    De-Badged and Polished

    As the weather was nice, Simon (Sjdickso) sorted the paint on my car again. I filled in all the stone chips and scratches on the car, and Simon flatted and buffed them up. While at it, the SXI badges were also removed.






    Reflection Shots:







    Si has again done a superb job, and I've picked up some more hints and tips for doing this sort of stuff myself.

    Paint is in very good condition for 5 year old, and I'm starting to enjoy owning it again. Also just swapped all the lights for tinted ones, which looks much better against the blue paint.

    Badge removal and dark lights are nice touches. Colour coding the handles and strips would look good, and would make it easier to polish for next time around

    Very nice indeed mate! Thats looking superb.
    My motor is in flame red-i'm managing to keep on top of the notorious fading syndrome in this colour but it chips so easily, I understand it's a very soft paint.
    (If anyone can provide any tips or links to touching up paint tips i'd be super greatful btw)
