That is a flocking nice centre console mate, very tidy. Best to do the clutch before mapping anyway. smile

that centre console looks quite smart, certainly better than the standard plastic rubber(then again anything is)

Hi Phil,

Good to meet you again at Joe's new place, still can't believe how close he's opened up shop!

Glad the clutch change went well, great spec and tidy looking car - shame when I got there it was 6ft up in the air.

Might have to make the trip to Halfords for one of those covers too, are they just their bog-standard outdoors cover?

Good to see you again too. Yes, they are the Halfords own make car covers, size medium. Pull them off months later and the car is just as you left it.

Obviously I clean and wax the car each time before covering. 3 strap ties underneath the car keep it all in place. Even during those high winds the UK recently suffered (I was not here, but the wife told me no problem).

Looking good patch - you have to keep crono polished to be at its best or its look too flat IMO thumb

We all know chrono = primer tongue I was merely suggesting an appropriate colour that shines. Now, I'm doing that in the correct thread laugh

Scrubland and you Phil - no-one's near your field of expertise laugh

Is this an LE thing that the pipe from the expansion tank sits in a neat wee hole?

Also where is yo' spongey bits for bonnet resting?

Saw you out in Malvern today (filthy Alfa 156 Sportwagon opposite you at a zebra crossing, top of town).

Looks even better out and about than it does up close, really does stand out from the flock.

Crono could be edging it as my current favourite flavour of Coupe too… maybe.
