Some further work on the garage today sticking in a couple of units and worktop that arrived slightly damaged when the new kitchen was put in just before Christmas.

It’s starting to come together and looks really good with just the two cars in there as there is space to see them properly. It can hold three but as you can see they are just wedged in with one of them having to go on skates to make way for the other two.

I did mention a garage extension one night when the good lady was rather boozy but didn’t go down well.

I do like well furnished garages.

Are you coming to Turbo40?

Mylando,

Going to be an amazing event for owner and would be owners alike !

Really keen to do some more road trips this year following the success of our week away in Oban last year so got the date saved and will try my best.

How many cars are you up to so far ?

Have the day off today and just fitted a new battery to the Boxster. The only car not to be plugged into a trickle charger when not in use and just proves how beneficial these things are.

Anyway, while fitting the new battery noticed that a lead at the right hand side of it had come loose (or so I thought) so connected it up and switched the battery on but then heard a bit of an electrical connection kind of noise so switched it back off and investigated further.

Looks like it’s the alarm unit that’s toast and now thinking that this must have been the case since I bought the car and just been unplugged. Either this or extremely coincidental that the connection came loose just at this time drawing my attention to this.

Either way now on eBay for a replacement.

I can guarantee that battery inside the alarm will be dead.

Looks like its been opened before. Silicone sealant doesn't look 'factory'

On the battery, got it from Tayna Batteries for £106 delivered (which was a good bit cheaper than the likes of euro car parts even with the sale prices) and no problems whatsoever, arrived within a few days and really well packaged in a vacuum bag and sturdy box.

Body shop products. 3M is a little aggressive, OK for scratches and defects but will leave marks. Rupes is an 'all in one' polish + sealant needed to shine out the 3M. They just need them to look shiny under strong lighting.

As Steve said, that 3m is a compound and would cut quickly into the paint. It needs a follow up compound or polish to get rid of marring. The other product is full of fillers so will cover up any residual marks until it wears off- often not long afterwards.

There are better detailing solutions out there.
