So today's job was a grueller - de-stripe and a full paint correction, apologies in advance for the appalling photo quality...

Stripes coming off...

Followed by Auto Finesse Avalanche snow foam

Then Iron Out

Then a de-tar, clay and ready for the 3 stage correction using Menzerna compounds and pads :D

Best add a few rolls of masking tape to the car

And a few other goodies...

Then the fading light and rain stopped me from getting any decent final shots

I don't think you spent this much time on the Focus ;)


That iron stuff is amazing. Ben and I used it on his 'teg and showed up loads. Loving the Menzerna too, it's all I use for cutting back ;)


Good update :)

Cheers Si, I don't think even the Menzerna would've sorted the RS's paintwork :D

Cheeky heads-up.

In case it doesn't work as not sure if you need to be a member or not but it's a set of seats for £550 which is pretty cheap seeing as I sold a single seat for £300 without the rails which seem to go for £40-£75 depending on side and how desperate the person is.

Looks mint greig, how does the alta intake perform?

Cheers mate ;) it seems to work pretty well! IATs are low even after hard driving. Plus I like the orchestra of raw intake and turbo whistle :D

Cheers! Yeah get rid of that wheelgap and yours will look awesome mate, especially with that m7 splitter fitted ;)

Did you fit the evolve cat Greeig? What's it like if you have? :)

Yeah it's on Si! Fitted it and ran it on the rollers - gave it an extra 15bhp which I was quite impressed with. Its driveable without any drone which is nice and still plenty of pops and bangs, but I still have a Milltek decat pipe lying around so I'm going to fit that in a month or two to see if there's much of a difference in power or noise :D

So the Meister R's got fitted yesterday - such a difference to the Weitecs! Only issue is I got some serious lows so the rears are rubbing far too much... :lol:
