apart from they don't fit on the locking wheel bolt on each wheel
so 80% coverage
Yeah, the locking covers are rocking horse shit.  I have some black PLA, maybe I should print some ;D

But does anyone still use lockers on their Omegas?
Goodyear rubber is over 100 quid a corner and my wheels are mint , so I do  :-[

Luckily my Rovellos or whatever rubbish I've got on there is about the same price for all four  ;D

Thanks for all the input guys.

I saw the chrome ones but they're not for me personally. I just want stock original. Sad I know  ;D

I think these are the right ones...

The only car that goes through an automatic carwash here is the Battlebus.  Partly because I can't reach the roof easily, but mostly because I couldn't give two hoots about the damn thing ;D

Friday's trip to the BP carwash cost me another rear wiper arm though ::)

I don't like the bp one. The bristles are too hard on the big rollers. The shell ones are soft and I don't worry about scratches. And for whatever reason the shell one is the only one I've ever found to properly clean all the wheels. Just my opinion  :y

Cheers Nick 👍👍👍

Here's a random question.... what colour were they when they came off the production line? Mine seem like faded grey. But most vauxhalls I see have black....

Traffic film remover. Apparently makes all rubbers and plastics fade

Hi guys.

Ok, so I want to spruce up my wheel bolt covers. I was going to just buy a new set but I got berated from taxi al last time for being lazy  ;D so is there a way to spruce them up?

They've gone really dull. Presumably due to the TFR from the polish cleaners.

Any ideas...

TIA boyos  :y

Oh forgot to add, I have Autoglym super resin polish too. (I'm not advertising for them by the way lol) and every so often (not sure how often is good  :-\) I cover the car. Let it sit for 10 minutes. And buff off. Holy shite the old girl looks good  :-* :y

I've tried to clean my car myself but I just can't do it!!!! I hate it with a passion. However I do like a clean car all the time so I have found what I think to be a decent compromise....

Shell unlimited car wash for 12 a month.

Bring car home or wherever and a 2-minute chamois to get off water droplets. Autoglym tyre gel on the wheels and it looks sweet.

As for the interior I keep Autoglym interior shampoo and a microfibre cloth in the car and I clean the inside as often as possible.

HTH  :y

That senior race was awesome. First year watching it and I'm gutted it's finished. 

My mate took me to BSB his year at donnington. Bloody awesome. Though I'll never ride a bike (nor want to) it's great to watch.

Lol it was all good cheers.

As said there was like a coating of god knows what that just rubbed / scratches off. Grim.

Ok then kids. I pride myself on holding my hand up when I'm wrong. And today is no exception.
You all told me to clean it when I thought it was toast. Got it off the door and as suggested got some Autoglym interior jizm on it. And holy shit it's come back to life. It's clear that there's some nasty sticky coating that's absorbed all the crud and underneath it's as good as new. Finished off with a good wipe and a dash of trim restore and it's almost brand new.

I can't post images since photo buckets demise but if someone pm's me their email address I'll send the before and after pics if someone would care to upload them.

As always you are all legends. Thank you 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄

Sorry must have missed them in the midst of TB dissing my motors credentials 😂😂😂

14
Lol so what's a bear to use?

15
Not yet, no. I'm considering it though just to shut you up 😂

Nail varnish remover as per Omegods suggestion?
