I'd been promising to do this car for a while now & finaly got my ass in to gear & made the trip up to my friend Rich's house.

The car is a PD130 (02Reg) , suspension has been lowered & monty 2's fitted.

Paintwise its wasnt in tip top shape, but again, it wasnt the worse I've seen.

Started off with the PC & some Menzerna Intensive Polish, passing over at #2, #4 & a final fast #6, this was then chased up with a similar pass pattern using Menzerna Final Polish 2.

Next stage was to got over the car using Menzerna Finishing Touch Glaze, to give a really high gloss glass like shine.

& the fininshing touch was a coating of Pinnicle Souveran carnuaba wax.

Glass wise NXT Glass was used.

Trim was treated with Poor Boys Trime Restorer, along with the tyres

Cheers,

It took about 5hrs, the car had already been washed the night before, which saved a bunch of time [Y]

This is what it looked like saturday night under the lights (Camera Phone Pic)

Hi mate,

Is urs lowered at all? Im considering going back to these wheels to get a nicer ride, If yours is lowered, is it still a comfy ride?

Thanks

Jace, it's ok mate! what I would suggest is that you get some of that Zymol wax erm I think it cost ?6k, you may get a better shine!! [:p]

Excellent work Jace, the depth and clarity of the paint work in those shots is great [Y] I'm going to have to try the Menzerna product range when my PB runs out.

Where did you get the Menzerna stuff from?
Thanks [:D]

I got it from Polished Bliss, prices are very good compaired to Clean & shiney, even with discount.

Only rattle I have is from the derv engine [:p]

Runs smooth as silk, which still amazes me with the miles piling on, or maybe I'm going to fast for the sound to keep up [;)]
