This'll sound like an excuse, but I genuinely don't have time this evening as I only re-fitted the headlights last night :lol:

See you both there

Now that's not a bad idea, I suggest he uses some of his beer tokens for that.

Dan I only fitted my wheels today too. Laquer was left all day yesterday to harden properly.

I just love spending time on my car. Love the shine on a vr when it's just been cleaned!

@RandyMcShag : Gone the days that I can clean my own car Chris :( and instead take my car to the Local Polish/Albanian Car Wash where they do a fantastic job on my car =D>

Mind you it pays to know the Owner of the Business very well as he makes sure my car gets extra attention every time I bring it in :P

There is a guy that comes in quite regularly in a New Lamborghini Aventador and brings his own cleaning equipment :shock:

The last time I Cleaned,Polished and Waxed a car properly was back in 2004 and it was a Black car that looked gorgeous when I done it 8) and then went to work the following day,and when I got home that day the car was so dirty :x ,that I vowed never to spend so much time on Cleaning a car again :!: :!: :!: :!:

Tyres set to 32 for track. Fluids except oil check in morning done. Fingers crossed for sound check in morning and then hope the car holds together, mine really is built not bought :lol: . See you all in morning....

Back late so no time to wash the car. Hopefully last weeks wash will cover things. Got 104mile trip, so I figure washing would be a waste. I'll bring some quick detailing just in case it looks the worse for wear.

All filled up with Shell Ultimate, premix in and just got to check oil (must check).

Loaded my main tool box, 5ltrs of FL22 and oil, 2x 40ltrs V Power, trolley Jack, torque wrench, seat and brolly.
Now sitting here thinking "What for?" Because whilst I will be able to undo anything on the car what the point if I haven't got anything else to bolt back on? Aside from a set of hoses!

At least the torque wrench and seat will definitely get used!
