    Thanks guys.
    Had a go with a very mild cleaner wax, let it soften and then worked at it slowly for about 30 minutes on and off and it removed it.
    Thank fark!

    I would test this on a very small discrete area first before trying it on the stain:

    Nah, that's not my style.   I'll just go hell for leather on the stain!  She be right!🙄

    A few years ago I discovered the Cheetah marque by chance when a colleague mentioned one that may be for sale in the same warehouse where he stores one of his cars... That one needed a lot to get it back racing therefore kept it in mind but didn't make an offer. It did though pique my interest in these particular historic open wheelers as they were made here in Melbourne through the 70's and 80's and kept my eyes and ears open.

    Just last week on the Cheetah FB page, a fully restored MK6 Australian Formula 2 car (62-13) was listed for sale locally. As the restoration was back in the 90's-00's, it will need a full going over and replace anything that may have perished but is otherwise immaculate! So I spoke to the owner and spent a few hours last weekend looking at it and all the relevant documents making an offer the next day. End result is I am the new owner!

    After an exhaustive search and much help and advice from many here (Chris, Drew, Orchie Hazza, Sal, Lee and others - bloody great stuff lads, what a brilliant community we have), I’ve finally got a new beast.
    I had looked very closely at some AC cars but this won out. Delivery (it’s getting trucked to me) is early next week 🤞🏻.
    Now, how do I change my forum name to Dave997S 😂

    That  red one used to be mine.  Brilliant car and I still miss it.  I took it to Winton one time, did about 80 laps, filled it with fuel and drove home.  Harsh car but so analogue.  
    Still, they paid me a mozza for it and I retired some debt so not too bad ...

    I don’t think it is as the car doesn’t have a rear wiper which mine does.  Also, this one looks like its a proper yellow rather than the Kodak which has a distinctly orange element.  Also, this one looks like its had two exhausts at some stage whereas mine has the original apron under the bumper.  Nice shot though.
