Smile Runner up in New car & Runner up in Best Paint

Here is a couple of photo's (sorry about the quality) from the show where my merc took runner up in the following categories in the arrive and shine

- best new car
- best paint



me cleaning the wheel



My mate Ben dressing the doors





I'm thrilled to have come runner up in these categories and there were some exceptionally clean cars with some very proud owners!

Thanks to everyone who stopped and had a chat with me, a lot of interest in the car & lot of people who were shocked it was mine at the age of 23!

Great show, didn't get everything on my list which is a shame. Some stalls were smaller than i thought.

Lovely car mate and looks like you take care of it very well.
I really like the new front end of these, big improvement from the old ones, looks much more aggressive.

Thanks, Appreciate the comments.

Car was washed, decontaminated.
Then the paint was cleaned using touch prep.
Then one coat of tough coat was applied.
Followed by 2 coats of Swissvax BOS
& two coats of Swissvax onyx.

A quick wipe down with finalie and there you have it!!
