Help!

Please turn off the rain, thanks. :upset:

I would love to get a chance to wash and polish my car. I've been holding onto stripes since December that I can't install. Additionally, my garden is close to becoming a protected rain forest.

Ha ha! Ironic isn't it, that since the day we were subjected to a hosepipe ban, it's rained practically every damned day.
I managed to give the Camaro a quick spruce up on Monday, when we had a mahoosive six hour gap in the rain.
Roll on summer, and hot? Sunny? days, and if that doesn't happen at least we will get two weeks of practically guaranteed sunshine in Pennsylvania for our vacation.

It sure is. Even with understanding how droughts happen over years and take years to recover, it's still funny how much rain we have had lately. I didn't even complain about the cold, which isn't doing much for my gas bill. Think we are paying for last year being so nice.

Hope the weather treats you well in Pennsylvania. Was in the states last month and wore shorts almost the whole time.

Me3 :-(

Managed to do £2k of work on The Beast, but only by taking it in to Bauer & Millet in Manchester :-O

There was 2 hours of hot dry weather here so I managed to get the Decepticon Icons on at last.

Otherwise it's just sitting on the drive... in the xxxxxxxx Rain.

Ask and ye shall receive!

Yesterday I was able to install my catch can, cowl spears, and JDP Color Changing Halo Kit. Today I was able to wash and wax the rocket and finally catch up in the garden.

Wow, seems like a lot, but as long as you're enjoying the changes.

Thanks! Hand polishing is horrible. My arms are so tired right now.

Seems like that, but it's still been a 12k cheaper experiment than a brand new one, and even when I've finished it'll be more, unique with more extra's :-)

Yeah, I've seen a lot of guys on the main forum, spec up a more basic car, saving £000's on the car, to modify it as they wish.

I'm not sure of your age group, but please take it from a middle aged bloke, and DON'T buy Lambo doors, they look so cheesy on anything other than a Lambo. Let's face it we don't have to try too hard to stand out on British roads in the first place.

Wow! That is blacker than a black thing. Looking pretty damn good though.
I'm liking the heritage grilles, but haven't got around to pricing one up yet. I'll have a look when I'm over in the 'States next. Then there is the dilemma of whether to leave it black, or match the yellow paint on the car.....

It would be cheaper if I had a proper garage or workshop in which I could house and spend time on the car and some local mates to bring confidence, beer and pizza :-)

I'm 50 going on 15 :-)
I like the Lambo doors, but, as an Industrial Designer by career my Gut tells me the offers are not what I really want too. So it is on hold until facilities offer room for prototyping... back to the drawing board for now...
