Very nice Paul i like to see engine bays nice and clean , strange how we never do the same thing twice:-

by the way i was given some GT85 spray its perfect for keeping the engine bay looking new and all you do is spray it on no rubbing needed (y)(y)(y)

Well, my next job is to get that wishbone sorted and also the air-con, as it has a leak and has lost all the gas, I'm hoping it's not the condenser.
