Winter time

So after a final blat with the Essex area team last weekend and falling temperatures it's looking like hibernation time till next Spring. It's been a great 4 months since I picked up the car and we've done 2,200 miles ! First up is a proper clean after last weekend's excursion. I used some Turtle Wax Rapid Ceramic Spray as a refresh on all of the paintwork and chrome, as well as on the wheels. Looks great. I also put a light coat of WD40 on as much of the chassis and under-side as I could get at from axle stands. I'm going to start the engine every week or so, and condition the battery every few weeks. I just disconnect the negative cables from the battery at the moment. Having pumped the tyres up to 30psi and filled the tank up with fuel that's basically it. Following advice from other owners I decided to replace some of the rear wing bolts with nylon ones. The forward five bolts go into rivnuts that can easily corrode over time which makes them very difficult
