    Washing/cleaning. Waterless wash?

    I just use a hose but with the tap only turned on a little to reduce the flow then a bucket and sponge with normal car shampoo followed by a quick dry with a microfiber . Then if I feel like it a quick wax or polish . I find for scratches old fashioned t-cut works well .

    Exhaust Acousti-fil stuff

    Can't remember 100% but if the old grey matter is correct it was twice loosely round the perforated tube to allow for expansion but this might be more help https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.textiletechnologies.co.uk/attachments/download/download/%3Fd%3D0%26file%3Dcustom%2Fupload%2FFile-1452689260.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwj6jcfS2drbAhVbF8AKHb1rDKUQFggcMAA&usg=AOvVaw1QtbjztfcssQ8jitKpFTyc

    Paint colour

    Presuming only the bonnet s painted and the rest of the car is in gell coat , in my opinion it will be almost impossible to get the exact colour match due to the difference in what your eyes are actually seeing with gel coat your looking at a more transparent but deeper surface of coating while with paint it's a thinner but more opaque coating . It might be worth trying to get a second hand bonnet but even gel coat changes from batch to batch plus it depends on how the colour has faded . How old is the car ? If it is Quite new you might get a match . But an exact match is also unlikey and what improvement it would be on your current bonnet you would only know when you fit. would you consider some graphics to distract the eye from the difference in shade? And to draw your eye away ?

    kitcardirct rear arches

    kitcardirct rear arches

    So after posting the above I sent one more email and got a response from kitcardirect. They have now pulled the arches of their website and have offered a small refund as a good will gesture . And are continuing to follow it up with the suppier. So i have received some customer service . The wings were posted direct from the manufacturer so I do have some understanding in there predicament . On a plus note I now love how gel coat polishes up and can't wait until all the dirty jobs are over and I can get the car clean. I just whish I had got my original white arches painted locally to get round the lead time . Anyway as the cars going back together quite nicely I am not going to let it spoil all my hard work . A couple more days and then is just a couple of week Waite for my carbon nv aero screen and hopfuly back on the road
