Haha! Yeah keeping it that clean is the mission although I'm now a dab hand with my DA polisher which is a godsend, albeit hard work.

I only picked the old girl up today so am in two minds as to whether to put the rubber mats in or use the stainless ones I bought years ago. I was thinking of sealing them up altogether and sealing them with a texture coating then Dynaxing it underneath.
