    Started the spring clean..Now the weather is started to get a little better it's time i started to pay some attention to my own car other than other peoples (customers) so i started with the wheel arches and brake caliper's at the rear.

    In need of some TLC.

    Inner Arch Gaurd's Removed And Cleaned With APC & Power Washed.

    I then used APC to clean the exposed arch area, i couldn't believe how much dirt was behind the Arch gaurds.

    Nice and Clean.

    Painted the calipers and arm's with a little Satin Black.

    You are 100% correct Fran. I'm only droping the front an extra 15mm, total drop on the front will be 45mm (fingers crossed). The rears i will keep on adjust over the coming months.

    I've just re-done my arches, only did them a few months back - can't believe how much cr*p actually gets stuck in there! Always gives good results though!
