Our good friend Sanjay offered to use his expertise
and give DYR a clean and valet.
Sanjay used spray foam, then a wash off,
then he rubbed the paintwork with a clay bar.
After that he foamed the car again, spray polished it, and then we all wiped the car down with clean cloths.
I think I've got that in the right order, but the finished job is spectacular, the clay bar lifts off all the bits stuck to the paintwork, which washing doesn't shift.
You can feel the smoothness of the bodywork compared to untreated areas.
The previous day I had removed the wheels and scrubbed them back and front, Sanjay sprayed the wheels with a product which went pink, and removed all the ground in brake dust. I was impressed with this!
DYR's misfortunes had left it
smeared with oily fingermarks
and covered in dust.
The car's first proper trip, 60 miles to Cheshire and back home, passed
We thought the little car deserved a treat. The final photo is in Lymm,
after the treatment, just catching the
last of the July day's sun.
Steve Cox's range of Lancia Delta diagnostic tools is loosely based on a program called Startrek, which was designed to connect to the Fiat Coupe 16v, (which uses the Integrale Evo2 P8 ECU and ignition system) and the software looked rather like a control panel from Star Trek (hence the name).
Steve's version developed into the software that's available today, it has gone through numerous re-writes and is being enhanced and improved all the time.
We are recent converts to this powerful tool, so click here as we find out more about it.
