Used the Autoglym kit. Cleaner and proofer. The proofer leaves streaks that take a bit of shifting on the windows and paintwork if you don't clean it off pdq. It does say to mask off these areas in the instructions though. The top wasn't that dirty but having just got the car I wanted to proof it before the bad weather starts. Seems ok but obviously too soon to tell.

I've found that its beneficial to have a bucket of suds and a microfiber towel on stand-by when using the AG kit for this exact reason. Any overspray of the protector can then be dealt with immediately. Actually, I just re-proofed mine the other day and now the water beads as if it were on waxed paintwork......I think the AG kit is a very good piece of kit.

Some pics of when I first used the AG stuff: http://forums.mg-rover.org/mgf-mgtf...2/couple-snaps-after-wash-693281/#post7259985

Well, not so much as what I did Today but what I did on Sunday - little drive down to Stoke (in glorious sunshine with the top down all day) to pick up a lovely set of Mike Satur Mk1 Chrome roll hoops along with a set of mud flaps! - hoops look amazing once cleaned up - look like new. Still in two minds about the flaps and wether to utilise them or not....still, they got a good clean up as well.

Contacted Mr Satur yesterday and he kindly agreed to furnish me - for a reasonable price - with a cutting template and speaker mounting brackets as the car they came from was speakerless in the T-bar.....as soon as they arrive and as soon as I get some spare time and nice weather, they'll be getting installed with pics to follow. All the other fixings are stashed in the garage, ready to be abused.....

Not bad for £125 :grin:

It wasn't exactly today but I put my Leon front splitter on a couple of weeks ago, really easy to fit and since I used a right angle chuck attachment and a stubby driver, I managed to fit it without taking off the bumper or even using axle stands!
I never got around from taking a picture of it, but now I have one from last weekends Topless around the Peak District run.

Nice buy, Stevie, if you are looking to get rid of the mudflaps, I am interested, been looking for a full set at the right price. Give us a shout if you are looking to part ways with 'em!

Thanks Dave. Duly noted on the mud flaps.....I'm 60-40 in favour of fitting them at the mo, but if I have a change of heart you'll be the first to know :wink:

Cheers mate, just noticed yours is a F, I have a TF so not sure that they still fit.
Anyone advise?


Sundance
Funny you should mention that because I was Googling last night and found that they are not an exact fit for the TF - I did read this which suggest the same:

mgtf mudflaps do not fit ! - The MGF Register Forums

I'm sure that I've seen 'em on a TF though......yep. CJJ's, but he does say that they are specific ones for the TF which aren't my kind.....

Maybe they will look better on your car then Stevie!
Put the piccies up when you have the roll hoops and/or flaps on!


Sundance
Yeah, I think I will fit 'em - had a look at them Today and they do look quite nice and it will cut down on paint damage. I'll post up some pics of both when I've got around to sorting them out.....still gotta fit my newly acquired colour coded door handles an leccy mirrors along with the wiring loom I sourced from a donor car at my local scrappie.......

So many things to do, so little time.....good luck with your hunt for TF flaps mate!!

Whom is this Leon fellow you speak of, he who makes splitters for the F pray tell?!

Sorry, been watching Quest for the Holy Grail.

Well, almost 12 months to the day and yet ANOTHER numpty decided to crash into me.....I must have really bad luck in September :frown:

http://forums.mg-rover.org/mgf-mgtf...y-first-part-577689/index120.html#post8099825

Not so much as to what I've done, but what some numpty taxi driver driving a Peugot Partner did today to my MG - smacked her up the rear end whilst I was stationary at a roundabout whilst waiting my turn to get on it in the usual 'give way to the right' fashion.....felt the impact and my heart immediately sank. Got out to inspect the damage and upon initial inspection, not too bad......rear passenger side of the bumper has been pushed in, bumper in tact, scuff marks and some flaked paint. Not sure if the crash cans would have been damaged but at least I'm insured (and so is the bloody taxi driver) so it should (fingers crossed) get sorted out.

My worst nightmare is that a respray of the bumper will not match - anyone with any experience of repairs care to comment or advise me?
Not only was it bad enough to be crashed into again, as luck would have it the driver in question managed to damage the rear bumper all over again after it was fixed and resprayed after the above incident.

I just can't believe it.....I'd machine polished the car to almost perfection over the last few weeks and she was looking beautiful. This prang isn't massive - some old lady in an Insignia decided to reverse into my stationary car in a car park.....it was only my car and hers in the entire car park yet she still managed to reverse smack into my passenger rear quarter panel and bumper and mess the paintwork up very nicely.

Next year, I'm staying indoors in September.............

I am so sorry, but statistically you are now free of new accidents. Usualy when one happens, second one happens in some time, and then nothing.

I know this is not confort for you, but if you take it as it had to happen, and now on you can enjoy your car it might be easier...
