    Well had thi monster booked in for a exterior enhancement + touch ups and also a full interior inc leather clean/feed.
    On inspection of the car a few weeks back it looked in good shape with just some light/med swirling and a few deeper scratches plus a nice share of touch up which I had to do also.
    Heres the car on arrival:

    Smarted off with the wheels and some as smart wheels and a selection of brushes, the tyres and arches with g101.
    The car was then pre-washed and ready for foam.

    This was left to dwell for 5 mins before rinsing and then ready for 2 bm wash and dodo sp, then rinsed using DI water, the car was then run inside and clayed using AB gentle grey and then run back outside for some defect shots.

    The paint readings were taken and all good standard paint apart from 2 panels but i'll let you guess with further on inj the thread. Average was 120-160 with the 2 odd panels 180-220.
    50/50

    All the machining was down using 3m fc+/uf se on a elite cutting pads, later refined using sv clear fluid.
    The car once all corrected was given a ipa wipedown and then on with the Swissvax BOS, applied by hand, forgot just how big these cars were :doublesho
    Left to cure while I dressed the tyres with megs endurance and sealed the wheels with zaino cs and cleaned the exterior glass and sealed with rainx then back to buff the wax off, I then dressed the exterior trim/rubbers with 303 the metal was polished with britemax twins but had been killed in its past life by strong TFR's and left runs in all the metal.
    The exhausts were a no go as they're the painted pipes and had started to flake tried everything to get shot heat gun, wite wool the lots in the end I gave up....
    Then onto the interior the door cards had some serious water marks and the one off leather needed a good clean/feed with gliptone, fully hoovered and the rest windows plastics with 303 etc etc.
    Now time for some finished pics please enjoy.
