    A question for any electricians in the house!

    Have you checked the inside of the switch for any signs of shorting ? Or a dead mouse ?

    Bodywork for sale seiw

    just the new white rear aches still available £180 for the pair , less than 40 % of the new price
  4. In short you still have a duff floor that's going to be more costly to relay 2nd time round than if the work was never done . So your being rather generous but having a free floor for a few years helps compensate
  5. New nose cone and bonnet and swap the rear arches to a contrasting colour could be one low cost option as your parts will sell to recover some costs . Or look out for a unbuilt kit to buy and do a body swap and sell the components after, I have just done a full body swap for arround £1200 including fixings which compaired to a repaint or wrap is good value .

    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 ?
