Default The black fozz from hell!!!

Saturday's effort, a favour for a mates dad, and it was a much bigger task than I thought.

to take this:



And make it shine.........the pic is indicative of the whole cars finish













I'm pleased to say it worked out pretty good!!!


















It was only a 2 stage polish I.P on Green and F.F on blue. I would have preferred to go a step further and FF on white as I know there was more in it but I had to call it quits.

Finished with Natty's blue, I would have used P21S but I know the longevity is not great unless you get the opportunity to layer it, hopefully I will top it up next week with another layer of Nattys.

I will be back to spend another day on my mates car a WRX of the same colour but marginally better condition.

....I noticed that too but he admits he simply wasn't able to finish it off as he would have liked (sounds like he ran out of time). Either way, I think it looks terrific considering what he started out with. Good job k00ky.

Yes it may be a little haze from the LSP, I wanted to take some pics before the sun dissapeared completly and was in a rush to get it out of the garage. I did a final buff over with a clean MF to pick up the residue.

Either way I will have another look at it this coming weekend to check if it's holograms from the buff, it well could be as I did run out of time to really give it the full treatment, ideally I would have liked another few hours but timing just did not permit.

Fine job there kooky! Looks great. Yeah, you had to get inside before one of the 10 billion dangerous animals in Australia came out for the night! After watching the Discovery Channel, I'm not coming to your country with anything less than carbon fiber leggings!!!!!! Have a good one Down Under.........

No way you would get those imperfections out by hand!!!

Festool Rotex was the machine used, Edge pads Menzerna polishes and 8 hours approx.
