    Default cut and polish required

    Hi all
    After fitting a replacment wing the rest of the car looks dull in comparison.
    Is there anyone around the Coventry area that could mop and polish my wife's vectra c as I don't have an electric mop or enough knowledge to carry out this job.

    Regards

    Vehicle : Saab 9-3 Aero

    Trim : Aero

    Engine : 2.8 Turbo V6

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 62000

    What colour is it buddy....Any chance of a photo?
    I have a rotary and done a few cars now, not pro but getting better .......Im hoping to have a detailing meet at mine (telford) in the next 6 weeks or so. Your welcome to bring it up and im sure between a few of us we can get it looking better........I will send you details on what compounds/polish to bring and we will supply the machines and experience. Just an idea buddy. But a full paint correction detail can take days never mind hours lol......

    Other than that I can reccomend some places but your looking at £200+ for a top job.

    Yeah you can tell the difference buddy.
    Did you get the wing sprayed or did it come sprayed?

    Yep my vectra is a different shade to yours, ive not parked next to another vectra in panacotta and it be the same shade as mine (they however all seem to be the same as eachother). Your wing looks the same shade as my car. Carl78 and I had a little photoshoot and there is a very noticable difference between the 2 shades. Mine seems brighter, sharper and not so dull. His car looks like your cars shade.
    THere are 3 colours.....
    L167- Mostly used on vectra c
    1RU =-Mostly used on zafira/astra H

    I found out mine was different when vauxhall sprayed my opel grill moulding, it came back dull and didnt matched. After a trip to the dealers (vxrshop) they discovered my car was a different shade thatn what was printed on my door plate.....The moulding was resprayed in 1RU and is a perfect match.....I was told my car was prob sprayed in the wrong shade, but as it was a dealership car from overseas dont think it mattered.....

    But on the plus size ive got a 3 bedroomed house with a massive garden for the twins, just 1 space on the drive though untill I get the spare cash to have the work done to fit 2 maybe 3 cars on.
