Operation De-Badmanz/neglect/make it look awesomeish

Right,
Can't normally be bothered to keep doing one of these every time I get a car but this one is proper special.

I bought it very cheap as the bodywork needed a lot of attention and a few other little niggles. The car itself is spot on but the interior and bodywork was appalling.
It came from Birmingham (that's all I need to say)

Thanks to the advice from a few on here by 9:30am this morning I had already spent £150 on new cleaning stuff.
I started about 10am and finished about 3:30pm, all things considered not bad considering eveything I did.

To start with, I used half a bottle of that purple wheel stuff.. (very good stuff)

I really like that shape, and agree with cat171 on de-badging it. Looks like you've cleaned it up a fair amount, good effort, I just hope it stays that clean for more than a few hours ;)

Yep. Bloke had a puncture 2 days before I bought it and put a sunny on it lol. New rear tyres should be with me next week. :)
