    Folks,
    Two part question related to the images attached. I have a fair bit of blistering around the centre of my alloys. I;d be happy to try to refurb these myself if anyone could suggest as to how to best go about it.



    Also have a a very annoying greasy handprint on the bonnet that after several ashed just wont go away. Any suggestions as to how I can dest remove it. Comes up as a white stain which I hope you can see in the picture.

    Thanks
    Will.

    have you tried using a claybar to remove the hand print off or maybe try some tar remover.

    yup spotted this but wondered whether it was the same for the blistering. Reckon I'd be taking off quite a bit of material to get it back to flush and dont know if its a good idea to do this....
