    The car was then rolled inside to the warm, and the the lower parts treated with AS tardis to remove any tar, then wiped down and Clayed with Sonus green and Megs LT as lube:












    Tail pipes cleaned with Autosol and Wire wool:








    Now i set to work on the Interior (i worked this way around as i had been machining for the 3 days straight before this so gave me a rest for a day ) mats where cleaned with AS brisc and scrubbed and vaced, vaced the interior and vents ETC then cleaned and treated leather with Glipton twins, all interior pannels where cleaned with G101, as where carpets :









    The drivers seat had "bobbleled" from wear and tear so i removed this with disposable razors:







    Right side done left not:





    All done:






    The next day i turned my attention to the paint and the job of correcting the defects, Danney (st dan on here) was over for the day having his wheels resprayed, so as his car was not going any where fast nor was he:D HELPER ! :lol: (thanks mate:thumb: ) we set to work correcting the swirls with Menz IP 3.02 on Megs polishing pads and got good results, some areas need a few hits but it was finishing down spot on and removing all the defects :




















    Now the paint was in fairly good shape all but a few deep RDS that remained due to resprayed areas , a tidy up, dust down and IPA wipe down,it was time for the LSP as requested by the client it was to be Zaino on this one (good choice :thumb: ) Z2 with ZFX x3 coats the first left to cure for 1h (
    gets a good solid base to layer up from):

    In a word, brilliant, all you must do now is get either a better camera or some decent software for resizing the after piccies - they don't do justice to what I know full well is an awesome finish. Very impressed with your work lately!
