    Got asked by a mate if i could do anything with a scratch he got along the whole of the passenger side of his Subaru....had a look and said i could sort it but would be better off having the whole car done as where i remove it will stick out like a sore thumb.

    So i took delivery of it and proceeded to get a great turnaround........ The cars paintwork was VERY bad so i gave it a good Single Stage correction

    Usual washing methods to cleanse the car ready for the machine polishing stage
    Used Sonax Perfect Finish which i rate alot and finnally seal in with Collinite 845

    Some great 50/50 shots.......

    It was a dull day when i took delivery and a sunny day when finished which was very pleasing when he picked it up.....

    Enjoy

    That is an amazing result mate, and what a fantastic colour in the sun. 10/10

    Nice to see an old scooby looking so well, and I hope you gave him some **** for the moss in the rubbers and creases!

    I've always wanted a uk200 completely standard one though and they are hard to come by. Or a P1 I'm not fussy ;-)

    Cracking result there - looks like it could do with a bit of TLC every once in a while!

    Know what you mean about rewarding - it's like gardening (or at least weeding)... You can really see the difference when you've a good old go at it!
