    Detailed my m8's Nova today

    My m8 picked up a 1.2 Nova for 100 notes a couple of months ago....Not the best condition as u can imagine.
    He's spent alot of time tidying it up & just dropped a Redtop in it last weekend.
    But he's never given it a propper detailing....thats where i came in,lol.
    Every panel was a different colour,there was tar up the sides & primer from where the engine bay had been welded & sprayed.
    I spent 6 hours on it,wased/waxed it,dried it & then did every panel individually........3 layers of T-cut & 3 layers of polish!!
    Then did the inside.
    Heres the results (didnt get any before pics tho)..........

    If T cut achieved that then it did its job. Red can look great if its looked after. Top job - well done. Just how old is that Nova ?

    At the least he can keep it for 12 months then get a £2000 trade in against a new car...
