Good work Sat, now deck that mofo! [:D][Y]

To get a greater shine you need stronger lighting. That's it, you can't reflect more than is available, basic physics. Make the lacquer surface as clean and smooth as possible, which you've already done and you won't be able to make a huge improvement on that.

All in good time shiu i want to lower it on standard shocks about 35-40mm but just don't want the oem shocks f'in up afterwards so i dunno what to do at the moment even though i haven't got the money to get it done yet lol.. Where could i go to get better reflection shots as i can see them nicely when im looking at it from different angles but when trying to take a pic it doesn't work.. what sort of lighting will be best to get reflection shots??

Thanks again Sat [y]

I like it, but my only comment would be to change the rear badge back for a silver one (or possibly colour coded but not sure) black badges look good on dark cars but silver looks best on light coloured cars, but it's just my opinion!!

I was thinking about starting a meet, Merry Hill would be a great place, just got back from there (was shopping) and noticed tons of "fast" Clio`s and "the jap Crap crew" in their dodgy Suburus. its a laugh watching them , would be nice to get some fine cars up there and show them up. Anyway my cars due for a good wash and de-bugging, ill get up some photo`s over the weekend. [H]
