God dam fantastic !!!
Lol is this the photo shoot before the car gets put away for the winter!.....Looking good guys.
And now i can never get away with...."no it does not polish up too well because its silver"............Cheers Rash!
Even without the above the condition of your car is a credit to you, it looks amazing
I'm going to have to touch in the two new stone chips I got on the Scotland run. I'll try the cocktail stick approach......then I might even get a bit of polish on my car!
Thanks for the kind comments guys. Rash's car is as near perfect as one can get. My car is as near perfect as you can get when it does 15k a year. This week I've done 1200 miles in it but because of all the layers of polish I can get it back to OK quite quickly
Great photo's Greg.
Your wheels Rash really suit the car. Have you got use to them yet ?
Shaving stone chip. Carried at out at your own risk.
I had two stone chips on the A pillar after my lastest Scotland run. I touched them in using MB touchup paint of the correct colour applied with a cocktail stick. One of the chips I filled correctly , the other I overfilled leaving a mess.
As requested this is how I fixed the mess:
Having let the paint dry solid for two days I then used a sharp knife edge to gently shave the excess paint off. I prepared the area by spraying detailing spray on the paint to lubricate the area and try to avoid the knfe digging into the good paint.
I then got my polisher out and gently polished the area using my normal turtle wax (I didn't dare use a cutting compound as Im a coward!)
Final result is not invisible but you wouldn't notice it at two feet away!
Hope this helps!
Wont use a cutting compound ...But happy to set about it with an old stanley knife!
You are a braver man than me.
