    Question Door Question And Exhaust Cleaning

    Just a short query. Have any of you had problems with the door hinge on the driver side door coming loose from the body? As in the screw, which holds the door hinge to the body coming loose? I notice it started coming loose on my Astra (5door) last week, so Iíve tightened it and all seems fine at this moment. Also I am getting ready to cleaning my car good and proper in the coming days, Iíve got all the cleaning products and toys etc etc, but I need to clean my exhaust.
    Itís a stainless steel one but seems a bit dull with all the crap it collects from the road and also the exhaust fumes on the lip of the back box, and wondered what do you use to get your exhaust shining like new.



    Many Thanks.

    Meguiars metal polish once you have got rid of the stubborn built up grime
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
