Cleaned her and topped up her wax.

Couldn't resist going for a quick spin and a nice walk. When i got back i couldn't help but think those wheels are just part of her personality :rolleyes: Don't think i'll bother with changing them, just need to loose that wee gap in those arches in the spring (after the snow :wink:) and i think she's sorted :laugh:

monzas are bit like marmite and divide opinion

had all the bits taken off mine and engine flashed back to stock for its service and then Revo Stage 1 linear throttle goes back on

nice to drive it with stock power and the handling mods as you have to work those revs and gears to get the best out of it all be it tail pipes look like pea shooters

I like the Monza shadows. In fact I prefer the similarish 18" Austins on the Mk7 over the excessively elaborate 19" options. Keep it simple, that's always been the VW way.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

1st full wash, clay, polish and wax. wasn't too impressed with the finish of the NXT Tech Wax 2.0, maybe didn't leave it long enough as finish seemed a bit patchy. spent best pat of 5 hours and by the time i finished it was getting dark and started to rain, been crap today too so no pics, will do it again in a few weeks now that i kinda know what im doing and then post some pics. nice relaxing day cleaning the beast.

ONR with 2 buckets, fine clay with ONR lube, Meg Ultimate Compound, NXT Tech Wax 2.0.

Always find NXT wax to be patchy. May be using too much product but I now use and much prefer Victorias Concours Wax!

Still odd clunk from passenger door catch and hatch but alot better.
