Happy birthdy to you!  Good present.

Really pleased it's gone to someone on here.. but plese tell me you're joking when you say you 'jiffed' it?!  Surely deserves a one over with a clay bar?

Enjoy, and please bring it alng next month.

Thankyou very much  :smile:

I've had 4 previous white cars and have always used T cut to restore the paint but it's very abrasive and hardwork, I've been told about the jiff method and it really removes all the grime with minimal effort. This of course will be followed by a extensive clay bar session followed by a buff then sealing with extra gloss protection then lots of wax  :thumb:

The body is the last on the list though, plenty of other jobs to do before. I didn't fancy changing the oil with a semi hangover from last night though lol.

I have no idea about next month as of yet. Anybody have any ideas regarding the insurance situation?

Awesome car mate, and happy birthday.

Insurance - try Peter James and Footman James. I have 10 cars on my policy with FJ and have been told Peter James do similar. I'd be looking at Classic policies as well due to the age.

Yay! Congratulations, looks superb.
:happy:


Our cars are all insured through Admiral multi-car. Very very cheap for them all, but we will probably have to shop around again in a year as last time they hiked up the price at renewal time. Give them a try anyway.

Funny you say that but it's got a FJ taxdisc holder so will deffo be trying them. I really struggled with the Mira, because its not on the computer they just didn't want to know.  Tried lots of specialists as well but there just after your money!

The car is far too good to even think about breaking it, found out tats it's got central locking last night as well!

I'll look after it  :smile:
