Agreed with quandry . Greg if it's only clear coat scratching and the odd scratch you should be fine. Drop round
to me at some stage and I'll let ye know if theres anything that can be done.

Done the boot bid (without spoiler) tonight...getting quicker and not being as much a total perfectionist..overall a 90% + improvement...parts of the boot weren't accesible due to the location of the spoiler...car was clayed and da'ed with Menzerna Medium Cut polish.

Enjoy:cool:

Good work. If you fancy a career at it mine is next. It's read and need help as the paintwork is dead flat. When do you want to take it away.

Your a legend.

That colour is my favourite of all the Mrk II colours and its great to see the improvement your getting on the car. You will have to do a side by side of the completed car when your done.

My weekends will free right up once this has been done. There's a few stonechips on the door, I will sort these once the paint correction has been done.

Done today: Top Half Drivers door, 2 x Popup lights and went over the wing again from the first day as my technique has improved since then and was able to shift a fair few scrapes that were left there.
