    Just a few pics as its sunny :)

    After refurbing my headlights yesterday today I managed to get a couple of coats of wax on whilst it was nice and sunny out so thought I would share a few piccies













    Still running on my winter wheels so next job after going up to see Bill at B5 on thursday will be to refurb my RSTT`s and get some new rubber on them ready for some summer posing lol

    As it just got dark here a couple of lights on shots





    This is my headlight after the restoration process I did earlier this week :



    And here are a few shots of the new LED lights I got from tr8ps (EM Tuning) fitted to the car :







    Thanks for looking

    Always impressed at how it scrubs up ok for a 12 year old car so Cheers Sandra

    From 5 feet away it looks amazing but defo could do with a proper detailing session as up close and personal it has a few marks here an there.

    Yup 4 days to go till mapping time

    Cleaned using just some muc off car shampoo and then dried it off.

    First coat of wax was some Poorboys Blackhole that I had been given to try and second coat was G3 Superwax quick buff off and bobs your uncle

    Gonna get me some of the poorboys stuff next as it was easy to use with good results.

    Yeah gonna have to try out that rotary polisher I got with the gazzillions of different pads etc that I have no idea how to use lol.

    I need some more car shampoo at some point and yeah the Uber shine muc off stuff was good and smells like bubblegum so if I can find it cheap I will get some more Oh and there is nothing wrong with pink in the right situations!!

    Well to be honest its taken 2 attempts lol

    First off as I had the headlights out a couple of weeks ago whilst doing my final stage 2 tweaks I took the opportunity to sand the lenses down so got 3 grades of wet n dry paper and went over each light until all the big marks were gone. I then used Meguairs Plast-X to try n buff them up which came up ok.

    Once I had put the car back together I could tell from certain angles that they were still a little cloudy and on closer inspection I could still see some small scratches from the sanding process. So I decided to purchase this Turtle Wax Headlight Restore Headlamp Lens Restoration Restorer Kit FG6690 | eBay as it was cheap and promised good results. So while the lights were still in the car I used the turtle wax kit which has made the lenses a lot clearer and didn't actually take that long to do as of course I had done a lot of the hardwork with the wet n dry.

    The turtle wax kit also has some base coat your meant to use after the rubbing down process but I put it on and it looked awful so I took it off using more plast-x and just used the sealent provided.
