I had a nice sunny Sunday afternoon free last weekend, which I decided to use sprucing up the fleet.
The jobs on the list for the Evo were to:
- Hoover out and clean interior – Tidying up the interior was nice and easy though I noticed the suede on the driver’s door car had seen better days so I might need to look at replacing this.
- Refit drivers side wind deflector – Refitting the wind deflector took seconds. I had initially starting removing them as I thought I preferred the look without, but then promptly changed my mind 🙂
- Fit Mitsubishi 3 triangle badge and new Spirit of Competition sticker – The harsh winter of 2010 early 2011, left my decals and badges in a sorry state. The rear Mitsubishi badge had disappeared and my Spirit of Competition sticker on the bonnet had peeled and was missing some letters. I purchased replacements from Mitsubishi and the MLR Shop for a total of £50! To get the competition sticker off I used a hair dryer on low heat and gently warmed it, until the sticker started to peel. You need to take extra care not to damage the paint as it can be quite thin on these aging Evos. I couldn’t get an exact replacement of the small Mitsubishi badge anywhere, the previous one was plain red plastic, instead I had to settle for the one Mitsubishi had at £23, Red with silver edging.
- Sort out passenger door that was incredibly stiff to open – Endless WD40 and opening and closing the door like a madman, soon sorted this
This left the car looking a bit tidier, it just needs a thorough wash and ideally a detail to remove the grime of the past year in all the nooks and crannies.
Recommendations for a good detailer in South Yorks please!
