Well - in amongst the ongoing chaos of the last couple of days (see O18s :LOL:) I managed to find a couple of hours to give the old girl a bit of a spring clean and grab a few bits off the modding shelf.

First i gave the engine bay a good scrubbing down. Unfortunately I forgot to take any 'before' pictures but I suspect that no one had ever cleaned under the bonnet in the whole of her 10 years. I also apologise for the picture quality - my camera doesn't like sunlight!!!

After a good clean

Blingy UIM cover - which I've been after for ages. Was going to paint UIM gold but decided not to for time being - also blingy slam panel

Looking great Ian...but mate...think it's time to get rid of the coffee can! lol either that or paint the blooming thing black or something so you can't see it's a coffee can or are you going for the "it gives it character" approach? :LOL::LOL::LOL:

Very nice Iain, make sure the outside is clean for Fridaynight/Saturday morning mate. You'll be leaving with some more " GOLD" bling :)

She'll be going straight to the spit and polish as soon as the new windscreen is fitted Al - but God knows what she'll be like after 200+ miles on Friday afternoon - I'll bring me bucket :LOL:
