    I then taped the car up and went round with various yellow 3m pads and Carpro Fixer polish, each panel was given a wipe down with Carpro eraser after polishing to check finish and remove any polishing oils.

    Cannot believe the starting condition of that paintwork! God only knows how that had been cleaned in its previous life. Unbelievable.

    Ive just had a quick look at the Tickford and the 280, both are in brilliant condition! Ive not seen a 280 around in Derbys/Notts in a long time, a few years ago there was a couple local to work but I don't know what happened to them :)
