One of the keys areas to fix here was the bonnet-lip where “LAND ROVER” is sited. “Why?”
^this is why. Throughout its weekly wash (in someone else’s hands) it appears to have gained some pretty serious scratches around the letters. To fix this the only solution was to strip the old letters off, polish, and replace with new ones. More on this later.
Usual wash process carried out - Wheels/arches and tyres first. Door shut & sills, petrol (diesel..) filler housing and other little niggely areas.
Monday was pretty much full-sun all day; glorious weather. With that in mind, I motored on.. (Hence lack of photos)
Mild contaminants lifted throughout the claying stages:
A proper inspection of the paintwork now its clean, clayed and dry.
The O/S rear quarter was shocking. It’d been to Land Rover direct for some spray work and had been left in a poor state of affairs.
Upon later inspection sanding marks were still present, lots of overspray and gunk in the crevice between the panel and the light-cluster and whole areas that had been missed in the flatting processes were spotted.
First things first, remove the badges on the front-end.
