    Well the boredom set in

    Pointless thread really but after being stuck all week, i decided to brave the weather and start a few things.

    first things first... i finally got around to debadging, What a pain in the arse! never known known a car to be as stubborn but then again there were alot of badges.

    before

    after


    Also i got my extensive cleaning kit out, and clay barred the car then i applied my purple haze wax on the bonnet with amazing results!



    in this second pic you can see the difference from the bonnet which was clayed and waxed (only 1 coat) against the side which hasnt been done.

    Very pleased with how it came out. I will also be coming around to machine polishing nearer the summer so im expecting mirror like finishes!

    A cheeky snow pic from the other night <3

    i was in two minds, either leave the audi badge or remove, i look at it and think it looks good, but i reckon it would look smart without tooo. hmmm

    T3nnant, what bulbs are you using in the fogs & sidelights, look nice and bright and they look like they produce the same colour
