Install would be a step back imo! Amp and components should be hidden!

If you want to go crazy euro, paint the top half cream white! Would look amazing!

when is it ever dirty at a show!

i dont want to change much bodywise, it'll end up looking like a jelly mould.

roof lining is an idea though.

do you want me to powdercoat the underneath too

my bonnet gets opened to oil and water it, nothing else, i'm not going to shows to show off my 1.4!

i clean the arch lips and inside of them, thats it.

i drive the car every day, at least 30miles, and it takes a good 6 hours to get to english shows, so considering that, its pretty damn mint at shows.

I just took all my wheels off recently and scrubbed my arches,

not the black plastic liner so much.. the other bit..

After a little bit of work (15-20 mins per corner) they were like new!

the colour of the standard vauxhall seal stuff is a browny green.. strange stuff that is! I don't see the point in wax oilin that.. its so clean and dry you could lick it!!

I would love to get the under side of my car cleaner...

My engine bay aint to bad... could do with it being sprayed mind.. they dont bother laquerin it at the factory so the paint is just really dull!!

But like you, my car gets driven everyday so its hard!

Oh well
