Thanks all Still not looking at perfectly pristine as I'd liked but it is a 210k+ mile car now. Come a long way compared to the state the engine bay was in when I first bought the car.

This is how it looked in 2014 when I bought the car:

Have a great show, and take plenty of pics.
Ah that's a shame Andy we were both looking forward to seeing you both there this weekend. Hope your dog feels better soon mate

Does the brace across the engine make much difference?
Where did you get the wheel bolts from?

No due to the bulkhead being so stiff on the car already, I can't say the brace makes any difference. Maybe it would on a track day but not in day to day driving. I only added it as it's shiney

Which bolts? If its the wheel bolts they're just caps off ebay

I'm on cleaning duty today as she's at work, but I'm sure I'll have her working her miyagi wax on wax off tomorrow at the NEC when setting up lol.

Great foresight Rick. One thing I regret with my Lagoon is not taking any photos when I first got her - would be nice to compare then with now.

Was intending to come to the show on Friday, but plans have changed so now hope to make it on Sunday. Can't wait to see all the additions .

Oh, and make sure you take plenty of quick detailer with you, as the one draw back I expect you'll find with your added bling is that visitors to the stand will keep touching the shiny bits! I remember my fuse box cover being permanently covered in fingerprints, no matter how often I cleaned them off!

Have a great time, enjoy the weekend, and take LOTS of photos .

Cliff

Thatís one well presented show car, I particularly like the underbonnet mirrors they show the engine very well. Enjoy your time at the show.

Jeez, I didn't even recognise it was a diesel until you put the 'BEFORE' pics on, Rick! What a difference! You could convincingly tack a 0 off that mileage. BTW, why do you need to disconnect battery power?
