Changed the AC condenser, heater matrix, fixed a broken thread on the bolt holding the dip stick, polished the headlights + new xenon bulbs and and gave the dash a proper deep clean.

Not the most fun ever, but at least I found the leak... and a broken CV boot. :p

Replaced the rubber grips on the accelerator. brake and clutch pedals and cleaned the footrest. The four allen-key headed bolts and nyloc nuts easy enough on the accelerator pedal, top nut and bolt on brake and clutch pedal difficult.

Looks good. Did you take the footrest off or clean in situ?

I went to collect the grey one from Auto Avanti yesterday after having some paint and boot lid rust sorted... I didn't realize I missed the GTA that much. A lovely 57 km drive home when the sun was setting did wonders for the soul.

how easy or difficult is it to remove the dash?
There’s a lot to unscrew, but calling it hard might be exaggerating. I followed the Alfa workshop instructions and it just took a while figuring a few steps out.

quick check over for the mot and cant decide how to refinish the blacklines before fitting.. colour i had in mind looks rank in photoshop..
How about chrome or do a diamond cut variant like bmw style 92?

I've had a think....maybe with the Blue, an orange will look good. A burnt orange, nothing too garish. Perhaps also a more matt finish would be better, if possible. Just an idea to roll with. You want a change, and if purple is in the mix, it seems you're open to most ideas 😉
yes will try a few oranges and see what i think most people suggest gold but scoobys have done that to death
I think bmw shadow chrome will look great on the blacklines with your blue paintwirk MB. I like the idea of the blacklines 👍
will have a look car wheel specialist had a few chromes .. black chromes and silver chromes

thanks both
