    Cool N8 v Jordans A3 S-Line 170

    After Jordan's long wait to get his wheels, his car was finally ready for a detail! So after a long morning of running round and sorting out various issues, we were ready to roll, here is how his car looked from the start, rather sorry for itself!

















    There was no outside power point, so we had to run the 45m extension cable from his window.



    Here were the new rims, waiting to go on, after we had the tyres fitted!



    The arches were cleaned, the tyres were sealed and it was looking 1 million times better already:







    Next the car was snow foamed:









    The colour of the rims was absolutley stunning, and just kept changing colour all the time!





    Washed the car via the usual 2BM:



    Clayed with Sonus, car was pretty contaminated, here was a lighter example:



    With it all dried, I used Jeffs Werkstat Acrylic Kit:









    With finishing off all the little bits, here are some finishing shots:

    Looking stunning at night:



    The remaining pics were from GTI festival yesterday:

    Great stuff, very very good reflections. No correction, just protection I assume?

    edit; that wasn't a deliberate rhyme!

    Not as long as we'd wanted due to lack of water and having to feck about with the wheels and tyres in the morning

    Plan was to start at 9am, and get a mate to pick me up to take the wheels to get tyres fitted

    He failed to show, so me and N8 had to go and get them done, work started properly at about 1pm

    All credit to him, it got dark when we finished, and he started on the interior at 8.30pm!!!

    Top class result though all the same
    Need mine doing too, have a few chips in the front inside wing though, would also need correction. Having said that I suppose a good old proper clean / polish would enhance it a lot.

    Only problem with cleaning mine to this degree, i can now see ALL the stonechips and dents in the bonnet from them

    When i get my S3 front bumper, i'm getting the bumper, bonnet and both wings sprayed so they're nice and fresh as well as matching

    No doubt my drive home from the bodyshop will result in a new stonechip

    In my defence, Jordan was on about stone chips on his way back from bodyshop after having S3 front end fitted. Nothing to do with N8 work

    Usually when someone writes "LMFAO" it denotes a joke, so no need to be defensive is there!

    Still, those Bonnet Bra's are absolutely fecking **** & in all honesty if you have one on your car, IMHO you need Sectioning, "LMFAO"

    Just a figure of speech.

    was just a suggestion to save the newly sprayed S3 front end after just been done didn't realised it would cause WW3!

    Note to self: Never mention bo**et Bras on ASN

    Mention what you like fella, doesnt mean people will agree with you, thats the whole point of a forum, to express opinions & POV's as we both are.

    As for WW3, if you'd seen some of the threads on here it would be WW100000000 by now lmfao, this is childs play compared to some unfortunately. :P

    I'm sure there is a joke to be made in here somewhere about bras and the signature photo . . .
