Twin sunnies

Hey guys, i did a search and couldn't find much. I was wondering if there was something i could use to prolong the life of the roof on my Colour. I can see roof restorer and cleaners on halfords but i understand theyre for rabric roof's only? In my opinion it's not too bad at the moment, just don't want it getting worse. Maybe some sort of silicone spray like back to black would get a bit more life into her?

Off topic now, any panda owners use a car cover? I bought one from Argos, but it was useless and just flapped about in the wind and was too big (it said small!!), thought it would cause more damage than protect it I still need to empty the garage so a decent cover is needed There's a small leak somewhere, although i have a feeling it's around the windscreen and not the roof

Get that garage emptied. It's the best thing I even done was cleaning out our garages of crap and sticking the cars in them

Re: Twin sunnies

I really need to, but i'd need a couple of skips! haha Mine and my brothers boys toys really built up

But now we're into cars and bikes, it'll take a while to empty that garage
Will do eventually, i just need a cover for now

I'll post a pic tomorrow, if i can find it. The thread on the seams of the roof have perished away, but i dont think it's bad enough to encourage a leak. (I've sat in there in heavy rain to make sure!! )

I wish!! I dropped my mk3 down at the garage for its MOT tomorrow, that'll sting! Pads, possible disks.. maybe exhaust. I'm glad my purple panda is a slow project well, it has to be..

Same garage that made me sell my 126, i couldnt afford the work they flagged up on MOT

Dont know if you guys have seen my sig, but said 4x4 is dead Turns out the guy i sold it to destroyed his sisley off roading, then bought mine.. i saw it parked up outside his house for two weeks and then gone.

Re: Twin sunnies

The blue clx is in the garage at home, just! The 750L and good 4x4 are in the workshop as they're recieving some attention at the mo. Most of the others have just been banished to the back of the farm by my Landlord though as he keeps doing other things with thier previous parking areas, think he's trying to tell me something .....





I may have to move them again before the 5th November, don't like the way that bonfire next to them is growing
