Went out for a play this afternoon having given the car an ultra quick wash, to hunt out some new places to take photos of it (sad eh? [:|]), and to see what happens when you tilt the camera all over the shop [;)]

Some of the results:

Posted Image

Tucked in a farm entrance on Parsonage Lane

Posted Image

Close up of one of the wheels - same place

Posted Image

Twisted headlight - same place

Posted Image

Managed to get most of the polish out the grill [;)] - same place

Posted Image

Climbing up the trees - some little back round I didn't know existed round the back of the industrial estate [;)]

Posted Image

Didn't quite get all the lines to match up as I wanted - on the industrial estate behind hawley

Posted Image

Is it me or does that paving look bent?? - same place

Posted Image

Again slightly out with the lines [:(] I'll get there eventually - different road in the industrial estate.

I found out two important things today - one is that we have a Ginsters Regional Sales Office on the industrial estate - the other is I've got polish all over my damn plastics again [:mad:] - took ages to get the stuff off last time - any quick hints for that please?? (Spot the white patches on the sills etc)

Thoughts on the random twistedness of my camera also welcome - kinda impressed how wet the car looks in some of these - when it's not reallyt [:$]

Cheers fella

Right round the back of the Questor (finally remembered the name of the estate) towards the Royal Mail bit - and there's a side road - Units 44/45 I think it was [:)]

That looks great mate, also to remove the excess polish off your
plastic bits try using a pencil eraser (no seriously) as this takes off
the majority of the polish and lets the black come through then use
some megs trim detailer to bring it back to the nice matt black plastic
look.
