Chucked the mats in the washing machine. They've come up lovely and smelling very much more fragrant.
The standard Elgrand mats? Did they come out ok no poppers missing etc? My ones could really do with a clean but scared of slinging them in the machine πŸ˜€

Yep, just the standard pop together mats, all survived without damage on a 60 degree wash cycle. Did them a couple at a time though.

Got my rider style grille from croooober today guys, it's a genuine Autech Nissan job, apparently its been adapted to fit a highway star bumper, guess what I'll be doing this evening. I'm Super happy with the condition of it, I just hope it fits correctly or of it does fit, the contour is the same as my bumper, 206 quid delivered and 32 quid customs to pay.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that looks like a S1 grill and yours is a S2???

Gave it a good wash to get all the salt and grime off. Wanted to get some wax on it but couldn't face it after washing it and putting all the gear away.

Got underneath it to confirm my suspicion that the tinny rattle when cold was indeed the usual exhaust heat shielding crap falling apart. Happened on every old Nissan I've owned that still had it in place. Ripped it all off the Micras in the past (except for the bit that was shed on the A38) but decided the easy remedy for now was to remove the rotten clamp and replace with galvanised wire as I have no clips that size. That'll probably outlast the shields anyway.

I decided to have a look at the front bumper arch damage it came with. It was 'fixed' by the garage when I bought it, well, when I say fixed I mean pulled back together with self-tappers and silicone sealant. Whilst going to view this house in 2017 I turned around in the village and caught the bumper on a grass bank, popping the repair open. It actually pulled the screws through the bumper. The arch liner is remarkably strong.
That's how it's been since then and looked pretty horrible..

My fix was going to be much the same really, drill holes for new self-tappers, but without lathering everything in silicone. Just pull it back together and not worry about the cracked paint or missing plastic etc. What I want to do is put some white paint on the screw heads to make them less obvious and maybe put some Milliput in the holes.. Next year then probably!
