LCJK123's Artic Blue 182



  BMW 328i
Hello everyone I'm Luke and relatively new to the forum.

I thought I would start my own thread on the progress of my little Artic Blue 182.

Small introductions for some of my previous cars I had before the Clio.

Tidied up the seatbelts, they need done again but much nicer than before.

The steering wheel was just as bad so it was done too.

The headlights were pretty bad so i tidied those up too. Ideally need done again when I have more time.

The engine bay needed a tidy up so I done that on Friday.

Then I couldn't stand seeing the battery and didn't want to pay the price of a full battery cover so I made my own on Saturday.

My new detailing kit bag turned up so I can store some of my products in and I'm pretty happy with it. Even has two large strips of Velcro on the bottom so it doesn't slide all over the place in the boot.

Anyway that's it for now. I look forward to sharing some progress of the car as and when I do more.

Two of my brothers are also on here. One has a blue 172 cup and the other has a Blackgold 182 FF. We plan to do our own version of the NC500 at the start of June so I'm sure there will be overloads of pictures from the road trip soon enough.

Thanks for looking.
Luke :)

I don't think the quality of it is good enough for people to want to purchase one. @OssPoop. It's just something I made one night because I was bored.

It looks pretty good though pal. I'll have a go at one myself at some point. Best keep my eyes open at work for some "spare" plate.

So today I took advantage of the nice evening and decided to clean the car.

First off was the wheels and then hit with Blit Hamber Korrosol and sealed afterwards.

After that I done inside the arches. Sadly I didn't realise until I needed it that I'd ran out of Autosmart Tardis Tar and Glue so for the job to be done properly I'll have to restock and do them again. Will be a lot less effort next time though.

I knew behind the taillights were dirty so I sorted that too.

Gave the interior a once over

Whilst the wheels were off I got round to changing my cracked fog light

That's it for now. I plan to tidy up the metal bend on the induction kit and also the AC lines so they look tidier in the bay.

Will be ordering some Gtechniq C4 permanent trim restorer for the black trims on the car, to tidy those up without getting the annoying drips/runs down the paint after it's rained.

Will update again soon with any other progress, thanks again for looking :smile:

Most of today was spent working away on the paintwork on my brothers car.

Some very smart previous cars too btw, that Mk2 Golf especially!

Well not much has changed with the car but I just completed a 780mile road trip all around the west coast of Scotland and all the way around te Isle of Skye also with two of my brothers. Had a great time and the cars never missed a beat.
