Took the LS out doors for a spring clean  do not use any kind of paint rejuvenation just Holts triplewax wash and rinse .

Gave the inner mudguards a swill but I am fortunate that a breeze blows through the garage all the time and it is very dry so no moisture accumulates when the car is stood.

Out of interest Phil, why did you block the reg just for a photo of your (any car

)? I've seen cars for sale that do it but the reg is normaly visible to anyone & everyone 60 mins per hour for (20 years) if on/in a public place, so why block your reg number plate? I suppose another way of putting it is, wht on earth do you think is going to happen to your car if someone sees the reg number?

Such a majestic car. The best-looking LS in my opinion, followed by the LS460.

I tried messing around with the photo of my Car but made such a mess of trying to cover the plate that I didn't bother in the end.

No one has asked what the number is about. 

However, when the Car broke down and was trailered part way into Medway Service centre, a Gent passing by shouted that the Plate was worth more than the Car!  There are I believe over sixty possible users of the three inititals. Its an Isle of wight registration, so I'm told. Beyond that there's nothing more to tell. 

Anyone selling or hoping to sell their Car who covers the plate is immediately indicating they don't want you looking at the MOT history. Well they do, to me.

Let it lie, Alan.

We don't on this forum as a rule bait each other!  Could this be something I've noticed about your Postings, not that you are baiting me?

Moderator remove if you think I am Out of Order with this comment.

BTW Mods why when I write are my words underlined in red?  Is it your settings or my computer??

no, but in the future if somebody was to, then they'd have this info straight away. if you cannot see the risks and why people choose not to take them, that's your problem.

 

Stuart underline red words is spell checker, do they go away when you spell the word correctly (or finish typing it)>

Thats the thing - they appear when the word is spelt correctly. Every word here is underlined with a fuzzy line not a straight line! Strange.

I think some bad guys just clone stolen cars to make them look genuine ................ and the number plate is useful for that 

I remember many years ago i saw one of my then garage ( Brookland Kent )  stock cars being driven past my mum's house in Herne Bay when it shouldn't have been

Phoned my business partner at the garage to ask what the f--- was going on and he told me that OUR car was safely in the line-up of cars for sale !

some one had cloned our genuine car .......... so we quickly got rid of it at the auction to save any future troubles with that car

It does look great, can you tell me what the colour is please? I’ve decided to look for a gold or silver MK3 or Mk4 as I prefer those colours and yours looks silver on the photos.

Hi Paul

Its green coded as 6P7 goes under different names worldwide, did not care for it when I bought the car as my previous Mark 1 was maroon but it as grown on me.

Hi Paul

only downside of gold is it fades and most of the 400s would suffer from this.

Silver on the other hand looks great, easy to keep clean and is a colour which does not age
