Small mod: Changed the screws on the adjustable spoiler to stainless steel, cheap to do and looks alot fresher.

Did you not fancy having a crack at refurbing the wheels?

You've done such a stirling job on the body work. I'm sure you'd find the wheels a doddle!

Unfortunately its bucketing AND very bright out, so these pics don't do the job any justice but them look fantastic...cheers to Colm and Mark in wheelwizards.ie, talking to them you can tell they are passionate about what they do. Delighted with the job

No need for before shots as they were a disgrace

Really looks the business man-do you mind me asking how much it cost to get the wheels done? And did you have to take the wheels off and drop them off or just leave in the whole car?

I left the car in...324euro all in for the 4 (Includes tyres on/off, etc)

to be honest it seems alot but I have the car a year and had €0 depreciation...well thats how I'm going to justify it anyway :o

I can't recommend wheel wizards highly enough, they are truely passionate about what they do.

Re: Cosmos Blue Rev 5 MR2 Detailing 4 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 106
For 112,000 mls the leather is in great nick on the mr2...the usual wear on the drivers bolster has gotten steadily worse since I owned it. Done a bit of research and lots of products that claim to restore like new and lots of these breach the €50 mark..anyway I found some furniture leather balm that others swear by.

So I went with Grison leather restorer balm...works out at £11.50 delivered and comes in massive 300ml jar enough to last a lifetime tbh. I precleaned the bolster with AG leather cleaner...so far I've only massaged 3 coats off this stuff in 2 yesterday (with 2-3 hours in between coats) and 1 today.

...the results speak for themselves. Not too sure how longevity is concerned but someone on the Mercedes forum said they have got 2 years out of the coat so far!

Grison Leather Balm & AG Leather cleaner.

Got my mr2 all nice and straight this morning. Used this guy(quickdent.info/)...he was tapping away at the dent like father ted for an hour and a half and got all the dents out - the guys a genius.

I had a few small ones in the boot (and one big one)
Panel on the side was creased when a cyclist wanker kicked it
The fuel cover was dented by someone in a car park
The fuel cap surround on the body had a nicr ding (was there when I bought it)

anyway he charged €80 for the above repairs, definately recommended

His number is: 085 7057058

tried to take a few pics of the dents but they didnt really show well on the camera

EDIT Found a few pics:

Wish I took more pics but heres the dent that was at the fuel cap. I tried taking pics but you couldnt really see the dents in them

was pretty cool to watch - he used bars and hammer - PDR at its finest

It was a bit like the video below for a while, but thankfully it was all good, he told me the metal has good memory and needs a lot of force to straighten out.

Busy getting through the mini-projects on this car, reckon it will be long sold before I get to some of the stuff.

First off , some nightbreakers plus - to tone down the yellow hue -

Nightime:

AFTER:

Side by Side (Driver = Osram Nightbreaker Plus, Passenger = Generic)


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


The Finished article:


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


Overall it did tone now the yellowness, but not the HID white I was hoping for -ah well


-----------------------------------------

Next moved onto the dodgy trim, which has been begging to be done since forever:

couple of side by Side of the Door Trim - it's a shame tyoyota charge over €100 for this part as I'd just renew it..

Used autofiness trim reviver


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

Finished:


_KUNENA_BBCODE_HIDEIMG

-----------------

Next moved onto the gaskets around the door handles , Toyota of course charge €100 for these, why so much? Because you can't buy the gasket seperately you need to buy the entire handle!

Drivers side wasn't the worst and came up nice with the dressing:

AFTER:

Passsenger Side was alot worse it went from brilliant white to a adark grey - I'll have to revisit this one!

A snowfoam lance is on its way to me so I will finally get her finished shes still quite clean but needs some DA work again on top of drivers door.
