Cheers

Well, it chucked it down all day today so I did 3 hours of scrubbing in it.

It looks better, but there appears to have been a load of DFI oil spilled not only in the console but in a jockey seat some time ago and it's solidified into the deck pattern. The only thing that'll touch it is solvents, so I had to stop as the solvents were getting too diluted by the rain.

Before and after pics. I think I've only got the easy bit of the cleaning out of the way so far...

Quite well actually-certainly no need to change car.

I've put a 21" Lazer II on there as the original prop was obviously underpropped.
Perhaps it was 78KPH thats 43 Knots which may be more realistic with underpropping? Find out soon enough

Quite possible-the seller almost certainly didn't know how to use the finer features of the GPS.

I have driven a 7.8 with a 250 etec and managed about 48 knots.

Todays pic-I started to fit the screen then noticed a scratch so polished it out. Then I saw another. 2 hours later I stopped as I was getting a bit silly.
