    Hi All,

    After last weekend's purchase, and a weekend inside my mate's garage, here are the results.

    Engine bay clean - Gunk
    wheels - acid free wheel clean A.S Chemicals
    wash under sills/arches - cheap stuff
    tar removal - Autoglym.
    moss removal from roof - toothbrush and Autoglym water based Motorcycle Cleaner
    wash - Autoglym shampoo
    Polish - Autoglym Super Resin polish then Extra Gloss Protection.
    Glass - Autoglym Fast Glass.
    Exhausts - Autosol.

    Aluminium bee sting aerial fitted.
    Justroadster stone guards

    Next is the interior, just waiting on some goodies from 'Storm'. B-)

    Cheers

    BS

    Looking good. It may be time consuming but the end finish is usually well worth it.
