    Nothing spectacular but I had let my coupe get into a horrendous state whilst being off of the road for sooooooo long. Anyway, I needed to get some polish on to protect it from the elements.

    I don't think it's too bad for 1992 paint work

    I believe white is probably the most forgiving colour you could ever choose




















    I still have a clay bar that I want to give a try when the weather improves again. There are still various bits that need detailing but it will get a complete strip down and clean before arriving back on the road. This polish was just to add a little protection as it had been neglected for a while

    Can't wait to get another garage

    Because I spend my time on fixing everything but my coupe

    I have rectified the main fault that made me take it off the road but still have a few niggly problems on the electrical side of things

    Not having a garage has slowed the work down considerably.

    Never mind eh? At least I got the polish on whilst it was dry. Rain flies off of the paintwork now

    You do know you are not supposed to use silicone based products on the paintwork, right?
