    Just thought I'd share a few pictures I'd taken on the iPhone of my car after I gave it a nice bath! Was suprised the pictures came out "ok".

    It's not had a coat of wax in months and the detail done back in the early spring is holding up great. At the moment its wearing DoDo Juice Supernatural, of which it has 2 coats, below that is FinishKare 1000p which was applied at the time of detail. Still looks ok I think, will be reworking my new products from G Techniq and Swissvax once I've got over the purchase of my house, detailing is expensive isnt it!!! Lol.

    I'm happy with the way the car sits now on the new suspension setup. Looks fuller when spacers are applied to the hubs.

    Anyway...here they are. :)

    Opps forgot, yep the wheels are spacer'd, got forge ones in the end, had to wait as a bad batch was seeing hairline cracks. These are fine though. 16mm each side for rear and 10mm per side front.

    Lol, 1.5 hours is quick! Although Gtechniq C4 and FK1000p have cut my wash time down considerably!

    Respect mate, looks brilliant, especially as these are iphone photographs - my iphone is bloody awlful at taking good pics so I can only imagine the car looks even better in the flesh!
