Still waiting for Sun

Its been a depressing wet summer!!
Should have built a fooking boat!

I have however managed to squeeze in the odd 3 hour slot over the past month when a bit of dry weather popped out and the wife took our toddler to see nanny.

Each time it was possibly a double "Log, email, tweak and try again" session. But we have now got quite a lot ironed out, close to the stage I can safely run the "VE Live AutoTune" function. where it will final tune its self as I drive!!! Cool eh!?

This experience tells me that those Self learning auto tune EFI systems are Bollox. Mine was initially running so rich that it couldn't lean it out that much by its self as it was off the gauge. You need to get the basic settings right for things to auto adjust.

Anyway, Back to Goggling Sun dances & chants....

Bit of a polish

Now its all back together, it needs a good clean and polish.

Using the green window cleaner and a microfibre cloth, I was able to clean the whole body streak free as it was raining outside. I found this quicker and better than water as it wasn't muddy nor really dusty. But it had finger marks and general indoor dust.

I then bought some Autoglym stuff at Halfords as they must have had a "shit summer lets get rid" sale on cleaning and polishing stuff.

 Using Super Resin Polish, then Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection did this!

Extra Gloss Protection left on over night.
buffed off....
Having used Zymol (Lovely banana smell to it) and having used some Carnauba waxes, I have found the Autoglym stuff to be a fair bit better. Lot less white residue and powdering to chase about. Not saying its miracle stuff just that there was a slight improvement with Autoglym.
