    Is there anyone that rents electric polishers for detailing?

    I'm getting my bumper, bonnet, and rusty roof painted on the 1st june. Once its done I want to do a full detail but I dont want to fork out over Ł100 for a polisher if there is somewhere I can rent one from.

    Does anyone know any companies that provide this service, or even if there is a member in the Hertfordshire area that has one and wouldn't mind helping me out

    They will quickly mop it but nothing like the effort I want to put into it!

    Hi mate is your S3 actually "Rusty"?

    I'm getting the paintwork done by a mate of a mate who repairs crashed motors and sells them on. I got a quote from an Audi approved body shop just to do the roof and they quoted Ł400! I'm getting the bumper, bonnet and roof done by this mate of a mate for Ł200

    I've already tried that route and they did the paint depth test to find that my rear quarter had been sprayed at some point so they wont touch it that was when they quoted me Ł400!

    Yeah I wouldn't be suprised if it had the rust patch before because it looks like the roof strip has been removed and put back in because it has a slight kink in it! I've bought a brand new roof strip for this time. The previous owner was obviously a tit
