    Default A bit more detailing done today (have paused for lunch)

    So jobs today so far. I have quite a list to get done but this is how I have got on so far.

    Removed all wheels and clean the arches then AG back to black them.
    Cleaned the Calipers.
    Replaced a missing X from the caliper decals but I only have a small X to fill the whole. Will fix soon.
    Glossed the decals as mine seem not to stick very well.
    Washed and polished all wheels and dressed the tyres.
    Started to Polish the rear quater panel and passenger door with AG Ultra Deep Shine (by hand only)

    All in all so far so good. Well get back out there in around 30 mins to carry on.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Time seems to fly when I do this. Was hoping to get more done before lunch but I will be back out very soon.

    Thanks very much all.

    I remember back to how it was and how it is now. Such a difference but a hell of a lot of effort involved.

    Managed to get some more panels polished but I must admint the heat was getting to me so I spent as much time in the vec with the A/C on.

    Doing another BBQ now but back out later to finish the polish and take some photos.
