Just developed a rather annoying rattle, the silver button on the handbrake vibrates all over the place when travelling any ideas how to stop it moving about/rattling?

I put some anti-rattle (its sticky-back felt really) around and down the button slider. Do it on the lower side, so you can't see it.

Toffs ;)

Well after last weeks rain the car had got dirty, not mega mucky but enough to warrant a wash in my eyes.

The thinking was why just give it wash when its going to get in a similar state every week for the next few months so it got the works apart from a machine polish.

Ordered from Elitecarcare and Cleanyourcar.

Decided on the following process.

1.Snowfoam prewash (Valet pro snowfoam and CG Maxi suds II mix)

2. Wash (CG Maxi Suds II)

3. Clay (Elitecarcare fine poly clay and Dodo juice Born Slippy lube)

4. Lite wash (CG Maxi Suds II)

5. Polish (Zaino Z5)

6. Glaze (Poorboys White Diamond)

7. Sealent (2 coats of CG Jetseal 109)

8. Wax (Collinite 476s)

9. Wheels (Washed with Bilberry wheel cleaner, sealed with FK 1000p and tyres done with CG New look trim gel)

10. Exhaust (AG clean wheels, Megs NXT gen Metal Polish, CG Jetseal 109)

11. Windows (AG Glass polish)

Im not the best photographer in the world but heres a few pics.

After Polish and Glaze





Super Shiny



The Finished Article



















Also gave the GTi a quick wash







Hopefully thatll see it through the worst of the weather and make my job a bit easier :)

Now its marmite time, had these stickers for a while now and im quite liking them tbh.





Hoping to start my mesh grill project soon, watch this space :top:

After fitting my LED sidelights on sunday, I had decided to abandon my mesh grille project and just go for a balck one instead.



DPB grille sanded down and painted black, now I had fitted it back together eady to put on but the backing grille that came with my donor had a flush back meaning I couldnt fit my R32 badge, so I had to wip the on with holes in off the back of my original to allow the badge to fit.





Liking it at the moment, just waiting to see how my painting skills hold up :lollypop:

mk5 wiper to come next week :top:
