    OK - I'd hate to disappoint so I took some, very much 'Before' pictures this morning - as I am new here where would be the best place to share them and comment on them?

    Andy,

    A couple of options

    Click upload a file to add them directly to this thread ;)
    upload_2013-8-27_11-16-21.png

    Or, you can add them to the Media gallery, and then link them back to this thread by copying the image code links!

    Shout if you need any assistance!

    Thanks Gary - just one final question - I have a number of pics, does each one need a separate post or can I up load a number at once?

    I have put a load of 'before' pics on media and have written a commentary on each picture which doesn't seem to have been added - so the pictures all look a bit random without the description, but you will get the point

    adendum - just noticed they have been aded - sorry

    Hi, need to change sides to LED new halogen fogs and complete new light set up with Angel Eyes and a smoked glass panel. Any one suggest a good supplier?

    new mats needed and some chrome bling to add to my existing chrome bling, found a company in Germany that does it all but seems very expensive, took radio out to get new code as lost it (see my other thread) and then wondered why I should not change the radio cassette for a CD radio - I have the CD changer A for the boot but never got round to fitting it

    Hi Andy and welcome as well. Looks as if the rear window has a hole? There is a guy in Cov who made a good job of ours and steam cleaned the roof.

    Keep an eye on forth coming events as we like to get out and about and you can't be far from a few of us. I'm on the Warwickshire/Leicester border.

    Hi Brian, I am going to take it to STCS in Coventry in next two weeks, sounds like it could be the same one although I didn't realise they did steam cleaning too - must ask them - got a quote for £120 to replace and fit which I though was pretty good

    Hi Mike and Sandy I am in South Warwickshire, Gaydon and Silverstone fairly close by - whats with the Bubble thing?

    Thats the reason I had to go to STCS last year. Ours got hit in the hailstorm and the bubbles are all the dent marks ringed by the repairers.

    The guy at STCS is very helpful, infact he lives not far from me so picked the car up in the morning took it in and then brought it back. If he cleans the fabric he will tell you not to put any waterproofers on it as the fabric is naturally waterproof when clean.
