    Well after looking at some of the pictures on here i felt shamed into trying to freshen up my bay...
    Remember the car is used every day without fail so it isnt a show car...

    It's not just under the hood that appears to look mint.

    My front bumper has many stone chips and I would love to have that mirror finish.

    Thanks people.
    The pipe that is on top of the TB..
    I will measure it later when i go to the car.
    The original pipe had cracks and splits starting in it... so rather than wait for another boost related leak i sorted it in the way you can see.

    I actualy used a detailing brush i normaly use on my wheels and a diluted gold class shampoo in a megs spray bottle.
    Worked from the back of the bay towards the front. Filled another bottle and rinsed . i wanted to try and avoid over wetting . i then cut a cheap sponge into 3 and wiped things over .
    I used megs tyre gel very sparingly on a sponge to dress the black areas and then the silicones too. by not over aplying i hope too much dust will not stick everywhere.
    Fingers crossed
