    Decided to...

    Wash and Polish my old mans car and tooks some photo's as it's probably not gonna be long before he gets rid of the damn thing...







    and i missed under the bonnet i know... no point really it's going for a service tomorrow morning

    the cars a Feb 2002 Model 1.8 LX with the Duratec Engine Pretty decent car drives well i had the pleasure of driving it when i passed my test till i got the corsa kicked the arse out of a certain Someones 1.8 Astra aswell...

    We got the Car on 24th of December 2002 with 14k on the clock (it was an Ex-Demo) as it was for my Dads Xmas since then it's had to new rear Axles, a handbrake recall and some engine work.. it's due it's First mot in feb but by May Dad should have a new car either the Focus RS or the Mondeo Zetec S...

    Tomorrow Possibly give the Clio it's first wash and Polish since we bought it (it's never sat long enough to get one)

    Yeah Mate spent a couple of hours on it cheated tho didnt hand wash it ops: used the jet wash... but polished every single bit of paint including around the doors.. inside the tailgate.. Done the wheels with wheel cleaner the front ones are spotless but the back ones a Severly Staine with BRAKE dust :shock: cant figure out why the backs are worse than the front tho

    I'm not keen on the New fords.. but i'm liking my dads Mondeo and the two cars he has Chosen to replace this one.. It's just which one he'll get now..

    Focus RS VS Mondeo Zetec S (should really ask T-bone about this one eh )

    they are just seat covers by the looks of it - they do look a bit nasty.

Dads never really bothered with the car since we Got the Clio and since he's decided to change car!

    The covers Will be gettin Changed very very soon tho..

    only bad points about the car are..

    The Seat covers..
    the 6 inch Scratch down the drivers side Rear door after my mum missjudged the Gap at her work and caught a pole..
    The bonnet is badly scratch after my dad used a scotchy pad to get rid of dead bugs... (hence why i wash it now)
    and back alloys are badly stained from brake dust (will be sorting that this weekend along with scratches if i can borrow a space heater)
