Thanks

Not sure if its waterproof, but it took a bit of scrubbing to get it off my fingers in the shower so id guess so
Other than that i couldnt think of anything else that was white, easy-ish to apply and possible to do without removing the mudflaps from the car.
Even if it chips/washes off slightly i will just get some more tipp-ex

Well, i had a bit of time on my hands and seeing as the sun was out i decided not to wash the car Only did it yesterday

Instead i set about with a quick refurb of my wiper arms
Before - looking a bit poo




Wipers off -



I had already touched them up with Hammerite, so sanded that off and got rid of the rust that had raised its ugly head -

DOGA


Plastics got some attention too -



Primered up -


Decided to spray them Vauxhall Black, same as corsa and same as the roof rails i sprayed -




Didnt laquer them, decided not to - good move? bad move?
Job done Looks neater if nothing else.






Just hoping ive got the wiper arms back on the right sides Didnt realise one was longer than the other when i took them off

Thats all for today

Not updated in a while, due to having no money not much has happened to my car

But finally the scrappies got a tigra in and albeit minus a scuttle It had the cheeky little coin tray though, so thought it would be a nice little addition to the corsa

So here we go...





Panda approves

Mine is just stuck down with a velco strip - one part adhered to the carpet and the other to the bottom of the tray
Its not as secure as it was in the Tiggy it came out of my god it took some removing.
But it will do for holding my phone

Edit: it only holds my phone while im driving - no point in breaking in thinking it will be there all the time.

Didnt notice tend not to use them since i broke the whole heater bit

The knobs just dont clip on any more and my heater with the speed setting is more of a slide and hope job instead of actually having a dead certain 'click' for 1,2,3,4 Meh, its unique
