    He said better quality paint but I’m Not sure how that makes a difference?

    That is a great finish Bund, are the side steps going to get polished up to match?

    Certainly be cleaned, he’s said the rubber has been glued on to the steps. I get the feeling they’re rather bored of it so I’ll have a go at removing the glued rubber.

    It’s probably something I can manage with my skill set! Haha

    It just keeps going :expressionless: so Cars looking good on the outside though there are mechanical issues to now address. Bens helped with the likely oil leaks and it’s going to be washed again underneath to see what’s what.

    The only time I drove the steering wheel was off centre which really upset my ocd. They take it to get it tracked at a place called tubbytyres in crawley(can’t see it as the 4/4 specialist I was told)said the rods are seized, Bens said he’s seen worse. They heated them up at the end and supposedly clamped them with a long wrench but are saying they’re seized.

    No such thing as a seized track rod thread IMO, slide the clamp off, heat it to cherry red, quench it a few times in paraffin/diesel mix if necessary and it will unscrew.

    More to the truth, they can’t be bothered.
