I took off the wheel arch liners to check if the drainage bungs had been removed, but found an unexpected problem. Lots of mud! There is some minor surface corrosion, so I think its been found in time. Look at the state of the inter-coolers; pretty blocked. The front wing corners seem to be a mud trap as well, but as its plastic its just an annoyance.

It took me hours cleaning the mud out and after all of that I realised that I'd still forgotten to check the drainage bungs Sad I'll do it when I rust convert and under seal the arches.

After lots of cleaning ! I know this is minor stuff, time consuming though and I'm happier knowing its better than it was.
