    Default Started to clean underneath rear wheel arches

    Not had much time in the last year to do much to the 260 but made another attempt today. Long way to go yet though

    Just been doing the same arch this afternoon to catch the early signs of tin worm. I was thinking of removing the steel cover over the cables to clean out any crud and get it painted but the bolts are not looking too pretty so didn't do it in the end. I did give all the calipers another coat of red though while I had the wheels off.
