Having taken some advice from Mike Humble about how he got his engine bay looking so clean I'm considering buying some Traffic Film Remover and some hydrochloric acid from Jenny Chem.

Unless anybody has some in their garage and can get it to the NEC for the show or to somebody who is going to the show?

We might also need a replacement boot carpet in ash grey and boot board if anybody has either of them spare...

Will post some more pics shortly :)

OK, I have ordered tickets based on the following:

Friday: John, Alan, Simon, +1

Saturday: Jeremy, Duncan, Simon, +1, Nigel, me, Kevin M

Sunday: John, Jeremy, Howard, me, Simon, +1

That leaves us with one spare for Sunday as things stand at the moment, although we are in the process of trying to get a few extra passes from the organisers :)
