Unique Detail Vs Mini Cooper Finished in Zaino!!

[B]Hi all,
No wow factor here but it was nice to do some Old Skool nostalgia,this cooper was rebuilt and repainted the later end of 2011 and is still not 100% finished but the customer through poor washing had inflicted some light scratching into the paintwork,I was asked to do an Enhancement detail along with the drivers door being wet sanded as this was very heavy in with orange peel.

Camera : IPhone

Location : Dunstable Bedfordshire.

So Here we go a few Pictures the normal washing procedure was carried out but know photos taken as it was freeezing out!

A few pictures of general condition of the paint.













A couple of shots of the wet sanding during before and after.

Nice close up of the dreaded orange peel...I hate it!!









Door almost completed just a little refining to be done here.



All chrome and aluminium was tended to using the twins
Bumpers where buffed with a 75mm spotting pad 3M green.





Id forgotten how fiddly these minis are regards to tapping up this shot was prior to re-wash and Lsp.



And onto the finished item.

The car will be back late 2013 for a full wet sand...looking forward to it.

Thanks for Looking.
