2004 on a 53 plate
58K
Yellow Active Sport (8v engine)
Alloys - nice grey interior and generally nice tidy motor that needs a little more tlc to make him better

So what has been done so far? Well its got a fairly new backbox - but middle pipe went, replaced under its warrenty

Given him a darn good clean and wash, but lasts all of 5 mins been yellow

Pulled all the roof gutter seals out and cleaned the rubbish out from there
Also had the windows screen trim rubber and cleaned all around there

what i wanna do is get everything cleaned up, tidy alot up
add a few features i want back in

But here we go

So i did the roof gutters - they were really really ready.... which means all the cack runs down the rear lights.....

So out they come

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

once you have done a proper minting of the outside and used something like autosmart mirror finish polish topped off with autosmart aqua you will find it stays clean much longer

nice straight car by the way

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

Nice example. I like the yellow but personally i think black suits the mk2b's the best! I think it needs some toning down with some black like you have already done with the number plate surrounds otherwise a very clean well looked after car.

Ah you noticed the subwoofer

Well it didnt come with it actually.... Shame i know
it was always meant for the mk2, but i never got to fitting it
So Mk2b got it instead
Fitted but NOT wired up

Funds dont allow at this moment in life
Eitherway - its out my room now and isn't been knocked about

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

Looking good!
Keep an eye on those areas susceptible to rust treat them now before any problems develop.

I've noticed a few little spots appearing on the underside of my 2004 cars so it's worth doing

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

when the weather finally dries up
its getting a kitchen brush scrub and clean and dry - before been waxyoil'd up to give another stop chip layer

the sills are the killers - so there going to be done properly

the car needs a proper clean tho

The mk2 will always have a soft spot in my heart

But the mk2b is a much better replacement, its like that new pair of trainers you've always wanted, where as the old mk2 is the slippers you refuse to throw away

the mk2b is soo peppy - it better on fuel and i love the sporty looks

Mk2b ftw for now hehe

no
killer is
rear floor pans
offside /nearside rear chassis where it meets back valance
floors to sill if not maintained
if caught early before rust gets in then all it needs it a tube of grease smearing on these places and topped up once a year as the grease keeps everything from drying out

Re: Meet Bumble-Bee

i was unlucky i was hit by both
Floor plan and Sills

the sills had started to rot and produce holes

the floor was becoming flintstone line

Anyway - as i said - i will be cleaning the underside up and its getting a coat of Waxyoil to prevent it happening again
