I just tend to give them a polish everytime I wash the car. Been over a year since I've machined them I think!You won’t need to paint those grilles dude, just get some Carpro Perl on there with a 4:1 mix. Mine have never been painted and are 125k miles old now.
Also now you’ve done a lovely job on the headlight lenses, get some ceramic coat on there, as they will have a UV barrier and stop them from fading again.
Yeah it's so much better, headphones on and I can just crack on! No worries about people walking by anymoreGreat work as always Louis.
You having the driveway must be a godsend now.
Covered fine yeah, it wasn't a full correction I was after as I didn't have the time! Just wanted to remove some marks its picked up since last time.Car looks great mate!
Did the poorboys black hole cover over the 400 ok?
You doing it properly and removing the windscreen strips?
Yeah, but they're toss anyway! You can always put a small hole in for the sensor like KTEC doI wanted a sunstrip on mine but assume this makes the auto wipers redundant?
New rear wiper blank arrived. This is the fibreglass variant rather than the carbon as I'll be painting it satin black regardless. Mine has always been 'sagging' as it's a bodged genuine one that's had filler and fibreglass on the back. This new one should be loads better!

I'll have a look mate! Need to clean all my pads out, never got round to it! I used a nylon brush to clean out the compound on each panel, do i need to do it more often?Try some Angelwax Resurrection mate - really good stuff. If you’re using MF pads work in really small sections (twice the diameter of the pad by 4 x diameter) and speed 4-5 on a DA. Brush pad out every other pass unless you’ve got a compressor in which case blow the pad out.
Still looks bloody good
I wash mine in the machine. 30 degrees and air dry.I'll have a look mate! Need to clean all my pads out, never got round to it! I used a nylon brush to clean out the compound on each panel, do i need to do it more often?
You might be right actually, i've never noticed! I replaced the nearside (iirc) a while back as it had some internal cracking, i'll look at polishing this at the weekend to see if it improves. Sure it looks fine in person.This looks proper! Only thing a bit bugging me is the driver side rear light, looks a bit faded on the white circle?
Love you work..
Haha, yeah! Was my leaving do before I went back to uni for my final year. Madness!Looking lovely!
I remember when you first got it, we were rushing around all over Huddersfield to receive it then go to the pub for drinks with the work guys. Was it your leaving do?
They sure are my little buttermuffin.I hope the skirts are on with stainless bolts otherwise they'll sieze up quicker than a nuns c**t.
