    Hello all,

    I thought i would start a sensible thread (got my serious hat on).

    It seems people are spending money on their zeds for the show in july :x .

    Id like to know what improvements people are undertaking for the weekend in July?

    I will start you off:

    Ive painted my brake calipers (blue)

    i have had my seat bolsters re-sprayed.

    Just had an oil service, diff oil replace.

    I will be having a new soft top fitted.

    I will also be having my bonnet resprayed!!

    The last job will be a detail (looking for a good company near peterborough?).

    Mark

    :D

    Definitely want mine in top nick ready for Zed Fest!

    > Wheel refurb is top of my list to sort

    > Few stone chips/parking dints need sorting

    > Definitely considering painting the calipers

    > Drivers seat bolster needs re-colouring.

    > Detail - looking at getting the chap who did my Z3 back. Cracking job he did on that!

    Yes. He works out the back of a Mini Cooper Clubman. At the time he also had a Z3.

    Top chap, worked really hard for his cash. http://www.theshinefactory.co.uk

    Well I thought once we're on there we don't have to have road legal number plates so Zippy will have his own commemorative plates for the piccies.

    I’m not sure where I’m going to get them done but I fancy designing my own incorporating the Silverstone track layout and of course his name and the date of the event.
