    What a difference, easy :)

    Joking aside, you guys do some top notch work :yes:

    Are you ever down in the Glasgow area?

    Also what is it you do to polish up the exhaust tips to look like new?

    Sometimes in Glasgow, but local work dominates these days. Exhaust tips; we tend to use either Megs NXT All Metal Polysh or Blackfire Fine Cut Metal Polish, but the trick is to apply them using the white side of a German Pad - this gives the products a lot more bite, and allows cleaning up of even the cruddiest looking tips. :yes:

    I think your cat has turned away in disgust.

    There are no companies in Glasgow whose work I know well enough to be able to recommend, so bit stuck in this respect. If you would be happy to wait until the start of June then we would travel down for the work if that would help, the only thing to point out at this stage is that the first 100 miles of any round trip are free, thereafter it's £0.30 per mile to cover fuel (from AB51 0TH). :)

    No worries, might be worth asking on Detailing World - you're bound to get offers, just make sure you check out portfolio's first. Other option is to drive up to us once the new place is open, might lower the travel bill a bit (if you can resist putting the foot down lol!). :sm4:

    I sold my 16s on eBay to a guy who owned a Transporter like yours. He'd bought loads of bits for it as well as my wheels. More impressive was that it was in better condition than my Sportback ...
