love the shot of the engine bay. as seen with many of your other posts, it could have come straight from the factory!!
What do you use to clean under the hood. tried on mine but never seemsto look clean, and your far to far away for me.
So I just try and keep on top of the cars she gets and keep them looking good well protected, we don't have them long enough to warrant doing too much to them
Although I am going to machine the TT that she has just got as its black and could do with a light machining to brighten it up a bit.
I used to own a very very tidy Saphire Cosworth back in the day, was tempted to try and get it up to a concours level. But enjoyed driving it too much to be able to keep good enough to show through the season. My friend had a 3 door Cosworth for 3 years which I helped him maintain, and the car won all the big RS shows we took it too. It had also won the 2 years previous as well with the former owner, and after seeing what has to go into to it to win the big events
He only ever drove the car once and that was the day before he sold it, which is just insane. Only covered 10 miles in it as well.
A car that I have wanted for a while now is a mint red E30 M3, absolutely love them. We don't currently have the space for one at the house at the moment, but when we move I will be sweat talking the Mrs. Have tried telling her it would be a good advertising tool to show to customers, and a good investment as they hold there money etc. But she just laughs at me
I miss not having a car to keep well looked after though
Lovely. Can't believe your mate only did 10miles in the Cosworth though... not sure I could own a car that amazing and not use it!
AS G101 can also be used for a whole host of other things as well, like cleaning wheels, removing bugs, interior etc.
Nice work Neil, The car looks stunning,
A quick question, what do you use to get the swirls out of the rear lights? machine polisher and glass polish?
stunning work yet again mate..im no detialer but find doing that sort off thng very theraputic..even tho your work is in a completely different league
Been wondering where you'd got to Neil, amazing work as always!
It's getting to that time of year, and i'm dropping the hints for the missus. I'm a keen detailer, and have been for years. Glad there's a name for it now, the wife thinks i'm weird for enjoying cleaning cars, but nothing beats the sense of achievement from seeing the results of your hard work. Anyway, without a proper polisher and pads its nigh on impossible to remove the swirl marks in the paintwork on my BMW.
What polisher, pads, and polish etc do you recommend for a starter pack for BMW paintwork, in particular? Primarily for my car, but my brother in law has a black 7 series which is in need of some TLC, and i'd like to give that a go aswell.
Even better if you could sort something out via your shop
that looks amazing, mine has some weird surface scratches and where its carbon black you really notice them, how long would that take to do mate? i live miles away but very interested... i do detailing myself just as a hobby really but i can only get rid of the minor swirls as im not brave enough to get a more course compound. pm me please dude
neil nice work as always mate
