Right then, good news and bad news....

Good news: The last two major bits are now done [cheers]
Bad news : It's made me realise the shifter surround and steering wheel trim also need doing [d'oh!]

Oh well, it's all fun, right...? [Anxious]

Out with the dash piece and driver's side vent





Time to clean and degrease





Cut to 40 minutes later and we have this









The vent wasn't too difficult really. The added challenge was that you have to cut down the seems where the trim meets the actually grills.

The next one wasn't so easy. In fact it was a massive turd to do, both times (don't ask!!) [d'oh!] [Mad] However, about 90 minutes later, many concentrating (gurning) faces and a few of the bad words, we have this



Altogether it looks like this



My pleased face ---> [Very Happy]

Me too, which is why I did something about it [Wink]

Because I'm a glutton for punishment, can't rest while jobs aren't finished and really wanted an excuse for a night off the gym, I did this:















Et voila





I was expecting it to be a massive turd to do, based on the what I'd seen (and experienced with the last one...). In reality it was pretty easy and oddly satisfying. Which means I'm either getting better at this or the whole thing has broken my mind [Think] [Laughing]

Just the wheel bit to do now [Anxious]

Sorry Phil reference the black finish I don’t have the BMW anymore.

From work I’ve now a merc with a similar black finish. I use a bit of car wax on it that keeps it clean and doesn’t smudge easily.

Hope your still enjoying your Mr2 too.

No. 8 is off the road at the moment, as I have plans to do some preventative maintenance over the autumn and winter. Even great examples can't avoid the effects of time, so these little bits will keep it youthful for years to come [Smile]

Ticked another job off the list yesterday: De-badging the side logo. It's probably well known by now that I dislike stickers, badges, or just anything that distracts from the clean lines of cars. So inevitably this one had to go. This M235i is staying on the back though, that I feel needs to stay.

How things stood after a week and 700+ miles of driving, in all manner of weather conditions:



Out came Adrienne's hairdryer again. I've spent far too much time with a hairdryer in my hand this last week! [Laughing] Took less than 30 seconds to heat it to the point where it easily came off, leaving minimal residue.





A pass with an alcohol wipe and some polish later



One side done, on to the next







Swiftly followed by giving it damn good wash!
