    Now that uni is finished for me ive been having trouble filling the time till i find myself a job, so took it apon myself to give the car a bit of a clean
    Id never used the HD wax before, and by the time i had finished i was knackered!! but it does am amazing job!
    So to kill even more time i did the interior this morning, cleaned the dash and cleaned and conditioned the leather, looks like new!! well happy!! :rock:

    haha they have learnt to accept me and my odd ways!

    its just autoglyms tyre dressing spray, it keeps the tyres looking black for quite a long time, untill they get soaked, then needs a re application

    will have to pick some up over the next couple of days and get it sorted, tho hopefully by the end of the summer it will have a tb milltek on there so wont be tooo much of a problem... now just need to find a job to help fund it all haha
    seriously the free time, although for the moment being good, can see it getting boring very fast, am not used to having nothing to do haha!!

    Looking very nice mate, the amount of time you spent clearly shows how many hours did you put in ?

    found some metal polish!! that will be tomorrow instalment on the car!!

    cheers mate!!
    i think it was about 3-3.5 hours on the exterior and i reckon another 1.5-2 on the interior
    its a real investment in time but when the sun hits it the shine is so deep the pictures just dont do it justice!!
