I cleaned the dash on the loltus on Sunday.
It now whooshes when I am gaining speed like a turbo when you lift. Its 100% at the front of the car, not the back.
Wonder what I have disturbed?
I have looked at the schematics of the s2 and I think one of the plastic pipes that is on the “heater box” has shifted a bit. I am going to remove the dash top and take a look*
In other news I have on yoko v105 which I have learnt are now OE tyres for the s3 exige base model.
I am curious how much extra grip I might get with a set of AD08R , or I have noticed that yoko now have the AD052 out which is their top of the line tyre..
ooks like I am going to be getting some AD08R faster than planned.
The arse end drivers side has a flatty. Bugger.
Got a company to call tomorrow and Ill get them fitted ASAP.
Service on 22 MAR so a reassuringly expensive month
I am going to paint these two bits I think. Just undone the mounts. Car isn’t going anywhere for a few days..
k, had a spare 30 minutes at lunch so sanded them ( both plastic ) and panel wiped. Waited for the panel wipe to evaporate.
Heated the can gently with a lamp I have and repeat for the plastics.
Painted 3 coats to just before the point of runs and left the lamp near the paint in between every coat.
Left it 5 minutes between each coat.
Brought it inside to dry faster and it stinks. I am so dead when wife Bond comes home.
I’ll let it cure / dry for 3H and then stick in over at 100 deg C For 10 minutes.
Apparently wrinkle paint is a bit of a black art for if it wrinkles or not.
Still wet but looks like it’s forming
100% not in the oven baking while the wife is out ..
