Took the 6n for a 60 mile drive today, got filmed driving it & I was interviewed for an upcoming TV series "World's Deadliest Drivers". They'll be using my dashcam footage from both of my accident

Well my car has now gone on its own little travels Next time I'll see her she will be outside our house in the USA

This is you Mark: Changed the oil filter today. Changed the spark plugs today. Topped up the screen wash today: Replaced the rear tyres today: That poor engine is never in the car! Ha ha.

Drove into it. :retard:

Fortunately i was driving a 206 home from the night shift, it's bumper deforming obligingly, and the Polo's paint (and arch trim) seem to have survived - even if it reflects the light slightly differently now the front wing panel's warped.

It'll wear it with pride for years to come, it's only a car, they get battle scars. Still, sleepy time for me..

The inlet tracts are drilled and taps 1/8 BSP I think but as there's only a 3mm wall thickness I used metal set too.

Usually when I fit instrumentation tapins to things like plastic inlet manifolds a bit of metal set usually goes in too, and they survive just fine :)

Was a bit of an afterthought and I don't like them tbh but oh well :)

I use it as a thread lock/sealant also haha, it's awesome stuff! Seems alright still now anyway, and my inlet manifold gets hot!

I might get some base plates made up and knock a couple out. As long as the base plate also fits the 1.3/1.4 too

I tapped the EGR hole in the AFH iron manifold to take a bolt in order to block it off, but the hole was a little big for the tap (M12 i think). So i torqued it only gently and used chemical metal as a threadlock - i got that manifold almost glowing hot and it was fine for many thousands of miles!

Still is, though it's in the loft.

Cleaned it inside and out. Satin blacked my rear number plate plastic handle thing.

Most effective thing is cleaning the underside of bonnet, didnt take a before pic mind.

Yeah i'm too scared to do anything to my polo incase i fuck it up or something because i love it so much!

Even washing it takes great care, never know, water might just leak through the windows seal... and flood the carpets leaving a pool big enough for a child to swim in... or was that the rain?
