    I'll echo the above comments, looks really good. Can't wait to see the full pics. Got to get the door trim on the driver's side sorted though! I have the same problem on my passenger door.

    Hey all.

    Thanks for all the comments. Yeah drivers side door trim on order, it's been like it for 2 years lol.

    I've taken some photo's but want to take more in different locations, will be doing some later on tonight or might even wait till this overcast cloudy weather has gone. I am a little disappointed with the Supernatural, I thought it would be amazing. Truth is Victoria seemed to shine more, more depth and maybe looked more wet. It's hard to say without two cars the same colour to compare, I'm going from memory.

    Watch this space. Pics will be here soon.

    Bah, average ;)

    G, if you want looks, try some Natty's Blue. Not got the legs of some other waxes (Carbon, Onyx, SN etc), but looks wise it really is superb and at such a low cost, I love it!

    Final Pictures.

    Will be taking more once I've snow foamed it and given it another coat of Supernatural, but at the moment I'm a little disappointed in the level of shine, car had been driven a lot to get to the location so it is dirty in these pictures, wheels give it away. It is very overcast too so please bare that in mind.

    You've put a lot of work into this G, well done. Rewarding, isn't it??

    How many hours do you think you've spent so far in total?

    Look forward to seeing your full-sun after photographs.

    Have fun! :)

    Thanks both. :)

    Hours...well counting the detail over 18 months ago and this recent one around 8 days. Not including the interior, i spent more of my time on the outside than the inside. Inside is this weekend!

    Looks nice, especially the last shot of the front bumper. Also looks good with your spacers on. Need to invest in some of those...

    Yep...I'll be getting those for you very soon. Might be later on today providing the weather stays ok.

    I can't tell you just how much the spacers change the car, ok I've had suspension repaced too but the spacers alone make the wheels look bigger and more pronounced.
