    OK, seeing as I'm allways postin pics of cars on here, and critiquing other members' cars like an as.net Simon Cowell on crack, I though it was about time Im put some of mine on...

    A bit of sun yesterday and some off work I decided to give the car a wash/wax and polish and treat it to a drive through some of the more sereen, scenic, and rural parts of sahf london.. so erm....

    Ta mate used megs "nxt tech wax" was my 1st time using megs as Ive allways been an autoglim man was pretty impressed also picked up one of these from hellfrauds

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_188980_langId_-1_CarSelectorCatalogId__CarSelectorGroupId__varient__categoryId_31443_crumb_33958_parentcategoryrn_31443

    Wasnt expecting much for 16 squid, but I have to say I did the whole thing in half the time and will come in handy for quick waxing over the coming months :cool:

    I knew it wouldn't take long for the Clothing debate to rear its ugly head.

    We are a bunch of Trinny and Suzannas aren't we!!!!!

    I happen to be wearing a TUTU now as we speak, but with Doctor Martens.

    How much did the colour code-ing cost you?

    Im in Leeds & need to find someone that can do me a good job like they did with yours, or was it just a full respray job?

    I was getting some scuffs and scrapes sorted and got them to paint the lowers as well so couldnt tell you how much it is to do em on their own as mine were full bumper resprays.
    They have to platicise them 1st so the paint stays on looks the same as the rest of the bumper.. The sideskirts were removed plasticed, painted and put back on... Id say maybe a couple of hundred? Depends where you go.

    Looks sweet as a nut mate!

    I take it you're only getting spacers for the rear as the front looks sound the way it is:

    Is that 12V orbit polishing machine any good? Will it remove swirl marks / scratches etc?

    ...only had a quick blast on it, for polishing its good, but if you look at the close up of my bonnet you can see a couple of swirl marks still there.
