    I'd heard of t-cut but also seen some pretty drastic damage caused by it lol (not me), finish on the car is really good for the age,only had her since aug so this winter will show if anythings been hidden but it all looks sound,on the prowl for a set of alloys for next year then can get em refurbed if req. Bit of v/light t-cutting it is then ...gulp.

    Or you could use a sonus restore product which would be much milder. Get some off ebay, only a small bottle is about 6 or 7 squids.

    weathers been ok oop north,so had a go with the t cut, seems good to me,before you could see the blemish even when polished if you got the light right,but it all looks fine now,given the roof a good waxing and may do some more a panel at a time. ta for the advice.. Ian.
