buffed red up today...

washed it a couple of days ago and its been sat in the garage really so when it was lashing down today (and it still is - 24 hrs+ of rain now!) and the missus was off to get her hair cut this morning i decided i'll buff the ol gal up. I just used some red t cut scratch remover (i figured it wont be much differnt from T cut) then buffed it off and then used a spray like speed wax. Not the best pics at all really and the weather outside wasn't really casting much light into the garage but it come out quite nice and certainly alot more shiny than it was as i can see my reflection clearly in the car now.







need to sort my wheels out big time they're shot with kerbing and scratches and it wont hurt to pop them off one at a time and give them a good clean up while they're off the car. maybe give the wheel nuts a coat of black hammerite too to renew them... they'll look alot better after than they do right now!

gonna pick up a clay bar tomo and maybe run over it with that too then buff it all up again. Keeps me entertained

cheers Mark.
Just ordered a couple of sets of these to try and see if they cant spruce up my kerbed wheels! - they're pre-curved to fit the wheel so shouldn't warp like straight rolls of bike rim tape tends to. Cant be any worse than they are now and i can whip the wheel off and give em a real good polish and clean while i do it.

quite enjoying givin the ol gal a bit of tlc really
