    Trim : SRi Nav

    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Mileage : 130k

    Default Started to repair my paintwork

    After my horrendous trip to tesco's (see here) I decided to try and fix what I can by hand.

    It will need the DA treament after. This is just to make me feel a bit better as its hurts driving around in the state it's in.

    Wiped down the car with a damp cloth to remove any dust / grit.

    Then using black hole gave the whole body the once over.

    I don't have the wax I want at the moment so I used AG Extra Gloss protection for the meantime.

    It has made a big difference and lots of swirls are gone or at least hidden but look close and its not perfect by any means.

    Anyhow a good way to lose four hours in a day

    The first shot is a panel before I attacked it. The whole car is like that.
