My car and it’s progress(will be added to)
« on: 27 March 2021, 22:06 »
Thought I’d do a quick post so I can keep a record of how my car started....and see how it ends up.



Car as standard.




Wheels Changed to cmwheels Pretoria copies and PS4 tyres.



Footrest added.









Roof wrapped very pleased with it ,and all my own work.


Next will be mirrors wrapped and possibly fitting the lip spoiler I’ve bought.....not certain wether to or not just yet.

New Gel plates as I hate ones with screw caps.

Also like that we no longer have eu plates.

Yesterday(and today)was all about car cleaning.

Car has been cleaned,clayed decontaminated etc to within an inch of its life,polished with a da then cleaned down and purely to satisfy my curiosity I tried out a diy ceramic coating. I was just curious how well they work so thought I’d give it a try.I opted for the Auto Finesse caramics kit,this consists of 4 individual kits inside,a ceramic kit for each of paint,wheels,glass and interior.
I’ve used the paint and glass kits so far they were very easy to use,and I think the results are pretty impressive for a kit that is priced at £100(I paid £53 using various discounts).admittedly they only last around 12 months but still good value if they last anywhere near that length of time. Wheels will be coming off tomorrow so that I can clean and coat them properly.
