Hi Dan, Nice Job ✅, Quaranteed this turned out to be a time consuming job just like it did on ours. It is very worthwhile to do the complete stripdown vs Masking of Areas which in the end does not always please. Those Ronal Alloys look very nice and with the 5 Spokes you have plenty of room to get your hands behind for cleaning. Is the Red “Flash” an Inserted part ?
Dan keep at it - Dave 😉🙏

Hi Dave, thank you. Yes the red part is an alloy insert, but I have no idea how they managed to put that part together the rim 🤔

Dan, here you go. What can we do without the good old “Double Sided Sticky Tape”. I see color options are available also - Dave 😁

Hi guys...I'm going to clean and protect the engine bay before winter comes, I'm not going to use the pressure washer, just the hose on a mist setting with lots of APC and soft brushes.

I'm going to cover the Alternator and the ECU, I know where the Alternator is, but can anyone please tell me the position of the ECU on the 1.5 AdBlue engine?

Thanks in advance 👍

ECU should be next to the battery.
