    Neil, How long does it take you for 3 coats of FK1000P and the Colly, total time including curing?

    Nice job. Its good to see something a bit more "mundane" getting the treatment after all the exotica.

    Schoolboy question what does "Washed 2BM" mean?

    2BM = 2 Bucket Method, basically you have one bucket with your shampoo/suds etc and one rinse bucket.

    You take your wash mit, dunk in shampoo, clean one panel (or half if its large) and rinse your wash mit in the rinse bucket, therefore ensuring - as best as possible, that dirt and contaminents remain in the rinse bucket and you dont drag them back over the car, inflicting swirl marks etc etc.

    You can get grit-guards to keep the dirt away from the mit, bit I think you can do without and simply keep your mit near the top of the bucket.

    There wasn't any polish seen in Neil's report, Kirk. FK, Colli and the FK spray are all forms of LSP's (Last Stage Products) IE, used to protect (not enhance (polish))

    Polish enhances and cleans the paint.
    Wax/sealant protects and maintains the finish

    Ideally you should leave for around 30-45 mins to cure but mine were less then that as I was pressed for time

    Sorry forgot to mention that the paint was cleansed with dodo lime lite

    Cheers Jim

    Yeah I have thought about putting some alloys on it but not decided what I'm going to do yet next year, maybe a new van or a new toy

    I dont actually use the van for mobile work anymore anyway everthing is now done in house and has been for around 3 years now, so the van is just purely for advertising and when I go to peoples houses to price up jobs

    nice.

    Do you offer a delivery/collection service? leaving that roadside for the day in full sun is probably the easiest form of advertising you could do! Good one!

    Neil, great work on the van. Always enjoy your posts, seeing the before & after. Can never understand why you see some valeters with van's which are an absolute state, what better advertisement than to have your van gleaming!

    Anyway, was hoping you could answer a quick question for me. Just had my door repaired and painted, and the paint on the door is a slight shade lighter, not noticeable to most people, but I can spot it straight away.

    Is there anything I can use which can make the panel appear a bit darker?

    Thanks in advance.

    It sound as though the body shop have not matched the paint correctly, not at all uncommon but if your not saitfied with the work they have done then your first point of call would be to go back to the body shop and raise your concerns with them.

    Was the work done by an approved body shop or a smart repair?

    Neil
