The GTV, (purchased a couple of months back), work continues...
Have replaced the Cam Belt and Water pump, etc. a couple of weeks back, and last week it passed the MOT with what seemed 'minor' issues!
However, as the work now continues I have a couple of queries...
1) What is the 'best' for cleaning the engine bay? I don't want to use a Jet Wash for obvious reasons, but there is a lot of 'muck' that could be removed! Is it just elbow grease or is there a better way?
2) The rear seats look very good! However the fronts need a good clear and probably renovation. Can this be done in car or do they need to be removed? What are the best materials to be used? (There is some minor loss of colour on the bolster and a few minor cracks but thats about all!)
The clutch is being replaced next week, then all I'll need to do is paint the thing... The real issue I have struggled with is the wheels. Leave it as is, (16" std wheel), or buy new aftermarket? 17" 18" ??
Will get round to posting some pictures eventually...
