Race Retro with Swissvax

Just catching up following this weekends Race Retro Show, quite a full on four days, (including the set up)

Hello to everyone I saw, Race Glazer, Tim, Gaz, I’m sure you got away without spending any money Mark Cohen, Jim from Auto perfection.

We shared our stand with the boys from Tygan who make an amazing recreation of the Porsche Speedster www.tygan.com
The black speedster is a limited run of 20 "Gmund Speedsters" designed by Andrew of Swissvax UK in conjunction with Tygan, and yes I'd like one

Not everything went quite according to plan, with both the silver and blue Speedster’s getting quite dirty in route to the show.

A quick wash down, some mineral water, lots of Quick Finish had them looking ok, we spent the rest of the show giving them the full treatment and using them for demo’s, the blue one had only just been painted on Wednesday, so was carefully polished with Cleaner Fluid regular. The paint was surprising, being quite hard allowing some correction by hand with Medium Cleaner Fluid and a bit of elbow grease.

A bit of Wax, and some experimenting with the new Nano Express even putting it between the layers of wax saw some amazing finishes!

Here are some of my favourite pictures from the weekend.

Enjoy, regards Roy.

one of the sexiest cars of all time the wee Speedster. The Chesil is a stunning replica. Beautiful finish with the Swissvax products
