gave the daily newbie a bit of love; nice little oil change and new oil filter today..

did the gearbox oil back in Feb, as found it was losing a fair bit.. turned out the drainplug was only finger-tight ...

needs a proper clean and detail, and then attention to respraying the wheels due to some kerbrash and wear from the winter.

Refurbished the wheels last week after work into the early hours over 3 nights

They were badly chipped, kerbed and corroded






all rubbed back by hand with wet n dry 120, 320, 400, 800. then 4in1 etch/high build primer x4 coats








then next night, 1200 grit wet n dry and dust coated and and then x4 layers of base coat (metallic toyota bronze)





then after last base coat had flashed off applied 4 coats of wheel lacquer





job done, pretty happy with it, there are a few blemishes etc. but ok for a 60 rattle can job.

Bought an 56 plate Audi A4 Avant S-line 2ltr tdi to fit all the kids crap in and the dog in the boot.
Going to leave it stock, just do a full service on it, sort a couple of bits out,

Main focus back on the bay..

Will commence work on it this Sat...
Full service.. Rear bumper off to fix rear parking sensors (x2 duff), check removable tow bar (never fitted).. Vagcom scan required as need to check plugs ..
Wheels are a bit curbed but fixable in the future.
Discovered suspension is adjustable... Can go down more Wink
Weather dependant will wash, clay, Polish, and seal then wax. And full valet needed.

Then run it for a while, to check all ok before popping to Wagenworx.
