    Well decided to give the car a good coat of wax before the onslaught of winter. Got all the way round the car and finished at the rear end , decided to take spare off to do behind, as noticed a lot of muck and algae behind . Took quite a while to do just the rear door section . The spare wasnt much cop tyre wise but just about legal !.
    Then came the palaver of remounting the spare , what a pain ! standing up was no good as couldn't see the bolt holes, so ended up kneeling and lifting into position, bit of a killer on the arms and back . Noticed before i had put it back on a previous owner had put quite a dent in the rear door obviously remounting the spare !. Not so noticeable though with the tyre and cover on though. wouldn't like to do this job in the dark or for that matter anytime soon !

    Only need to worry about the spare tyre being legal depth when its actually in use. It can be as bald as anything any other time.

    Good job on the clean - most people only clean what they can see and not what is hidden behind other things.

    Pictures?
