Mainly superficial and relatively easily tidied.

The other side can't be as bad...

  • 320touring changed the title to Normal Service has been resumed.. Elgrand cleaning and FIRST FTP 30/01/23

Decided to have a swing at cleaning the front of this today..

To say it is manky is an understatement

The natty OEM overmats have seen a dug or twa..

I reckon a stiff brush then a wetvac should sort that.

Drivers footwell is hoachin.

I decided to focus on stuff I could scrub.

The steering wheel wasn't too bad

But the auto box selector was howfin

The stalks were bowfin too

IMG_20230130_133646895.thumb.jpg.2bd76197059050b2d78c25eda23f9799.jpg

But came up well with some wipes.

I removed all the damp parking tickets from the base of the windscreen and cleaned all the windows

On the outside the OEM nissan wind deflectors are forming gardens, with the door handles not far behind.

There were also a couple of odd finds ..

Other than that. It's come up well, but I think the big work will be in the soft furnishings - I expect the wet vac will earn it's keep.

After meeting @Supernautoff, I got to snap a Rexton pic

Later, on the way home I stopped to check on the 320, and the van wouldn't start after. It was completely dead ..

I waggled the battery terminals and it fired right into life. Another thing to fix then..
