    Out of interest and you may have said, but how many hours have you spent detailing your car? (just curious)


    Oh and it must have added a few grand to the value!

    Well I'm a fastidious owner anyway and the car tends to get cleaned before I put it away.

    I'm not sure it is all to do with detailing tbh. I spend a few hours getting the car really clean for the event. I think it's got more to do with originality as I've spent a lot of time and effort over the last 18 months sorting out the engine bay, roof, centre console, wheels and grills etc. Also fixed a few rust areas around doors and wheel arches so it's in good shape now.

    My exhaust is non standard tho so would've lost some points for that.

    All in all my car doesn't hold a candle to some of the cars in the other classes. Even if (in my opinion) some looked over prepped - bright chrome borranis on a SWB are a bit too 'pebble beach' for me 😎

    The front compartment absorbed about 4 hours of my life. I reckon the judges spent no more than 30 seconds giving it the once over.

    Wipers were a bit scuffed so they got a fresh coat of satin black.

    Swapped wheel bolts for fresh ones. I'd bought these over a year ago and never around to fitting them.

    Some final prep on arrival (actually another 5 hour shift) and time for a beer or several.

    After putting in so much effort, it's hard to listen to the judges comments so I kept a safe distance haha.

    A class win means I cannot enter the car next year, which to be honest is a relief. I'm a bit fed up with keeping the car so neat and would like to put some miles on it by doing a European trip or two.

    You never know I might even post some pics of a filthy 328 one day. The thought of it is surprisingly appealing. Cheers

    Congrats on the win and great thread.

    So much of what you've done to your car translates over to other models, particularly those close to her in age, that it's a great resource for the rest of us. Very much appreciate you taking the time to post the work up
