Ticked another couple of jobs off the list this weekend, the interior had suffered badly from dust and splashes from the painting and rubbing down process plus me using the car as storage for parts removed and stored inside for some years, not very nice of me for the latter
I have a thing about dirty door shuts, it drives me nuts and these needed a good going over as there was some build up of grime in the seams along the bottom and up both sides of all doors plus the hinges were grimy from grease over the years and all the sanding dust had attached itself to the grime , to me there's nothing worse than a nice shiny car and you open the doors and the shuts are filthy. I even polish the door shuts on my Renault master minibus
This is what I was faced with, all door shut hinge areas were pretty much the same.
This probably affects most of us but those rubber wiring boots are a real unsightly problem, NLA but there has to be an alternative/solution and I think I may have found it. My Renault Masters wiring loom that passes through the front door shut looks to be a very good match in length, shape and size. I will have a measure up and if it looks good I will get one and try it out.
This was the product and weapons of choice, I find the autoglym product is not so messy to work with as the likes of gunk even though they are more "powerful" at shifting oil and grease build ups.
Wife hasn't realised her tooth brush is missing yet
There is some little paint touch ups to be done to make better but overall the finished result is very pleasing
Interior came up well, gave the leather a good clean and thoroughly hoovered every nook and cranny.
Drivers seat squab cover is coming off and a work college is going to repair the piping that you can see has made a break for freedom.
Bleed brakes, oil and filter change, polish and wax then MOT. The list is very short, there may be some small fettling jobs that I have missed or I'm not happy with but MOT time is imminent
