Still keeping busy...drained my SMIC today via removing the wheel arch trim. 1/4 to 1/2 a cup of oil, not as bad as i expected. Drenched it in carb cleaner a long with the accompanying pipes and let it dry. Voila.

Not given the Freetrack a full clean since purchasing.
So today it was treated to:
Snow foam and rinse.
ph neutral wash and rinse.
AG magma iron remover and rinse.
Clay mitt all over.
Roof got a coating of Auto Finesse tripple.
All panels da polished with Koch Chemie 8-abrasive.
All panels da polished with Koch Chemie 3-fine.
Panels and trim coated with Poorboys white diamond and wipe.
Panels and trims coated in autoglym hd wax and buff.
For a 13 year old car it came up sparkling after 6 hours work.
First pic is how panels looked after the claying.

Hello guys and girls.
Not been about for a while because the Leon died and I've been in a mk4 TDI pd130 since it broke down. Time has come to break it...its a pd150 but anything there is going on the golf but there is a lot more left. It doesn't have seats, crap ones and bad condition when I got it....wings doors boot wheels inside trim sensors ect ect all there if anyone wants them extremely cheap..I mean cheap. Car needs to go and I'd rather strip it bear than give it to a scrap yard complete and you guys may needs some bits. I'm up for swaps to :) what you got.

The golf....oh she's black alright..nice car, very low, standard needing a bit more poke

Where are you based? If you’re close enough to me there’s a few odds and ends I’m after..

If you've got a black one of these dash surrounds, I'd very gladly take it off your hands - saves me taking mine off and spraying it.

Otherwise, I'll take a look at the car and see if there's anything I need. Would you be able to post?

The dash surround is the same as your color mate.

No worries - I'll have a poke around the car tomorrow to see if there's anything I need. I'm sure you know as well as anyone, there's ALWAYS something.

The door panels are black at the bottom, my four others were grey. Maybe of interest. Do you know where the car is?
