    Used Auto Glym vinyl and rubber care before now, according to them you can leave the stuff to dry without buffing or wiping for a shinier finish.
    Not tried it myself, normally buff for a more matt appearance.

    Your bay looks very nice btw :Niceone:

    EDIT: Here are the official instructions for clarity: https://www.autoglym.com/vinyl-rubber-care

    Valve saver fluid bottle @Harvey. If you look up near the bulkhead passenger side you will see the LPG conversion, hence the reason the manifold cover does not sit flush owing to the injectors and pipes having to go under the cover.

    Saves me a fortune with the miles I do. 140 mile round trip to work using petrol costs me £25.00 ish but on LPG I can get the same journey for around £11.00. 700 miles for work per week plus any mileage supporting my football team around the country, I'm averaging 1000 miles per week and when I can make fuel savings like this it is a bit of a no-brainer.
