The Clean Up OperationNaturally when you have a lot of 'fun' there's always plenty of cleaning up to do afterwards... Having spent a day at the Dunsfold Supercar Event and having picked up a stray cone with the front end there was lots of cleaning to do! As I'm such a polisher, and the 'cone collection' was at low speed there wasn't any damage to the car apart from a scuff.
|Cone collection wasn't part of the agenda!|
|Scuff marks on near-side front of car due to cone abuse :-)|
|AutoGlym Intensive Tar Remover worked a treat at removing cone scuffs|
|Used and abused AVON CR500 rear tyres|
It doesn't take a miracle worker to figure out where all the rubber from the rear tyres went... Plenty on the tarmac, some up in smoke and a sh1t load underneath my arches...
|Underneath rear arches were caked in molten tyre rubber|
Seeing as the tyre rubber was in some hard to reach areas, around the watts link arms, suspension springs and so on, I thought it best to remove both wheel arches to get good access. The picture below shows the amount of muck I had to deal with.
|Rear wheel arches removed revealed just how much muck required cleaning off!|
|Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner getting to work on all the grime and rubber|
|All dirt, grime, rubber and tar removed and looking pretty much like new again.|
|Underside and edges of arches also needed a thorough clean.|
|Wheel arches refitted and everything looking in great order again.|
|All ready to go for some more track action at Donington Park tomorrow!|
Naturally all fluids, pressures, suspension settings and bolts have been given a check over and I'm looking forward to more track action tomorrow! Awesome.
