After the accident with the active foam all is back in the pumy... Long story short,

I just got 4L of active foam free running in the boot... hat to remove everything from the car, washed it and back in... on the end of summer another round of washing...

Well today washed the car... got some turtle wax with stonechip filling... shades of grey... to eliminate stonechip marks... it won't eliminate a damn usual scratch... chipstone... lol... anyway waxed the hell out of it :D

i have no ideea... after i bought Pumy the AC theoretically was good... didn't check as, come on... outside -20 :)) i don't need cool air...

anyway two days ago they checked it and said that some connectors with the sensor or the clutch engage wiring or something like that... well they chopped the connectors and rewired them... also i had my engine washed... and when the guy removed the lower cable... have no idea which is that... and left it hanging, a little (200ml) water came out from the tube in which the cables were resting :D

they said they should do a difference with cooling agent (top it up)... but yet when i kick in the AC it gived 7.5°C... for me it's fine... chill as fack :D

13177702_800690310074857_4585131539340467070_n.jpg
The rear left drum was a bit locked, but now it's running fine... they said a pad was miss aligned, also pads are perfect.

Also I am over with some headlight repair:

yea but the turtle wax was applied bit heavy :D and with a polish machine... came out wonderful as long as you don't touch the chassis... cause this will make the wax/polish from turtlewax to get drip... or what... yesterday i full wiped the car with a cloth to get off the marks...

today i touched the bodyside and :D marks again... i kinda hate turtlewax now :))

So today bit of change :)

As i posted here and there, on longer journeys my passenger (gilrfriend, soon to be mother of my copies, or how would you like to call her), got always flooded.

Now the guys told me to just clear the tube... i was... jeezz i just blown in it, all fine... next days, same thing... ok today was like... come on, we pull up the carpet... and we pry open that damn clips holding on to the airbox... got the tube out after 1 hour of finger breaking procedure...

here... that black flock shows around 70% of what was actually inside of it...
13528646_824286911048530_3342057486276590771_o.jpg
now she is running fine... A/C won't disengage although... (it does disengage when AC is off) but won't cycle...

Hi Steve
Funnily enough I posted on the removal of the heater drain from the heater box. The best way I found is to spin the tangs of the clip until they are facing the front of the car, then using 90 degree bend circlip pliers go over the rubber tube from the rear squeeze the pliers shut on the tangs and then you can pull the clip down the pipe. When replacing use a jubilee clip :-)
