    gutted for both of you lads after the effort you put into your cars, funnily enough six months back someone reversed into my front bumper with a tow bar then a few weeks later someone into the wing of my car, i mean ffs why do we bother?

    Pissed! That's a nasty bit of damage he's done there... Add me to the we hate dodgy bus drivers list... Black cabs are no better down here, but that's another story altogether.

    I hope you get it all sorted to your satisfaction, the work on the pana roof is epic and probably the most ballsy mod I've ever seen..... For a sec thereI actually thought about trying it!:slapped: lol!

    I tell you what that is legendary, crazy, running in slow motion through a hail of bullets courageousness.

    I've been dithering over doing an ashtray delete while you've been bending metal to your will with your bare hands.

    I feel like I'm your ***** just by looking at this thread.

    You must get get blokes going gay just by walking past them, and women must take their knickers off just at the thought of you leaving the house.

    oh and on the wax front probably the best you can do is store the car inside for 2 weeks for cure and settling, then id recommend 2 coats of neilson liquid gold or an equivelant followed by 2 coats of autoglym hi definition wax.
