Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

After 3 and a half years of RX ownership I finally started a day with a flat battery after leaving the boot unlatched and car unused for several days.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Sorted the N/S headlamp today, decided to hide the etch primer can so as not to make the same mistake as the O/S headlamp. A bit more effort required with this one as it had surface scratches as well as UV fogging. Started with 400 grit wet&dry, claning betwen each stage I then moved on to 800, then...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Give it a go.

Doesn't take too long but it is a bit disconcerting taking wet and dry to a headlamp.

UV resistant Clearcoat is a must as a finisher otherwise they'll go cloudy within a couple of months.

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Thanks, I can recommend not using the etch primer! Would have done both headlamps this afternoon were it not for that slight hiccup. Bloody hell they look like new! My friend used T-Cut and elbow grease to restore mine. [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Restoring RX8 headlamps. Step 3: Ensure area is clean and dry, use a clean microfiber cloth to ensure a good quality surface. Carefully mask off the headlamp and surrounding area. Accidentally pick up tin of etch primer instead of clear coat and apply a good layer! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2...

Restoring RX8 headlamps. Step 2: Clean headlamp with fresh clean water. Apply rubbing compound and using an orbital pad buff headlamp to a good polished finish whilst regularly spraying with clean water. Remove wet masking, clean and dry area thoroughly! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180918/875...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Restoring RX8 headlamps. Step 1: Mask off the headlamp and wet sand with 1500 grit wet and dry. Regularly spray with clean water and check progress. Wash off and repeat with 3000 grit wet and dry paper. The headlamp will have a dull finish. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180918/ee3f05ea03af1fd9c...

Snagged some spares for the PZ today. In other news, car taxed and MoT'd, my bank account lighter by about £1,000 (damn you unnecessarily expensive road fund license and carbonfibre-effect braided brake pipes)! https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180829/733f7d76224e0c7aa6c8596ffcc6dcca.jpg Sent from ...

Probably won't make it this Friday but will try to be there.

I've been a bit out of it of late. Mixture of ill health and work.

Re: PZ Limited Edition Numbers, THE LIST

Looks like I'm #690 on the list :) Coming up on 2 years since I got my PZ, loved every moment other than when the oil lines corroded and dumped several pints of Mr Castrol's finest all over my driveway! Oil... It's happened to us all. I'm my car twice, once with the nearside oil line and then the o...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Car clipped again on nearside rear, this time whilst i had stopped. Picture 1 you can see that they caught the tyre (I had moved the car by the time i took the picture) Picture 2 after trying to polish out scuffs, unfortunately chips dont polish out. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180515/afbc729...

Re: Powder coating

Nice, looks good in white.

I'm saving up to get my PZ alloys done.

How much did it cost per wheel?

I'll be there. Been looking forward to this. Might even bring my 8. What was the car park status the last time you were there? Super busy or plenty of space to park miles away?
I'll be bringing mine!
