@Mr Watton I haven't cleaned mine yet either.. Unfortunately MINI did it for me 🙄

 

They look the business and 'seem' to be holding air! Time will tell though 🤷🏻

Ahhh damn, unable to get the arm off. Even after soaking for a while in WD, not budging. I’ll have to get a puller which isn’t a bad thing I guess as I’ll have loads of other uses for it 😂 so gave him a wash behind the ears this morning before I go back to more home DIY 👍🏻

Depends on how many stone chips, just a few then a touch up stick from MINI would be my bet, if there’s loads then I’d budget for a respray 👍🏻

That’s the wiper delete sorted, and a tiny bit of weight removed I guess. Also while I was at that end of the car I removed some N14 carbon from the exhaust tips. I’m happy with the outcome so far, and I’ll post a “how to” on the wiper delete ASAP as I’ve took loads of images to go with it.

Hiya @James. Thanks for the kind words. I got the tape off eBay. 6mm in light blue and then trimmed it to suit the trim.

First time in probably 3 years...I’m polishing the car! Honest 😂

 

So tonight, front bumper, bonnet, “A” pillars top and bottom and the mirror caps. Some Menzerna Final Finish to get rid of the swirls and scratches, then some Zymol wax, topped off with some high gloss protection from Autoglym. Super smooth, bring on the beading!

 

Will do the rest of the car like the doors, rear quarter panels, boot, rear bumper, “C” pillars and the roof over the next few days ready for some more show time 😎

Thank you 🙌🏻 but it does need a machine polish/paint correction. Polished it by hand but need that super gloss finish now 😁 Beading in the rain shows off your hard work-only good part about it raining 🤣🤣

Yes @Mr Watton given how relatively few MINIs were there I was surprised how many nice people came over to talk. A credit to the cars and the club. Thanks for your efforts Si 👍
