    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default Bob and Khalid detail a Land Rover

    Had a request from someone at work to have a look at their Land Rover which they had just required. Soo, who you gonna call?? Bob and Khalid!



    Weather was a scorcher so we put the tank underneath a Gazebo to help to keep it cool



    Bob looking at me to as if to say, what **** have you got me into? Next couple of pics show what!!!



    Some serious swirls! Looks like someone had used a yard brush or broom to clean this thing!



    Followed by more swirls.. See a pattern here?



    Bob attacking it with something in a bottle



    A reflection shot of before being machine polished.



    Same panel after being machine polished



    The lads taking a well earned lunch break



    Some 'after' shots of being attacked with 3M fast cut, some other stuff and some more stuff, some black hole wax/sealant? or was it V7?

    The aim was to get it looking better rather than perfect. That was just impossible in one day. Good days work by the guys. I'm sure they'll add their comments and annotations later on.



















    Big thanks to Khalid and Bob for working their socks, they've even had an offer from my next door neighbour to say if she asked them would they give her a buffing to remove her wrinkles lol!!
