Hey mate, no it's not those ones. Ordered from http://www.ecotileflooring.com not sure what the JTF ones are made of (seen a lot of foam based stuff) these were £35 for 4 tiles.

Evening all, another meaningful update finally.

I've spent this afternoon removing the GTi trim pieces from the passenger side of the car. Took out the red stripes in order to clean all the pieces fully. Used the same method as I did on the front bumper and it's made a huge difference. The panel behind the kit pieces was also filthy.

Before


After the first piece was done


Here's how bad things looked behind the trim


Soon sorted that




All done






Rear bumper needs tackling


Ive also managed to remove the dash now so I've started cleaning that up too, stripped everything down to each individual piece again. Here's the switch console piece after I'd reassembled it, quite like the finish :-)


And that'll do for tonight's update.

Garage floor is looking good, making working on the car so much nicer than rolling around & kneeling on concrete. Still some more to buy until it's finished but I can get on with the car again in the meantime :-)

Evening all, had another productive day on the 309 today. After doing the passenger side trim panels last week the state of the rear bumper looks awful in comparison.

So what follows has taken me well in excess of 8 hours to achieve today but I was determined. Rear bumper taken off revealed this...







Under all the muck the passenger side seems pretty good. I havnt made it round to the drivers side yet but I know the rear bumper mount on that side is knackered and some welding will be required, it's a common rust area though and I knew that bit needed doing when I bought it so it's no surprise.

Anyway cleaned up the passenger side & I'm pleased with the result







Nice new rear light cluster too



Then moved on to the rear bumper......

That is crazy!! I honestly can't believe the difference in the plastics once you have finished with them! Such good work although I can't help thinking you must have shares in bluroll or something!! lol.

The work on that rear bumper is the best you have done yet, it would pass for brand new.

Coming along nicely!

How do you get your bumpers to look that spotless?! .. What's the secret?

Cheers guys :-) I am very pleased with it. The bumper does have a few small scuffs and light scratches still but they don't look half as noticeable now I've spent some time on it and got it as good as it can possibly get

Stage 1 - clean them with Autosmart Tardis and work it in with a toothbrush. I've gone over every inch of it until it's as clean as possible. That's the time consuming part as I've literally cleaned it to death until no residue is noticeable on the baby wipes used for wiping down
Stage 2 - heat gun used to go over the plastic, almost immediately the natural pigment returns to the surface and it's back to its true colour. In theory this should only need to be done once to give it a 'fresh start' regular care after that will keep it tip top.
Stage 3 - whilst the plastic is still warm apply Auto Glym Vinyl & rubber care. The bumper will absorb the product well and the moisture that's lost over the years whilst it's fading in the sun is replenished a bit.
Stage 4 - when cool apply a second cost of AG vinyl & rubber care
Stage 5 (optional) apply AG bumper gel as a nice top coat.

And that's it. It took hours for me to clean the bumper at stage 1. So much moss stains, tar and general road crap to remove. Worth every minute spent though :-)

Cheers Deano. It's on 90,000 miles. Not bad really for a G reg, works out at 3,600 per year average

Flooring is from http://www.ecotileflooring.com very pleased with that too. Went for the 7mm thick option. It's quite pricey though.
