Plan is Scholl S20 Black with green CG Hex pads. Also have some Koch Chemie H8 left if I need to up my game plan.

As I don't have a drive or garage, my main issue is finding parking outside the house

So today weather held out and managed to some paint correction. Decided to work on the bonnet.



So firstly the decon, BH Korrosol didn't show up much and a quick clay using the farecla mitt and then a once over with BH medium clay.



Then a few inspection pics




Tried Scholl S20, but I think the 11 year old paint was a bit too much and in the end it was Koch Chemie H8.02 using the green CG Hex Logic pad and finished off with Scholl S40 and red LC red hydrotech.




Then finished off with a coat of CG bkacklight and a BH DSW as lsp.





Not exactly perfect but for a 11 year old daily driver, I'm a happy chappy!!

So... bit of a revive and also an update.

After a very very long time (work,life,health) managed to grab some time today and give the car some more much needed TLC.

Managed to work on the rear door panel which was laden with swirls and kids sun lotion hand prints.

Washed the panel down using Meguiar's Wash Plus+, awesome product to use highly recommended.

So to start with a few pics of the general condition ( Always hate it when the car is washed and those hand prints stick out like a sore thumb)

As you can see the paint is rather flat and tired looking.

Couple of pics,... work in progress. Didn't really expect too much from the paint in all honesty.

And the final result..

Last but not least, who doesn't love a decent reflection shot (pity the weather was a bit dull today)

Not bad for someone who doesn't have a garage or driveway to work from, or any of those flash worklights (should I still invest in one, even though I work outside??)

Thanks for stopping by.

It's nice to turnaround an old daily driver. Shiny new supercars can only get shinier I suppose.
