The other day I was instructed by the "better half" to (and I quote) "go and clean my car" ... so that is exactly what I went to do "clean my car" :thumbs: ... anyway it turns out I've run out of car shampoo stuff, so out comes the fairy liquid :thumbs: ... whilst routing through the box of car stuff I came across some AutoGlym polish that obviously hasn't been used for years so I thought I'd give it a go ...


... the trouble is that this is probably the first time I've had a really close look at my car and I've come across some "things" I'm not that happy with ... so how would I go about repairing these myself ??..



Obviously a botch job on repairing the rear bumper ...




and an "attempt" to fit a roof rack

On the bumper you could 'fill' it with some paint, then wet&dry it smooth, that should work. I don't know about the roof though.

Leave the roof, not worth it. Even a pro job would be visible up there.
And that would need roof lining out etc.

That's pretty much what I was thinking ... :thumbs:

Chips away could sort you out - might be 200 notes though ...
It doesn't bother me that much ... :D

A good mop, filler it, will need resprayin then wet flat n polish.
Sorry for my ignorance ... but what do you mean by mop??? :confused:

My only concern is that there is a hint of rust ... don't want it to get any worse

I wish I hadn't cleaned it ... but now I knows it's there it is going to bug me :(

Nah, it's just a tractor ... all I needed was a FSH and a recent Cambelt change ... (which is why this is probably only the second time I've cleaned it !!!)
