Easiest DIY job with great results

Hi Chaps
After getting my baby back from the garage where it had its dry starter motor swapped out for a new one, it needed a wash as she had a few greasy finger prints.

I decided to pop out the side repeater and see what it was like behind them....

... it was bad. I cleaned up then popped the repeaters back on and the look 100 times better.

The dark shadow line was obviously the dirt as they look a lot more orange now

Its going to be the first thing I look at when I see another boxster now lol

You were half way to removing the front bumper ! Good to clen out the debris that corrodes and obstructs the radiators and condenser.
Great color btw !
