    This was the first partnership of me and Jimmeh, had been looking forward to this for a long time. The car was my cousin's TT which was hanging really, paintwork was awful for such a nice car that has had £££££££££££ spent on it.

    Its an 03 plate TT Roadster with a Big Turbo kit pushing out a healthy 330bhp.......onto the pictures:

    First the car was rinsed down:

    [​IMG]

    Then I started by cleaning the wheels using Bilberry, and Megs APC on the calipers:

    At which point Jim was doing the roof using the Autoglym kit:

    [​IMG]

    Then rinsed:

    [​IMG]

    Car was then foamed using valet pro:

    [​IMG]

    It was then washed using 2BM, clayed using Sonus Green, wasn't overly bad, sorry for the lack of pics during this stage, then it was rinsed and dried:

    [​IMG]

    Correction started on the bootlid, using a Megs Polishing pad and Menz 203S:

    Passers by were having a look at the 330 stallions under the bonnet - lol

    Paintwork on this car was now looking the best I've ever:

    Great photo's. I know where to come if I need mine sorting propa like! :laugh: Shame you didn't do the roll bars on the TT at least, personally I think they stick out like a sore thumb now. I don't normally like that shape TT but with the combination of the red and black (in good proportions too) it looks tuff as funk!

    I lost interest in my A4 for a bit. Now it needs a bit of TLC so I'm back (with a vengence it would seem!). So much to do to it and Christmas coming up soon doesn't help... and the MOT is due just after new years! :sadlike: Ah well, I kinda feel guilty for neglecting it considering the condition I used to keep my old Punto in!
