I hadnt planned on posting either of these details as one was a new car detail and the other one had me really pushed for time, so i just took before and afters for the port folio, but figured i'd be aswell post the pics as some of them came out well.

On the Wednesday, i only managed to get the car washed/clayed etc and put inside as i had to go and collect my car from Kirkaldy where it was getting some work done, so i had to get it all finished on the Thursday - this consisted of a killer 17 hour day and i got finished up around midnight!
