    In the same vain as Adam, I might as well document what I've done to my Copen and the issues I've had.

    From the eBay UK listing - bought for £2000. 53k miles. No mods, and missing parts

    Christmas Day, 2013. The locals in my parents town thought my father was having a mid life crisis, after going to mass / church in ScootyPuff. Bit grimey, after a 250km drive.

    Exhaust had to be replaced. Whilst up on a lift, inspected for rust damage.

    Wind Deflector from Pegaline in Germany. The holes are in the wrong spot and I broke a clip. I am still waiting, after numerous emails, to get a reply from him. Disappointed, considering it was €60

    No underbody waxing done - just the exhaust replaced so far. That's on my to-do list after installing a number of aftermarket accessories

    Went for a drive today, after work, as the weather was good and to see if the new deflector fitted correctly. Here's a snap of the wheels with the silver colour in the back for contrast. Just over 1 week after plasti and calliper paint.

    Yep, it's an off brand plastidip from a company called "CarDipUK". Their plastidip just has more thinners. A 4 pack of aerosol cans cost £30.

    If you check the topic called "wheel pimping" it goes over the steps and tools you need - mainly the cans and a "Can Gun 1". The can gun is an optional extra, but worth it as it saves your hand from getting sore from always being on the spray nozzle.

    I live in Ireland, so I used Parcel Motel for delivery, but I believe they deliver to all over Europe as well - the cost for postage is outrageous!

    Rear driver's side done today. The "weeping" or "tear" is from water, and can be ignored.

    I like working in my underground garage as it is secure, but the darkness is very annoying.

    On a side note, I tried jacking her up on the back tow hook, but my jack (Haldords trolley jack) doesn't go high enough to put stands underneath her. I used a scissor jack that my father got my for Christmas, on the rear side jacking point and just left it there without stands... Was that a bold thing to do?

    Bernhard replaced the wind deflector. This time, it fitted perfectly - so it was just a bad one that I got.

    I did similar to the wheels of a Hyundai I owned a few years back.
    They looked great and I gave them 3 coats of clear lacquer to finish. They didn't really survive the first winter with brake dust embedding itself into the lacquer which was impossible to remove without also removing the paint.
    I would say that when you haven't used a heat source to bake the paint on the wheels then you should wash the wheels at very regular intervals to keep the dust and salt off them.
    Automotive paint suppliers can put two pack paint into aerosols which is harder than cellulose or synthetic paint. It isn't cheap though, but because they mix it on the premises you can choose any colour or finish.
