I can understand all that Ryan, if life and a 7 week old gets in the way then it has to be done, even if it is still in Winter time. Don't forget full pictures of the ST please.
I can understand all that Ryan, when life gets in the way and a 7 year old to take care of then you have no other choice but to prep your ST in Winter. Looking forward to the finished article.

During the sticker removal and light polish







Not bad really. I just used a single stage autoglym polish and a coat of wax. The paintwork was good to start with. I did use a clay bar prior to all the work.
