    Have you got facelift headlights fitted?

    They look very bright and clear.

    Nice wax, just make sure you can store it in the fridge.

    The finish on the car looks great!

    I'm getting far too drawn into this obsession. I've used many different waxes and sealants. Currently using Collinite 915, looks amazing of other halfs blue Toyota, a real depth and gloss, but while it is the best so far, it's not the finish I'm looking for on the Indium Grey MB. Might try the Zymol. The idea of buying different products depending on the colour and paint manufacturer is really a step too far!!

    I'm more interested in the car in your avatar! I need to see that one polished up.

    Regards, Neil

    Go for Zymol, its the best, the three step that finished with the Glasur is not as time consuming as you might think and there is something 'sexy/appealing' about putting it on with your hands, you do get to know the car well!!

    car in the avatar is the 10th Elan plus two made and as far as i know the oldest surviving plus two. off topic i know but will be Cirus white. Chassis is now rolling and being buily

    We need some pics and regular updates on the restoration.

    As you may have guessed I like Lotus cars, nothing handles quite like them and we have plenty of corners round here.

    Best of luck with it, I'll look forward to seeing it back on the road.

    Regards, Neil

    That looks lovely!

    Always fanied the Plus 2, seems like the perfect family car, always said these Merc estates were too big!

    I'll look forward to the updates.

    Off to the Revival now, Jimmy Clark is the featured driver this year, hope the rain stays off.

    regards, Neil
