Well I moved house about a year ago
It never came with a garage
But my little baby wouldn't stop asking me for one :chuckle:
So after about 1 weeks deliberation, I took the plunge
Here's my babies new hideaway(pics from my phone)



Thought I would give her a polish before she went into her new home :D
Used auto glym high definition wax
It was easy to use and what a finish :clap:
Just the engine bay to do next :bawling:













My only plans to do, are to go for a bigger brake package
Then draw a line under it....errr almost forgot
Maybe a new interior headliner might go down well also :chairshot:chairshot:chairshot

Here's the interior, just incase you all forgot :chuckle::chuckle::chuckle:
Oh and the engine bay, what the hell, here's the spec list also......

Like the re-trim. Great minds and all that.

I also like the little divider sectioning off the air filters. Can I ask what you've done with the washer bottle?

Thanks for all the kind comments :thumbsup:
Anyone who has been through all this knows what it means
Although the car was finished appx 2 years ago now, it still feels fresh

The washer tank is in the boot.

:bowdown1:

That's a cracking bit of lateral thinking there. I have been wondering what to put in that hole for sometime.

I guess that you've just married up the hoses at the front and used the feed to the rear washer to feed the front and put in a new feed to the rear washer.

I'm very temped to do someting similar to mine. I've long been wondering where to move the washer bottle to. I want to divide off the air filters and either put in an air feed or sink a NACA duct into the bonnet. Never liked the idea of the airfilters being right next to the turbos.

You've got me thinking now!

Thanks again for the kind words

With regards to the washer tank re-location
Unless you put a valve in the line before the jet on the bonnet
The water will run out with the inertia(?) from the car
Then when you add the valve, the motor is not powerful enough
This maybe due to the distance it has to travel
So the answer is to get a stronger motor to force the water through
It doesn't bother me, as I only go out in the dry whenever possible
And my car is mint, always got a rag in my hand :D

lovely 32 there mate, i think there is something mean looking about a 32, do your self a favour though, get a good detail done on it then watch the paintwork just sparkle, i used to use autoglym too till a detailer poped round to do the car and apparently its full of fillers to hide inperfections
once a proper detail is done its really different

ill get you the link to mine that the detailer put on the web so you can see for yourself
trust me you wont regret it

alex

here you go mate, bloomin best £150 ive spent on the car yet ;)

that looks stunning old chap
£150 seems a great deal for all that work and cleaning materials
I take it he's based in Scotland, a bit far from me
looks a great ranformation on your car
although dark colours always show a lot more than a light colour

cheers

John
