Been abit of a long time coming ( Sorry Chap )

To keep costs down ( as it was done as part of an offer ) a deal was struck to offset my milage with cost. So i turned up to a freshly washed car :thumbsup: ( Hence the dirty arches :lol: )

So where we go.

I turned up and had a god old natter with Mr Meilack. After giving him a run down of the process i proceeded

The car was clayed using Poorboys clay
Measurements were then taken of the paintwork to see what i had to play with. Range was from 150 down to 90something
Taped up unpainted plastics
Chose a pad and polish compound ( megs 83 on SFX2.), paint was like normal fords, not soft, not hard, just Perfect to work on with teh time frame
Car was machine polished to 95% correction, with swirls and all light scratches removed as well as some other little defects sorted
I then ran a glaze over the ST, Black hole by poorboys is fantasic stuff so thats what i decided to used. this was done on th PC with a finishing pad ( SFX3 )
waxing was done with Collonite 476, this was carried out by pad ( i prefer to use hand, but the colli was alittle to hard for that )

Glass cleaned with spray and wipe ( glass was clayed at beginning )
Unpainted plastics were given a once over with natural look dressing and the exhaust given a polish

Thank you to Adam and his Dad for making me feel very welcome, coming out to chat and offering me food and drink :thumbsup: top host
