Firstly, big thanks to Gavin (Gralegav) for choosing VII Car Care to work upon his vehicles, his custom is much appreciated!


Total time spent 50 hours. The car had suffered from a poor respray, she arrived looking dull & sorry for herself. So I carried out the usual decontamination process and got her inside. I could tell I had taken on a big job!

So, I knew a cutting combo alone wouldn't shift this so I opted for the amazing Carpro denim pads. I divided the bonnet into half, then split one half into 4 sections, you really do need to keep the working area for these pads to a strict zone, this is how it looked after 3 sets with the 2000 pads & megs 101. The whole car was pretty much like this!

I proceeded onto the rest, keeping an eye on thickness I then went onto the 3000 pads. There were still a few minor swirls present so a light cutting pad was required & then refined. She was finished with Swissvax cleaner fluid & Shield.

I also had the pleasure of Gavin's RB in for my 1 day enhancement detail too, she came out lovely! Hopefully get to sort the swirls out in the near future!

Saw these shots on FB. Very nice the coupe looked pretty horrendous. I will get the T to you at some point as spare time is minimal and being just up the road it would be rude not to.

I'm torn between getting it all cleand up or accepting its not a garge queen and not getting precious over ragging its neck.

Lack of rear seats in the R26R is the reason for getting an R26 instead. :worried:

You can still have a detailed T & still enjoy hooning it! :smiley:
