    Default ENVY Thanks a lot mate, you`re the man (pic heavy)

    So, late post, but better later than never. As some of you know I strated at a certain paint some interior parts of the car into silver, attempt which at first looked nice but after a while, when I passed my hand on it it kinda leaved some silver marks on the finger. I thought it was the paint. In my struggle I came across one of Envy`s posts where he did something similar to his door handles. After a quick chat, we decided to give it a try on a Sunday (when the weather was still warm). Arrived on the site, we started by claying the car, washing, waxing, washing again (and so many other things I don`t even remember) and so one and the whole day was gone . I will let the pictures do the talking. I must say that the car looks AMAZING. Chris did his best, it`s a master piece, it still looks great (after 1 month) and ….CHRIS….you`re the man mate….
    Thanks a lot Chris…I owe you BIG time !!!
















    As you can see here, there are some stubborn stains of tar, that couldn`t be removed not even with some tar removal…I dunno…what do you think ? How could I remove them ?








    Courtesy of Chris, it is so much more lights inside the car after mod  (happy wife, more light for make up)






    The MASTER at work


    No wheel (went with the wheel for a wash)


    Nice reflection



    Both of them, after the work was done




    Another post with the painted door handles will come when they will be ready, they look amazing btw, get ready to be amazed !!!
    Chris, you`re the man, once again, thanks a lot mate!!!!

    Looks like a good day had by all. car looks great btw. I dont think its tar looks more like blobs of paint/over spray try using some thinners to remove marks then repolish.

    Hi All

    Yep it was a good 6.5 hour day :-)

    First off I attacked the spots with AG Intensive Tar remover but it wern't happening. God knows what they are.

    We then sponge washed the car.

    We then clayed the whole car including lights and glass.

    We then washed it again then dried it.

    We then attacked the paint with AG SRP.

    Attacked the lights with some rubbing compound then AG Glass polish.

    AG Glass polished all side windows.

    Rain X the front and read screens (Twice)

    Removed all wheels and washed / AG Intensice Tar remover then dried.

    Then sealed them a bit with AG SRP.

    Dressed all tyres

    Fitted 8 smd interior leds bulbs (my spares) Great for his wife's makeup lol.

    AG Bumper care all plastics (and i mean all plastics!)

    Painted some interior plastics for him but the paint was not that good so I have redone them from scratch with some VX Astro Silver Metallic paint.

    Sinless is a great chap and I thoroughly enjoyed his visit to me. Such a nice bloke.

    God did I ache next day but as you can see I need a bit of building up and a tummy reduction lol.

    No hope for the lack of hair though, 2 out of three can't be bad.

    Cheers mate It was a good day
