Gave the girl a good thorough cleaning after she was my daily driver for the last 3 months. Cleaned all the seals and used Krytox on them for the first time - impressed so far. Got to use a new wheel woolie for cleaning. Now she is all tucked up on trickle charge and hibernating.

Discovered that Mabel has a brake wear warning light yesterday :eek: so booked her in to my indie to get them sorted. They are also going to address a couple of brake pipes that need replacing, due to corrosion, and also track and fix the leak she has from the screen wash system.

I have to ask...how have you managed to keep the under body so clean?
Car only had 14000 miles on clock when I acquired it 12 months ago and was previously only used in summer on dry roads. It was a bit dusty underneath but easy to clean. I only use it in a similar way to previous owner as I have other daily vehicles so it stays pretty pristine underneath.

Also injected Dinitrol into subframe voids and a few other areas......
