Looking forward to getting this tip top tomorrow.

As well as a paint correction, it will also be getting a thorough clean inside, engine bay clean/ polish and a coat or 2 of a very nice wax to get it better than new for the new owner.

Will share this thread on FB and Twitter..

Ok Here goes, details of how this great car was prepped to be the best it can be and hopefully get the most for it.

first off, major clean in all the tight areas:











Wheels cleaned in and out:



then Iron X'd:



Lovely:



Paintwork was then clayed, detarred etc, and machine polished to remove the top oxidised, swirled & faded layer of paint. Here are some 50/50 comparisons of that.










Then, pound for pound the most expensive wax in the world (Swissvax Divine) was applied, to give it the best UV protection and really turn the depth up to 11:



While this was curing the interior was scrubbed, including the mats:



Engine bay was dressed and polished:



Wax buffed off to leave the car how it should look, wheels waxed with Autofinesse Mint rims, glass cleaned, tyres dressed, exhaust polished with Britemax twins.

























RIP
