4-6 weeks ? When I looked at those Merc racing Supercharger kits in America the wait time was 6-10 weeks I got impatient and got one here lol

Speaking of credit acceptance since I moved I can't get credit anywhere! Despite being on the electrol roll and having an excellent rating on Experian I dunno what they judge standard against!

Glad you got that spoiler though Diddles you really wanted it too

Cheers mate!
Yeah I'm proper impatient too, I'm hoping they have some sitting on the shelf ready to go, the 4-6 weeks is with manufacturing it, so hopefully get it sooner.

It’s because you have just moved, companies like to see stability and long period at a address, electoral list and companies see it will be damage limitation but still effect you unfortunately.

That's a bit to extreme for me 😆 looks like a bumper off an Evo.

I think the spoiler will be the last thing for a bit, I want to wire brush the rust and treat the underside, and maybe look at a respraying some other parts as I have some horrible etchings in my lacquer. The roof and my original bonnet being the worst, that's why I have a carbon bonnet on, also above the doors. 😡 Looks like maybe the previous owner left sap on it or water spots that's etched the lacquer, it's my main issue with the car!

We’ll see how the garage sprays your spoiler and then if it’s up to scratch, pardon the pun, get him to give you a price to rectify the paint work where your not happy or a full respray. I know if you put the spoiler on it will stress you out against the rest of the cars paint.

Its been stressing me out since I noticed it, over a year now. 😭 I didn't notice it at first but I think the previous owner didn't clean it as much as I would, a few bird poo etchings and these weird marks mainly on the flat surfaces and above the doors, so what ever it caused it came down from above. You can't really notice the marks when it's out of the sun.

@Hemingway1975 is it not the non return valve for the windscreen washers? Doubtful they'd needed to unclip it to do the valve clearances.

It seems to be attached to all the scuttle tray on the upper part of the pipe, all it does now is fall out, it doesn’t clip no more for some reason. I haven’t messed with it, I didn’t notice it till I went to check the oil level tonight and the pipe is out off it’s clip and just dangling about.
