayed all the pipes and bracketry at the rear & sprayed the inside arch lips + along the lower sill edge and floor margin. Super easy to use this aerosol [stood in bright sunlight for 20mins... Nice and Warm!].

11.4 out of 10.... YaY

Yes.... The 'Wax-Oil' <no relation!> smells just like WD-40. I stood the tin in direct sunlight until it got hot! Gets the pressure/blasting way up, too!

It is a genuine 'shipbuilders swear by it!' Industrial metal preservative....

When it dries off it is effectively invisible.... White spirit will remove any overspray, onto bodywork, which might attract dirt and look smudgy.. [as one Detailer to another lol]
