here you go Exterior Coatings // G|Techniq

you only need the 15 ml bottle, its expensive but definatly worth it. Make sure you don't get it on paint or glass though as it wont come off easily mask up

Its really easy to do too, you literally wipe it on then wipe it off with a mf

have you done the sound generator yet?

finish is, as you say, like new.

why did you debadge, Sam?
I think it looks a lot cleaner and smooth with out the badge, the back is quite small and is very cluttered

I'm looking for a plastic disc to spray and cover the lock slot to finish off
