I have seen some of the stuff that this chap that is doing the cleaning for Steve and it is AWESOME!!!!!
He showed me the cylinder heads from a V12 E Type Jag engine that he had done and OMG they were fantastic.
I would say getting something like this done is the difference between putting together a car that is 'pretty clean' and one that will stop people in their tracks.
It brings up stuff in my opinion probably better that the day it was manufactured. It's all about going that extra step....

What's so special about vapour blasting Question Question Question

When I stripped and rebuilt my engine, I used my pressure washer and gunk to clean it up, and dried it off with an airline, and it goes OK.


I used hot water ,a dremmel and plenty of washing tablets on my last engine build ...and believe me it was spotless on the inside ...but the outside of the case was impossible to clean properly ....you'd never have known as i had it done in two pack paint same as the bodywork ...

this time (as scoops states) after seeing the effect of vapourblasting I got to give it a go ....it does look spot on ..when i get the time I'll drop off the parts and when I get them back you can see for yourself Cool

slight play in steering now found and fixed ,both window winders are smooth and quiet ,clock is now finally working at keeping good time (very rare for a KG clock) ,oil changed (was minging and not much came out Embarassed ) ,made a template for some carpet to go under the bonnet,ordered said carpet ,

need to adjust float levels in the carbs ,fit the new headlamp relay when it comes ,and glue in some carpet .......

I almost don't want to ask you for the entrance fee, but thats what its alll about, my Father in Law had leukemia & the unit at Exeter that we're raising money for was superb. Thanks for agreeing to come, if you can email me a picture of your Ghia with registration number & how many people will be inside for wrist bands at bobburrows68@googlemail.com & thank you so much again, it'll be one cool line up
