A day of buffing....

on Tue May 30, 2017 5:56 pm

I've spent much of today (and a couple of hours yesterday) with a DA polisher - very similar to the sanders I used for my furniture making. Surprising what marks you can't rid of - car now swirl free. Just a bit of finishing on the roof and then onto waxing...

I'll need to get this done on the Civic. The paintwork isn't great and is quite swirly. Also, I've got kinda used to having metallic cars, the flat red looks a bit..well....flat.

Finished, at last! Just some plastic trim to wipe and some tyre dressing.

Similar Spot - you could probably use something like that.

30 seconds after I had put everything away - it rained!!! Better pics nofollow...

i've been looking at 2nd hand XF's, bloody good value arent they! (obviously not Huge's spec) but the 3.0 diesels are very reasonable

Hugh,

There is a 12 reg black one across the street from me - I have not talked to the driver, but it has very serious  damage to the passenger front door and to the front wing.

I doubt if this can be repaired - think he needs replacement panels - I could weep at the damage - scared to ask how the guy feels or how it happened.

Don't want to take a photo in case he assaults me...

VFC

PS - Yours looks GREAT!

Yesterday I put a new SV8 badge on the back. Hopefully people will stop the Audi A3 2.0TDi brigade trying to have a go.....
