Bought a clay wax kit to try out at the weekend


I keep meaning to try one of those, never seemed to get the time though.
I'm slowly getting into the detailing thing, so I'll probably get one to try later this year.


I can recommend the Meguiars clay kit. Comes with clay and a bottle of Quick Detailer. Very easy to use. You will be shocked how much crap comes off the 'clean' paint.

Then I can recommend the new Meguiars Hybrid Ceramic Wax. After washing remove most water but leave a little on the body. Spritz the Ceramic Wax all over the car and rub in with a microfibre towel. Keep working it in until buffed off and then power wash it to 'activate' the ceramic shine! Really simple and great results. Both my daily and the turbo have been done and stay cleaner longer. Easy to clean post treatment too.

That wax sounds easy, might give it a try on the dailies.

Just hating my car at the moment, fed up with the electrical gremlins in the middle instrument cluster, it also makes my Afr logger go nuts..

I have planned for a long time to hire a classic formula vee and upgrade my racing license to include formula cars. So this weekend i had a full training day in a vee and it was hilarious. So much fun, so much car control and race car feel, i might need to buy one, and also one of few series here with full fields;)

Driving it and driving it and driving it and driving it (the Turbo of course) and either finding new problems or hoping I don't!

Drove the Le Mans S over to my son's place in North Wales yesterday in absolutely appalling driving conditions. He's going to get to the bottom of the power steering leak - it's probably a leaking hose but might be the rack - and also hopefully track down the continuing leak into the driver's footwell. We've eliminated blocked drainholes and replaced the sunroof seal so we think it's either going to be the heater box needs resealing or the windscreen (new 3 years ago) is leaking.

Check the connections to the fluid reservoir, they were leaking on both of my S, the OE hose clips are useless, replace with jubilee type, the fluid runs down the outside of the pipe inside the protective sleeve and goes everywhere. The outlets can also crack due to overtightening.
