Forester STI – New Fog Light Cover STI Decals

The left fog light cover could do with a new decal and a little freshen up with a layer of lacquer so I carefully measured the dimensions of the original STI decals and had an eBay seller make me some exact copies of them for me. I wanted to make sure I placed the new […]

Forester STI – Cavity Wax and Full Underside Wax Treatment

With the Dinitrol Super Protect 447 applied, next I could deal with protecting the body shell and subframe cavities. I could also apply a layer of wax to the whole underside. There wouldn’t be much point in me putting in all this time and effort to protect the outer surfaces of the body shell and […]

Forester STI – Dinitrol Protect Super 447 Anti Stonechip Coating

So the underside of the Forester has been cleaned, stripped of bits of trim and some suspension and anything I didn’t remove that I don’t want to spray has been masked.

MX5 – DIY Wheel Alignment

(First posted on MX5 nutz forum in October 2015) Next thing on the list was 4 wheel alignment.  I like doing things myself if I can so I do it the old school way with string, well fishing line actually.  Having slightly stretched tyres and a bit of poke on the wheels makes this much […]

Evo VI – Engine Bay Clean

(First posted on MLR forum in July 2016) Firstly I gave the exterior a clean with my new birthday present. Then, for some reason I decided to look under the doors.  Yes, I cleaned the underneath of the doors. Now it’s time to clean the engine bay! Filth. There’s white paint behind there Getting there […]
