Great work on the S8 - lovely colour for one of those.

You have got great taste in cars by the way - hardly ever see a Carlton these days. Lovely things.

Thank you all for your kind words. I'll do separate Carlton threads when I next give them a good spruce. In the meantime, another few hours with a clay bar and on the grill to get a truly 'wet' look, then a couple of coats of Dodojuice Supernatural. I think I'm there now.

Stunning.
I collected one for a friend a few years ago, did 55 miles to do a 10 miles journey, drove backwards and forwards through the tunnels in Birmingham with the windows open just for the sound of the V8 - beautiful car

After fitting new discs and pads, I've now had the wheels refurbished and cleaned the engine bay. Off the road for a while whilst I fitted a new central locking vaccuum pump. I bought a repair kit in the end.
















If anyone has any suggestions about the rubber door gaitor and what appears to be rrlease agent, I'd be delighted to receive them!

Lovely car mate. A good friend has a 4.2 a8.
Now done well over 250000 miles and still purrs along amazingly well.
Doesn't look as clean as yours mind you.😀😀😀
