Extreme Hoover Sesh

Well due to the typical scottish weather i took time to finally gut out the car..firstly finding a garage to fit the supprisingly large GP into...

Then decide the seats were faar to big so out they came and the interior was cleaned, hoovered and blackened.

Such a good feeling having a clean interior again

Next step.....exterior polishing....when the weather improves

mucho respect for that! The cinq could really do with that level of interior clean, but would likely start snapping off bolt heads :lol:

What did you blacken? Have very rarely seen inside a GP to know the difference

Just blackened all the trim so it looked showroom again. such a good thing to do specially as theres so much cheap trim on the thing. and talking about snapping off bolts, i ended up rounding one of the bolts putting it back in, for some reason was very difficult to put back in. ironically it was the passenger side, and usually the passenger weighs the best part of 19stone.....

So if anyone has a good way of getting a rounded bolt out please advice.

Yup, i'd use the same. I had similar problem with one of the cam cover on my 899 before.
