    1st clean in 4 months

    I noticided a rather insightly small bit of algae had appeared on the side of the fabric roof, today it had doubled in size overnight:



    So, I gave it a good clean, inside and out. Was last cleaned on 16/10/19 while in Monaco.


    The colour of the wheel does mask the dirt to an extent, I was very disapointed to see the bolts and wheel center logos I fitted last year, are corroded/rusty already .

    All done, what a transformation!

    These KUMHO tyres are completely flush with the wheel, no chance of getting away with touching a kerb on these...

    Unlike the PS4s on the rear...










    Much better now all round

    Can't have the fancy bit looking a tad unkempt, people will ask what she's been up to

    Must admit a bit of TLC brings her up a treat.

    I know what you mean about the Kumho tyres, you really have to watch what you're doing.

    It'll be great if you make it down to Gaydon in a fortnight, but as Jimbo says, the 19th May we'll be there.
